Well, the third season of Twin Peaks was a nope for me. I get that it's been 25 years and that it's not reasonable to expect it to be the same as the old series because TV has long since changed, but the producers sure took advantage of the newfound freedoms provided by their new TV network.

It wasn't because I thought it was terrible. It was because it had become "not my cup of tea," whereas the old series very much was. Too much sex, too much violence, the F-word peppering almost every sentence, and scenes that dragged on for so long that I grew bored and scrolled through Instagram until it ended. There was nothing in it that I had loved about the previous seasons. It was too dark and depressing for me. I didn't even finish the tenth episode.

I hated to drop it, because I normally don't drop what I start, but I wasn't going to drag myself through another six hours of it when I wasn't even enjoying myself. I cared what happened to the characters, but I read a mild spoiler stating nothing is really resolved in the end anyway. Nope, not going to put up with that.





I'm glad I pirated it. I would've cancelled my subscription before the month was out.
