    Never had any connection to TRON, for some reason, but I currently have the same dilemma while watching my recently acquired Gold Box of TWIN PEAKS. I was nervous that my nostalgic relationship to it would be killed when I now watche the whole thing again as a weary adult. So far, however, it's been able to stand the test of time perfectly well, which attests to its status as the best TV show ever made.


    No way, best TV show ever made is E.R.

    Twin Peaks just gets too weird after a while, just like Lost.


    The weirder, the better. Especially when it's very "arty-fartsy", as Timmer would say, which I love! smile

    I'm more into the series because of the mood, though (it once inspired me to write a short novel). IMO, nothing comes close to the quality of this series. There's TWIN PEAKS...and then there's everything else.

    Hey, how did we get from Daft Punk to TWIN PEAKS?
    I am extremely serious.

    You're kidding , right ?!


    Because I'm watching the 8th season now and it's still just as strong as it's ever been. The hyper-realistic portrayal of the medical profession is stunning, the characters are flesh and blood (literally too), and every season there is at least one event that grips me by the throat, some seasons even have several. This is no stupid mindless soap-opera, it's top-notch quality drama.

    Don't get me wrong there are other great show out there but this one just oozes professionalism out of every pore, and has maintained that high level for many years. How many TV shows can claim that?

    Sorry for the off-topic, but it gave me the opportunity to say it. And me and my brother can argue about it all you want very soon. cheesy

    So how about that electronic duo huh? What film they should do next? My vote is for Spielberg's Tintin, if Williams already overbooked schedule should coincide with that film.

    I'm wondering if the 5 additional tracks on the EU limited edition would be worth the purchase. If they'd be so good, why wouldn't they be on the score in the first place? I'm really intrigued by the samples I hear, so considering the purchase...

  3. Babylon 5 is an interesting choice indeed. In this household Babylon 5 would all into a Top 5 TV show every other week; when the episode followed the long-term story ark. The other episodes were just filler.

    It's certainly among the best sci fi shows ever made, which is curious - since I usually dislike "pointy ear" sci fi (I can't stand STAR TREK, for example). My guess is that it has something to do with the political/philosophical/religious backdrop and scope, which in a way was also made STAR WARS so good. The opera thing. It's really a a space opera TV series.
    I am extremely serious.
  4. Guys, maybe we should open a new topic, best (genre) series, you know? smile

    Daft n' Punked shouldn't be too happy about this...

    Babylon 5? Brilliant!

    I never saw enough of The West Wing to make any kind of worthy opinion.

    They're releasing a West Wing album?
    WICKED!

    I do like the two Babylon 5 compilation albums.
    Not too keen on the full episode soundtrack CDs. Nice gimmick. Quite unlistenable.

    I absolutely agree. The West Wing is on the top of my list as best TV series ever, well a shared first place with Battlestar Galactica (as that had kickass music to boot, while the West Wing music never really did anything to me).

    But series-wise: The West Wing is superb. punk

    My oldest and best mate has the whole series of West Wing which I'll borrow at some point, he says it's not as good as The Sopranos or The Wire but that it's certainly worth a watch.

    He also has all the Galactica stuff..........where'll I find the time? dizzy

    WEST WING? Is that the show where Martin Sheen constantly keeps looking out of the window (as seen from the back), pondering on some serious issue?

    I've not seen a single episode, but I've seen a couple of scenes where they keep doing that...or cluttered groups of busy people hurrying through corridors while talking on top of each other.

    I most certainly do not. Never really been my type of show. Just funny to see how my brief glimpses is apparently not at all representative of how it is - if going by this unilateral praise.

    Well, yes he does that from time to time, but it definitely not representative for the whole series.

    Basically it boils down to this: Aaron Sorkin wrote the first 4 seasons (all of which won Best drama series Emmies). These are superb. Poignant, funny, realistic (sometimes) and always entertaining. It never is black and white, there are no real good guys and bad guys.

    Give it a 4 or 5 episodes to grow on you, and decide then. But definitely give it a go.
