    Did anyone watch after the reveal who/what killed Laura Palmer?

    David Lynch has left the project. He's no longer involved.

    Well whoever is in charge, they are actually doing it. I just drove past their film crew set up in the transmission repair shop outside of town here.

    Watched (suffered through) both premiere episodes on Showtime. If you are annoyed by lack or clarity, lack of exposition, making huge plot assumptions and lack of forward motion in films, then this will drive you batshit. Ii had a few really good moments (and a few "cool, I remember that" scenes) so I can see promise and will watch the next episode but man oh man this thing is sooo slooow it was like waiting for spring in November.

    Watched the latest episode Sunday, and WTF!!! It was so droning and incoherent I almost stopped watching. Regrettably, I stuck with it.

    Is the original worth watching?

    Hate to disagree Randy, but the original was quirky and fun. The characters were pretty well developed, and other than a few totally obtuse episodes, it was entertaining.

    The only scene that provoked a chuckle last Sunday was when the sheriff put the sign on his office door. It was a picture of a doughnut with DISTURB under it. Funny.

    Ah, disagree we will. I thought it was stupid and idiotic. Also incomprehensible. And I watched it all the way till it ended. Which thankfully it did.
    But maybe I'm biased because I was an extra in the pilot movie in the Double R diner scenes and never once saw myself on screen. Yeah, sure that's the reason. :rolleyes:

    Last Sunday's Ep was Brilliant! Lynch being Lynch. Just Wow!

    Show has been an incredibly rewarding experience. Visual storytelling on another level that requires you to engage with it. Lynch at his best.

    You can have your Game Of Thrones. Twin Peaks has been brilliant and some of the best television I have seen in a long time. Kyle MacLachlan deserves an Emmy. Bravo to Lynch and Co!

    I saw the initial 2 episodes of the reboot. It was interesting but I told myself that it required a binge watch session to keep up with everything. If you didnt see the original series, or cant remember it, you will me scratching your head.

    I do love the surreal atmosphere Lynch can create with just some funky carpet, velvet drapes and some mechanical machinery grinding noises (or better yet prolonged face shots with no expression and complete silence)
    . Brilliant.
