I reckon you would be totally lost if you hadn't seen the original show yet paradoxically it feels completely new and different. I am completely engaged and feel there is no better synthesis of all of Lynch's cinematic endeavors.
Episodes 1 to 4: disarmingly, compellingly mad like nothing on TV has ever been. A confidently experimental Lynch off the leash and at the peak of his powers, deftly balancing the procedural and preposterous, the refined and profane. Darker. Visually lush but never showy. Warm character moments, but no wallowing in fan-service. For every question answered is another to be answered; I'd have it no other way.
Just the sheer fact that it's still so true to itself makes it all the most rewarding. When you watch this, it's like your whole surroundings are affected by it and your world changes. Fuck me, I'm excited.
