Just found this story on Lynchnet.com Figured it was worth starting a new thread.
I could care less if the US version ever comes out. I'll be getting the Region 3 NTSC Korean release from Paramount in September to match my Season 1 with the remastered pilot. This is yet another example of how limiting yourself to region 1 is just plain foolish.
Agree on that Jeff... My Season One the NTSC out of Japan with the remastered pilot also.... Here's being glad that I still have claim to my season 2 laserdiscs for the time being.. Dugger
Yeah, the Japanese set is very nice. It used to be real pricey though. I haven't checked to see if it has been repriced or not. I wish I would've kept my laserdiscs. Oh, well. September will be here sooner than we think. Jeff
Nice article, except Warner Bros owns the TP pilot, not Paramount. What we posted awhile ago about Season 1 not selling enough is still correct. It sold well enough to make a profit, but not well enough that they could justify paying Paramount for access to the masters to do season 2. Looking at this purely from a business standpoint, I don't blame Paramount for not letting Artisan have access to the masters. Hollywood is all about making money, and if Artisan starts releasing some of these shows on DVD it's unlikely that Paramount could release them later on. Gord
Wow. I'm glad I went region-free, so I have the opportunity to buy them in Sept 04, but that's pretty crappy treatment of a fanbase by Paramount. They know people have been salivating for Season 2 for a long time now. I'm guessing Artisan was able to get Season 1 remastered and released before Paramount realized what they had?
Living in Region 2 land I can't complain, especially over the price. Season 1 + pilot is now available from Play.com for £17.99 (less than $30) for any undecided about buying the amazing first set. This is the english PAL version though for those who need NTSC.
Where do you US guys get your non-region 1 discs?
Jeff- Thanks for the link! EVERYONE WHO USES THE ABOVE LINK: If you haven't seen S2 or the movie, do NOT read the synopsis! What were they thinking?!? Just a friendly service announcement.
Jeff does it definately include the pilot because on their website it states "This four-disc set contains the first season's seven episodes, minus, curiously, the series pilot. Newcomers will be scratching their heads over the "Previously on Twin Peaks" prologue, but an accompanying booklet sums up the story" ? Thanks, Duncan
Yes, it does. Disc 1 is only the Pilot and Ep 1.
That description is a mess. If you click on the jacket it will show you the back where it clearly states the pilot is there. Would I really say the pilot looks stunning if it wasn't there? Twin Peaks Season 1 Korean NTSC Review Jeff
Do you think Paramount will re-release Season 1 with the Pilot after September '05 also?
Wow, that's just wonderful. Is the team putting together the non-region one release of season two the same as the one responsible for season one? I mean, it would really suck if if the "look and feel" between these two releases are inconsistent. It may not bother others, but it would certainly bother me. [sarcasm] Also, I would like to extend a sincere thank you to whoever it was with the wonderful lack of foresight to pass on retaining a quality property. We the fans, with our incomplete sets, are indebted to you forever. Good show! [/sarcasm]
I know what you are saying David about the region situation. I have a region free player and that is for me the best solution. If for some reason, R1 turns out to be a better version in two years time, I will double dip. I have done this in the past and will continue to do so.
As abysmal as Artisan is usually, the Twin Peaks S1 set is one of the finest releases ever. I can't imagine that given the bad blood they'll license the extras to Paramount, so it's probably worth going for, and hope that Paramount releases the pilot as a standalone disc. If not, the crappy import will do OK for me.
