    Hey folks, there is an import DVD site that has the Twin Peaks pilot for sale.
    http://pokerindustries.com/
    They have lots of HK and UK DVD's, including Ring 1+2, Evil Dead Trap 1+2, George A. Romero's Bruiser and an excellent danish flick called Body Switch! None of these are bootlegs, therefore I highly doubt that the Twin Peaks pilot is a bootleg disc.

    Enjoy!

    I got my TP pilot from them (via an eBay auction.) Quick shipping. Good service.

    Greg,
    Can you tell us about the audio and video quality.
    I would like to buy one if the quality is more than ok.
    Thanks

    I disagree on the subpar comment. This DVD is the best this pilot has EVER looked, including the laserdisc with the European ending. Also, I would run to get this before it disappears as who knows when it will, if ever, be released in this country.

    I have to agree with Richard. This DVD looks much better than the laserdisc and is the best it has ever looked. I'm sure the Artisan DVDs will look even better with all new digital transfers. I'm just thrilled to have the unaltered pilot on a nice-looking DVD.

    I wouldn't say it's subpar. I'll say it's just "par". [​IMG] It's just not reference quality. I had a few sound dropouts and noticed what I guess is PAL -> NTSC speedup. But it's most certainly watchable.

    Let's put it this way...
    If you do NOT pick it up..... You'll be kicking yourself when the series hits dvd without the pilot.
    For 20.00, you can NOT go wrong.

    Here's a simple question I feel a little silly asking... Is the dvd available to buy through that link? I see the item description and all but I don't see anything like a BUY button.

    You can get the DVD A LOT cheaper from DVDShelf.com and HKFlix.com. No need to pay the $40 that Poker and Scarecrow want for the DVD.

    Thanks All,
    Got a better deal on eBay.
    Had to order it just to hear that moody theme song!

    I put mine on eBay for $15. But it now for $20. Got it in today and I prefer the laserdisc, as it is not fake surround.

    Is this disc PAL or NTSC? Since it's a television show and not film, how does this affect the differing framerates between the two formats?

    I believe this disc is NTSC, since Poker clearly states if a disc is PAL, which is not the case here. Can't help you more than that, sorry!

    It's NTSC, converted from a PAL source. Thus, there are some problems with speedup.
    Oh yeah, the subtitles. If you require English subtitles, I feel for you. I switched them on once or twice. They're horrible. Not even close in many cases.

    Sound is pretty bad. Shrill and metallic, like in a tin can. Damn Asian remixes. [​IMG] Looks like VCD on my 47" Panasonic. Looks "OK" on my 27" Sony. PAL speedup is instantly audible. Sold mine on eBay already.
