On the off-chance that you're not being sarcastic, Twin Peaks was not photographed or composed for widescreen.

But then it won't fit my widescreen TV!

I NEED this set. The pilot screencaps look absolutely beautiful after the best quality you could get was unspeakably awful (even in its legit, Museum of Television & Radio version!), and it's basically confirmed that this is a "Gold Box" that will live up to its moniker.

I can't wait to show my friends this. I've been raving about the show for a few years now, and I already have one sold solely on the idea of the Log Lady.

The set does look great, and I'd expect nothing less from Charles who did the most recent Gladiator release. I think the Log Lady Intros will be the only thing that looks a bit sub par, which is unfortunate, but if that's the only bad thing, how can I complain!?

I might even be in two of the featurettes! Not to brag or anything.

There's not much that can be done about that. Those intros were shot on cruddy analog video.

Doh, hmm, still on the fence, and it doesn't help that half of you go one way and the other half the other, heh. Maybe I'll just end up buying this and keeping the old S1 for the commentaries. That makes sense to me.

I had originally thought that... but then back in August I was like "but if I sell the first season I'll make enough money to buy this box set as well as the "My So Called Life" DVD and have enough leftover for lunch"... and since I had previously listened to the commentaries, I just sold it... I'm glad I did.

Here is a short review with several pictures of the packaging. Unfortunately, the reviewer focuses primarily on the special features and at the end of the review notes, "I can't really say anything more about the quality of the video and audio, but I'm sure it looks like the Season 2 set."

My big question is how the video and audio stack up against Artisan's Season 1 box set. That and are the "previously on Twin Peaks" segments included?

Good News: Episodes look and sound great, 30-minute interview segment with Lynch (and Kyle and Madchen) is fun, documentaries are well-made.

Bad News: No episode commentaries, no "previously on" or "next on" bumpers at beginning and end of shows.

I guess the really good news is that this doesn't feel like a double dip...no bonus features from previous editions were carried over, so fans who bought those season sets will have a reason to keep them.

What bonus features are on discs 2-9? Disc 1 is the pilot. Disc 10 is bonus features. Disc 9 supposedly has some deleted scenes.

What bonus features and content will I be missing that isn't on the previous season sets if I just manage to get my hand on Discs 1 and 10?

I'm sure this has been mentioned before, but for a total newbie, what is the correct (or best?) way to go through this set?

Pilot --> Season 1 --> Season 2

Why would you watch it in any other order?

Well. Let's be fair and assume he was asking because the film is a prequel and he may have read up on that.

So... as long as you watch the movie, Fire Walk With Me, last (even though it's a prequel) you'll be fine.

Enjoy

Or maybe he had heard there were two cuts of the pilot on the disc. Do NOT watch the European cut until after viewing seasons 1 and 2.

Thanks for the info, guys; the different pilot versions and FWWM were indeed mostly what I was concerned with.

This is probably a lame question, but as someone who has only seen Lynch's Mulholand Dr. (and loved it) would this series be in a similar style?

Also, I am a huge (HUGE) Lost fan. I've heard that Twin Peaks appeals to the same crowd. Is there any truth to that?

This would be a huge blind buy purchase but I'm seriously considering it. Any thoughts?

David Lynch repeats a lot of themes in his movies, and in Twin Peaks. You'll find a lot to love about Twin Peaks, frankly, if you also like Mulholland Drive. The offbeat, weird humor, the beautiful women, the bizarre, terrifying dream sequences, the innocence in the face of strange evil....It's all there and then some.

At the center of Twin Peaks is an amazing murder mystery with some supernatural elements. You'll be cheering our hero, FBI Agent Dale Cooper (played wonderfully by Kyle MacLauchlin) after one episode, and be chomping at the bit for more.

Is it like LOST? Yes, I suppose LOST would be Twin Peak's grandchild. It's a little more like X-FILES, with a soap opera satire twist. Think X-Files/Desperate Housewives/Lost, because all of these shows wouldn't exist without TWIN PEAKS.

It obsessed the world 17 years ago. I couldn't recommend a blind buy with any more enthusiasm to you. GET IT.

Well, I pretty much hate Desperate Housewives but everything else you said makes me want to drool for the show. After all, I'm an X-Files fan as well. I'm going to buy this set as soon as I can afford it. Thanks!

Heh. It's similar to Desperate Housewives in the sense that everything looks lovely on the surface, but there's some really nasty and compelling stuff going on underneath! I'm fairly sure that Marc Cherry is a big David Lynch fan, and saw Blue Velvet once or twice.

As a big X-FILES fan, you'll be happy to know that David Duchovny is in the 2nd season of Twin Peaks, playing....an FBI Agent! (With a twist!) Pretty sure Chris Carter was a fan as well!
