From Amazon.co.uk

"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. --Donald Liebenson

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally... 17 Sep 2007
Format:DVD
I would reccommend this to anyone who, like me, has been waiting for EVER for a UK release of Season 2. Apart from a little bit of writing on the box, the disks are just the same as if it had been a UK release. The default on the disks is for English with no subtitles, and they contain all the extras of the US release. In fact, I prefer this to the Region 1 as the box art ties in better with that of the Season 1 release. So don't hang around for them to eventually release it in the UK in two seperate parts, grab this one! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars life is now complete ;-p 17 July 2007
By daniel
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
With no set UK release date for season 2 your only way to make life complete would be to buy the separate volume 1 & 2 mainland european release but why do that when the Dutch have season 2 available as one complete boxset.

For the obsessive like me:
The six disc set is nicely presented, the two volumes are packaged gatefold style.

The front cover of the boxset is in English as are the front covers of volumes one & two, the writing on the DVDs is also in English.

Only the backs' of the boxset, volumes one & two are in Dutch.

Once you insert the DVD, you are asked to choose your language, the menu loads up in your respective language & then finally you get to watch season 2 in all its digitally restored glory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Climbing the peaks 28 April 2007
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
"Twin Peaks" was the ultimate cult TV show -- suspenseful, complex, wittily written and with hidden layers that casual channel-flippers might not catch.

And while the long-awaited second season is not quite the brilliant experience that the first was, it's still an astoundingly good and convoluted piece of storytelling. With more episodes to fill out, David Lynch continued his exploration of small-town America -- too bad it didn't last more than this second season.

As the second season opens, there is major unrest for the inhabitants of Twin Peaks -- and a badly-injured Cooper (Kyle McLachlan) has a vision that may have something to do with Laura Palmer's death. But the murder investigation is only getting more bizarre, as Cooper learns of Laura's diary -- and discovers a bizarre twist in an already-bizarre murder investigation.

The mystery is solved mid-season, and the foreshadowing reveals who it is (or rather, who it SEEMS to be). But that's not the only plotline in the second season -- Lynch bestows a psychopathic ex-Fed, parasitic demons, a disastrous beauty pageant, strange caves, and a twin pair of "Lodges" that seem to exist outside space and time... which Cooper's murderous ex-partner is searching for.

The second season of "Twin Peaks" is, admittedly, not quite as good as the first season. The first season was tight as a drum, while the second has some storylines that run away from the writers. But even mediocre "Twin Peaks" is simply brilliant and bizarrely entertaining.

In fact, this season gets even weirder than the first. Lynch's quirkiness grows into total weirdness, full of symbolism, surreality and dirty little secrets right up the end.

By Wayne Klein VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
"Twin Peaks" has been unfairly criticized for jumping the shark early. That's simply not true. Lynch and his films have never had easy resolutions. It's also clear that Lynch and Frost weren't exactly sure where they where going with the second season. the first season of the show with its mixture of surrealism, soap opera situations, suspense and melodrama caught on unexpectedly and created unrealistic expectations for the second.

Sure there were a handful of second season episodes that stretched the patience of the audience but overall the second season holds up quite well when compared to the first. A pity that "Twin Peaks" never had a "true" resolution (I know a lot of folks dislike the way the series ended. Reportedly Lynch and Frost did this to try and keep the network on the hook for a third season or TV movie).

First up, the show looks great. Lynch went back and supervised the transfers and the colors are more accurate than on the first season set that came out from Aristan in 2001. We get all 22 second season episodes. We also get Log Lady introductions. We get a selection of interesting interviews with production staff including directors Caleb Deschanel, Tim Hunter, Stephen Gyllenhaal, Jennifer Lynch, Tim Holland and various cast members in an "Interview Gird". Sadly, Lynch is absent but he always is for the home video presentations of his films so its not a surprise. That's OK as he is ably represented by the show itself. The show has a huge influence that impacted other shows like "The X-Files" (Duchovny's role as an FBI agent here and his casting in "X-Files" couldn't have been an accident and although he lacks the zen-like quality of McLaughlan)to even recent shows such as "Lost" and "The Lost Room".

5.0 out of 5 stars Why Wait Any Longer? 7 Aug 2008
By C. Mead
Format:DVD
If you live in the UK and want to get Twin Peaks Season 2 Region 2, I'd recommend that you get this.

Like some of the other reviewers here, I was getting pretty sick of waiting for a UK release of Season 2 Region 2, which looked ever more unlikely as time went on.

This boxed set is a perfectly adequate alternative, as only the packaging is in Dutch, and the most set-up you need to do is pick "English" upon playing the DVD.

It's nicely presented in a similar manner to the Season 1 boxed set as well.
