For its numerous moments of genuine soap, it has as many moments of the gravest, most profound art.
And then those moments where the two combine, which are truly transcendental.
Also, the concept of honor. By the 2000's, it had become possible to convey the idea of honor only in reference to crime. Our culture had fallen by then.
Twin Peaks was made at the peak of the Empire.


That series was nuts.. only the first few episodes made any sense, then David Lynch lost the making-any-sense plot.. along with his mind? :-s


How dare you.

No, only the first 16 episodes made sense.

Thats when the killah was discovered and died. Then, the show had become so lucrative that they made another 16 episodes which did indeed fail to make sense.

About 5 episodes of the original 16 were directed by Lynch. These stand out to me as THE best art on the screen ever to have been produced.
The remainder of there episodes is directed by anywhere from bad to mediocre to fairly decent directors. Which gives the show an incredibly inconsistent quality.

I’ve gotten into twee British murder mysteries.. Midsomer Murders, Grantchester, Lewis, Morse, Endeavour, Vera, Foyles War, Poirot, Miss Marple, etc.

Had to look up "twee". What a twee word.
