A really good cup of coffee

by Dr. Orpheus on 4/27/2007

In a word: FINALLY! The whole Disney (ABC) vs. VIACOM (CBS) vs. Lynch (David) fiasco that kept "Season Two" off the shelves for some four years AFTER "Season One" was released on DVD has mercifully ended. I won't bore readers with a tacky technical analysis of the finished product, because thee and me both know we would have bought this set even if Paramount had put it out on masking tape and we had to view it backlit using a candle. That minor consideration of fan psychosis aside, the discs do look and sound pretty damn good. Unlike Season One, however, this long-overdue set was produced sans the former's dts soundtrack; relying instead on a pretty crisp Dolby Digital surround mix that serves up the show's theme -- and we all know it's what put you in "that" place -- and admittedly sparse effects with authority. And, standard-def or not, Lynch's gorgeous camera work remains a slap in the celluloid face of those who subscribe to shooting everything like it was filmed under bluish fluorescent lights ("MatrixVision") or in constant shadow ("X-FilesVision"). If you're reading this review and you're unfamiliar with the series itself, please, I beg you, do NOT go rent the horrible overseas version of the "Twin Peaks" movie (a hurry-up-and-finish-it-in-case-you're-cancelled-so-ABC-can-recoup-its-money special available on VHS) or the series' actual, David Lynch directed (and just plain slick) "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me" prequel, as both will divulge *waaay* too much about a ride that should only be taken from beginning to end (and then back to the beginning, again) in measured doses. Remember, this is the television series that is STILL referenced by every up-and-coming "oddball" series seen on television. The phrase "Twin Peaksesque" exists because it actually means something to be so original that Hollywood, an industry that has had perhaps four original ideas in the past two decades, has yet to figure out the allure of not insulting its audience's intelligence.

Quotes
Brett Cullum, DVD Verdict ...one of the most cinematic series ever created with its own darkly funny tone that has never been duplicated.
Dread Central ...change[d] television forever and was the most remarkable television show since probably "The Prisoner" in the sixties.
Pam Grady, Reel.com ...as vital as it was when it was brand new...the rare show that does not date...the picture remains fresh. It is a beautiful thing.
