Hopefully they won't ignore FWWM, since it's important for the new series.
a Twin Peaks and David Lynch Electrical Resource

Overall, I think S2 is just as strong as S1, if not more so. And I wish Lynch, Frost and everyone associated with the "old" Twin Peaks would stop behaving like they're kinda ashamed of S2 whenever the subject's brought up. It is what it is, with all its faults and all its greats (the latter far outweigh the former, I should say) and, hey, look where it got us 25 years later

It seems to me the people that bailed were casual viewers who just wanted to have the mystery of Laura Palmer solved.

This allows one more Sunday for FWWM before season 3 begins. Seems like a possibility....

I mean, be honest… if you'd stumbled on the show now in the middle of the Little Nicky or Evelyn Marsh subplots, would you say to yourself, "Wow, this is really something I need to watch?"

It lacks any mystery or tension. Earle never nabs anyone we care about (though he stalks them) , so there's really nothing left except seeing him torture Leo, which gets old real quick.
Only when Earle throws aways the chess game and becomes the foil to lure Cooper into the Lodge does he become interesting IMHO.
