The Show (2020)

Arguably the more legitimate sucessor to the original two Twin Peaks series and movie, in spirit, energy, humour, and jaw-dropping weirdness, than Lynch's own more recent, tired pastiche. Really good production on what was probably a shoestring budget, fresh faces, fantastic performances, bizarro plot.

Looks cool. I'll see if I can find it.

Tom Burke does his moody/detective acting as in the TV versions of J K Rowling's Robert Galbrath's Cormoran Strike series. This is a good thing. His moody/detective acting is very engaging. It does look fun, so I shall consult James to see about his finest copy.

We'll have to agree to differ over TP season 3, which I found superb.

I'd not seen him before, and most of the rest of the cast -- much like the original TP outings featured a cast of relative unknowns. Bringing the same cast back after 30 years was maybe a sop to hardcore fans, but it showed an alarming lack of imagination and daring (for Lynch), deeply damaging to the integrity of the enterprise.

We are in agreement as I suggested

Heh... I thought he was named after the bird, not a Cornish giant.

So did I for most of the first series.

I have formed this half-baked theory from our discussions: American weirdness is less familiar and therefore more interesting to Brits (even on repeat), and vice versa.  :-/
