Thank you for the history lesson, however it is unnecessary. I was there at the time, and fully recall who was involved in the show.
It might be worth your while re-reading my post(s), as I very clearly stated that these were my opinions.

I don't recall saying that it was!?

Great! However, the reason I wasn't suprised by the differing tones is that I have learnt never to be too surprised by David's work. Expect the unexpected.

Gabriel wrote:...but to dismiss fully-sanctioned works by the children of the show's creators (one of whom was a TP series writer) that are part of the continuity is bizarre for someone who claims to be so into Lynch's stuff!
OK, firstly I don't recall dismissing anything. I merely stated that it wasn't my cup of tea.
Secondly, I don't "claim to be so into Lynch's stuff", I am into it thank you. However, I'm not particularly comfortable with having to justify my level of fandom to anyone! It's not a competition, and I'm very comfortable with my appreciation of the man's work.
The last time I looked this thread was entitled: "A Twin Peaks Continuation ' For Or Against". I clearly made a schoolboy error in trying to explain my personal reasons for being against... Debate is good, but when it's taken this seriously my interest dies.
Gabriel, you most likely didn't mean to offend, but your tone was rather patronising, and I think it's worth remembering that we are discussing a TV show here. All opinions are welcome to me, but not when they are rammed down my throat.
Have a good day.
