So it seems like a bunch of people have the set already (perhaps all outside the US?). Has there been any confirmation on the deleted scenes from the series? Anything as to if the picnic video is the original or filmed off the monitor for ep 1?

I remember when it came on and thought a few things. I knew when they came back at the end of March they were going to air the last six episodes.

More sad to realize though the following morning that it had just yanked the two remaining of the six... And that ABC was just going to burn it off in a Summer Monday movie of the week!


Do you mind if I ask you to explain a bit - Did you provide the promo to Jerry who in turn provided it to the producers behind the set? I'm confused how much anyone on this board had to do with some of the content on the blu-ray. Can someone elaborate for me? I'm so intrigued! :)

Japanese release with the t-shirt. Cool that it comes in a larger outer box:

Nope. I'll explain my minor involvement. I acted as an early adviser to Ken Ross with CBS about what I thought fans would like to see on the box set. They also were interested in rare video I have in my collection to include on the set. When they realized I wasn't just going to hand over the footage and talk terms later, they suddenly became uninterested :)

I provided a rare photo for one of the documentaries.

Most interestingly, I provided them with the contact information for a lady who directed ALL of the ABC promos for Twin Peaks. Amazingly, she kept all of the master broadcast tapes. How many of them they got from her, I don't know. She told me she had promos with Kimmy and Kyle that were never broadcast and were only used for executive meetings and events. Hopefully they got some cool stuff from her. Some of it may have degraded, I just don't know.

I am, you know, just a little excited.


I got my shipping notification on Sunday. I paid THE ARM and a leg because I didn't understand the purpose of pre-ordering (that it's discounted massively). So I only pre-ordered it a few weeks ago. Still, I'm glad to sponsor this project. My big problem is that I still don't have a blu-ray player. I need to get an external USB one for my imac w/ a large screen, and because it's a mac, I need software as well. If anyone knows about this stuff feel free to offer some advice on an economical solution. If anybody knows about good free blu-ray software for mac, I'd love to know. When all is said and done I'll have paid well over $200 for this experience (and it'll be worth it).

Can't wait to get this thing Monday or Tuesday...though without a player it'll be just a pretty box. I've just been too busy to research much in the last few weeks.

That's so awesome! Good for you to sticking with your guns about the footage. Side note completely but another friend of mine has an insane amount of old soap opera episodes and "General Hospital" approached her on YouTube about using some of her clips. It's so strange to me that networks don't keep better archives of their shows and have to reach out to online superfans to get footage. Just seems ass backwards and pathetic to me.

The lady that did the promos - did she also assemble the "Previously on" and "Next on" clips as well? I was wondering how they were all included on this set when a few of you guys were searching for a few of them awhile back.

Whoa, does the U.S. version of the set have that booklet the Japanese one has? I don't think it does. Jealous!

I'm probably the only person excited about these, but could anyone who has the set already enlighten me as to what the "Atmospherics" are? From a rather non-specific and short description available, they sound like my kind of thing. No worries if you haven't got round to it. I've only got until tomorrow night to wait!

EDIT: Never mind, just seen one on youtube. These are the kind of things i can just sit and watch looping forever. Cant wait to see what the others are like. :D

Let's hope CBS is proactive in addressing these audio issues.

Cancelled order from Amazon Canada. Set on hold at local hmv first thing in the morning for an even cheaper price. Thanks Amazon for nothing.

Hearing about this audio issue problem, I have decided to delay my purchase until I hear more about all of this.

I hope that whoever around here is best placed to get the attention of CBS can do so, pronto.

This is frightening me, as my set is no doubt speeding in my direction at this very moment. I'm wondering if I should even open it when it arrives.
