Sorry, Spicediver, but dumping Princess Irulan in favor of keeping that shite prologue from the TV version makes for a fan edit I’m not interested in watching. You should restore the Alan Smithee credit and remove Lynch’s name. Nice editing, but you really should bill this thing as “the new and improved TV VERSION.”

ADM’s version is closer to the ideal I’d want to see, but his has seriously problems with the video quality of the deleted scenes and with retaining so much of the Toto Muzak which plays randomly beneath every scene of the TV version. Ever notice that Eno’s name is still in the credits of the TV version but his Prophecy Theme is nowhere to be heard?

A better starting point would be to keep EVERYTHING from the theatrical release, extend it where possible, and do whatever can be done about the Muzak problem with the TV footage.

More Dune fan edits are required. We’re not there yet.
