the stars aligned recently and we are very happy. last january some family members gave us two $3o gift certificates for amazon.com. we pondered what we could buy with our mad money. it occurred to me that we should combine our cash to get something that we both want. something like twin peaks on dvd.
except that season 1 was no longer available on dvd. and there's the pesky problem of the pilot being sold separately and with a different ending that what originally aired on tv.
after watching blue velvet recently, i really really wanted to watch twin peaks again but really really did not want to rent it at $5.50 per DVD of 4 episodes. i'm not even sure that gen x has it on DVD; the first time i rented them it was all VHS. i looked around on line but balked at paying $80+ for used season 1 DVDs. We hoped that the studio would re-release a fancy schmancy box set for the 20th anniversary of the show.
i had shared my twin peaks love with a friend a work and two weeks ago she she my an OH MY GOD DID YOU KNOW ABOUT THIS? email with a link to lo! a fancy schmancy box set that includes the pilot, seasons 1 and 2 and bonus features all for $75.
thanks to our dollar kicking ass, two $30 gift certificates, for the low low price of $17.97 US (that's like $16.50 CN!), we've been watching an episode or two every night for the past week.
thanks, jube-jube. and happy birthday to us!
