Just watched the premiere, and... this is going to be one polarizing series. A lot of folks are going to f***ing hate it with a passion. TVLine's Michael Ausiello trashed it hard.
I'm cautiously optimistic, but I have quite a few concerns, too.
I hope that, in future installments, we see more of actual Twin Peaks. But, with the list of guest stars, I'm a bit concerned that thevrest of the series will follow the pattern of 1&2.
Too many of the scenes seemed to drag on for too long (particularly the South Dakota murder stuff), and a lot of the acting from the non-regulars was stiff. Definitely late period Lynch.
I was also a bit taken aback by how sparse the soundtrack was. The original Twin Peaks had such a great score, and this just sort of felt like plain wallpaper.
I hope that, by the end, it coalesces into something coherent and provides a satisfying conclusion.
