Twin Peaks (2017) – The Hype is coming (to an end?)

Attention people, perhaps the best thing ever is coming to your tv tomorrow! I’m just kidding. Following the hype around Twin Peaks is interesting.

Starting with a confession, I’ve never seen an episode of Twin Peaks. I vaguely remember it being shown on tv somewhere in the 90’s. It was positive received back then and people still wrote very positive reviews in the mid ’00s.

If I’m not mistaken the series will premier today on the Showtime network. IMDB rating before the show has aired on public tv is: 9,9/10 (395 votes), popularity is sky-high, media attention is high.

Or this is the best show ever and critics and film industry people thought it was perfect or this is getting blown up in a way I’ve not seen many times before.

The Cast

This is cool, an homage to the original cast. See for yourself.

About the series

Directed entirely by David Lynch, the new SHOWTIME 18-part limited event series picks up 25 years after the inhabitants of a quaint northwestern town were stunned when their homecoming queen Laura Palmer was shockingly murdered. TWIN PEAKS is written and executive produced by series creators David Lynch and Mark Frost, and is executive produced by Sabrina S. Sutherland.


I’ve decided to watch at least the beginning of the show without seeing to previous two seasons. Let’s see what it will bring.

Catch-up on the first two seasons of TWIN PEAKS in 2:30 minutes.
