With Twin Peaks
returning as a new limited series in 2017 (on the CBS-owned Showtime cable channel), CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution are this week announcing the September 20th
Blu-ray release of a 9-disc set with the long-winded title of "Twin Peaks - The Original Series, Fire Walk With Me, and The Missing Pieces
Wait...what? Didn't we already get this item, back about two years ago? Yes, back in July 2014 the folks at CBS/Paramount released "Twin Peaks - The Entire Mystery
" as a 10-disc Blu-ray set, with many extras described in their original press release
...including a ton of extras on the tenth and final disc in the collectible packaging.
Now the studio informs retailers that this NEW title will be a "9-disc Blu-ray in a slipcase
" that is "Available for the first time in new shelf-friendly packaging
." More, they offer the following note to retailers:
"NOTE: the 2014 Entire Mystery SKU is 10 discs and will still be available in its current configuration; this new SKU omits 1 disc and is priced for wider distribution"
So it's the same material, minus the tenth disc...that MUST be the one omitted, because the disc-by-disc breakdown in the press release linked above describes how Disc 9 includes both the Fire Walk With Me
theatrical film, AND "The Missing Pieces" deleted/alternate scenes, while Discs 1-8 include all the episodes of the original show's run, starting with both versions of the pilot.
All the material except the extras on that final disc, in a "shelf-friendly" version of the box (but with the same key artwork; see below), at a lower price point. We don't have the exact price at the time of this writing, but the original release from two years ago was $109.99 SRP...so the new set ought to clock in under a hundred bucks. If you had to pass on it in the past, maybe this new configuration of "Twin Peaks - The Original Series, Fire Walk With Me, and The Missing Pieces
is what you're looking for! Here's the box art with that rather long title:
The list price is $72.99 SRP, and we've added the Amazon pre-order button link as well:
