It's hard to answer because I'm not OP. But presumably, they watch it because they enjoy it, while also thinking that some aspects of it are bad to them. I don't see what's incorrect about reacting to something like that - liking parts of it and disliking others.

And no, I'm not a huge Twin Peaks fan, I just think it's bizarre that people would scrutinize David Lynch's work using 21st century sociopolitical standards because it's inevitably going to come up short by design.

I wouldn't talk about it in terms of "scrutiny" and "coming up short". I think using that lens can help understand different aspects of the work. I don't think people who are using that lens are necessarily going to use it to dismiss the show entirely. OP certainly doesn't seem to have done so.

I didn't say it was "incorrect," and I'm not "policing" anyone.
