    I've learned to hold my enthusiasm. If there is ever an "official" press release, then I'll let my banana dance again.

    Fire Walk With Me is an okay film, but at the time it was extremely disappointing. The series had already ended in a cliff hanger, but what we got treated to instead of concluding the story in a satifying manner was a prequel that nobody ever really needed to see because it was all already explained in the TV series. I have very little interest in revisiting any regularly than every decade or so.

    From what I read, Fire Walk With Me was planned as a first part in a film series and that the follow-up film would have picked up where the series left off but the failure of Fire Walk With Me prevented any more Twin Peak films from coming to fruition.

    Looking forward to the deleted scenes. :D

    Very cool supplemental material. Nice of the studio and Lynch to finally include for fans.

    I love FWWM. It was my introduction to Twin Peaks. The series started when I was still in high school and my parents had their own stuff to watch on Sunday nights, so I never saw the show even though I adored both BLUE VELVET and WILD AT HEART.

    When FWWM came out I went to see it and was so into the moment that I almost threw up. :D It was very intense and loud and really sucked me in.

    90 minutes of footage cut from FWWM--I never thought this day would come.

    Now, having said that...weren't there 3 hrs. cut from this? If they're smart, they'll release the other 90 minutes years from now...and I'll be there to fork over another $100 for that too.

    Torn on this.

    Never saw the show. It's streaming in HD on Amazon Prime and my Vizio has the Amazon app to play it. I started to watch the pilot but was interrupted and couldn't finish it. I liked what I saw.

    I'm almost blind bought the lasers, which would have easily cost $100 even today, so why am I reluctant to pull the trigger on the blu set? I guess my only reasoning is the replay value, which will likely be slim to none.

    I think the bonus features and Fire Walk With Me sells me on the set. IMO there is replay value because I always notice something different watching Lynch.

    I wish Lynch had integrated some/most/all of the 90 minutes into a new cut of the film, then gave us the leftovers as bonus footage instead of just presenting us with 90 minutes of bonus footage.

    I loved the show when it was originally on and rewatched the tapes we recorded through the mid 90s. I then gave it a rest for about 15 years and when I revisited it I didn't feel that it aged terribly well. Some parts are remain extremely effective and I love the quirkiness of the characters, but the more soap opera aspects (in particular the ones that focus on James Hurley) have become rather tedious to sit through.

    It's funny, but watching David Lynch movies really makes me realize how my tastes have changed since high school. I still appreciate most of the movies and music that I did then on some level (if anything I'm less snobby), but David Lynch was a veritable God to me and now he simply doesn't do much of anything for me any more. Oh well.

    Box set release of the decade for me.

    I bought the gold dvd box set blindly and love the show. The show is still getting new fans so I wouldn't call it too dated. The show still influences tv shows to this day. I already put my pre-order in for the blu-ray boxset. I cannot wait to watch this show again! And so excited for the special features.

    Ah yes, when Lara Flynn Boyle was still alive and human. Definitely buying this despite the shitty box art. Hope they wise up and change it before the release though.

    This makes me very sad to hear. As far as the TV show goes, I have always felt that it was over-rated and over-exposed...but his films have always made me feel so deeply and in such a unique way that few others do. I think that a lot of people (not necessarily you) judge him because of TP. I think that a lot of people brush him off as "just another weirdo" when there is so much more to his work.

    I used to be a huge fan of this show and bought the Gold Box Edition back when it came out. I just realized I never actually got around to watching any of the DVDs though, so I'll probably hold off on picking up the Blu ray set. I've still got the original first season box set and the import DVD of the pilot as well too; maybe no triple-dip for me.
