Hello Everyone,

David Lynch finally pulls out (almost) all the stops with the release of "Twin Peaks: The Definitive Gold Box Edition" covering the two-hour pilot, the complete season 1, the complete season 2 and... wait... what's that? no "Fire Walk with Me"? That hardly seems definitive but probably worth re-watching anyway. In other news, lots of TV again this week (CSI: Miami, L-Word, Miami Ink, Scrubs, Veronica Mars, etc), a few interesting PAL TV shows ("The It Crowd" and "Kath & Kim"), and one of my favorites of late -- "Hamish Macbeth" (watch it in preparation for a trip to Scotland... or just a nice glass of scotch in private).

Hi-def scorecard: While the HD camp has finally pulled out their sub-$200 player trump card (the Toshiba HD-A2 -- available everywhere) the folks at Warner Brothers are making noise about not supporting both formats much longer (and seem to be leaning towards BR). Locally, HD is still beating out BR by about 22%: we've got 97 HD-DVDs w/99 rentals vs 103 BluRay-DVDs w/81 rentals. Bring on the holidays!

Essential Art House Films Update: Last week's film was Yasujiro Ozu's 1959 remake of his own 1934 film, "Floating Weeds". This week's films will be François Truffaut's "The 400 Blows". In case you are interested, the latest review is always on Renter's front page with a link to the rest of the reviews below it.

Have a great day...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
