David Lynch and Mark Frost's "Twin Peaks," which only ran for 2 seasons in the early 90s, is the strangest show to ever be on network television, as well as on of the most influential. The current landscape of complex, ambitious, novelistic, auteur driven television owes a huge debt to the series. So it was with great anticipation (and a little trepidation) that I sat down to watch the new series. If the original was a murder mystery with an air of surrealism and some weird edges, this one foregrounds the weirdness and might be the most bizarre TV show since the original. It's best to go in not knowing too much, but the show, for the most part, lovingly references the original while blazing some new, unsettling, and mindblowing paths. Much of the original cast, headed up by Kyle McLachlan, returns and the supporting cast is full of veterans from most of Lynch's movies, including Naomi Watts, Robert Forester, and, in one of his final roles, Harry Dean Stanton. There are also a lot of awesome musical guests. It has to be seen to be believed.

To start with- I think this series is a masterpiece. Second- The new series will not be for everybody. While the characters and stories are present from the original run, this is as jarringly different from the original series as you'd expect given the passage of time and expected growth of both the fictional characters and the people making the show. It very much reflects David Lynch's evolution as a filmmaker and the evolution of Lynch/Frost as collaborators. This is not a traditionally episodic or serialized series, with it having been shot as one big movie, then broken down into individual episodes. Additionally, the storytelling isn't completely linear. Some storylines aren't resolved, many answers aren't given, but, much as with the original series, this is reflective of real life, something that can sometimes prove frustrating in entertainment.
At times, the show races, at others it moves at a slower pace. Some characters are grounded, others seem over the top. Some events hit far too close to home, others are so far out as to defy explanation. Ultimately, it's a show that dares to defy the conventions of traditional narrative television and challenges the viewer, not only to be patient, but to be willing to apply their own interpretations to events that aren't often spelled out in great detail. As said before, it is ultimately a polarizing show. But if you find it for you, you'll find it to be greatly rewarding.

This series will appeal to people who have watched and enjoyed the original Twin Peaks series. It's fascinating to see most of the original cast revive their roles (25 years later). All the episodes are co-written and directed by Lynch - who provides his usual mixture of mystery, comedy, and horror.

The mystery of "Twin Peaks" deepens. And while it would have been the easiest thing in the world to just reprise the previous two seasons from 25+ years ago, the third season takes us in (many) unexpected directions. Familiar favorites return, but there is barely a whiff of nostalgia here, which makes the series feel all the more like these characters have been out there living their lives since last we saw them. Meanwhile, a huge new cast spread is brought in to the picture.

Kyle MacLachlan deserves an Emmy for his performance as Dale Cooper (and "Mr. C" and Dougie) and David Lynch deserves all sorts of awards for making something so strange feel so familiar, yet intense and emotional. Bonus points for the musical performances that end most episodes and give the viewer time to reflect and surface back to the real world, while also capturing the feel of the story and sometimes even advancing it.

A slow-burning story, unusual in its stortytelling, yet very fascinating if you can wait it out and adjust your expectations. It's generally recommended to stop watching after they solve the case of Laura Palmer's murder, then pick it up again for the last two episodes. The in-between episodes are produced by people other than Frost and Lynch, and aren't worth watching.

Then check out the new Twin Peaks series (2017) - filmed and set 25 years later!

Twin Peaks is an epic milestone for television. The passionate fans of the series even hold an annual event in North Bend to commemorate the series. Certain people even have a decal of the Owl Cave symbol on their vehicle (spoiler alert: it's me.) Some of the cast (okay, A LOT of the cast) had passed away in the 25 years since the original series, I was worried that the absence of some of my favorite characters (Pete!) would feel like there was something missing., but with the majority of the cast returning, and the addition of several new weirdos, I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed everything The Return presented. (Although I am still heartbroken the Bowie couldn't revise his role of Phillip Jeffries.) This is absolutely not a series that will appeal to the average viewer, those who are familiar with David Lynch and his body (or disembodied, as the series shows) of work will not be left unfulfilled. While there might not be a fish in the percolator, the owls, still, are not what they seem.

If you want to watch a weird TV show, look no further.

Seminal TV series by David Lynch and Mark Frost- the series concerns the murder of the high school prom queen, but is really about the secrets and machinations of a small town community.

Dale Cooper: "What does Bob want?"

The One-Armed Man: "He is Bob, eager for fun. He wears a smile. Everybody run!"

Dale Cooper: "Diane... 10:00 a.m. at the Great Northern. I've just been in a hotel room with the One-armed Man... or what's left of him. In another time, another culture, this man would have been a seer, a shaman priest... possibly a leader. In our world, he's a shoe peddler, and lives in the shadows."
