Lose yourself in David Lynch and Mark Frost's murder mystery-soap opera, which unfolds, in one character's words, "like a beautiful dream and terrible nightmare all at once".

Season 1
Twin Peaks devotees, who have kept the mystery alive on myriad Web sites, will jump at the chance to return to the spooky town that might just be the anti-Mayberry. Rarely syndicated, the Twin Peaks television series has lost none of its quirky and queasy power to get under your skin and haunt your dreams. So brew up a pot of some "damn fine coffee," dig into some cherry pie, and lose yourself in David Lynch and Mark Frost's murder mystery and soap opera, which unfolds, in one character's words, "like a beautiful dream and terrible nightmare all at once." Twin Peaks was a pop culture phenomenon for one season at least, until the increasingly bizarre twists and maddening teases so confounded audiences that they lost interest in just who killed Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee). This series was a career peak for most of its eclectic ensemble cast, including Kyle MacLachlan as straight-arrow FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper, Michael Ontkean as local Sheriff Harry S. Truman, Sherilyn Fenn as bad girl Audrey Horne, Peggy Lipton as waitress Norma Jennings, and Catherine Coulson as the Log Lady. Alumni enjoying current success include Lara Flynn Boyle ("The Practice"), as good girl Donna Hayward, and Miguel Ferrer ("Crossing Jordan"), hilarious as forensics expert Albert Rosenfield (who has absolutely no "social niceties"). -Donald Liebenson

Season 2
"Don't search for all the answers at once," says a giant appearing to FBI Agent Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) in a vision. "A path is formed by laying one stone at a time." In Twin Peaks, that's easier said than done. Over the course of two seasons, that path went nowhere and everywhere. "Bureau guidelines, deductive technique, Tibetan method, and luck" don't cut it here. It also takes a little magic, which is what makes David Lynch and Mark Frost's bracingly original serial drama one of TV's ultimate trips, and still the stuff that fever dreams are made of. With the DVD release of season 2, die-hard Peakers can rekindle their obsession with this macabre, maddening, sinister, and surreal series set in the rural Pacific Northwest community whose bucolic surroundings hide "things dark and heinous." (If you're new to Twin Peaks, best to get the lay of the land by watching the brilliant feature-length pilot and the instant-cult-classic first season, which capture Twin at its peak.) Three main mysteries drive season 2. First, there's the still (!) unresolved murder of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee). Then, there's the question of who shot Cooper in the season 1 cliffhanger. And finally, ultimately: What about Bob? With its dream logic, bizarre behavior, and nightmare imagery, much of what transpires goes right by you. Some subplots (Sherilyn Fenn's sexpot Audrey held captive at the bordello, One-Eyed Jacks) are easier to latch on to than others (amnesiac Nadine believes she's an 18-year-old high schooler) And, yes, that's a pre-X-Files David Duchovny as Dennis/Denice, a transsexual DEA agent.

In Twin Peaks' second season, the truth is out there, but we are entering A Few Good Men territory. When Laura's killer is at last revealed in episode 16, no doubt many will not be able to handle the truth. The teases, red herrings, and out-and-out gonzo looniness will try the patience of viewers with a more conventional bent. But, as Cooper observes at one point, "All in all, [it's] a very interesting experience," with enough doppelgangers, allusions, pop-culture references, and in-jokes to keep bloggers buzzing. If, for example, you get any pleasure from recognizing Hank Worden, who played Mose in The Searchers, as "the world's most decrepit room service waiter," then Twin Peaks may just make you feel right at home.

Not seen Mulholland Drive but Twin Peaks has a midget that talks backwards and a log lady, yes! she carries a log around with her.....and not forgetting Cherry Pie.... back in the 80s this was superb television and "a must see"......how it has aged though, I cannot say.....but will be shortly finding out as this is a bargain.

In the 90's. I didn't think Mulholland drive was odd, typical David Lynch - try watching Lost Highway then ;) that will really mess you.

Excellent deal and an iconic series. Pity Fire Walk With Me isn't included though. For the completists out there, it is available from Amazon for the princely sum of £2.99 - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Twin-Peaks-Fire-Walk-DVD/dp/B001LNW2KQ/ref=pd_sim_d_h__1 (just don't watch it before you see the series).

The first season is brilliant but the 2nd one loses it's way after the killer is revealed.

Great price though - well worth buying and watching :)

An excellent box set for an excellent series. I bought this in a previous deal when it was around £30 so this is a steal.

I wasn't even a year old when this series first aired (sorry to make you feel old) and having never seen it before I thoroughly enjoyed it right to the end. Brilliant story, fantastic characters, great music and plenty of strange and funny moments. Having finished watching it I was sad to not be able to watch more - bring Twin Peaks back, that's what I say!

For those that have never saw this, this is quite literally in the top 5 greatest TV shows ever made.

For those that want crazy lynch, this has it all and then some.The last 10 mins of Mullahond Drive don't come close to 'what the' crazy as the last episode of Season 2 of this set (which sadly ended in a series of cliff hangers we never got answered)

For those that want scary, there is a character in this TV series that is so terrifying that you will literally pee yourself with fear every time they are on the screen - I kid you not!

I remember watching this on its first run aged 9/10 peeing myself with fear at certain scenes.

If you like Lost this is what many people say was the precursor to it as it was as OTT crazy and convoluted as Lost.

For £18 don't even contemplate it, buy it.

Whatever you do, don't watch Fire Walk with me first. Its a prequel but it ruins the series type prequel.

This is the series that made the X Files, Lost and every other off the wall TV show possible. And David Duchovny even plays a transvestite FBI agent in Twin Peaks!!

Every home must own this!

Errrmmm How is it the definitive boxset without including FWWM?

Apparently there is some ownership issue with FWWM. It's now owned by CANAL in France (I think) so there's probably the usual financial wrangle that the two parties can't agree on.

Separate question though... I have this on Region 1 already. Does anyone know if there is a difference in content or transfer quality?

Please do not buy this. (well not until my order ships, te he he)

Seriously though this is an amazing show, I watched this when it originally aired and was hooked.
I did have this all on VHS, but sold them as they took up too much space, glad to have them coming back to me on DVD.
