A tremendous idea, very well executed.

I’ve watched the two seasons of Twin Peaks twice all the way through and I love the show.

The biggest thrill for me watching this fanedit was how the story of Laura’s killer came so much more sharply into focus. I can see now that it’s really a story about possession – demonic possession – but the original TV series stretched out and diluted the main narrative so much that, until now, I never regarded in this light.

The 16:9 framing is surprisingly good. Only a handful of scenes suffer a little from chopping the top and bottom off the frame.

Editing is mostly excellent and the lead up to the climax – with added dream footage from episode 29 – is handled well. I had some minor issues with the continuity at the start of the 2nd disc regarding the mostly excised subplot about Dr Jacoby receiving a supposed phone call from Laura Palmer and going to meet her. The remaining elements of that subplot didn’t quite gel.

Great fanedit. 9/10.
