On episode 2. Please tell me this gets better.

If not, why was this so popular?

David Lynch. That's all you need to know, that lets you know it's gonna be weird, and you might not get it, not at first. But once you figure out David Lynch's particular brand of crazy, everything makes sense. Sort of.

Yeah, I expected weird. Then a lady introduces a log to the nice FBI agent and I'm thinking "and this us just the second episode".

Everybody looks like someone else. Laura's mom looks like Adrienne Barbeau, Laura's best friend looks like Winona Rider. The fishing guy looks like Dave Thomas. But nome of them are those people.

I figure Agent Cooper is talking to Diane via his tape recorder, so either Diane is Cooper's split personality and he needs the tape recorder to communicate to his other half, or she is the murderer. Or maybe we won't be introduced to the murderer until the last episode and it's none of the people. Lynch!!! Mad

At least you made it longer than DSgrouse before asking if it would get better. Razz

Made it 2 minutes into episode 3. Done. Stupidest thing I've ever watched. Worse than Vibes.

It is very dated and a very acquired test that, with time, is less and less for everyone.

You're killing me.

Watched it in it's original run and then a forum member loaned us the whole series on DVD. Still was great.

Mark, I don't understand guitar pedals. And I was a 70's garage band member. You stick to fuzz and I'll keep Mr. Lynch.

Whatever happened to the reprise? Never heard anything after it was green lighted.

ETA, Premiers May 21, 2017. I'm pumped.

There's only 7 episodes for Season 1. You really couldn't finish the entire season?

And for everyone else, I'll just leave these here:

That's just it. I expected to like it as I've seen and enjoyed most of Lynch's movies. Blue Velvet was one of my favorites. Elephant Man, yes! Wild at Heart, yep. Even liked Dune. I guess I may have got into it more had I sat through it 27 years ago. Now it just felt like they were trying too hard to capitalize on the Lynch-style weird theatre for weirdness' sake. It made me not care about the characters or story.
