This is the 2017 Showtime 'season' which is labeled "Limited Series" instead of 'Season 3'. This is included in larger box-set called "The Television Collection". I've been a fan, forgot most of the details of the 25-years-plus original 2 seasons. Good to see so many familiar and now aged faces.

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.

Chance the gardener versus the Irish terminator and his evil hobo minions. It's okay until Dale Cooper regains his senses and becomes the super earnest 1950's hero melodramatically fighting for the soul of Laura Palmer. Dare I say is she worth it agent Cooper? Didn't bother with the last episode though the bulk of it had me hooked. I think what I liked best about the original twin peaks were the color saturated sets and Lynch pays homage to that here.

Lots of filler but still an addictive treat. Lynch seems to know a good still shot that can last for minutes and still keep you watching. Definitely fun to see alot of the old cast though they were a mixed bag as well. I just hope he doesn't really have a thing against hobos or homeless people.

Fantastic start to a great show. Season 2 is stronger in my opinion. Twin Peaks is a surreal detective show with supernatural elements.

"Now you listen to me. While I will admit to a certain cynicism, the fact is that I am a naysayer and hatchetman in the fight against violence. I pride myself in taking a punch and I'll gladly take another because I choose to live my life in the company of Gandhi and King." --Albert Rosenfeld (Season 2, Episode 3)

Binging the third season really messes with your brain and sense of reality, and makes the real world (the one you're living in) seem unreal and strange. If you resist its logic, you'll be sorely disappointed and frustrated, but if you surrender to it, you're in for an experience that is unlike any other you'll have with TV or even films. David Lynch is famous for favoring intuition over reason, and here, he's working at the peak of his creativity, while at the same time, offering up a retrospective of a lifetime of dreaming on celluloid. By adding actors from his stable, such as Laura Dern and Naomi Watts to the expansive original cast, Lynch unites the past with the present and then creates a work that defies linear time. The ending is unsettling and completely unexpected, even though we're told upfront to expect some aspects of it. I'm still haunted by it. When the third season was announced, I was worried that what we'd get is a greatest hits or walk down memory lane-type sequel. I should've known better.

Masterpiece television. I couldn't wait for the next episode to arrive. I don't know the last time I loved television this much. I've watched the whole 18 episodes again, and it was even better the second time around.

Mere words can not express how bad this sequel series is.
.
Half of me thinks that David Lynch may be one of the greatest artistic con men of all time (alongside Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol) who has been able to convince the pretentious and fringe-of-society types that his works contain a deeper meaning; the other half more simply thinks that he is, hands down, the worst writer/director of all time.
.
Most of the cast is filled out with actors that are so bad that you will never, ever see them in any other films. The remaining, well-known actors must have been directed, at Lynch's behest, to act as poorly as the first group.
.
Timing is off; long awkward pauses; scenes that go on for seconds to minutes past when they should have ended; loads of filler material; loads of unfunny dialog and situations; loads of characters who seem to be either high or retarded; weirdness for the sake of weirdness; terrible dream sequences and special effects; the need to bring back every single character from the original show (save for those who turned it down or mercifully died); and, of course, the completely idiotic backwards talking with subtitles. It's all enough to make a sane person scream.
.
TOTAL RUBBISH from the very first second of the first episode to the very final second of the final episode.

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."
