Any new news on season 2?
Nope. If someone knew ANYthing, it would be splashed all over these pages!
Dugpa.com stated yesterday that "As far as a US release, my gut instincts tells me we will hear something in the coming months. Artisan is keeping very tight lipped about the release and all they have said is that it is still in talks." This seems to echo what Gord and I published 3 months ago! Ah, well...they say no news is good news.
The waiting pissed me off so much that I've started picking up the S2 LD sets. A little pricey, but pretty good quality for older LDs.
What a pain. I'd like to see the second season come out soon.
Season 2 is supposed to be hitting Europe in September/October timeframe.
I really wish someone other than Artisan was handling this release, since their timeframe for getting stuff out seems to be pretty spotty at best. Been more than a year since season one, and you'd think that they'd want to get it out there before interest waned. At this point though, all I can really hope for is that S2 gets released in one big box all at once, rather than have to drag it out for another year and a half waiting for the second half of the season.
What concerns me more about Artisan is their poor track record for quality. However, given their splendid rendition of Season 1, I'm hopeful that they will keep that up for Season 2.
There was a post on alt.movies.david-lynch today that says a source within Artisan has confirmed that Artisan has no plans to release Season 2.
This really sucks major ass. We need to start a petition or something.
I take anything read on usenet with a grain of salt; however, I'll plan on preordering the Region 2 set as soon as it's available - just in case this is true.
If and when season two does arrive, I hope it coincides with a substantial price drop on season one. I will not be buying any Twin Peaks at 2 to 3 times what other shows are going for.
Hmm, that pricing hasn't made its way up to Canada, where the first set is still $85.
Amen to that.
...and since Paramount has the R1 rights to the Pilot, hopefully we'll see a nice release of that sometime in the future.
What is artisan smoking? Am I missing something here, or didn't Season 1 sell a whole lot of copies? This is exactly what I've been worried about with TV on DVD all along. I really hope that this isn't true...
If this is indeed the case -- and if it is, I'm going to raise a ruckus the likes of which haven't been heard in some time -- here are the contacts I found online:
I believe I'm right in thinking that the UK Season 1 box has the "US" Pilot in, aren't I? While I'd be tempted to import for the usual NTSC/PAL differences, getting the pilot is sufficiently vital that I wouldn't bother without it.
I've gotten a few e-mails about this yesterday, and I'm looking into it. Let you know as soon as I hear something.
Keep in mind that this is EXACTLY like the rumor over this release that was spread last November, when I was told that the release was 'still in the talks' after asking about it.
It's not looking good. Stay tuned.
