    The fact that nobody has opined on this thread speaks volumes, doesn’t it?
    As a longtime Lynch fanatic, I’m hoping for the best, but prepared for the (absolute) worst.
    Truth be told, there isn’t a single movie opening this summer that I’m as enthused about as the tantalizing prospect of 18 hours of Lynch-directed cable television.
    Fingers crossed.

    It has a good chance of being great, I imagine, but I’d be more enthusiastic if it were going to be on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, or HBO Now, because those are the services I’m paying for now, and I don’t really want to cough up for another one. So I expect I’ll come to it way after the fact. I’ll try to maintain my optimism until then.

    I feel your pocket book pain, Yancy.
    I purposely held onto Showtime after the recent “Homeland” season ended just for “Twin Peaks.”

    I’m excited as hell. I rewatched Fire, Walk With Me last night and it holds up. Also watched the pilot. It, too, holds up, although all the rotary dial phones, even in 1990, were funny. Gonna rewatch the whole series before this starts.

    As it stands this may be the last Lynch directed project we ever get so I’m gonna savor it and go into it with arms open.

Feature films are suffering a kind of bad time right now, in my opinion, because the feature films that play in theaters are blockbusters. That seems to fill the theaters, but the art-house cinema is gone. If I made a feature film, it might play in L.A. and New York, a couple of other places, for a week in a little part of a cineplex, and then it would go who knows where. I built this to be on the big screen. It will be on a smaller screen, but it’s built for the big screen. You want a feature film to play on a big screen with big sound, and utilize all the best technology to make a world. It’s really tough after all that work to not get it in the theater. So I say that cable television is a new art house, and it’s good that it’s here.”
