Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me

I do still like the Twin Peaks movie because I get to experience more of this world, but watching it again last night I was reminded why I will never like it like I do the series. The problem with the movie is that it only focuses on the dark aspects of the series. What makes Twin Peaks the TV series so enjoyable is the ¬†balance of weird/wacky/fun with a darker undertone. If you take away that first part (or at least the fun), then you’re just left with weirdness and darkness, and that’s definitely not what made me fall in love with¬†Twin Peaks, and why I’ve watched the series so many times (at least 4-5 times). But hey, like I said, I still liked watching it, and I’m about to embark on yet another viewing of the TV series, and I just can’t wait until 2016 for those new episodes.
