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.
