Review of "Twin Peaks: The Return" 5/27/17 by Suzanne
Airs Sundays at 9pm et/pt on Showtime

I watched the original series back when it aired on CBS. I really liked it, even when it deteriorated somewhat in the second season.  The new series is not as good, for several reasons. For one thing, it moves way too slowly. I think if TV would give David Lynch a show about paint drying, he would relish the opportunity. Secondly, it makes very little sense (even less so than the original series).  Third, it doesn't have as much humor as the original did. Lastly, Kyle MacLachlan's character is possessed by Evil Bob throughout much of the series. He and Michael Ontkean's characters, Sheriff Truman were the best things about the show, as well as Audrey, who also seems to be missing (although, she does appear in the series, from what I've read).

It's great to see the original stars together, like the Log Lady, and Deputy Hawk, just to name a few.  There are some interesting bits, such as the couple in New York that get murdered by some monster. So far I've only watched the first episode. Perhaps it will get better. I hope so! If you only liked the first season of the original show, then you might skip this one.
