    I just received my Pilot episode today.

    It was shipped from Hong Kong.

    The cover art is thin panels of the cast over a

    chess board. TWIN PEAKS overlayes in blue.

    The back of the box has serial #717985 610174

    In addition to the description of content, the

    back cover has the Republic Pictures logo, a

    CATALYSTIC LOGIC water seal, and specs that this

    is an ALL REGION disc.

    Do I have the right disc? Is this the unedited

    version I should have?

    My DVD player is out for modifications so I can't

    look at this right now. A preview on overall video

    and audio quality would be appreciated by someone

    that owns the same copy.

    That's the one I have.

    As someone mentioned elsewhere, this appears to have been mastered from film and a PAL source. (Yes, it's NTSC, but it has a very slight half-tone speed-up in pitch). You can tell it's film because there are occasional film-like artifacts in the picture...nothing distracting, but definitely film.

    Picture and sound quality is good--a far cry better than my old VHS tape of the original broadcast.

    I have not seen the remaining shows from the box set yet, so I can't compare to that. But this disc is fine...and considering the alternative--i.e., not seeing it at all--it's great!
