I pray that this does not happen since I will most likely stop watching it.
The beauty of Twin Peaks is that _all_ of the characters, the good and the bad
both, are three-dimensional and complete.  In an encapsulated format we could
not develop at all well the new people who might come along.  All reason to
watch will be gone.  Cooper and Lucy can only carry the show so far.

Personally I hope for a format more like _Wiseguy_, where the new characters are
developed over a season or so.  That will definately keep me coming back.
