Last night marked the much-anticipated return of Mark Frost and David Lynch's Twin Peaks. Since its second season ended in 1991, a lot has changed socially. Reflecting back on the show's initial run, it was painfully caucasian and employed some awfully crass stereotypes. Now that it's 2017, it makes sense that Frost and Lynch would try to be a little more socially and culturally progressive. But when I tuned in last night to catch the return, I couldn't help but be a little surprised by the blatant virtue signaling. Certainly, being woke is important. But did anybody else feel like they went a little too far? And what was with all the weird neoliberal economic shit? It felt awkward, forced, and kind of actually even more offensive than the original by how ludicrously it screamed political correctness and liberal fiscal theory every two seconds.
Anyways, I live tweeted the first episode from my personal account. If you weren't following along last night, I've taken the trouble to embed the tweets below in chronological order.
