Instead, Lynch has spent the past several years on a series of bizarre art projects, some seemingly deeply personal, some totally inexplicable.

With a few notable exceptions (his stark, disorienting turn as a late-night TV guru on Louie springs to mind), these projects — though many are Lynchian to their core — haven’t been very good. Let’s look at them now.
The Cleveland Show

From 2010 to 2013, Lynch lent his dry vocal stylings to the role of Gus, the erstwhile bartender who lingered around the edges of this bleakly unfunny Family Guy spin-off. It’s not hard to see what drew Lynch to the part — like so much of his oeuvre, Gus was a weird, anachronistic juxtaposition of the macabre and the small-town idyll (this is giving Seth MacFarlane and company entirely too much credit, but just go along with it). He wore a vest and looked exactly like David Lynch, but he slung beer and palled around with 14-year-olds. He could unzip his skin and claimed to be 117 years old, and he was also the most boring character on a show full of truly dull cartoon men. His presence, however, didn’t manage to make The Cleveland Show watchable.
