“I like my coffee black, like midnight on a moonless night.” – Special Agent Dale Cooper
I was recently informed by my brother that season two of Twin Peaks, on DVD, is now available for purchase — and actually has been since April of this year. Way back in ye olde 1990s I owned both seasons of the show, on VHS. Those copies have long since disintegrated, and I had admittedly (six long years after the release of the first season) given up hope that season II would ever see the light of day. Well, it has.
Like season one, this installment again features the Log Lady episode introductions (originally filmed for the Bravo network’s syndication of the series), bonus material, and, most importantly, a cleaned up look that was lost in the VHS adaptation.
News of season two has reinvested my interest (read: geekery) in the series and its peripherals, which has led me to dig out David Lynch’s Fire Walk With Me (the feature length ‘post’ prequel to the series) and its accompanying soundtrack. Time to return to the black lodge.
Update: Announced yesterday was the news that BOTH seasons (with extras) will now be available for purchase together in the new Twin Peaks Definitive Gold Box Edition. Thanks to an AD reader for the tip.
