    Thats more like it. Keep in mind, however, that the original Laserdiscs were well over $100 per box when they came out originally. So comparatively, this is a bargain. [​IMG]

    Yah-hoo!!!!! Now I just hope this sells well enough that they do the second season as well.
    It should be noted that they were never able to get the licensing stuff together, so this DOES NOT include the pilot episode. That is still available as a Hong Kong import (yes, legit) from http://www.lasersedge.com/movie/23634/. With thoughts that this might happen, I picked up the pilot last month. The quality is sub-standard, but it's better than nothing. Hopefully the quality of Season One release will be better than the pilot import.

    Big Props to Steve for posting the Laser's Edge link. I thought the pilot was the same as the WB LD I own that has the European "wrap-up" ending, but was stunned to see that it was the acutal pilot when I watched it at a friend's.
    Just made the purchase tonight.

    Surely Season 1 was more than 7 episodes? Something's not quite right here.

    List price at Amazon is $59.98, lesss 25% = $44.99.
    List price at CDNOW is $39.98 less 30% = $27.99.
    Someone goofed. Let's hope it's Amazon!

    First series was definitely 8 episodes over her ein the UK (including the pilot). It ends with the cliff hanger. I remember at the time we were told it might be pulled in the U.S. and were all really irritated but it came back. I seem to remember the second series seemed really long but it was probably only 22 weeks. I think that was the first time I'd experienced an American series length. Over here 6 episodes is still pretty traditional for a series. Otherwise it's just a weekly soap.

    I ordered via CDNow, but I wonder if that price will hold. It seems low for 3 DVDs. Will they be bound by it if they screwed up?
    How is CD Now's service? Good, fair, poor? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yes, season two had 22 episodes by contrast!
    I'm sure Amazon are just playing it safe, I'm sure it will come down in price as the release date gets nearer!

    Now that i have thought about it more it should come down in price. In contrast take the x-files sets for example. They are right around $100 when they were available for pre-order 24 episodes give or take one or two. Season One of Peaks has only seven, so anywhere from $30 to $35 would be a fair price if cheaper than that you won't get any complaints from me. But you know what i love this series so much id prolly buy it at any price and maybe thats what artisan is thinking here that they have a product that is only gonna appeal really to a small amount of people. So possibly the higher price would garuntee us season two.
    Thanks to Everyone who replied [​IMG]

    I'm definitely looking forward to these DVDs!!! The video quality on the EP VHS version is terrible.

    I'm with you, Gregory. I have 'em, but the quality is just terrible. I'm assuming that Artisan will release Season Two sometime next year, but given that Artisan has the worst track record with catalog titles, I'm crossing my fingers.

    "Season 1" is a bit of a misnomer. It was originally a mini-series, which is why there were 7 episodes + 1 pilot.

    Season One was only 7 episodes (not counting the pilot) because the show premiered mid-season--April, I think. The following September (1990) was the start of Season Two, which consisted of 22 episodes.
    Anybody know what the packaging is going to be like? How many discs? How many epsidodes per disc? Extras and Lynch's involvement?

    Nope, it was a mini-series that was originally intended to conclude in the 7th episode. Because of the huge popularity, it was extended into a regular series and instead of resolving the murder at the end of the mini-series, it was left as a cliffhanger.
