    Thank you for that, I probably should have waited until it finished before reading it but never mind, it's not the sort of thing where the ending as such is massively important. It's a while since I read Howard's End but I actually saw an adaptation of An Inspector Calls a couple of months ago so it's fairly fresh in my mind. I do recall that Leonard Bast was the worst written character in HE though, probably Forster had less experience of people like him.

    Bored to tears with twin peaks 3 (episode 12) so shifted to 'the name of the rose'. Hooked. Might read the book again. Already read it twice.

    Similar vibe to dissensus. Who is adso? Who is the inquisitor?

    Yeah I didn't get all the TP3 hype either. It's a slog to say the least. Felt like a perfect example of that old theory where people assume something is good if it's complicated and they can't understand it.
    Took a rest stop that wasn't on the schedule

    Obviously it's frustrating and boring and stupid, objectively it is all those things but

    A lot of it stays with you meaning at some level it works. Or part of it works. Some of it really burrows down.

    Agreed. The slowness and frustrating...ness of it are exactly the point. And it is extremely disturbing.

    My appreciation for it has increased since I watched that video about it that I posted a page or two ago.

    tl,dr; Twin Peaks in its entirety, but especially the film and the last series, is essentially an elaborate meta-commentary on the nature of TV in general, TV's effect on society and vice-versa, and the show itself and its relationship to us, the audience.

    Is it actually four and a half hours long? Daunting.

    That feels different to watching a 4-hour YouTube vid though. I dunno why, but it does.

    One is prestige television with a multi million dollar budget and a stellar cast of acclaimed character actors. The long awaited conclusion to one of the most loved shows of all time from one of Americas greatest and most enigmatic directors.

    The other is some nerd sitting in front of a webcam.
