    If a disc were to come out with nothing but the deleted scenes of Fire Walk With Me and was priced at the $10.00 to $15.00 range would you buy it? I was talking to a person that manages a DVD mastering company and we were on the subject of DVD's you can't get here in the States like some of the TV sitcoms. So it got me curious about just a deleted scenes disc I was wondering if it would be profitable.

    I think so. There are quite a few VERY devoted Peaks fans...I mean how many other TV shows that have been off the air for ten years have a glossy professional magazine devoted to them (Wrapped in Plastic)? I would definitely buy it.

    I can think of 5-10 people alone not including people on this forum that would buy a disc like this.

    Count me in with a big "hell yes!"

    I'm buying the MK2 release when comes out, if it does indeed include the deleted scenes, and that'll cost me more than $10 to $15.

    I spoke with the folks at dugpa.com, who have hard data to support that a release of this kind would turn a profit.
    I for one would definately buy it, as I know several others that would buy it as well.

    I'd buy it in a heartbeat!

    I haven't even seen the second season of Twin Peaks -not to mention Fire Walk with Me- but I know I'll want those deleted scenes once I've seen everything.

    I would certainly buy a disc of Twin Peaks deleted scenes. But then I just spent almost $50 on a disc filled with David Lynch's short films.

    I think the key selling point of such a disc is that Lynch wants to prepare the scenes as mini Twin Peaks episodes. I'd imagine this wouldn't be your run-of-the-mill poorly presented collection of 30 second snippets excised from the film.

    Lynch wants to spend time and money to present these scenes. If they are released on disc as he envisions, I'm sure they will sell quite well independent of the feature.

    I'd love it if Lynch provided brief introductions to the scenes, as he has done with the short films disc.
