Today marks the one-year anniversary of when Showtime released the first batch of new Twin Peaks episodes, which was 26 years after ABC’s cancellation of the original series left Dale Cooper stranded in the Black Lodge. Leading up to the premiere, I thought a lot about what I wanted from the revived show, and I thought David Lynch should do something unexpected and weirdly different. I got those in spades.
I’m still confused as to what actually happened, but I loved the ride. This Esquire article sums up my lingering thoughts on the revival well.
Also, there should be no Season 4. We’re lucky enough to have gotten 18 more hours. Let Laura be. She’s been through enough.
