Critic Reviews for Part 3

Again I ask: how am I, or anyone, supposed to "recap" a mashup of a visual art installation on LSD meets the weirdest dream you ever had?

Well, that was a pleasant surprise. After a challenging season opener that wove a web of fear across its two-hour running time, the tone of this episode felt like a return to the Twin Peaks of old, in which light and dark were held carefully in balance.

What we're saying is that the descent into madness is real, as of Episode 3, and while we're only 22 percent through the season, it seems likely that this level of weirdness is likely to be maintained - if not escalated.

As nonsensical as that summary paragraph may sound, it's all fairly tight from a plotting and storytelling perspective, even if the imagery is surreal and the dialogue is distorted or even hidden from the viewer.

What's becoming more and more evident as the new Peaks progresses is that the series is, in large part, a repository for Lynch's subconscious, past and present.

The irregular structure of the first few episodes further lends to the magnetism of both series and filmmaker, and yet the manner in which it unfolds still requires considerable investment on behalf of the viewer as Lynch goes full in.

It was exciting to witness Coop's escape from the Lodge and to watch plot threads begin to more clearly reveal themselves.

With four hours of the The Return under our belts, it's getting a bit easier to understand its overall approach.

Just lower that skeptical eyebrow: nobody said the revival of Mark Frost and David Lynch's surreal murder mystery was going to be easy viewing. But Twin Peaks, which I thought had hit peak weirdness in the opening episodes, has got even weirder.

These two hours did much to invest us in the 18-hour journey of the new Twin Peaks.
