I will add that even if Lynch tried with all of his might to recreate the tone and feel of the original, it would have been virtually impossible for him. There are many factors involved, including coincidences, timing and luck. So it doesn't have to be a conscious effort. A new series done in a different time, shot differently, with 25 years of baggage, personal evolution, unconscious change of taste etc.....it's unavoidable.

That is simply the case with change in general.
If a band changes it's style of music, some of their fans wont be happy because part of what they loved was the band doing that particular style of music. And their voices of dissent will naturally be loudest at first, and will quiet down as some of them will jump ship and stop caring much after that, and others will find some way to appreciate it later.
In other words, this is not unique to the world of TP or Lynch, but a general phenomenon. What actually matters is argumentation. Why is it good, why is it bad....what do people prioritize in a show etc.
