S2 fell off a cliff. I wasn't sad to see it go.
It did fall off a cliff. But before it fell, it was brilliant.

What's more, it caught a branch as it fell, and had actually managed to climb back up to the edge of the cliff by the end of season 2. The season finale was brilliant--classic David Lynch.

Had it been given a third season, I think we would have seen a return to form. So it definitely belongs on any list of 'brilliant but cancelled,' and it's a shame that it took 55 posts before anybody remembered it.

But, that said--yeah. Some of those second-season episodes were just bad.
An illusion--with intelligence! A malignant vision, with a will of pure evil!
