Been watching Twin Peaks recently on Netflix, boy has it not aged well.

Yeah, Craig T Nelson at least. I'm not sure if Dober or Luther will be back.

Has anyone else been watching the new Twin Peaks?  The tone is very different than the original.  It seems like they dialed down the camp and cranked up the surrealism.  I'm sure some (many?) people may prefer the quirky, soap opera vibe of the OG, but I much prefer the darker, more experimental vibe of this new one.  For example, Episode 8 went full blown fever dream for about 45 minutes straight and it was amazing (no way they could have gotten away with that on ABC in 1990).

What do you guys think?

You never drink alone when you have something good to listen to.

The wife hadn't seen all of the OG's second season, or Fire Walk With Me, so we're re-watching the original series first before we start the new one.

Most of season 2 is flaming garbage, I wouldn't waste your time. 

If you must though, the ones David Lynch directed are decent, especially the killer reveal and the last episode.

Fire Walk With Me is awesome though.

Completely agree all the way around. After Laura's killer was revealed is when my wife quit watching it back when it was on the air and I wanted her to know about the Black/White lodge in case it came up in the new series.

We're actually having a little fun doing an MST3K-type thing with the shitty second half of the second season. I had to teach her how MST3K-ing something works, but now that she's gotten it it's pretty damned funny.

I can't wait until we watch Fire Walk With Me, that is such a great movie.

Oh yeah, I definitely MST'd that shit when my wife watched it last year, only way it's bearable. 

Then you get to the last episode and remember why you were watching in the first place.

I just recently discovered the show, thanks to it popping up on my Netflix suggestions.

After seeing your endorsements, I think I need to find a copy of Fire Walk with Me since Netflix and Amazon Prime don't have it.
