Part 1

EPISODE:

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: "Part One" suggests Twin Peaks hasn't left any of its singularly unsettling power during the show's long layoff -- and proves this is one series revival not motivated by empty nostalgia.

Critic Reviews for Part 1

We have returned to Twin Peaks at last, and it is a weirder place than ever. Thank god.

My overall verdict is that Lynch has blown the roof off the universe, as the compliment goes, but - and it's a reasonably big caveat - it is off-the-charts surreal and not one for the fidgets, as a colleague used to say.

Sunday's return of Twin Peaks was everything fans might have expected: as confounding, horrifying, and furtive as its co-creator David Lynch's (relatively) recent work, but not entirely lacking in the homespun charm of the original network-TV series.

We sat and watched a box on which people sat and watched a box. They didn't know what it was they were watching for, only that it made them uneasy. Us too, kids. Welcome to Lynchville.

Woof! Okay, so outside of Twin Peaks, we've got two or three other plot to get through, but it won't take too long, because they are already David Lynch movie tropes.

Was it subtle to have a scene where two people sit on a couch to watch a glass box which eventually devours their faces? Not remotely, but f--- subtlety.

Impatience, boredom, irritation, agitation (all very grounding human emotions) segue into a more transcendental state of mind.

Twin Peaks is back! And it's not going to be for everyone, that's for sure. But the challenging, fascinating two-hour premiere found David Lynch and Mark Frost once more telling a story on their terms.

As wtf inscrutable as ever... deeply absorbing stuff.

May 22, 2017 | Rating: A | Full Review…

The director frequently seems to just let the camera roll and wait for something to happen... But pulling that kind of trick off requires patience, and it's certainly a far cry from the whirlwind soap-operatic structure of the original seasons.
