  • Max of course is looking forward to the new series. But will it be the same without Donna

Lynch purists voiced their delight at the look of the premiere, which was as unsettling and replete with hallucinatory symbolism - from talking trees and people speaking backwards to moving zigzag floors - from the original series.

The original Twin Peaks that aired back in the early 1990s became one of the biggest cult TV shows ever, and one of the most weird.

The original series posed a simple question: who killed Laura Palmer?

Check them out below (obviously via Reverb).

Season one had seven episodes plus the pilot. It also reminded us of the huge influence that David Lynch's 1990 murder-mystery series has had on modern television.

"Elementary", 10 p.m. (KIRO): Season-five finale of the present-day version of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic characters; a gang war erupts in New York City as Holmes and Watson pursue an elusive criminal.

Quiz: Twin Peaks is returning to our screens... That's so long ago that MTV was still playing music videos from time to time. Or will Cooper return to his more placid, coffee-loving, pie-eating, crime-solving self?

Early reviews clustered towards the cautious, primarily as Showtime and Lynch didn't make episodes available early to critics and embargoed reviews from those who had attended the L.A. premiere till after the first episode aired on Sunday in an attempt to hide plot details and ramp up anticipation. He walks to the bathroom, making like he's going to brush his teeth, then squeezes toothpaste into the sink, and bashes his head into the mirror.

Creators David Lynch and Mark Frost are back at the helm after teaming up with United States network Showtime.

Madam Secretary (9 p.m., CBS) - In the Season 3 finale, Elizabeth seeks NATO's support against Russian Federation. By June 1991, Twin Peaks seemed as lifeless as Laura Palmer.

The first two parts brings back a bunch of characters we grew to love in Twin Peaks. We visited Vegas, but only for a second, to watch the show plant a flag for more story in a two-hour premiere that was crowded with flag-plants. We saw evil Agent Cooper with his white trash wig. Here in the heartland of Twin Peaks Nation, this abominable man in black sows and reaps a pulpy-corny crop of pain and sorrow, mostly by manipulating and murdering women.

Ben Horne also ran One-Eyed Jacks, a Casino and Brothel, in which Laurel Palmer herself had been an employee; this was discovered by Special Agent Dale Cooper and Audrey Horne who managed to smuggle herself into One-Eyed Jacks to find out more of its dealings -unfortunately at one point almost becoming an "special" employee to her own father.

Uproxx' Alan Sepinwall was far more effusive in his praise describing the first episode as "the work of a director in full command of his talents and his desires".
