Twenty things about David Lynch's latest and possibly weirdest movie, 'Fire Walk With Me' - Grantland

Stashed in: Social Media, Are You Not Entertained?, History of Tech!, Twin Peaks

Imagine seeing this happen live. Or if you can't, imagine if Lost had ended with Matthew Fox apparently possessed by the Smoke Monster. The Internet would have gone into core meltdown. People would have rioted. Or started a #TwinPeaksRiot hashtag on Twitter and never actually done anything. But this was TV in 1991. No social-networking platforms, ergo no socially networked outrage. No grassroots #SixSeasonsAndAMovie campaigns, either; no DirecTV reprieves, no IFC or Netflix to bankroll new episodes, no chance of an expanded-universe line of graphic novels starring weirdly drawn approximations of MacLachlan & Co. You kids today, with your entitlement and your recaps and your direct line to Dan Harmon's man-cave — you don't know how good you have it.

I remember being so confused and upset with how Lynch left things.

So many unexplained things, so many cliffhanger plots.

Btw the ending in LOST was not spectacular, either. That whole last season was a cheat!

Oh I agree. I dislike the last few seasons of Lost. After the writer's strike, the show should have ended.
