Sweet! I've always loved David Lynch's stuff because it was always so quirky and weird. This show was definitely no exception. Great to watch while enjoying a hot cup 'a Joe.

Showtime and shorter seasons are probably a good thing for it similar to American Horror Story.

I enjoyed it at first but it lost its luster in the 2nd and third seasons. It will be interesting to see.

3rd season of twin peaks (there isn't one, right?)? or Horror Story

Oops senior moment and too many shows but there was the movie which you could loosely call a 1 episode season 3 (which is a backstory).

This is fantastic news! I've waited a long time (25 years!) for this!

I've watched the series numerous times over the years but I'm re-watching thru the Blu-ray set right now. It's the first time I've sat down and watched all the episodes thru in order in quite a few years.

It does get a bit uneven but holds up amazingly well. As a teen when it was first one I was engulfed in the mystery and sci-fi aspects but this re-watch thru is the first time it's really hitting me how FUNNY the show is. Not just the obviously comic characters but some of the interactions between Truman and Cooper are really humorous.

So happy to hear Lynch is directing all of them too (although many of Twin Peaks' other directors were fantastic and they're names that I still keep an eye out for when watching shows today).

With everything happening with Marvel's Cinematic Universe (always a dream of mine as a kid), new Star Wars films in the pipe and now this it feels like somewhere a wish I made when I was 16 or so is suddenly coming true.

I'm in Fanboy heaven over this news!

One of my favorite memories is of watching the Who Killed Laura Palmer episode.

I was finishing up college, and was at a historical conference in Houston meeting the professor who would become my grad school adviser. My undergrad adviser (who arranged the whole thing) and a couple of his military historian buddies needed a fourth for a Medieval England military board game they were playing, so he invited me. The other two and I were Twin Peaks fans, so at 8:00 we all stopped playing and turned on the TV. My adviser was a very straight-laced, conservative (personally...well, politically too, but personally is what's relevant here) fellow who had never watched an episode.

I'm not sure what was more fun...watching the show, or watching him react to the show.

How does the HD conversion look? I'm assuming they spared no expense.

The first season was amazing. The second season, not so much.

Kinda like a super condensed version of Battlestar Galactica (fantastic setup before falling on it's face).

The difference is BG pretended to have a plan, and it fell apart when it turned out they didn't. TP had a plan, and it fell apart after the plan had been fulfilled but the show continued anyway (due, apparently, to network interference; Lynch & Frost didn't want to reveal the killer, but ABC insisted).

I have a hunch that both Twin Peaks and Lynch & Frost were made for a true limited series with a beginning, middle, and end. This should be sensational.

It's very good. I've watched my homemade VHS, store-bought VHS (two sets!) and DVD set a whole bunch of times and I can really tell the difference. (and I only have a 720p TV, I'm not a huge videophile)

The menus and extras make it worth it anyway. As a kid when I recorded it I cut out the "Previously On" and "Next On" parts and now I get to see those again

Unfortunately it was only filmed in 4x3 so you do get letterboxing but I'd much rather they preserve the aspect ratio than something else. Not like Lynch would have allowed anything but that anyway!

I think I read somewhere that TP is available on Neflix and Hulu...

It's definately on Netflix. Wonder if it's gonna stay there or get pulled soon?

Showtime has said they will rerun the episodes before the new season.

The instant watch version is in HD -- at least it was the last time I checked.

You said all of this in reference to a question about the HD "conversion" release.

You speak of VHS and DVD, neither of which is High Def.

Also, if a show was done in 4x3, it can't be letterboxed. Letterboxing is when a widescreen show is displayed on an old 4x3 screen, and black bars fill in the top and bottom of the screen where the widescreen video won't reach.

I have a feeling you don't understand this end of the discussion.

Showtime has said they will rerun the episodes before the new season.
The third (or 4th? if you count the movie as a 3rd) season on Showtime won't air until 2016. I have a feeling if they run the original episodes (and the movie?) it won't be until late next year or early 2016.

I'm just wondering if they'll finally let us know what happened to Kyle MacLaughlin's Dale Cooper character. (The movie, if memory serves, was a prequel, so it didn't address his fate shown in the cliffhanger.)

A good many reports from the internet suggest he will be involved in the new show, so it's likely... Unless they get mean and DON'T explain exactly what happened, and still leave people guessing...which I wouldn't be suprised by.

He was making a point that his Blu-ray copy looks much better than his old VHS and DVD copies.

I understood what he meant, which is that the HD copy has black bars on the left and right when viewed on an HD TV (16:9).

For me, Twin Peaks was the Lost of it's time. I was totally hooked by the premiere, and from then on watched eagerly week-to-week.

The technical term for that is pillar-boxed, I believe.

+1. I sure wish TCF had been around then. Those would have been some epic discussion threads. I bet we could have sustained ep threads rather than season threads!

I watched the first 3 episodes of this show over the weekend on Netflix. I have never seen a minute of it before. It is pretty odd show for sure. I saw this dream scenario yesterday with this short dude dancing in a red room. I had to google the scene after.

I'm not sure that I'll watch all these older episodes. I think there are only 30 or so. I can probably get it done.

I rewatched the first 4 this weekend. Man, it brings back memories. It does seem a little cheesier than when I first saw it. But I always liked how they drove home the atmosphere with the nearly constant soundtrack running the mood up and down with that jazzy and odd music.

It's funny, this sure would have been the Lost of its time, had there been an internet and message boards for people to dissect the episodes on. But also, I probably would have held the plot to a higher standard than I did at the time when I just sort of went with the weirdness...

I watched the first few episodes of Miami Vice recently, and was shocked at how poorly it had aged. At the time, it seemed like the future come to life, but today it looks more like 70s cop shows than modern shows.

I have the blu-rays of Twin Peaks, but I'm a little nervous about watching it for that very reason...
