Just started series 1 blue ray and I forgot how brilliant the box set looks and the detail put into it.

Nearly at the end of series 1 . I've seen it before but I forgot a little how bloody good it is and how random and brilliant the story was,it was very ahead of its time as nothing like that had been on TV before.

Just finished season 2.

....What was that? :dread:

Does that mean Audrey/Pete are dead or are they in the castlist of returning characters? wtf was going on with that black lodge. I kind of get why Alan Wake didn't make any sense if they were using Twin Peaks as their biggest influence :slol:

I really need to get around to this soon.

I saw this pic in the GAF thread. Is it accurate to how things go?

I'll still watch them all regardless, but there might be some fast forwarding involved.

So I've tried so hard to get into this but having had to watch the pilot multiple times, which has to be up there with one of the slowest episodes in human history, how much does it pick up compared to the pilot?

I have been re-watching the show for the first time since it originally aired. I must be into the red episodes, because the quality has dropped and I'm losing interest, after loving season 1 and the start of season 2.

If you didn't enjoy the pilot you're quite possibly insane as it is one of the best episodes of anything ever.

Madness, I thought the first episode of The Wire was slow but this takes the biscuit.

Overly long too.

That picture is pretty accurate - the dip in quality in season two is a bit of a slog but it's all worth watching without skipping or else the really out-there stuff will make even less sense than it does anyway.
Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.

That all sounds about right, the show overall is quite strange in places which for me is something i just love about it. The part about Lynch leaving the show midway through season 2 is also true but trust me watch all of it, then watch 'Fire Walk With Me' which is a prequel and adds a lot more.

I've just finished episode 2-13

I loved the series. Hated the film - I'd skip it.

That overly long club scene with the obnoxious sound is one of the worst things I've ever seen.

I need to jump back into this, a friend lent me their boxsets at uni and basically eating breakfast before watching twin peaks for ages on an xbox and eventually going to studio was a staple for a while. I loved it. It started getting really strawberry floating weird with ufos and stuff, I can't remember why I stopped watching, I may even have finished it and just can't remember. Can anyone pm me some good links?
