Co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost and a large number of the cast and crew have returned to participate in this extraordinary new collection. "Finally the pilot is together with the series. The picture looks clean with good color correction. The sound is really good," said David Lynch. "I think this is a great definitive Twin Peaks Gold Set - the Gold represents the highest quality. A lot of work has gone in to this, and in my opinion it has really paid off." "Working closely with David Lynch, I believe we've put together the ultimate Twin Peaks DVD box set with the most unique, interesting and comprehensive collection of content possible that will more than excite the ardent fan and engage new ones," commented Ken Ross, Executive Vice President and General Manager, CBS Home Entertainment. "And we drank some damn good cups of coffee along the way.'" This 10-disc set includes "Greetings from Twin Peaks" collectable postcards and a plethora of special features, including hours of newly-minted bonus content, featuring exclusive cast and crew interviews and rare footage never before released on DVD, produced by award-winning DVD producer Charles de Lauzirika ("Alien Quadrilogy," "Spider-Man 2: Special Edition," "Blade Runner: The Final Cut.") "Secrets from Another Place: Creating Twin Peaks" is a collection of four new documentaries exploring the origins, production and impact of the show. The cast and crew, including co-creator Mark Frost, composer Angelo Badalamenti, singer Julee Cruise, actors Kyle MacLachlan, Joan Chen, Piper Laurie, Ray Wise, Sheryl Lee, Kenneth Welsh, Maedchen Amick, Miguel Ferrer and many others share their memories of creating the show in this in-depth piece covering the sensational and tumultuous evolution of TWIN PEAKS in four parts: "Northwest Passage: Creating the Pilot," "Freshly Squeezed: Creating Season One," "Where We're From: Creating the Music" and "Into the Night: Creating Season Two." Co-creator and four-time Academy Award(R) nominee David Lynch, Kyle MacLachlan and Maedchen Amick take an amusing look back at the series in "A Slice of Lynch," an all-new get-together of friends over piping hot coffee and sweet cherry pie. "Return to Twin Peaks" follows a group of devoted fans to the 2006 Twin Peaks Festival, where the show's faithful have been regularly gathering for costume contests, celebrity sightings, trivia games and other wildness in the woods outside of Seattle. And an Interactive Map allows viewers to revisit the show's unforgettable locations as they appear today...and how to find them in real life. Thought to have been lost forever, a selection of deleted scenes has been unearthed for this collection and approved by David Lynch, offering viewers additional clues and background on some of their favorite characters and locations in the series. The collection showcases the phenomenon that was TWIN PEAKS with such archival nuggets as the "Saturday Night Live" opening monologue and "Twin Peaks" sketch featuring Kyle MacLachlan, the "Falling" music video featuring Julee Cruise, the Richard Beymer behind-the-scenes photo gallery, original network promo spots and many more rare gems! Newly remastered from the original negative and personally approved by David Lynch, the episodes have never looked better. Moreover, viewers will have the option of enjoying the episodes in either new 5.1 Surround Sound or the original 2.0 network television audio.CBS paid NBC Universal for the “Twin Peaks” SNL sketches Kyle MacLachlan appeared in during the first “Peaks” season? Smart! Included also is the fascinating reworked pilot released to cinemas overseas. It uses footage never seen in the series to wrap up the mystery of Laura Palmer’s murder quite differently than the series did. Extras listed in the press release:
International Version With Alternate Ending Log Lady Intros For Each Episode Deleted Scenes (4 scenes) Production Documents The SNL Sketches A Slice of Lynch Northwest Passage: Creating The Pilot Freshly Squeezed: Creating Season 1 Where We're From: Creating The Music Into The Night: Creating Season 2 Return To Twin Peaks Interactive Map (8 Pods) "Falling" Music Video Georgia Coffee Commercials (5 Spots) Image Galleries The Richard Beymer Gallery Unit Photography Twin Peaks Trading Cards TV spots Premiere Spots (8 Spots) There's No Place Like Home Spot 1-900 Promo Ad T-Shirt Ad Holiday Greeting Patriot GreetingAgain, this long-awaited “Peaks” set is due Oct. 30 (the same day as the long-awaited “Angel” and “My So-Called Life” complete series sets), and fans can lock in via pre-order whatever Amazon’s lowest price will be between now and then.

