I think we all suspected this was coming at some point. Not sure if there's any extra that could get me to buy it.

I’m a completist, so if there are any substantial new extras I’ll be suckered into this triple-dip. Too bad it looks like FWWM won’t be on there, which makes the set pretty incomplete in terms of a major part of the story (FWWM might have more shared DNA with TP:TR than the original series does).

LOL @ "again and again," you don't say!! The Entire Mystery took a mere two years to not be so entire, but at least this is what it says on the tin, at the cost of a non-clunky tagline. But hey, it could have been worse, "Twin Peaks Ultimate Filmless Collection"? :o

FWWM not being on it would have been way, way worse had it not had a Criterion release, which is honestly as definitive a version as you could ask for, anywho.

It remains to be seen just what kind of release this will be. Will it be well thought out with all new extras or will it be a quick repackaging of previously released material designed to make a quick buck over the holidays? I would hate for it to be the latter considering the 30th Anniversary is around the corner. It already has one strike against it by (apparently) not having FWWM on it. Although to be fair, 98% of the people buying a set like this probably has it already.

S3 on 4K would be nice.

You know, we've been so used to these massive undertaking type releases I never even considered ... it could just be a repackaging. I feel like 4K will be a while regardless--in its lifespan and at its current state of price and distrubution, it feels like too steep an undertaking for this much content.

I dunno, I prefer the Entire Mystery extras. The new interviews for the Criterion disc are nice, but it’s missing the two terrific 2014 documentaries, and perhaps most importantly and inexplicably, deletes the “Between Two Worlds” portion of the Ray/Sheryl/Grace interview. The Entire Mystery will remain indispensable if it’s the only source for those materials.

Ugh, I forgot they snipped that part out. It's essential alone just for Zabriskie's performance. I forgot about the new docs because my hatred of the old Newline doc totally overwhelms my memory.

In 50 years, despite no season 4, the definitive TP collection will be 6 releases in total!

I was going to mention this but you beat me to it. When I noticed this, my first thought was that Lynch for some reason didn't want the Between Two Worlds portion included. If that is the case, what would be the reason? Obviously he made it knowing that The Return would be coming soon, so what made him change his mind? Did he not like the way it turned out? Did his vision for The Return change and thus negate the sequence? Was it just a fun teaser that only exists in an alternate dimension from The Return? I doubt it would be that Criterion couldn't get the rights to that missing portion, I wouldn't think, anyway, but maybe it was some strange snafu since the actors are playing trademarked characters. But could that even be the case since Lynch controls the property?

And it is essential to me not just for the performances, but because it at one time seemed like the first and last new bit of Twin Peaks we'd ever receive, and I find that fascinating given that just two months later we'd learn that wasn't to be the case. The memory of that feeling of seeing that new bit as a standalone is quite a unique sensation when I access it.

If a Season 4 comes out, we'll have one more "The Ultimate Collection"

The facebook post that the Twin Peaks Archive twitter account linked as source to this news appears to have deleted mention of Twin Peaks and this set from the post here. Did you have a difference source, OP?

Maybe it’s partially owned by CBS as original scripted material, since it was produced by them for their set of the series? That’s the only thing I can think of, unless it’s just Lynch’s own preference/quirk as you say. Might be a question worth asking Charles De Lauzirika, if anyone has his ear on social media.

The only place it was mentioned was 'TV Shows on DVD'.

My guess is that the storylines hinted at in "Between Two Worlds" were mostly abandoned during the later stages of writing. Sarah's storyline still checks out, but the things Laura are saying about her current state don't fit with what we see in TPTR.

What I recall of it was vague enough that it checks out ok. She talks about meeting people with no names, etc. TPTR didn’t particularly utilize most of the stuff she talks about, but it also didn’t negate it. Maybe Lynch disagrees, but I find it hard to believe he’d scrap the actors’ incredible work just because it didn’t directly lead anywhere. Heck, a large portion of TPTR’s screentime is devoted to moments that don’t “go anywhere” in a traditional story sense.

EDIT: It’s also possible that, since we’ve heard that Lynch conceived the “in-character” portion on a whim pretty close to the shoot, perhaps he subsequently decided upon further reflection that he didn’t like the deuterocanonical “interview” aspect of it, with him playing himself interacting with the Palmers. Who can guess at Lynch’s quirks. I still think the most likely explanation is a rights thing with CBS, though.
