How do you think it has compared to the previous seasons?

What differences in style, storyline, character portrayals etc do you perceive and do you think it is better, worse or as good as the original?

Difficult to top season 1, but I think TPTR has done so. Season 1 had more humanity, emotion and character development, generally speaking (especially with peripheral characters). But, as far as technique of story telling TPTR has very much exceeded season 1 (and possibly even the reveal of Leland/Bob and the season 2 finale). 

As far as differences in story line, it's the opposite of season 1. Season 1 began with the main mystery and the subplots branched out off of it. Season 3 began with the subplots and gradually focused on the main mystery.

I am loving season 3, confusing and different as it was to begin with. 

I think the way the story is starting to cohere as the episodes get fewer and fewer has been genius and have much enjoyed how much guessing of what is going on we have all had to do.

I really want more - I want a season 4.

I don't NEED one - I WANT One.

This has exceeded all my expectations.  It's the Twin Peaks I always wanted to see.

If they bugger up the ending I'll be royally hacked off but even then there's still the ground breaking, genre changing, everything -ing Episode 8.  For that alone, the whole cast and crew deserve to win every possible tv award.  In fact, they need to create some new awards just so the Twin Peaks gang can get those.

Every episode makes me feel like I'm Naido.  And I appreciate it. Spoilers be damned.

Yeah, one might think the confusion and mystery is a gimmick in order to give artificial depth to a thin plot, but it's actually quite the opposite. 

It's been a welcome change to not have to slog through art films/works to be intellectually stimulated (hyperbole, of course, but the change is refreshing).

If you have never read "Viriconium" by M John Harrison, give it a go.  I think you'll like it a lot.  There are a few different editions around so the simplest thing is to look for the biggest one.
