Anyone want?

GONE! Full Twin Peaks series on video. I forgot to get out the separate pilot episode for the photo but it's included too. I love, love, love this show. K bought it for me many years ago (a big purchase at the time). I knew about it when it first aired on TV, but I wasn't allowed to stay up late enough to watch it - even though it seemed like everyone at school was watching it. It would have scared me way too much anyway.

I've now replaced it with the DVD edition so can't justify keeping the videos - does anyone local want to take them off my hands? Otherwise they'll go to Lifeline.

And this is another beloved TV series (both seasons) that I've recently replaced with DVDs - Poldark. Ordered in from the UK for me (and a similarly obsessed friend) one video at a time back when K was at Impact Records. If you follow my 'books I've read recently' list in the right-hand sidebar you might have noticed I've been rereading the Winston Graham series lately. He also wrote the book that the Hitchcock movie "Marnie" was based on. Closer to home, my sister was named after one of the characters in Poldark.


Edited to add:
I'm finding more as I go along: there is also:
- the Godfather Box set (3 movies).
- the miniseries of Stephen King's The Stand.
- the movie the Exorcist
- the movie the Abyss
- the movie Lost Highway by David Lynch

Hmm I'd like to watch them again but I don't have a video player. Probably more sensible to borrow your dvds!

I love Twin Peaks! But I've got the dvds already (and also my video player died - I think from lack of use!). On another note, does the guy on the Poldark vid (4th from left) look like Mr Darcy to you too? Or is that just me...

He does, a little bit. He's a less likeable character though (George Warleggan - Ross Poldark's nemesis).

Oooh, may I have Twin Peaks, please? I'll swap your for yarn!

Oooh Twins Peaks was too scary for me! A few of the scenes still haunt me ... I couldn't watch it all.

The Stand is one of my favorite Stephen King books and I love the mini series. But, I have no television or recorder anymore. Too bad. I'll have to find a place to rent it on dvd.
