The show, whose third season arrives on Sunday, some 26 years after the end of the second season, is considered TV royalty, a longtime throne-sitter in the network castle. That show was "NCIS", which is just one among almost 500 scripted series beckoning viewers this year on almost countless broadcast, cable and streaming channels.
It's been 25 years since directors David Lynch and Mark Frost's disturbing TV drama Twin Peaks last aired in 1991 on ABC.
I was a faithful viewer that first, eight-episode season, even though there was a big drop in quality from the first to the second episode. Over the decades of TV history, there is only one reason a network or cable channel has hidden the premiere episode of a series: It stinks.
What is it, then, that makes it such an enduring show?
The Globe's top picks for what to see and do each weekend, in Boston and beyond. Yes, I'm that guy. If you judge the first two seasons of the series in terms of ambition, there's no question it belongs on the short list of greats. The show burst onto primetime like a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside a plastic body bag. In this dream, he is in the red room, along with Laura Palmer. "And someday, if we're lucky, he might even be a good one". In May 2015, Lynch and Showtime president David Nevins announced the start of preproduction, adding that the limited series was expanding from the initial vision of nine episodes. Twin Peaks is back and fans of the original show are brimming with excitement at the possibility of one of the most original and exciting TV stories ever is finally back on our screens. In the show's heyday, NY magazine's John Leonard wrote, "Everybody in the continental United States - including my children, my editors, my enemies - wanted to know about the dwarf". Set in a fictitious, Washington state mill town supposedly five miles from the Canadian border, the series was part soap opera, part nightmare.

At the Pentagon, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said the missile test showed North Korea isn't heeding cautions from the worldwide community.
Twin Peaks isn't a real town but numerous show's locations can be found between Fall City and North Bend, off highway 90 east of Seattle. While filming his 1986 film Blue Velvet, Lynch wanted to use This Mortal Coil's haunting cover of Tim Buckley's "Song to the Siren". What he found out is that no one was quite who they appeared to be. The list of auteurs now working in TV includes Vince Gilligan, Matthew Weiner, Jane Campion, David Simon, Baz Luhrmann, Louis C.K., Steven Soderbergh, and the Duplass brothers, to name a few. In Twin Peaks, it finds its fullest expression. "And the love of the world and the characters". It delivered a giant puzzle to be pieced together. Audrey was merely an acquaintance to Laura, but her crush on Special Agent Cooper leads her to become involved in the solution of the murder. They had an Internet sensibility, in a way, setting the stage for today's rampant online theorizing and PhD-like analysis of shows such as "Game of Thrones".
But they didn't reward that active viewing with an ending, or, more accurately, a sense of an ending. I believe there has to be some structure and forethought in long-form storytelling, some order, no matter how slight, to the chaos.
The original series eventually - though not almost soon enough for its viewers - revealed who had killed homecoming queen Laura Palmer. A replica Twin Peaks sheriff's vehicle sits in the parking lot, welcoming fans but warning them not to disturb the driving range. It was too slippery to get a handle on.
-"The owls are not what they seem".
"I was up for whatever trajectory they had Cooper on", he told the AP. They can reach upward to the skies, but they need to have at least one foot on common ground.

According to the NYT, it was that discovery that led to the late October announcement by since fired F.B.I. director James B. Weiner began messaging the girl when she was a sophomore in high school, the newspaper reported .

Ultimately, it's a temperament issue. Nothing bothers me about it. People want to know.
Twin Peaks fans listening to The In Sound From Way Out! may experience deja vu while listening to "Visa to the Stars", Badalamenti's contribution to the album.
But too many other viewers weren't so sure. I think our success was just because the audience at that time were craving for something intelligent.because everything was very, sort of, light and fluffy and bubblegum-y at the time.
