Critic Reviews for Pilot Part 2

I didn't sign up for this. Okay, I totally did but not for this. Just when I try to go and make a note of something that happened on Twin Peaks, some other surreal dreamscape/missing-appendage-ghost/blood-curdling scream distracts me.

A show that is trying too hard to be weird for the sake of being weird.

Also, Leo is easily the most terrifying character I've seen on a major network TV show. I don't believe he killed Laura Palmer, but I doubt whoever DID will terrify me as much as the sight of Leo with a soap-filled sock.

With only two episodes behind it, Twin Peaks was firmly established, if on uncertain ground, and for the moment at least, no one in the country could look away.

This is the episode where everything that makes Twin Peaks really Twin Peaks come together.

May 17, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Though it is best known for the way it ends, this defining episode of Twin Peaks is packed with many wonderments.

The series never really topped what it does here.
