S3 is "the complete answers"!
I never loved the idea of calling it S3 even before it aired, since it always felt like it was going to be a completely independent work taking place in the TP universe. The content bore that out. I prefer to look at it as a sequel a la FWWM, but I guess I'll follow the creators' intent (now that we know) and call it S3. The upside is that this nomenclature does pretty officially give TP the gold medal for weirdest evolution of a series ever, from the somber pilot to zany sitcom mid-to-late season 2, to the arthouse-meets-mythology-driven series of S3.
My ideal extra will never happen, particularly given DKL's hatred of audio commentaries. But I would love audio (and maybe visual) of L&F watching the entire series together all the way through in one sitting, commenting in real time and getting increasingly cranky and sleep deprived. Imagine DKL whining that he has to meditate and Mark jonesing for his twitter fix.
Btw, the box art rocks.
