    If it's a legal dispute, how would a petition help?

    Finally someone started a petition. If you haven't seen season 2 before I suggest you don't read the petition page's list of wanted features on the discs. It has a spoiler concerning the killer.

    Has anyone informed peakers at Twin Peaks Gazette?

    May I also raise questions about the purpose
    of this petition.

    It seems to me that studio(s) are very interested
    in releasing this title, but there are legal issues
    that are holding up the Season Two release. If this
    is the case, how would a petition help?

    I agree entirely that this is very much on the minds of the people involved, and they all DO want to put this out. The title is not simply being ignored or forgotten; that's been indicated all along.

    If a petition drive makes you feel like you are doing something, then go for it. But I don't think it will make an impact on the situation, in all honesty.

    From what I've heard, there is more at stake in this situation than Twin Peaks Season 2. But I don't have enough information to discuss it (Ron probably knows lots more than I do), and I think that a public discussion about it would probably slow down the release process even further.

    I post at the Gazette, and I think a lot of people would be interested (just to, as was stated earlier, "do something"), which is why I have qualms about bringing the petition to their attention. I'm going to wait until 2004 until I do any signing, though I am a fanatic about the show. If they haven't cleared up this legal mumbo-jumbo by then, I'll sign a petition just to let them know that I'm interested and concerned. Its just a little soon ater these rights issues started to make demands.

    I'll tell you who really has been hurt the
    most by the witholding of Twin Peaks Season 2....

    Consumers like myself.

    I was never a huge David Lynch fan. For this
    reason, I wasn't exactly looking forward to
    reviewing Twin Peaks season One upon
    its release two years ago. The rest is history...

    I was surprisingly sucked into the show. Thought
    it was one of the most innovative shows I had ever
    seen, and by the time I had finished watching the
    entire first season, I was ready for more!

    But after two years of waiting for the second
    season to be released (and hearing about all
    the legal BS), I could really care less about
    the release. I have forgotten the entire first
    season. In order to even remotely anticipate
    the arrival of a second season, I would have to
    go back and watch the first all over again.

    It's a shame that people like myself who got
    hooked on the show 2 years ago with the original
    boxed set release have now forgotten most of
    everything that has happened, and are forced to
    rewatch it all in the event of a Season 2 release.

    I think in the very least it will remind these Companies that there is demand. I would have waited to do a petition, but it HAS been 2 years since the release of Season 1.

    It's not clear to me how Paramount thinks that they own the rights, but all they have to do is wait for Artisan's license to expire (the Republic catalog license is IIRC only a five-year license, and it's got to be over half done already) and there they are.

    My wife keeps asking me when this is coming out. Like Ron, she was hooked after season one.

    She wants to watch FWWM too but I won't let her until she sees season two.
