So, even though I am hate-capping Showtime’s Twin Peaks right now, it doesn’t mean others out there are loving the reboot. In fact, so many love it that they held a Q&A panel at San Diego Comic-Con this year.

While Season 3 of Twin Peaks is classic David Lynch, with many people nostalgically poring over it, others are finding they have moved on from Lynch and are finding it hard engage with the new season. And, tellingly, this may be having an effect on the rating, with IGN revealing Twin Peaks will move from 9 p.m. ET on Sunday nights to 8 p.m. ET. This one hour time difference will go into effect from August 6.

It seems everyone is more interested in watching a little show about tits and dragons than staring at a screen while some chick scratches a rash.

According to Variety, David Lynch wasn’t physically present at the SDCC panel, however there was video message from him. And it was just as “special” as his show if the Variety rundown is anything to go by.

“It was a short, strange piece that kept cutting out and piling on the strange developments. Lynch began by saying hello, but then he started yelling at someone off-camera. At that point, it sounded like a man fell from a great height. Lynch came back and said, ‘I’ve got to show you something’ — and lifted up what looked like a dead hand. There was something in the hand: ‘This supposedly is the last golf ball O.J. Simpson hit before going into prison.’ The film cut out again and then Lynch was back: ‘Today you’re going to meet some great actresses and actors …’ Lynch began, but then, off-camera, it sounded like total chaos was breaking out. Lynch: ‘You can’t bring a horse in here. Manuel, take that gun away.’ Fans packed into Hall H heard the sound of a horse whinnying. And then the film finally abruptly cut out.”
