    One of the best pilots/seasons I've seen in a long time, just a great TV show. It's too bad ABC ruined the second half of the second season. The show nearly rebounds near the end of the second season, but it just doesn't live up to the first season and a half. What could have been the best TV show ever, instead settles as one of those "what could have been" types of shows.

    I love the first half of season 2 and the last few episodes as well. Unfortunately there are some very out of place plot lines, forgettable character introductions, and poorly constructed character developments. Laura Palmer's murder should not have been solved so early, but the writers do manage to end the series with a bang.

I quite enjoy the series as a whole, but it could be a little bit tighter and cleaner in its second season. Still, Twin Peaks is one of the most unique television series of all time, and as a whole the series would get a 9/10. It is certainly worth watching, particularly if you can suspend your disbelief and connect with the early nineties. Expand

    This second season of Twin Peaks isn't nearly as satisfying as its predecessor. The first nine episodes returns audiences to that familiar backdrop of season one. However, the show soon squanders its potential halfway through. The entire plot of the series seems to dissolve.

From the tenth episode until the last three, the show can't seem to decide what it wants to do with itself, ultimately morphing into a sense of alienation and shallow mediocrity. The last episode of the season, and the entire series, is an unforgettable conclusion to something poetic and grand. The final moments of Beyond Life and Death will frustrate viewers, but they'll also experience a raw-nerve sensation of satisfaction. Expand

    The writing and the story look and sound different. Even when nothing happens, it's different TV. [6 Nov 1990]

    Who killed Laura Palmer? Many viewers, tired of the hype, are saying, Who cares? I say it too, but as praise. Plot is irrelevant; moments are everything. Lynch and Frost have mastered a way to make a weekly series endlessly interesting.
