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.
I agree. They had some mistakes during the second half of season two, quite a number, but they got back on form before the end and had a spectacular finale. Possibly the best episode of the show. I would've loved to see where it went from there.

I've got all the 13 made eps and I REALLY would like to see a sort of reboot of this series, also because the music is absolutely awesome, Tangerine Dream made the soundtrack...

Oh and Andrew Probert designed the bike.

You mean there is a show called Lost that still comes on. I know there was one on that had a really great season but it ended after one.
Too bad you're missing the best show on TV.

And maybe Twin Peaks needs to be mentioned in the Remake This thread. Or any TV series by David Lynch. I'd be willing to give the guy another shot at it.

Not 'brilliant' by any means, but I still enjoyed the heck out of it:

Otherworld.

Gotta love it for the theme music alone!

And with some minor revisions, it could make a great Stargate episode or two.