Beautifully made. Nicely cast, well acted. A-list credentials but… this is style for styles sake. It was odd not because it was intrinsically odd in other words by the nature of the story e.g. The Prisoner, but because THAT WAS ITS SELLING POINT. Why were those characters the way the were? The only explanation was BECAUSE THEY ARE, sorry I’m a grown up, NOT GOOD ENOUGH! Lynch is an amazing film maker but this was him at his most indulgent, it was a petulant two fingers up to conventional television (and good on for doing so) but this did not have anything to say. It was tele-visual sleight of hand. ANYONE (even the Bret Ratners of this world) can artificially create eccentricity on screen. You could create the most generic and lame sitcom in the world BUT give the lead character a tail and before you know where you are all sorts of desperate “individuals” (who are just so individual) are telling you the oh so obvious subtext here. It’s ego masturbation of the most cringe worthy and embarrassing kind. I’m so special because I can see what he’s saying here…. He isn’t saying anything! It’s a gimmick. The “oddness” of Twin Peaks is to it, what breasts were to Baywatch. Baywatch may have been enjoyed by semi-evolved knuckle draggers but at least it was honest, crude, yes but honest. TWIN PEAKS is just an indulgence, it wasn’t groundbreaking or innovative. It’s closest equivilent would be The Blair Witch Project in so far as it’s a one off, the gimmick has been done and cannot be repeated. It’s easy to create this heightened reality because there are no boundaries, it’s a HELL OF A LOT MORE DIFFICULT to create something believable, that’s hard work. Ask ANY screenwriter. I hear so much slavish devotion to TWIN PEAKS but at the end of the day it was a conventional story with a gimmick. That isn’t to say it wasn’t well done, of course it was, but it was shallow vacuous entertainment and about as deep as your average puddle. At least something like Battlestar, The Prisoner etc have genuine subtext, they are actually about something. It was a programme for adolescent rebelling against the norm, for immature psuedo intellectual students to make them feel special. SORRY IF YOU’RE PISSED OF I’M NOT TRYING TO BAIT YOU…… JUST TRYING TO REDRESS THE BALANCE HERE….

FRAK YES! I hope they'll take this opportunity to expand the extras on the set, putting back in the stuff that was on the miniseries DVD but missing on the Season 1 DVD set. And other things, of course.

Since we're now caught up with season eleven, and it's gonna be one set per year, are they gonna continue to release future sets February-ish to coincide the next seasons premiere? Or will they now push them to a summer release during the show's hiatus?
Aug. 21, 2007, 7:49 a.m. CST
This almost has to be a mistake doesnt it. 59.98 for a two hour Galactica movie? I know people felt ripped off by the 2 full price boxes for the split second season, but if this is accurate, it sort of takes it to a whole new level.
Aug. 21, 2007, 8:19 a.m. CST
... it boldly mixed genres like no other show did before. Prior to it, you had cop shows, comedies, creepy "Twilight Zone" style snthology shows, soap operas, and mainstream dramas. And each stuck to its own conventions. The genius of "Twin Peaks" was that each episode freely mixed all of those genres, in the service of both telling the story and creating a unique world. I recently watched both seasons, and was again reminded that's there's very little weirdness for weirdness' sake (though there's SOME-- watch the Diane Keaton-directed episode, where you can still literally hear viewers by the millions running for the hills), but rather a rich tapestry of story telling that refused to be pigeonholed by the conventions of any one genre. TV in general has gotten so much better because of the example set by "Twin Peaks". Was it imperfect? Sure. But was it "the big con", just style for style's sake? No way.

sale for $15.99. Of course, Herc won't mention that because he doesn't get any money for the site linking to Best Buy. Instead, he'd rather have you pay 27.99 for Angel season 5 or 24.99 for Buffy season 4. Tch tch.

