I only wish you had the opportunity to see the pilot with zero expectations, and no knowledge of television that happened in its wake.

It holds up quality-wise, but I don't know that its revolutionary nature can ever be recreated.

However, I am also kind of curious how it would be judged by someone who can watch it AS a precursor of what's to come, kind of like people today who independently come to appreciate the genius of Citizen Kane given ITS time and place.

That said, I don't want to over-hype it. The best advice I can give is sit down and watch the pilot trying your best to be a late 80s network TV viewer vaguely aware of David Lynch and not much else.

BTW. Did you also meet?
