I never understood the hype it had/has going. Medieval stuff isn't my cup of tea on the other hand. I strongly turn my back on it every time I stumble upon "Knights and princesses" fests or any other comparable undertaking... Yuck!
And with Got there are a crazy huge lot of people going "you should watch it, I'm sure you'll get hooked" to which I usually answer "have you seen Twin Peaks?" which usually ends in "no," me going "well then I'm definitely NOT watching GoT, f**k you! It seems you didn't get my point at all."
And pardon my french, but most people's viewing habits nowadays really grind my gears.
Therefore, I'd appreciate Peaks receiving awards and a positive acclaim, but seeing how scarcely recognized it usually is amongst non-Lynch-fans, I suppose Showtime are in for an adventure.
At least it'll make us geeks happy, but I expect nothing too big when it comes to praise from the outside world.
TP and GoT are not going to compete on the same category. TP fits in the limited series slot
I'm not sure TP will be eligible as limited series.
This are the rules as of 2015 :
Definition of "Series" and "Limited Series": "Mini-Series" will be changed to "Limited Series" and defined as programs of two or more episodes with a total running time of at least 150 program minutes that tell a complete, non-recurring story, and do not have an ongoing storyline and/or main characters in subsequent seasons. "Comedy" and "Drama" Series will continue to be defined as programs with a minimum of six episodes which have an ongoing storyline, theme and main characters presented under the same title and with continuity of production supervision. Any narrative series with at least two but no more than five episodes will be considered a "Limited Series."
Producers may formally petition for review by the aforementioned industry panel to change category eligibility.
I guess it'll depend on what they'll submit it as.
