I agree that Firewalk With Me isn't very good and there's a lot of gratuitous garbage in it. I think the television series has a lot of redeeming qualities however. Quirky characters, stylish noir atmosphere and so forth. The soundtrack alone still gives me goosebumps.

Been posted to the Enterprise would it seem be a good moment to start checking whether your will is accurately written and making up notes to be sent to loved ones in case you die on active service. Scotty is of course protected by plot armour and makes it through the series alive even though he has a red shirt.

Being posted to the Enterprise makes it hard to buy an insurance policy.

I think I owned a cassette of it as well at one time.

You have to wonder what happens to characters that are un-personed/retconned out of a show. Did characters like Chuck Cunningham and Ruth Ann Torkelson get to live on while the Prime universe went on without them.


I loved the Torkelsons. Wanted to be Mary Sue, not Dorothy Jane, though

'Fire Walk with Me' is Lynch at his most self-indulgent, which could easily ruin the upcoming sequel as well (although co-creator Mark Frost is involved in the sequel so perhaps he can reign in Lynch's worst tendencies).

Yeah, there are some people who are great creators but who require shall we say a strong editorial team to rein them in. I can think of a fair few people from various genres who fall into that category, who work best and produce their best stuff when someone is stopping them rambling or falling into self-indulgence.

David should have stayed in Pleasantville where he had a teenage cheerleader for a girlfriend which i doubt he has in the real world given his geekiness and love of ancient tv shows.
