The First Reactions To The ‘Twin Peaks’ Premiere Are In And People Seem Delightfully Puzzled


So, you may have heard that Twin Peaks is back. After some vague and creepy teasers, the cult hit returns for a limited series on Sunday evening on Showtime. Despite only running for two seasons in the very early ’90s, the enduring appeal of the eerie drama has never waned. Decades later, people are still obsessed with who killed Laura Palmer.

When auteur David Lynch revealed that he would be bringing Twin Peaks back for a limited series on Showtime, it was immediately clear that fans were ready to obsess over the surreal show once again. While many debated whether or not bringing it back was the best idea, the general consensus was that they would be watching. Now that the first episode has aired, fans have gotten yet another sip of that damn fine cup of coffee. And how did it go down? It’s safe to say that people are pleased and freaked out to be back in this strange, atmospheric world.

If you live tweet #TwinPeaks, red curtains will appear and David Lynch will step out as Gordon Cole to shout at you: “JUST WATCH THE SHOW!!”

To think, there are gonna be people tonight who watch Twin Peaks and think, “so, what, it’s like a weirder, R-rated version of Riverdale?”

David Lynch is the king of cinematic surrealism. #twinpeaks

This really is the best television I have ever seen. Intriguing, comforting and terrifying. #TwinPeaks

Judging by some of these posts, some of these people have never seen a David Lynch movie before, let alone #TwinPeaks

I think the simplest way to describe Twin Peaks would be “Waking Fever Dream”#TwinPeaks

David Lynch is still the master. This is amazing. #twinpeaks

I’m watching with the Closed Captioning on, and I’m really amused by all the [ominous whooshing] and [ominous music]. #TwinPeaks

Feeling unsettled, in a seeing Eraserhead as a teen kind of way, after watching the first new #TwinPeaks episode.

Thank you @Showtime for bringing #twinpeaks back. I haven’t been this happy in awhile. #twinpeaks #DavidLynchlover #nevernottrippy

The #twinpeaks return was a two hour crash course on why ‘Lynchian’ is an adjective.

No one does it like him.

— AJ Moser (@AndMoser) May 22, 2017

That made no sense in the best possible way. #TwinPeaks

— BlackbyrdGyrl (@BlackbyrdGyrl) May 22, 2017

That was creepy, haunting, and beautiful. What a return. #twinpeaks

Yes, you could say that people were sufficiently shaken by the two-hour season premiere. As the series continues to spin its web of weird characters and strange happenings, it seems like fans are more than willing to let David Lynch take them on a wild ride (even when they have no idea what’s going on).
