David Lynch on America in Primetime

David Lynch on the experience of watching television when it’s first broadcast.

There’s something about a shared experience. You used to know that millions of other people were watching the same thing and there’s something, something kind of cosmic about that… You feel a deeper thing. And you know that deeper thing.

The quote comes courtesy of a series on American television originally broadcast on PBS. The series has a very impressive selection of contributors and I can highly recommend checking it out. You can watch the complete series embedded below. The videos are restricted to U.S. visitors so you need to view them from there or at least seem like you’re viewing them from there.
