Finally! Twin Peaks Definitive Edition on DVD

I was browsing around when I stumbled upon the coolest thing I have seen in quite awhile. Just out this week is the Twin Peaks Definitive Gold Box Edition DVD set. Featuring the entire quirky television series, this set is drenched with extras that a diehard fan like myself will be thrilled about. At a $99.99 sticker price and a $69.99 sale price, this is worth saving up pennies for. This is what I want for Christmas.

Here are the specs:

"DVD Features:

Any other Twin Peaks fans out there who have already got this or are planning on buying it?

Never seen the series, will soon though... Netflix!

Is it any good? I vaguely remember the series.

I spotted it as well. I didn't get into the show until it was almost over, so I have much catching up to do and tried to watch some of the reruns that have been on cable TV, but never have the time.

If the writer's strike goes on long then I might actually have the time to watch something like this.

Yo, Heidi!

I still think that the first four/five episodes of TP stand up against anything that's ever been shown on TV ...

It's funny that "Lynchian" is now an adjective that we can all use and understand. Though Lynch's style (and love for the awkward and strange) has been often imitated, it's never been equalled.

Nick, Twin Peaks is "crazy cool" at it's sinister finest. What started out as a relatively gritty premise turned into a surreal mind trip with a hook of "a damn fine cup of coffee" and the best pie around. If you get a chance, do check it out on Netflix. The mystery of who killed Laura Palmer is just too juicy for words!

Heidi Meeley said...

Lisa, I was thinking the same thing! Asking for Twin Peaks for Christmas is potentially a great salvation.

I really recommend Twin Peaks though I do caution that it gets pretty trippy!!

Heidi Meeley said...

Melchior, I agree. Lynch really did create something great in Twin Peaks. I like that you point out that his style has become a term used to describe this type of work. That is a wonderful point!

Twin Peaks is a fantastic journey that a person must take at least once in their life.
