Hello,

Since I dont live in America and dont have the US Comedy Central, I would like to ask if there are any (small) differences between the movie version and the broadcasted 4 parts version from Comedy Central?

I guess the last 1 or 2 movies still werent sent on TV. But what about BBS and the beast movie?

Is there any different content or whatsoever on the episodes? Or do you like the pacing from the 4 part episodes better? And which is your favourite version?

Thank you.

I have not watched the episodes myself, though something may seem to indicate they are coming on a box set: http://theinfosphere.org/Volume_Five

But the Infosphere also seems to have "Film to Episode Edits" sections on the episodes, e.g.:

I wouldnt wonder much if that box set has both the movie and the episode versions in it.
Since both versions are mostly the same, it would occupy the same space on the disc (theory). I guess it was only a matter of time, that an idea for a box set would be dropped.

And those "film to episode edits" are interesting but I only would like to know if there are some minor differences (in a few words) and if the pacing of the episodes is better.

For me BBS feels like a whole movie. Its done great. But the Beast movie feels more like 4 episodes put into one big movie - which makes the pacing sloppy.

Thanks for the information Svip.

If they are releasing a box set, then they will probably release the episode cuts.  Anything else wouldn't make sense.

Anything would really make sense to increase sales and try to make it more appealing to renew the series on T.V.

Thats true. Thats how the economy is going in terms of DVDs.
Every popular movie has now a single DVD & a Collectors Edition.... years later of course there comes the even better Collectors Collection Edition or whatever.  hmpf

The episodes have slight parts cut out, the start has a recap of what has happened, and the end has a to be continued. Good enough for what's different, not disappointing, no?
