I've yet to receive my gold box, but this is most likely due to your DVD player.
On my Philips DVP5505S the image and sound sometimes go out of sync when I adjust playback speed a lot in a short span of time.

Today i saw both pilots and bonus features on disc 10. The interview with Angelo when he's playing the piano is so powerful, it was magic.. The other great moment was The Slice of Lynch, especially when he sees the actors, they show us his look and it's very touching.

I must say it was the first time i saw Twin Peaks with remastered picture and sound, and it is perfect. Very happy with this box. :wink:

I waited for three weeks, and today i had to pay a large tax to take my pocket, i don't know why. Besides, the pocket had a German Post sticker on it. That was a mystery.

Good Lord. I did not remember Ben Horne's admission about Laura Palmer. There was my answer to whether he cared about anyone but himself. Is there any man in Twin Peaks who was not in love with her? And the wait for the answer to Audrey's question is the best pause I've ever seen.

I always though that was a little odd that he would say he loves Laura. I mean, really?

Which is a far cry (and why it seemed absolutely sincere to me) from what I thought Ben Horne's party line was and which he told Catherine during one of their sexual romps, "Business, pleasure, it's all the same to me."

Yeah, he didn't kill her, but was sleeping with her, but as long as he didn't kill her. I hate that all of Ben and Jerry's evil deeds are just swept under the rug, and then only treated as comedic relief. So much more could have happened.

My thoughts on my set are that its lucky to have survived.
I ordered it from amazon.com and it came all the way here to the UK in decent time, BUT as i picked up my mail my heart was pounding when i saw the box set without any kind of envelope just lying on the floor!!!
Looking at the padded envelope it came in it was horrifically torn up (any one would think i'd got a dog/BOB if they saw it) thankfully the box set is in almost perfect condition, just a little crease on a corner. *phew*