I don't think there is any redress of the balance needed. In fact, it's a shame that you have completely overthought one of the greatest soap opera-cum-horror stories of all time. So, TWIN PEAKS is not your particular cup of hot black coffee. Who cares?
Aug. 21, 2007, 9:08 a.m. CST
Didn't I see this previewed in a WB insert somewhere or am I totally imagining this? <p>Oh, and I'm all over that TWIN PEAKS set. Finally, we get a decent copy of the pilot episode and they even had the sense to include the brilliant SNL skit with Phil Hartman as Leland, Victoria Jackson as Audrey and Mike Myers as the Little Man From Another Place.</p>

Series Set is priced at $160 but the individual seasons are all around $40 each. Unless the complete series set includes a fourth season, it doesn't add up. What on the Complete Series justifies the extra $40?<p>Does the Angel Series Set contain extras not available on the already released sets? I'm trying to decide if I should get it or just the newly encheapened season sets.

However, they don't work well as a team because Millan keeps getting distracted by Hewitt's "twins." Finally, they travel to Wyoming to enlist the help of Robert Redford, the Horse Whisperer, who is revealed to be the original creator of the technique of "whispering." He reveals the ghost dog is actually urban-samurai Forest Whitaker and offers Hewitt $1 million dollars if she'll retire from whispering as she's giving the whole thing a bad name. Meanwhile, Cesar Millan travels to New Jersey with Whitaker and takes on a gig as official dog trainer for the mafia. Roll credits.

The Amazon and Best Buy prices should be down to $69.99 (or 30% off) by then. Still a bit pricey, but it's cheaper than HBO sets and most British import DVD sets for the same amount of 45-minute episodes. (I'm looking at you, MI-5!)

I've always heard of Twin Peaks when it was airing but never got a chance to see it before it left the air.

Another question... After the new "season" of Futurama runs, are they going to repackage them and sell them as individual episodes? Someone call the boys in accounting! I smell a cash grab!
Aug. 21, 2007, 3:19 p.m. CST
But IIRC, the Stewie Griffin Story wasn't part of a Season Set despite being sliced up. They'll probably release a "All the Movies Together" edition but not slice up in 22 minute eps.

so they made a box for the first 4 seasons? but umm...didnt the show last something like 9 or 10 seasons? i think it changed networks somewhere during its run but i doubt that would affect dvd releases.

1. The Doctor Who seasons are RIDICULOUSLY priced. I love the show, but $80-$90 for 13 episodes is not cool... I don't care about Confidential or behind the scenes or commentary. I just wanted the episodes and they made it damn hard for me to justify it at that AWFUL price. <p> 2. Yay for HD-DVD selections! The big news is that recently Viacom chose to go with HD-DVD, which opens a lot of material for the format. <p> 3. There is no three.<p> 4. Executives DO realize that there are some shows that people don't want to watch over and over, don't they? I'm talking about "Until Death" and "Dog Whisperer" specifically. WHO the hell would watch Dog Whisperer episodes more than once? Who the fuck would watch "Until Death" episodes IN THE FIRST FUCKING PLACE?!?!

Sublime television. The first and last episodes directed by Lynch are ansolutely amazing. This is a must buy. Also will be interesting to hear the new get-together with Lynch and MacLachlan. The atmosphere of that series has never been surpassed. Those small Northwestern towns with the eerie woods and swinging traffic lights. Stunning. Can't wait to finally get a hold of this beast.

The second series is still great. There are 4 or 5 bad episodes where it starts to veer into soap opera territory but Lynch comes back and gets it altogether for the ending.
Aug. 22, 2007, 9:12 a.m. CST

last DVD post had the Dr. Katz double dip, this time they're going to sell me the twin peaks episodes I already bought. While I want to see all the deleted scenes from Heroes, they can thank the fine folks who brought us nonsensical releases like Dr. Katz, Larry Sanders, and Twin Peaks for not getting this sale. I'm tired of getting burned.

...It's owned by New Line (and a French distributor), so there was really asymptotic-zero chance of it being included in this set. Too bad, 'cause it's one of Lynch's absolute best films, though I'm *almost* tempted to wait for HD on this one...almost. Ain't gonna happen, though. Must have this.

