Is anybody else having this type of problem with LJ?
I log in, read my f-list or post or whatever, and when I come back, I have to log in again. I have my settings at "remember me." Is it LJ or my browser (Firefox)? It's quite annoying.

Has anybody watched Twin Peaks? Did anybody like it or not?

Not having that particular LJ problem at the moment.

Adored Twin Peaks with a Lost-like intensity back when it first aired. The first 18 or so episodes (or to the point where the "Who killed Laura Palmer?" mystery is solved) are sublimely twisted, blackly funny, and disturbing. The pilot episode, in particular, is a real masterpiece of quirky, creeping dread. Kyle MacLachlan's performance as the FBI agent investigating the murder is brilliant.

After the mystery that propels the story runs its course, however, the show loses its way and sputters to a deeply unsatisfying final episode as a pale shadow of itself.

My recommendation is to definitely watch until the mystery is solved, particularly if you enjoy David Lynch's work. After that, let it go and move on.

Oh man, this makes me want to watch it all over again!

I haven't been having that problem, but i'm using Safari.

I recently watched the first four episodes of Twin Peaks. It was...interesting, and there were some really brilliant moments, but all in all it just wasn't for me. I can certainly see why a lot of Lost-fans like it, but i'm just really not a David Lynch person. That being said, i know plenty of people whose opinions i respect who adore the show. So, my advice is to at least give the pilot and the first two or three episodes a shot, and see what you think. It could very well be your kind of show.

Regarding LJ: I use the LJLogin extension in Firefox and haven't noticed the problem, but I also haven't been on LJ at all the past few days, so if it's a recent problem my anecdata may be worthless.

Regarding Twin Peaks: Yes and YES! I love that show to pieces.

LOVED Twin Peaks back in the day. I agree with the comment that it went a bit off the boil after the initial mystery was solved. Miguel Ferrar joins the cast several episodes in as an FBI forensics expert and he is absolutely classic. One scene between him and Michael Ontkean (Sheriff Harry Truman) stands out as one of my top 5 favorite tv scenes of all time. And as a bonus, it has a fantastic soundtrack. definitely worth a watch!!
