Re: free streaming at CBS website

Interesting. Kinda of a bad idea to promote the series w/o letting people see the pilot!

I googled "Twin Peaks" to find the wikipedia article because I needed to refresh my memory on something. One of the top links to appear was this: http://www.cbs.com/shows/twin_peaks I started watching a late 2nd season episode for free, apparently. (or maybe even got paid for it: an icon a...

Re: Sherilyn Fenn - new AV Club interview

Sherilyn Fenn had a cameo on CSI tonight. (I must state that I seldom watch this show, and I hadn't heard about it, so it was a lucky break.) I posted a video of her scenes here: Hurry up and download it if you want to, who knows how long it will last before it's matched. The episode had a plotline ...

maintaining a consistent look

"Well the Artisan set did have superb quality. That's why I was a little surprised when I heard they had remastered the first season again." As explained in the interview with the technical producers, they did it so that "the entire boxed set would be consistent" in terms of colo...

I'll see if I can ask around for the specifics on whether Twin Peaks was shot open matte. -B That will certainly be interesting. Film is costly...if a bunch of it was going to be thrown away, essentially, for the product as actually delivered to the underwriters (network), they would have at least ...

I noticed that as well. Too bad the series wasn't shot in 16x9. I remember back in 2000, Artisan did some tests to convert the Series to 16x9 since the Series was originally shot on film. However it didn't work out as early tests revealed lots of boom mics and dollies in the shots. Where did you ge...
