The series is called Twin Peaks: The Return but, as a number of fans have complained, it hasn’t returned to the Washington town of Twin Peaks very often. The original series was set almost entirely in what one character called "this godforsaken burg", population 51, 201, with occasional diversions to the Black Lodge, a nightmarish place occupied by malign spirits who travel by electricity, talk backwards and feed on something called garmonbozia. That's a substance made up of human pain and suffering, but which looks an awful lot like creamed corn.
