Critic Reviews for Twin Peaks The Return

All Critics (91) | Top Critics (34)

This revival is fascinating, delirious and definitively, unmistakably Lynchian, but somewhere in the intervening years the state of mind that defined the original has been lost.

May 22, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The return of Twin Peaks would bewilder anyone unfamiliar with the show. But the visuals were still arresting.

May 22, 2017 | Full Review…

Beyond the cast, the show was beautifully shot by Peter Deming, and Angelo Badalamenti's score is as iconic as ever. The pieces of this puzzle inspire rapture. But when you try to assemble them, what kind of picture do you create?

May 22, 2017 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Twin Peaks defies ultimate analysis, and ultimate judgment. That's its secret and mystique, and why it's back after 25 years, as a reminder that TV -- like art -- doesn't have to be reduced to nuts and bolts, or to specific meaning either.

Top Critic

For fans who have loved the show's surreal, subversive spirit, Lynch has supercharged every element that made the original series a TV classic.

What a good show this is. Who cares who killed who?

Top Critic

An anxiety consumes you as you watch The Return, a wildness of connections-like some radio telescope scanning the universe for signals.

Mar 6, 2019 | Full Review…

More intellectually and emotionally stimulating than anything I've seen in a long time.

Feb 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Twin Peaks: The Return was ghastly, comic, romantic, mysterious, and unlike anything ever to come before it. It was some damn fine coffee.

Oct 30, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Twin Peaks is a peculiar kind of game, one almost intended for online channels-a game that we play in order to figure out its rules.

Audience Reviews for Twin Peaks: The Return

David Lynch takes a giant sh**, calls it Twin Peaks: Season 3 (aka The Return), and rubs the fans faces in it. There's no real story; stuff just happens for 18-episodes and then it ends. Most of the season isn't even set in Twin Peaks, and the original cast members who return are mostly only used in glorified cameos that have no connection to any storyline. Everything fans knew and loved about the series is trashed as the show's previous mythology and character developments are completely disregarded. Artistic douchebaggery at its worst, Twin Peaks: Season 3 is utterly pointless garbage.
