    Twin Peaks: The Return

    ★★★★★

    The journey is finally complete, and I'm completely floored. I've loved watching this whole series, but this season (sorry, this 18-hour movie) blows everything that came before it completely out of the water. Lots of moments that will stay with me for a long time.
