Perhaps the situation you're referring to (behind your hyperbole) should be expected, considering that this is a Twin Peaks/David Lynch fan forum? In fact I'm not sure there's a place on the entire internet where yours and others' 'profoundly disappointed' sentiments, especially after all these weeks/months, seem more ill-placed. Virtually every single place I've seen/heard the new season discussed has had more positive energy about it than this, a Twin Peaks/Lynch forum. There's been so much enthusiasm surrounding the new season, such open-mindedness, such warmth to its aims. But coming here, one would never know it.
Those of you still coming here to (do little or nothing but) complain about the new season--why? If it was me, I'd let the people who did enjoy it have their fun. That would seem to be the more high-minded option. At worst, some of the posts in this thread are motivated by bitterness and/or out-right mean-spiritedness, and in their self-absorption and determination for others to get as little enjoyment out of something as they have, do not warrant sincere engagement. There is of course a place for constructive criticism--but this is something else.
And why do you come to this thread? Do you feel endangered by one measly thread on this entire forum devoted to the season's woes and weaknesses? No one's forcing you to come here and read the posts that spoil your fun with the new series, so why do it? As I see it, folks here are mostly keeping to their own thread, they don't venture onto other threads and lecture those who enjoyed the show for what it was (and wasn't) and try to influence their opinion - so who's really bothering who here? Wanna talk about mean-spiritedness, bitterness, negative energy and self-absorption? How about Lynch's recent statement that Season 2 sucked?
