The new series of Twin Peaks debuts tonight, but a handful of critics have already viewed Parts 1 and 2, and are impressed with what they’ve seen.

Director David Lynch screened the first two episodes for cast and crew, as well as a handful of journalists, and the early word is good.

Mashable called new Twin Peaks "Eerily familiar, disorienting, dreamy, deeply unsettling. In other words, perfection. Peak Peaks."

Yahoo said "Based on the first two hours, it’s safe to say Twin Peaks‘ 18 difficult new episodes will rattle, baffle, and enrage, and that’s exactly what TV needs right now."

And while those present were sworn to secrecy regards plot, Yahoo's critic did reveal that "There is a shocking moment that is among the scariest things I’ve ever seen on TV."

New Twin Peaks screens on Showtime tonight in the States and on Sky Atlantic in the early hours of Monday morning in the UK.
