Yep. I agree with this 100%. And I say this as someone in the fairly disappointed camp. Season 3 had some of the most incredible moments of television/film I've ever seen. There are parts of it that will definitely stay with me forever. That summer consisted of my wife and I running home from wherever we were to connect a laptop to the TV and hitting refresh over and over (feeling slightly panicky at times when the awful CraveTV hadn't made it live until 9:05). The next morning I would download a beautiful looking copy of it because it looked like shit on CraveTV and we would watch it again that night. I can't remember having that much fun with live television before!
But, yeah, overall I ended up being disappointed. I just can't get into the Annie/Diane & Diane/Naido switch; the random characters and their drama at the roadhouse; and, most of all, the absolutely terrible Cole/Cooper ret-con stuff. I don't even want to get into the green glove thing. Ugh. I'd say I was 100% on board with TP:TR until episode 17. I really liked where episode 18 went but 17 was just so terribly rushed and, well, just bad. IMO.
February has always Twin Peaks month for me. I'd rewatch season 1 + 2 + FWWM. For two decades now! I couldn't do it this year. I just couldn't bring myself to watch any of the old stuff at all. For Christmas my mother in law bought me TP:TR Bluray boxset. I felt like such an asshole when I opened it because I was happy for the incredible gift but I realized that I was still pretty angry inside about it all and I think that some of that came across in my face. The only thing that I have watched from that was the 'Man With The Elevated Grey Hair' documentary series. Which I actually think I enjoyed more than TP:TR.
Anyway, I hope that it grows on me. I just don't know when I will be able to go back to it. I just don't know if I want to invest any more of my time in it. Damn, it hurt to type that last sentence...
