I'm really excited about this. It could turn out to be, well, bad. But I'm going to hope for the best.

We used to have Twin Peaks parties in 90/91, complete with pie, coffee, and donuts. Happy memories.

The Lynch-directed episodes were always the coolest... and he's directing all of the new episodes.  8)

I'm cautiously optimistic. I'm trying to balance the nostalgia with the realities of how the show has aged and what story Lynch may have to tell "25 years later."

I can't deny reliving how much fun it was then. My friends and I were all-in on the show; Viewing parties, coffee, donuts, the books, the music. Just about every "quirky," unconventional show made in the last 20+ years owes its existence to Twin Peaks, and maybe that's its true legacy; How much it changed the landscape of television forever.
There is no spoon. Which sucks because I have a pudding cup.

I'm very excited about this. Sure, it's possible it might be a train wreck, but Lynch and Frost have had a long time to think about how they might follow up what they did on the show. Also, the run of shows is only 9 episodes, so that's short enough to keep both Lynch and Frost engaged through the entire run.

Now, if the 9 are successful and Showtime orders another 7 seasons, I'll be a little worried...
