	On the other hand it often takes awhile to "work the bugs out"
	in a new show & develop the sort of synergy that pulls it
	together into something better.  A couple examples of shows
	that (in my opinion) improved a fair bit with seasoning are
	MASH and Star Trek TNG.

	If Twin Peaks' 1st season is accepted well enough, it could provide
	a foot in the door for a higher standard in network TV.  My main
	fear is that ABC could drop it if the couch potatos who vegetate
	on mindless mundane shows tune out.
