It is happening, again - Twin Peaks returns

We've gotten to see multiple gruesome attacks in the first two hours, which is more than the whole of season one and two combined. The intensity and bloodthirstiness of Fire Walk With Me is present again in the first two parts.

26 years after Laura Palmer said those words to Agent Dale Cooper, Twin Peaks is back for a third and possibly final season.

Kyle MacLachlan reprises his role as Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Dale Cooper in the 18-episode series, which began its run on Sunday on United States network Showtime.

Given that this show is debuting at 2am so it goes out at the same time both here and the US, you'll need to keep yourself awake with a damn good cup of coffee.

Despite an eerie sojourn to New York City where a unusual glass box is being fastidiously monitored and a new murder mystery in South Dakota, both proving that expanding the Twin Peaks universe is a good thing, it's the big return to the Red Room that really sets pulses racing.

Grab a cup of coffee and a slice of cherry pie, because Twin Peaks is officially back!

But the show will be chock-full of characters edging on Game of Thrones' distinction.

Elementary (10 p.m., CBS) - In the Season 5 finale, a gang war erupts in NY.

'And then one thing led to another, and there we were-back in'.

On the other hand, the "Twin Peaks" faithful have a pretty good idea of what's ahead in the 18 episodes. You half expected director David Lynch to go full-meta and smash through the screen and punch your brain the way that cosmic horror nimbus escaped that glass box and furiously shredded the eyeballs of those young lover couch potatoes.

Feinberg added that Twin Peaks had all the weird, surreal moments you would expect but it all held together. "And I think it will show up on screen".

My guess - apart from the distinct feeling I have that Lynch and Frost are reminding me that I should go to the toilet before the show starts (all that running water!) - is this new opening is teasing that A LOT of time will be spent in the infamous Black Lodge. But one thing, at least, seems certain: the show is still its signature kooky self.

The first season of the series revolved around the investigation into the murder of Laura Palmer, played by Sheryl Lee. But inscrutability in and of itself is not necessarily a virtue; if a show is designed not to be understood, it also loses opportunities to connect.

Twin Peaks is now, as it was then, the iconic suburban soap opera Peyton Place but reflected like a film negative.

But it's early days yet. It's too bright to make out whether or not anything's actually behind her eyes, and yet it's odd and provocatively lovely all the same.

"This time, we won't be at the mercy of a network telling us, "You're not making the grade" and taking us off the air".
