Stuff like that belongs in a Star Trek episode or a Back to the Future sequel. No matter how artsy the last two episodes were, at the end if all came down to a cliched Star Trek/Outer Limits-like time travel gone wrong plot. Ugh.
But Major Briggs traveling through time didn't bother you?
Do you mean in the original? As far I can remember, he had visions of the future. That and time working different in the lodges is something different than a character travelling literally physically into the past and interacting with it to change the "timeline". That's a Star Trek plot.
I mean, it's nothing new for either Twin Peaks or Lynch.
Fred saying "Dick Laurent is dead" in LH and one of Laura Dern's alter egos turning out to be the stranger in the soundstage in IE
But I guess dugpa forum posters are a higher authority on what belongs in Twin Peaks than David Lynch and Mark Frost. Ah, internet.
