Although we still haven't re-watched Twin Peaks Fire Walk with Me, Jeff and I started the new season on Showtime. We watched the first three episodes twice. I still don't understand what's going on, but I'm not as lost.
One major issue for me: the show has no charm. In the original Agent Cooper was enchanted by fresh air, pines, cherry pie and coffee. The characters were quirky and intriguing. The new season is lacking all that. It's hardly in Twin Peaks at all: the original show characters mostly appear as cameos.
For now I'll keep watching and hope the charm returns.
