TVline put Twin Peaks as one of the "losers" of summer.

LOSER: Twin Peaks: The Return
Showtime touts subscribers gained via the revival’s arrival; we see sometimes barely 200,000 making it a priority to watch in real time. Some see deep-dive homages to auteur David Lynch’s lifelong oeuvre; we also see a lot of self-indulgent water-treading (including wayyyy too much Dougie). Some hail the potential for eventual payoff; we prefer to see the inarguable entertainment value in any given episode.

As this list’s editor, I assure you that the Twin Peaks caption reflects the opinion of at least three senior TVLine editors (myself included). Nothing is being retracted. Disagreement is welcome. The world is not of one hive mind. –Mgmt.

Well, as long as they're enjoying Power and World of Dance!

Not surprising from TV Line though, as Michael Ausiello hates everything about TP except Season 1 and coffee and pie and had a complete hysterical meltdown after the first four eps. They're the outliers at the moment.

Also, that TVLine blurb is poorly written -- it seems to imply that there IS "inarguable entertainment value" in every episode, but I'm pretty sure that wasn't the intent.

What they're saying is that they're not getting entertainment value in every episode and that they shouldn't have to wait for the eventual payoff at the end to make every episode seem worthwhile.

Yeh, but it's worded poorly. They should have said "we WOULD prefer to see..." The way it's written implies that there is entertainment value.

I posted Kyle's Q&A videos from this morning on YouTube if anyone wants a hardcopy of the full session.

It doesn't look like anybody connected with this has any talk show appearances lined up to promote the finale. Anyone know anything different?

Wondering how long it'll take for a blu-ray set (with extras!!!) will be released. Anyone know how long these things usually take with tv series?
I believe all these phenomena that our putted-up egos and busy ant minds persist in trying to label, categorize, penetrate, and comphrehend, all spring from this same uncanny source. This is the mother of all "others".

I don't know, but if you look at another Showtime series, "Ray Donovan", Season 4 ended last September, and the DVD was released in December.

Tonight is going to be very bittersweet for me. Thank you to this forum. I've enjoyed Twin Peaks even more with this web site.

Yes, thanks everyone. Twin Peaks has been such a salve for me, and a mirror. It's strange that this is probably it. I'll talk about it once it's over, but unless there's a season 4, I don't think I'll be posting for a long time. I've seen so much I never would have without being here.

I'm not understanding why Comcast's On Demand doesn't yet have Part 18 up. All the other parts were available instantly after airing. They have Part 18 labeled in HD, but it's actually Part 17. Then in SD they have Part 17 listed correctly. I don't watch the episodes live, but rather On Demand, although I did DVR these last two and was able to watch Part 18 in a lower quality, because DVR has a poorer picture than On Demand.
