You have no idea how excited I am that I can stream Showtime via my Hulu app on my Apple TV. Even MORE, I came home just in time to watch Twin Peaks: The Return. ALL FOUR PARTS.
May 21, 2017 was the official come back date of the show that you watched (if you are as old as I am) when you were younger. This was the, “My eyes are glued to the TV, I hope they find the person who did it,” show. The one you watched RELIGIOUSLY every week. Yes, I did.
Will you be confused? Yes. However, the whole series was confusing anyway, right? Actually, The Return is a little easier to follow. You have to, HAVE TO, watch it from Part 1. For Real. Don’t jump into Part 3 thinking you can catch on, because you won’t. You would have missed so much.
Part 1 opens with the most confusing event ever that has to do with Ruth Davenport. Then there is a naughty Tracy, and then you get to see a cameo 🙂 All in due time, of course. Where is Agent Cooper? That is the real question. Who is the long haired guy with Daria and Ray? Wait, who is Daria and Ray?
I had so many questions while I was watching, then realized, I was the only one watching. Oh, Well. There was a lot of “what” happening during the four parts I watched last night.
When I watched Part 4 last night, I am freaking out over here. The ending of Part 4 has me so twisted and maybe a little confused. Okay, one thing you have to keep up. There is a ton of moving around, but it’s because everything is linked. I’m still trying to figure out what the principal’s secretary has to do with coordinates to where or to whom. I don’t know why she is important, but I need to know!
So many questions, right? I know. The three locations that are currently involved: Twin Peaks, South Dakota, WA DC (for the FBI Headquarters), New York, and Las Vegas.
What to do? Watch the 90s version of the show (I forgot to), so that the cinematics are not foreign to you when you start watching this show (but you need to – HURRY and watch it- It’s on Showtime too).
Then, just follow along. Don’t get lost in the translation of everything. I am stoked, and so eager to watch Part 5 on Sunday night!
