Recensieoverzicht: Critics doubt whether Twin Peaks expectations can achieve

After almost 26 years, Twin Peaks Sunday, may 21, is back on tv. The opinions of the reviewers about the long-awaited two-hour premiére are divided.

The Hollywood Reporter gives no stars

“What is immediately striking is that the first two episodes fairly convincing, with the emphasis on reasonable. It is an accessible way is just as scary, crazy and funny as the best parts from the original series. It is difficult to say whether the series is good or bad, because there are so many episodes and because the show us in the past has learned to be careful with opinions. The question that now remains is or Twin Peaks so far is correct. And for the most part that is true.”

The Guardian gives no stars

“If you like the series don’t know well, you will be in utter confusion left behind. But be comforted, at the end of the first two episodes will be also seasoned viewers of the surprise of their seat. There is a lot that die-hard Twin Peaks fans happy will love and viewers of visual tricks to keep will also be sure to keep them happy, but the people who are already not so enthusiastic, will the separate narrative style of director David Lynch not long endure.”

NRC – two stars

“The problem is that the almost idolized director does like the tv revolution has never taken place. (…) There is no plot, only a series of surreal, disjointed, old-fashioned-looking scenes. (…) There is missing a storyline, while brutal violence prevail. (…) And not one of the characters evokes compassion or more than superficial recognition. In 2017, we expect more than Lynch seems to think. Like a story, strong characters, or even all of the two.”

CNN – give no stars

“It is useful to have as a homework assignment, the original series and the movie Fire walk with me to watch, but it is not clear whether that is actually going to help.(…) The series feels a bit like an outdated band again on tour, but for an old audience. The makers felt an obligation to the well-known characters to bring back, but trying to force new characters to add. (…) It is too soon to judge whether or not the series a return is worth, but the series will, in any case, the curiosity of the fans generate.

The Morning – four stars

“Instead of an easy return to familiar territory this is the third season of Twin Peaks is a kaleidoscope of various stories and settings (…) The new Twin Peaks doesn’t belong to the best of what’s out there today on tv. But these two episodes out of an eighteen episodes long series show the same courage as that legendary pilot that Twin Peaks in 1989 the shock wave caused in the medium.”

The New York Times – give no stars

“It seems as if the nostalgic version from 1990 is interspersed with more cold and harsh scenes from 2017. Whether and how the two come together should determine whether this work, his popularity remains intact. (…) But there are plenty of signs that the series at least a couple of months to beautiful zondagavonden will lead. The original series turned on two questions: Who was Laura Palmer killed? And where am I in hell watching? The first is less there, but the series knows, still there to ensure that you the second question to yourself continues.”
