a little more info from the comic con from dugpa.com:

Twin Peaks Definitive Gold Box Set Deleted Scenes Announced at Today's San Diego Comic Con

I've gotten word back from Warren Hayes, Dugpa.com reader and Toy Dealer from the Cargo Hold. Here is his report:

Spoiler:

The presentation on Twin Peaks lasted about 5-7 minutes tops. Charles de Lauzirika came out and addressed fans of Dugpa.com and the Twin Peaks Gazette and said their worries would be put to rest and that there would in fact be Deleted Scenes from Season 1 and 2 included in the upcoming Twin Peaks boxed set. He also mentioned that they went the extra mile to interview many people that were not interviewed before for either Twin Peaks box set. Some of the people I noticed that were interviewed which didn't apear on the Season 2 set were Sheryl Lee, Joan Chen, Ray Wise, David Lynch, and Angelo Badalamenti. They also said that both versions of the Pilot would be included as well. They showed some clips of people talking about the Twin Peaks phenomenon and Ray Wise said "I really hoped that I wouldn't turn out to b the killer." which got a big laugh. Another extra was a roundtable interview with Lynch, Madchen, and Kyle. All in all, I wish they spent more time on the box set but the Deleted Scenes being included was the absolute best news that I could have ever expected.

OK, sounds like I'll sell my pilot and S2 set, but I'm still keeping the original Artisan S1 set.

That'll be an interesting feat. Season 2 is worthless without season 1. Are there really that many people who own S1 who haven't yet picked up S2?

I'm going to sit tight on the pilot, Artisan S1, and S2 sets until this is definitive set is actually released and reviews come in about quality, framing, content, audio, etc. If everything checks out... no misframing, no reversed audio channels, no shortened episodes, etc. Then I will probably sell what I have as a package, or give it away.

But I don't see getting rid of S2 alone as being an easy thing.

Probably several 10s of thousands, at least. Of course, I'd sell them separately.

Between this and Blade Runner, DVD is on a roll this year. Those commercials (seen some on YouTube) are great. And the SNL skits are a HUGE surprise.

So it looks like NONE of the extras from the Artisan season 1 set will be back (audio commentaries, DTS sound, interviews, archival material from the official Twin Peaks magazine, and perhaps most importantly the optional on-screen script notes), with the exception of the Log Lady intros.

What's also odd is that there are interviews on all six discs of Paramount's season 2 set, but these aren't listed on the press release. I guess it's possible they will just be edited into the four-part documentary on disc 10. And only FOUR deleted scenes out of 30 episodes... that's a little disappointing.

And I really hate the cover art and the "Gold Box" name... whatever that means.

Definitive my ass...

C'mon guys. If you, at a minimum, can't even re-create what is already out there, there is no business calling it definitive.

I had been waiting for this set, now it looks like I will have to buy this and the original S1 set.

I think some people confuse the term "definitive" with "comprehensive."

Yeah, that is weird. They are so tiny, why not simply include the original DVDs of S2? But I see the grid from DVD 6 is on the separate DVD 10 of the Gold Box, so the DVDs on the Gold box may indeed not even include the complete S2, if the last DVD proves to be altered in this way. I mean, are they really going to use all of those brief, scattershot interviews on the separate 4-part doc?

Definitive: Authoritative and apparantly exhaustive.

Definitive implies comprehensive.

Do you feel this release is "definitive" ?

I was actually just going off of what was on the back of the S1 box when I wrote this... this is what's actually (apparently) gone (from the Digital Bits review): seven audio commentaries, on-screen script note access, Mark Frost interview with Wrapped in Plastic founders Craig Miller and John Thorne, Learning to Speak in the Red Room with Michael J. Anderson featurette, An Introduction to David Lynch featurette, 17 Pieces of Pie: Shooting at the Mar T (AKA RR) Diner featurette, The Twin Peaks Directory (with filmographies, biographies and postcards from the cast), Easter eggs on each episode's special features menu.

Realistically, the DTS being gone is no surprise... having a DTS track and a 5.1 track and a 2.0 track and a commentary track for each episode meant that only two episodes would fit per disc in the S1 set... a 15-disc set wouldn't be very practical. The commentaries might have to be licensed, plus even if they had them it would be weird to have the pilot without a commentary, episodes 2-8 with a commentary and then 9-30 without a commentary... and they probably can't/won't record new ones.

I'm not trying to be picky, but these omissions are significant. I'm thrilled the whole series will be available in one package, but the lack of extra material that has been available for several years makes the "definitive" title ring a little false.

um. no commentaries means i am not going to be buying this. I bought the season 1 set when it came out but i sold it because the pilot wasnt included and i could not understand one thing that was going on both times i tried to watch the set. then when i heard this box set would have the pilot i really wanted to pick this up but without the commentaries this set does not sound very appealing anymore. maybe ill wait until its like $25 if that ever happens.
they really cant get this twin peaks release right.

I feel better being convinced not to get rid of my Season 1 set. Didn't realize the lack of commentaries. For now, I can handle missing the special features. Still wish I had a decent quality version of the pilot, though I'm sure there will be a better version out there after this is released
