    I kept my original home-made VHS recording of the pilot episode around until the Gold Box came out, so I could stop the International version laserdisc before Laura's mom's vision and show the pilot episode version of that scene. I know, I know, but I'm pretty far gone.

    I'm just coming out of the weaker episodes (following the resolution of Who Killed Laura Palmer?) and I'll make a confession. I like the oft-mocked super strong Nadine story and anything with Richard Tremaine makes me laugh (even Little Nicky and especially the pine weasel incident). Before anyone calls the local laughing academy to have me taken away, I still can't stand the Civil War Ben story or the James/Evelyn story.

    I don't like the packaging either.

    I don't understand why the writers thought the James/Evelyn storyline was good enough? To me it is THE weakest storyline in the whole show. Why didn't they bring James' mother in, she had already been established as an alcoholic. Seems like a great way to create some drama and shake up the lives of a fair number of characters (James/Donna/Ed/Nadine).I don't mind Civil War Ben but it does come out the left field, even for Twin Peaks, why not create some drama with the aftermath of the mill fire or some other shady business dealings?

    And they had even established that James' mom is back in town in an earlier episode (when James sees Maddy and gets 'caught' by Donna) so they could have gone with that story.

    Maybe I'm revealing too much about myself but I have to give credit to that storyline for giving us Audrey dressed as a Southern belle.

    The lip sync is off in episode 4. It could have been the looping on the original print. But then I never had a presentation sharp or big enough to notice before. One of the gifts of HD. I notice this on a lot of shows now that were looped in scenes.

    I didn't notice that in episode 4. But I did notice that some shots throughout the series (I'm up to episode 8) are slightly out of focus -- the kind of thing you probably would never notice watching on a 20" CRT in standard definition from an over-the-air signal, but that screams out in HD on a larger screen. None of it ruined anything for me, but it was kinda fun to notice.

    This post is slightly off topic but Philadelphia is having some cool David Lynch stuff coming soon. There's an exhibit of his artwork from September to January and the Philadelphia Film Society is having a retrospective of his work in September and October. They're playing a movie each week (Eraserhead, Lost Highway, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, Inland Empire and Dune all on 35mm) and Lynch will be there for a conversation before Lost Highway. Then the city's annual film festival in October will play Blue Velvet, Wild At Heart, The Straight Story and Mulholland Drive. I've already got my tickets (I know I'm just bragging but give me a break, not a lot of cool stuff happens in Philadelphia :) ).

    I'm two hours from Philly. Sounds very tempting

    I watched Fire Walk With Me and it looks spectacular. Nice to not hear the dialogue in the Pink Room sequence anymore. :)

    Special features dropped from the S1 DVD set:

    Commentaries (episode 1: Duwayne Dunham, episode 2: Frank Byers, episode 3: Tina Rathborne, episode 4: Tim Hunter and Robert Engels, episode 5: Lesli Linka Glatter, episode 6: Caleb Deschanel and Harley Peyton, episode 7: Richard Hoover)
    Script Notes (episodes 1 to 7)
    Twin Peaks Directory: Season One [the video postcards are ported over though]

    Everything is ported over from the S2 DVD set. The loop with the Man From Another Place eating creamed corn isn't ported over from the Fire Walk With Me DVD.

    Additions to the Blu-ray from the DVD series set:
    discs 1 to 8: Recaps on episodes 1 to 7 and 9 to 28*
    Previews on episodes 1, 3 to 6, 8 to 22 and 24 to 26**

    disc 2:
    episode 7: the "To Be Continued..." graphic has been added back to the end of the episode

    Fire Walk With Me Photo Gallery
    Atmospherics
    Credits
    Easter eggs: The Bet [press Right from Moving Through Time] and The Fight [press Right from The Bet egg]

    * Episode 8 is the longest episode of the series so it probably didn't have a recap
    ** Episode 7 was the season finale so it didn't have a Preview for the next show, Episode 23 probably didn't have a Preview because the next episode wasn't on for about a month and a half, Episode 27 probably didn't have a Preview because the next episode wasn't for almost two months, Episode 28 didn't have a preview because #'s 28 and 29 aired back to back
    *** Now includes the Robin Lively interview segments that were left off of the S2 DVD

    To get into the real weird nitpicky stuff, the Spelling Entertainment Inc. logo is still missing from all the episodes so the end credit music fading down is still cut off. And the New Line Cinema logo on the beginning of Fire Walk With Me is now replaced with the MK2 logo.

    Sure thing, guys! I know that I'm a big enough nerd that in a year or two or five, I'll be wondering what was or wasn't ported over from the DVDs so hopefully I'll be able to dig this thread up again rather than going through all the discs.

    The information might have gotten lost in my lengthy post but there's Easter eggs on discs 1 and 10. Thanks to Dale MA for pointing out the ones on disc 1!

    The Easter Eggs on Disc 1 of the Blu-ray are all from the Anchor Bay Season 1 release. They were hidden as Easter Eggs on that set. Also one more Easter Egg from the Anchor Bay Season 1 release isn't on the Blu-ray set, but it wasn't really a "Twin Peaks" Easter Egg as much as it was a "Michael J. Anderson" Easter Egg, a clip from "Spector's Rock".

    His Twin Peaks scholarship is deserving of the highest Twin Peaks praise, as follows: "Travis and the owls are not what they seem!"

    I was about to purchase this on Amazon and saw reviews mentioning the lip sync issue on a few episodes and in Fire Walk With Me.
    Is this an authorizing issue with the blu-ray, or, as you suggest below, a dubbing issue present when the episode was made?

    I don't want to buy this if there is going to be a re-pressing to resolve this *IF* it is an authoring flaw.
