    I loved it. Was a fan of the show since day one –my college years– and it was thrilling seeing Lynch go completely untethered for 2 hours. It picks up in a logical place, establishes some plot and indulges in the weirdness. I liked the expansion of the universe outside of Twin Peaks a lot.

    The 3 and 4th episodes were a slight let down despite some brilliant, ERASERHEAD-y stretches, and great work by MacLachlan. I hope they can keep this pace up for 14 more episodes. If so it’ll be something to behold, especially if Lynch truly is done with feature filmmaking.

  2. Ray Pride says:

    One way of looking at it: David Lynch is releasing the equivalent of NINE feature films over the course of less than five months.

  3. Sideshow Bill says:

    Very true. The first 2 hours felt like a whole.

    Michael Cera was a stitch in episode 4. And seeing Duchovny again was great. And Robert Forster is pure class every time. I hope he takes on a bigger role. Great choice for that role.

  4. Glamourboy says:

    Was really reminded of how much Lynch brutalizes women…for not understandable reason. And women in his work often are attacked, brutalized or killed when they are wearing very little clothing. How can this possibly be acceptable to a 2017 audience?

  5. PTA Fluffer says:

    Glamourboy, does Lynch brutalize women? Or is he an artist responding to a world in which women are brutalized?

“We’re all going to die so it makes it very easy. I haven’t always thought that way but I’ve realized it’s the truth. I think age gets you there, questioning your mortality… When you realize that, it’s so liberating, it’s so free, you can fly! There’s no need to hold on to anything. Like, think of the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you; it’s probably happened to 500 million people as well. Who gives a shit!”
