    EzyDVD shows this for release in February by Paramount but no details to go with it. Does anyone know if it will include the pilot, like (I think) the German version? And ths DTS tracks available on the Region 1?

    I have the Region 1 set and _love_ it, but I want that pilot, preferably with a quality video and audio transfer.

    Thanks,

    Paul

    Well the R4 versions are usually the same as the R2 version, and the R2 version has the pilot on, though the video quality is not as good as the rest of the series (it looks slightly washed out compared to the other episodes)

    No DTS track on the R2 version though

    This has been released NTSC in Japan.

    This set is the same as the UK version including the pilot.

    Which is a good site for ordering from Korea, for that matter, is there a site with lists of good internet DVD vendors from around the world, I would love that!

    Thanks for any info.

    So far, this is the only site I've seen carrying the Twin Peaks box from Paramount. I normally deal with DVD Asian or Mr. Kwang but they don't seem to be carrying this set.

    Check it out the specs for the Region 4 set:
    http://www.ezydvd.com.au/item.zml/222193
    Dolby Digital 2.0!! If that isn't a typo then it is a disgrace!
    Just the fact that a DTS 5.1 track exists for these episodes and all we get is a stereo track sucks bigtime. I would have instantly bought this set with the Dolby Digital 5.1.
    Not happy, Paramount, get your act together. What was an "assured sale" is now a "not on your life".
    What an insult.

    I saw a note at www.thedigitalbits.com indicating that Paramount will rerelease this title (including the pilot) when the rights revert to it near the end of 2005.
