    That is true. I really enjoy how ridiculous the original series was. So colorful and ...gay.

    True but I like the idea of it being good. Not that I'd sit and watch it.

    Yes they where both outstanding. But as an actress, she was exploited horribly. The gratuitous topless scenes was uncomfortanle to say the least, and unbecomming of the magnificent series. Where was Sheriff Truman, Hawk and Andy. The Hornes, Haywards and Martells. And your very own Jacoby. They WHERE Twin Peaks. And how blasse where they over the fact that Bobby killed a deputy. It just wasnt Twin Peaks for me. And the less said about series 2 and 3 the better, but season 1 will live with me forever.

    A year or two back whilst out with some of my missus' friends, they asked what we'd thought of the brilliant film they'd suggested to us to watch as a romantic modern classic.

    I stated that The Shape of Water was the biggest pile of crap I'd ever seen, and I didn't like the theme of bestiality running throughout. Biggest pile of crap, except for La La Land.

    I would have for the same reaction if I'd have pulled down my keks and defecated in the middle of the table.

    Has a Nicolas Cage film ever been acclaimed?

    Raising Arizona and Wild at Heart are excellent.
