    Museum Secrets. The series is a bit hit and miss but this episode, dealing with the Hermitage, was fascinating.

    It's been a long long time since I saw Twin Peaks. It was a great show.

    Gee, it has been a while since I saw that show.
    People think they are so rebellious and original, when really they are just banal, boring and dumb.

    Call the midwife on BBC1 last night followed by Upstairs Downstairs(series2) both give a good feel of 1930's to 1950's Britain.

    You know the best thing? It still totally holds up. There's nothing dated looking about it - maybe because for the most part they dressed all the characters in that very 50s-inspired look that was so big in the Eighties (filming was done in 1989). That and in the sort of backwater communities it represents, people really hadn't changed much in their dress since the Fifties, or so the impression I have suggests. I reached the end yesterday evening.... that final scene.... in 1991, late at night on a slightly fuzzy black and white portable in my teenage bedroom, it gave me the shivers. It still has it now. In a couple of years' time, I think I will be doing it all over again.
    If in doubt - overdress.

    What was your take on Lynch's The Lost Highway? I seem to remember being confused, but don't remember feeling that way with Twin Peaks. Maybe today would be a good day to watch it seeing as how I have Washington's Birthday off.

    I've not actually seen that one - must keep an eye out for it on the television. To be honest, I'm not a big Lynch fan - like Kubrick, I find him very hit and miss. I don't mind things being obscure or open to interpretation or whatever (often I prefer it, actually), but Lynch often strikes me as being obtuse for its own sake, which I find tedious and pretentious.

    Exactly how I felt with The Lost Highway. Even with a serious suspension of disbelief, it just did not work. I wanted to like it as I had found Twin Peaks to be so entertaining, but it was a serious disappointment.
