But if they can improve the stain somehow to make it look something more meaningful (blood, indentation, whatever) I'm all for it.
The way it is looks like an unfinished effect/water leak
Agreed. At the moment, the encroaching water doesn't justify Maddy's terrified response. The shot feels incomplete. Granted, my first viewing of the show was on VHS with bubble BOB shimmering into view - which definitely should not be restored as is - so that impression may be biased.
(How did that make its way on to the European video release and wherever else, BTW? I seem to recall that the shot was completed at the time of production and then jettisoned at the last minute due to poor effects in favour of what we got on the DVDs, but somehow the finished shot still made it into some versions).
It should either be turned into a more obvious bloodstain, or the BOB appearance should be incorporated in a way that's genuinely menacing, but which also suits the other effects shots in the show, although that may not be possible.
Then again, that's a good point about Maddy's first sight of BOB being him climbing over the couch. Perhaps it's best to preserve that.

Yes, huge thanks for your work on this release and the Gold Box, Charles. I was so excited to hear you were doing the extras for the DVD. It meant Peaks was finally going to get the documentary and suite of extra material it deserved.
Were you involved in the deleted scenes project then? Or just the newly produced extras for this set? I hope we can indeed find out more from you soon about how it all came about. Cheers.
