Unquestionably my favorite film/television related piece of media of the 2010s, David Lynch's grand return to the small town of fine coffee and the best cherry pie in the world is nothing short of an artistic triumph and a sensation! An astonishing boxed set with all the episodes and plentiful making-of extras, this is the very best home video release of the year!
There will never be a television show quite like it. The way it combines qwerky cheesy humor with genuinely frightening imagery is jaw dropping. The Return doesn’t tie up all loose ends the orginal 1990 show ended with, and in fact it creates some new ones. But everything from the hilarious and frightening violence and imagery to the multiple story lines that come together in the end is executed perfectly. Also it has probably the best nuclear explosion scenes I’ve ever seen.
Love this season. My husband and I were happy to get it so quickly after ordering it.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
A masterpiece in television
After over 20 years, the classic Twin Peaks series returns but be warned: this isn’t what you might remember from the old series. It lacks the camp and goofball tone of the original. It is dark, bizarre and complex. It’s pure Lynch, untethered from the limits of network tv. It’s also superbly directed, written, and acted. Episode 8 is one of the best episodes of television to ever grace the small screen.
Twin Peaks changed the game in the early 90's, and it's done it again. Reminding folks just what the so called "peak era" TV can mean. If you're hoping for just a nostalgia rush and reminders of why you loved the original show - ala so many reboots and retreads of recent years - well you'll probably be disappointed. This is David Lynch's vision on heroin, and it's a real rush despite being occasionally self indulgent.
The blu-ray looks and sounds PHENOMENAL. I was so disappointed with how much compression noise and how muddy the audio was thru the Showtime stream, that's not a problem here. Crystal clear, beautiful images, and a 96khz/24 bit 5.1 audio mix (Lynch himself was the sound designer, as he often is) and it has so much fidelity and depth. The bonus material? Outstanding! Hours of footage that just lets you watch Lynch and his cast/crew do their thing, so much fun.
