We have the (final) season 2 dvd, we also watched it when it was broadcast. Pretty sure I've never seen the first season. "Fire Walk With Me" is a must see to make any sense of the story. But maybe it's better not to even try.

Never watched the original.
Started watching the new version, it was a bit too weird for me, or I wasn't in the right mood to watch it.

Yeah, I bought the box set of series 1 & 2 recently. Lynch should have quit after the first series, which was pretty much perfect television.

Likewise. I always think I /should/ get round to watching it, but never seem to find time or the inclination. /:

I don't think so. I should watch more decent movies or TV.

Not sure what his angle was in doing the sequel, if not an uncharacteristic cash cow thing. Finance future projects? Child support?

which sequel are we talking about now?

I pretty much love all three serieses of Twin Peaks. Need to watch the film again as I haven't seen that in aaaages but it definitely had things I liked. The phone call from his house thing stayed with me forever!

The one he just did. I'll watch it if/when it gets released to dvd & our library acquires it. It did get quite good reviews. I suppose I should keep an open mind, but TBH a dottard Kyle McLachlan (etc) is not something I look forward to.

Oh, I really enjoyed the new one. Some episodes are right Out There and it's still messing with the 'drama/soap' format but the core was highly entertaining. McLachlan in particular gets to really enjoy himself with effectively 2-3 different roles, and is very good indeed. Some of the other returning actors are less successful but I didn't find that a problem at all really, and it was fun spotting them. I was surprised about how much time Lynch himself spends on screen, but that was often hilarious too.

Was he the same deaf FBI agent he played in Fire Walk With Me?

yep, sure is.  

David Duchovny pops up in one episode playing his old role as well, which is a highly amusing moment.

I've not seen the third series yet, so I will reserve judgement, but the second milked the first in an unseemly way.

I may have lost the plot (is there one?). As in, I count the first two seasons broadcast 1990-91 as "the first series", and the one started last year as "the second series".

That is certainly not how the showrunners present it, Series 1 was an 8-episode run in 1990, Series 2 was 22 episodes in 90-91 and Series 3 18 episodes in 2017. Fire Walk With Me the film in 92.

Still, it's Lynch. Doesn't have to be logical or consecutive or anything like that.

And just for fun, when the episodes are referred to by number, some sources start with the 'pilot' episode as 1 (IMDB etc.) whereas some start with the episode after the pilot as 1 (Bluray disc, wikipedia etc.) so where an episode is referred to by number it won't necessarily be the one you think it is.

Well, about a third of the way into season 2 (1990/91) and still enjoying it enormously. Still looking forward to the fractured cliff-hanger ending that finished the season, and the whole series as far as anybody knew until they rustled up the cash for a third season a quarter of a century later.

Well goddam it. We have season 2 (1990-91) on disk, and I've seen FWWM (which is a 'prequel' to the tv series: it explains the whodunnit, wheredunnit and whydunnit, the 'it' being the murder of LP and much else).

I'm with Milko on this one.  The first series was the first 8 episodes and was an artistic whole with a beginning, a middle and an end.  If left to its own devices would have stood higher than the franchise as a whole now does.

I'm not blaming anyone involved for taking the money & milking the franchise, though - I'd have done the same.
