Twin Peaks and David Lynch are taking a bashing in the media.
Most of it seems to center around the fact that we haven't
had the whole Laura thang wrapped up (pun intended) by now.
The _New York Times_ had a fairly nasty piece revolving
around just this question. Personally, I don't care a whole
lot anymore about who killed Laura Palmer. At least, that's
not my main reason for watching TP.
However, if this were happening in real life, the whole
season+2 episodes of TP would have taken place over only 9
days. Are all real life murder investigations completed in
a week? No way. Is the problem that most tv murders are
solved within an hour (less with commercials)?
Also, Lynch has been raked over the coals in various manners
for "Wild at Heart." Now, I admit that it wasn't as good as
"Blue Velvet", but it was definitely the best movie I've seen
all year. I'm no Lynch sycophant, but I think that perhaps
his recent success has really aggravated some of the people
who liked his work before he was fashionable.
