Twin Peaks (2017)

I don't think I have ever been offended by a tv show before. But here we are and Twin Peaks is on, and it might just be garbage.

In trying to work out the mess that is Twin Peaks season 3, it came to me that where the real Twin Peaks tv show was the 50s (and had a story), Twin Peaks season 3 is the 80s, and that's sort of why it's so shit. No story, no fashion sense, no reason to watch other than the thin hope some of the many threads left dangling at the end of Season 2 might have some tying off. If I'm being kind, I'll say Twin Peaks' season 3 is True Detective's season 2. But I think it might be worse than that. There is, it seems to me, almost nothing in the show to care about. Anything that was worth caring about in the Twin Peaks story is almost never included in Twin Peaks season 3 except tangentially, and I think it might keep going that way. And with that in mind, those musical outros are sufficiently irritating that I might on principle stop watching the show. A summary of what little did happen over the next eight weeks will probably be enough.

Yeah, and don't clutch at straws: episode 8 was cool, but it was essentially a completely different story, and the one they should have been telling all along.

"Not the 50s anymore" spoilers: what clues you in to the how Twin Peaks is no longer the 50s, I mean among all the other roaring signals, is that worthlessly "important" scene at the end of episode 9 where two girls - a Laura clone and a Donna clone - sit around stoned and stupid at the One Eyed Jack's Bang Bang bar. You can tell by the hairstyles and the pimples, it's not the fifties no more. And who, I mean who, really gives a damn?
There is so much good we can do in this world, why not kill all the pigeons too?
