The packaging is nicely done and good quality. However I prefer practical packaging and it takes a little effort to flip through and access the discs. There isn't a booklet listing all of the disc contents, which is a bit frustrating as you have to insert a disc to see which special features it contains. This is nitpicking because it looks very good and there is a neat little surprise after you flip through all of the discs.
HD UPGRADE QUALITY
All episodes of the TV show, including both versions of the pilot, have been meticulously scanned and remastered from the original negatives. People seem to forget that this show was finished in 1990 TV resolution. Thankfully it was shot on film and those film negatives could be used to create HD masters. It took considerable work and expense to upgrade these episodes to HD quality and DTS sound. While the Gold Box versions looked great, these transfers are much better, with 3 times the sharpness and more accurate and striking color. I am watching on a 100" screen and seeing textures and details I never noticed on the DVD. There is a much greater depth which pulls you even deeper into the world of Twin Peaks. Twin Peaks was the first show to be shot in a cinematic style, and it pays off big time on blu-ray. The shows are presented in their original 4x3 aspect ratio.
I have noticed some shots in the first few episodes which were clearly not upgraded to HD, probably because they were part of a special effect. For example, when Laura's mom imagines Donna's face turning into Laura.Read more ›
'TWIN PEAKS' was originally conceived as a crime-drama-mystery, but became so much more, including an instant cultural phenomena after it's debut on the ABC Network on April 8, 1990. Created by cult director David Lynch (THE ELEPHANT MAN, BLUE VELVET, MULHOLLAND DRIVE) and writer/producer Mark Frost (HILL STREET BLUES, FANTASTIC FOUR), the series started off strong, due to a successful publicity campaign and people's curiosity to see how David Lynch's aesthetic would translate to network TV. The two-hour pilot, which aired on a Sunday, was seen by a third of the TV viewing audience and the following seven episodes of the first season benefited greatly from "the water cooler effect," people discussing it at work the next day. Unfortunately ABC began to broadcast the following episodes on Thursday nights, in competition with NBC's strong "must-see TV" line-up. Viewership began to drop, but when the last episode of the first series was broadcast on a Wednesday at 10pm, the ratings improved. The second season originally did OK, but the domino-effect of ABC constantly shuffling it's time-slot, numerous preemptions caused by the Gulf War and viewership disinterest after the main plot, the murder of Laura Palmer, was solved halfway through, resulted in the series' cancellation. The show however lived on in reruns (Bravo), home video (VHS, LaserDisc, DVD & Blu-ray) and various homages (THE SIMPSONS, SNL, PSYCH), eventually becoming a pop-culture touchstone.Read more ›
Unfortunately, I am among the many people who are experiencing serious audio syncing problems. The "Missing Pieces" are wayyy out of whack, and many people are also reporting audio issues with some episodes and with Fire Walk With Me. People with all sorts of BluRay players are reporting major problems in these areas. For an item that is so expensive and is priced so because of its top-quality sound and images, this is completely unacceptable.
Many of us are trying to reach out to CBS Home Entertainment through social media, but we've yet to hear about an exchange where we'll be given working disks. I would imagine we will hear something about this, but if not, I'll be returning this for a full refund. That would be a bummer considering how much I was looking forward to owning this, but to pay so much for such a flawed product would be insane.
More importantly, it includes the feature film which served as both a prequel and an epilogue to the series, "Fire walk with me", plus 90 minutes of deleted and alternate scenes, never seen before, all fully scanned and remastered from the original negatives.The diligence exhibited in pretty much all aspects of the box is impressive. It surely helped the fact that the show was shot on film, and so these films were used in order to create HD masters. It clearly must have taken incredible effort and expense in order to upgrade the material to HD quality and DTS sound. The sharpness is striking, and the amount of details that can be noticed is tremendous, even on the deleted scenes which are fully finished with flawless picture and crystal sound. This greater depth is pretty impressive, almost giving the feeling of watching the show anew.
On initial copies of the box set, on some occasions the sound appeared to be slightly out of sync (most notably on some deleted scenes) which was admittedly distracting.Read more ›
