Game of Thrones and Twin Peaks have made “curious schedule-mates” this summer

  • The HBO and Showtime dramas are, says James Poniewozik, “dual examples of the ambitions of cable TV today and of the wildly different directions those ambitions can take: big-ticket spectacle vs. art-house dreamscape, geopolitical battles vs. spirit warfare, dragons vs. demons.” He adds: “But their biggest difference is the tempo. Twin Peaks is as narcotically slow as Game of Thrones has become hellbent and relentless. Watching one after the other is like stepping off a drifting log onto a speedboat.”
