It's on Showtime. https://www.sho.com/twin-peaks/the-return

Not sure how much that would cost you though. I'm surprised it's not on Netflix since the first two seasons are, but I guess they think it's still selling subscriptions for them.

*Edit* There's a 30 day free trial. Plenty of time to watch it if you want.

Thanks for the tip, but as many others, it's US-only I wouldn't be surprised if the series was on Prime too, but in Europe we have a terribly poor selection. If we want to watch those series, we can either get a VPN (yet another subscription…) or download them illegally.

I'm pretty sure there is a demand, but I suppose that for Netflix, Prime, and others, it's not interesting to buy the rights outside of US. Similarly, HBO, Disney, … are usually impossible to subscribe too (that's even weirder). Sometimes it really feels like it's the old continent
Maybe it's reciprocal for European shows.

Sorry to hear that. It's odd to me that those companies wouldn't want to present more choices to entice subscribers over there. I guess the potential extra customers wouldn't justify the cost of getting those shows?

Oh well… I hear Sweden might be able to help you out.

It is.
BBC's shows for example, although BBC America exists, do not air in USA at the same time as in europe but are delayed.

Same goes for (some) asian shows too. You can watch them on asian streams sometimes months before Netflix.

Eventually everything becomes available somewhere, all you need is patience.

I watched the premier of Superman and Lois with kids or whatever it's called. It's on something called CW? Dunno. Wife pulled the show up for me on my pc I liked it but I watch almost no TV, so I'm probably easy to satisfy. I've never heard of arrowverse but I'm assuming there are several superhero shows that are on TV somewhere. Might look into it.

Series three of Twin Peaks is a masterpiece. It's a serious mistake to look at it as a series or individual episodes, rather, for me, it is more of an eighteen hour feature film. Also, should you be after the complete series on DVD, the last time I saw them on sale it was all rather low-priced. I can certainly understand people not wanting to pay for ten viewing channels, that's all a mess these days, imo.

And episode eight of series three might be the best hour of television ever. Come at me.

That episode was the mind-fuck I did not expect. Got a light? I just got goose-bumps just thinking about it.

I'm not sure if this was in the same episode, could be, but this is also the most haunting piece of music.

This one is also nice from the Fire Walk With Me.

I also like how each episode in season 3 ends with a musical number.

Aye, the musical score of each and every episode or film by Lynch also begs to be analyzed. For Lynch, sound matters, perhaps equal to each and every visual element and, in some cases, maybe even more so.

The CW has multiple super hero shows; Arrow, Flash, Supergirl, Batwoman, etc, etc. Most of the well-known DC characters are there somewhere.

Those CW shows tend to start off well then become meetings in hallways about feelings and other crap….dear god they get boring real quick. It's like they try to hook you with a fine start then they get all….icky. I've not watched the Superman one yet, but it's waiting for me on the pvr.

Wanda Vision is perhaps the first Disney/Marvel show/movie I've real hope for. I was afraid they wouldn't embrace who Wanda really is, but they seem to be going all the way, unless this is some nasty red herring to be yanked away. May the House of M rule for generations to come!!

WandaVision has been cleverly brilliant in the way it has paid homage to so many well-known TV shows (sit coms). The number of Easter Eggs in each episode is amazing!!

In other words sitcom haters who refused to watch those since they were born (me!) should stay away.
Right?
