Like most, I always suspected the commentaries and DTS tracks of the Artisan S1 wouldn't be seen again, so I've held onto my copy of it. Glad to know it wasn't for naught.

Crappy cover art aside, looks to be an overall great release!

I'm usually one of the first people to bitch about lousy cover art, but this doesn't bother me much for some reason. Sure, it could've been better, but it also could've been a lot worse. I'd give it a "B."

I'm actually not surprised that none of the Artisan supplements made it to this set, considering all of the conflict between Paramount and Artisan over the series.

I own the original Artisan release plus the import pilot, and I'll defintely be getting this set. I held off on the season two they put out a few months back in anticipation of this one. Kind of disappointing that the interviews on S2 didn't make it, but I seem to recall reading that all of the bells and whistles on the complete series would be new and nothing (or very little) would be carried over between releases.

What really has me bummed out is that Lynch vetoed the Season Three graphic novel that everyone else wanted to package in this.

I'm glad that this set is coming especially with the pilot. However, after all of the brouhaha over the artcover, they just decided to keep it the same???

I'm thrilled this set is coming out, so I'm going to sell off my Seasons 1 and 2 box sets. The lack of DTS and some commentaries doesn't bother me -- I'll be more happy to have the complete series, including the pilot! (How much $ do you think I could get for my S1 set?)

They are going for $50 to $90 on ebay right now.

I'll be holding on to my current S1 and S2 sets. Hopefully, they will release the pilot separately and I can replace my current pilot disc.

I wonder if there's any chance they'll release disc 10 by itself? Probably not, but I really hope they do, since I already have both seasons, and the pilot.

I probably should have held off on buying Season 2, but I was so glad they were FINALLY releasing it, I just couldn't wait. Now I wish I had.

I have the two season sets and I love this show so much I'm going to double dip for sure. Of course I'll always wish for more, but I'm happy this is coming out with the pilot and a pretty decent amount of new extras.

Do you feel this release is "definitive" ?
I don't know, I haven't seen the final product yet. Have you?

When it comes to extras, I think it's ridiculous to buy something you already own. And considering the extras on S1 ranged from merely fair to piss poor, I welcome all-new content made by a top DVD producer.

I love Twin Peaks and just have to have every special feature I can get my hands on, so I'll probably buy the Gold box and assemble my own "Definitive Edition" complete with new custom cover art. I can probably just replace discs 2 & 3 with the 4 discs from the S1 Artisan set and make it a 12-disc set. Discs 1-5 would then be "Season 1" and Discs 6-12 would be "Season 2". A little more work, but then I get the best of all worlds. Of course if Paramount wants to step up and carry over all those Artisan special features, that would certainly make things easier.

Well, I guess I'm all alone on this count, but I love the season 1 episode commentaries on the Artisan release. Even more than the DTS track (which is phenomenal, and noticeably better than the season 2 DD-5.1s), it's the commentaries that will require that I keep that one, even as I double-dip.

Yeah, the Season 1 set is still going to have a lot of stuff worth keeping...Season 2, not so much, but I still plan on picking up this set. Now only if we could get a special edition of FWWM.

I'm happy enough with the previously released season sets, although Season 2 could have been better.

What I'd really like to have is a properly mastered version of the pilot, as the Tiawanese import used a PAL source for the transfer.

Wha--?! Can you give details on this? Or is this a gag? Who was writing it?

Can't wait to see the deleted scenes!

I just read the final specs on this set and, yea, I think I'll have to get it. I just bought S2, and haven't watched it, but this set looks far too sweet. Lots of awesome extras I want to have. Depending on the MSRP I think I'll have to bite.

No, you're not alone on that. The commentaries were good. But considering that Lynch hates commentaries (see his recent book, Catching The Big Fish, for his take on commentaries) I'm not surprised they didn't get carried over or enhanced. The rest of the S1 extras were pretty lousy, I thought.

I remember Lynch said, at some Q&A, that he was fine with the idea of someone doing a Graphic Novel Season 3, but he did not want it to be associated with him. So I'm not surprised that he vetoed it, especially if it was to be included with the set.

I never watched this show before, but it's a definite rental, if only for the positive things I've heard about it.

Here's a French site that shows what we'll be seeing w/ the remastered Pilot episode. Quality looks fantastic...I can't wait for this set now.
