I watched the first series, all the while not convinced I was truly getting it. The consensus seems to be that the second year is a stinker, so I googled who killed Laura and skipped to the most recent year. Watched two and a bit episodes but just felt completely unmoved.

The thing is, it’s one of those where I’m completely prepared to accept it’s my fault. I know people love it, I know it’s working on levels I’m just not understanding. So yes, glad I tried it, but not for me.

I realise this is months and months later, but even with what you've said about Twin Peaks here, you should give the film a go, Fire Walk With Me. I'm a big Lynch fan, and I always thought Twin Peaks was okay, but never felt as passionate about it as other people. The film, however, is brilliant, and works as a standalone thing I think, even if you don't understand every bit of it. It's only two hours of your time for what I consider to be Lynch's second or third best film.

The third season is also brilliant, and finally gave me a Twin Peaks series that I thought was up there with Lynch's best films, but it's a really slow burn, and the audience enjoyment is much more dependent on knowledge of the earlier seasons than the film is.

heard someone say today that the reason there hasn't been such an outcry by so many musicians over all this carry on is because of clauses in their recording contracts, is that feasible?

Finally giving Dexter a go, only about 12 years after it was first recommended to me. It's pretty light but somehow engaging at the same time. I like it.
