    If you're a fan of David Lynch's schtick, the first season is great. The second season really goes off the rails, and not necessarily in a good way. Lynch was upset by ABC's interference in his vision of the show and I think it shows on screen during the second season.

    I was obsessed with it when it was on, so much so that I actually paid money and went to a theater to see Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me when it came out (a mistake, in hindsight). Agree that the first season was incredible, then it got progressively stranger as it went on. I stuck with it till the end, but you gotta love Lynch's style to get into it.

    I was obsessed with the show when it came out. The first season is amazing. Yes, the second season wandered around aimlessly. They obviously had no plan for where they wanted to take the show.

    I was lucky to be taking a film class in college at the time. The TA loved the show as well and every week we would spend 10-15 minutes going over that week's episode.

    I started watching the series this summer. I haven't finished it yet. It seemed to start strong in the first season, but in the second season, it faltered. From what I understand, there was a lot of pressure by TPTB to solve the mystery and move the show forward. I ruined the show.

    I started watching the show because of Psych's tribute to it, which I didn't understand.

    The movie wasn't too bad. But you have to watch the whole TV series first, otherwise the movie won't make any sense. icon_lol.gif

    I enjoyed FWWM, though Moira Kelly was a poor substitute for Lara Flynn Boyle and Sheryl Lee looked way too hagged out to play a teenager in high school. In hindsight, I think Sheryl Lee looking the way she did was part of the fun.

    I watched it on TV when it first aired and really loved it. Oftentimes the plot was out there and the characters were off the wall, like the log lady but I looked forward to it each week..

    Loved the first season, but it was too bad that most people lost interest after it was revealed who killed Laura Palmer. And I think it still has one of the best soundtracks of any TV show.

    It's interesting that David Lynch originally planned Mulholland Drive as a TV series. I loved the final movie, but I've always wondered how it would have played out on the small screen.

    The first season was so good when David Lynch was still looking after the show, when he left to take care of film duties during the second the whole thing veered off into mediocre quality..........

    I found the last episode kinda sad, the series had a lot more to tell and because of dwindling viewing figures it got cancelled.

    I did really enjoy the film David Lynch made but I get why so many people were angry that it didn't answer any questions left by the last episode and certain key characters were completely cut out. It also doesn't work as a stand alone movie, despite being a prequel but it is highly enjoyable. Loved the added violence/sex, made it that much more terrifying.

    I'll add my +1 for the first season. If you like David Lynch's style, it's a really good show.
    After that the show suffered from trying to capture lighting in a jar all over again. Once the original mystery was solved-- who killed Laura Palmer--the show lost steam.
    Also, I love the theme song.

    As a Vancouverite, may I also add that I love that this show boosted the cool factor of the wet and gloomy Pacific Northwest.

    Not like the X-Files though. Granted it rarely said it was in the Northwest, it was widely known to be filmed there.