So we're not getting Fire Walk with Me in the set. That really fucking sucks... but is there any chance of that particular DVD being re-released in a nicer special edition? As it stands, the current DVD is pretty low quality. I want something nice to sit next to my new TP:Gold set.

those scenes in the Black Lodge are probably the best scenes ever on television. "Under the Sycamore Trees" is like a battle cry for all the weird shit that's about to happen. I love it. That's how you end a show. I hope the guys from "LOST" can come up with something almost as good.</p> At some point they'll put out everything from FWWM. I mean come on. Someone will get greedy one day and put it out spread over like 10 DVDs so they can charge us 150 bucks. And then a year later we can all buy it in the cheap bin at Walmart for $5. Don't worry.

MK2 is the company that would be releasing said "special edition" -but they don't dare release anything until the deleted scenes (coveted by many ravenous DL fans) are ready to go. They own the rights to them but since DL is still in the midst of IE marketing mayhem and - more importantly - because he is an anal bastard regarding new DVD transfers (where the fuck is Lost Highway???), it will be awhile I'm sure.

are - to put it simply - pop culture video dromes. The fact that the studio execs pushed David and Mark to solve "the mystery" before the season ended pretty much killed it for the mindless hordes of primetime sheeple. Meanwhile, the toll that this shift took on the creators was evident - essentially forcing them to resculpt their series so that the back-stories and sidebars of Twin Peaks revolved around a different phenomenon. But despite the disappointment of being coerced into revising the master TP plan - including the introduction of a horde of odd choices for guest directors/writers/etc. and the notable absense of the original creators themselves - the quality level of the show still surpassed 99% of anything aired on national television since. When you think about it, the foundation for a successful show was already in place. This macabre world of angels, devils, cherry pie and damn good coffee was somehow... enough. In the spirit of Tati, Wilder, and many other talented directors before him, DL managed to create a world that did not require a single drawn-out mystery to forge its primal allure. The finale - the final curtaincall if you will - therefore, was not very ironic. Basically a big 'fuck you' to the execs and lame-ass fan boys - yet, it also managed to be a beautiful send-off for those of us who remained enamored and followed him into the depths of FWWM...

is a mixed bag in my eyes-the Chester Desmond section is amazing as is the Bowie stuff....but I never really wanted to see what happened to Laura...it wasnt really necessary-it would be like having a Reservoir Dogs prequel showing the heist...you already have it in your head, and when you see it, its just different and doesnt add anything THAT substantial...first 45 minutes are brilliant though....as for nay sayers of the second season-dont listen to them. Its fantastic up until Coopers suspension-when he's in the chequered shirts, the show is still good, but verging on becoming...normal really. But as soon as Gordon Cole slaps the black suit back on Coop and he meets Annie it instantly becomes top notch again, and the series finale is worth the purchase of a DVD boxset alone.

...Good points, re: the Chet Desmond scenes, and in fact it was discussed whether or not to release a *second* prequel film consisting of more of the deleted FWWM footage...Lynch's early cut ran somewhere in the neighborhood of 5 hours, and there was a ton of footage involving the Twin Peaks townies that's never been seen before. Still thing the Chris Isaak stuff would've made its own unique, separate film...there's really no connection between those scenes and the Teresa Banks stuff until the very end, when we learn of Leland's involvement.

Why do there have to be "rules" for oddness? Pretty much everything Lynch does is oddness for the sake of oddness. Considering that 99% of the genre stuff that gets praised is just traditional storytelling wrapped up in some cutting-edge design to make it look "weird," I'll take Lynch's weirdness for what it's worth. All this "intrinsic weirdness" or whatever...who writes the rule book for what is Legit Odd and what is Ersatz Odd? When I watch a Lynch movie I think I'm in the hands of a guy who sees things in his own way--yes, he's not the first person to mix-and-match noir imagery with little kids in masks, but really, in a world of Star Trek remakes til death do us part...who cares if Lynch isn't following some film school teacher's "rules for originality"? Considering that most of the stuff out there is "humor for humor's sake" or "action for action's sake," I don't see the problem. Having said that, I've seen the show so there's no reason to watch it again. Season Two was dull until the final ep, which actually ended the series well.

Good call on the final ep. It really works. As for FWWM, it's the greatest film about child molestation ever made. Except for The Sixth Sense.
