    Can anyone tell me exactly which lines are missing in the UK DVD edition for the 'Company Picnic' episode? I've found the scene which is missing, but I'd like to know about the lines of dialogue, too.
    I'd love to help you with this, but I'm not aware of an hour-long original, as I've only seen the show in syndication.

    The DVD versions run for 21:35 mins (I) and 22:06 (II), and the old video file I have of them has them strung together at 42:50 - minus end credit sequences.

    I hope there's still someone around with a full copy.

    I just found these relevant quotes from USA Today:

    http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/life/...24-malcolm.htm

    The Super Bowl script started as an episode that was 10 pages too long for Malcolm's regular half-hour slot (Sundays, 8:30 p.m. ET/PT). When Fox program chief Gail Berman asked if Malcolm had a potential hour-long episode, Boomer expanded the script, which also shows oldest son Francis (Christopher Masterson) in a hockey game with Klum and coaches Terry Bradshaw and Howie Long.
    and Internet Movie Database:

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0640308/alternateversions

    Originally aired as an hour special, this episode has since been split into 2 parts, having certain scenes re-ordered, and the locker room scene in the ice rink is cut.

    By the way, I think that 'one hour episode' should be taken with a big grain of salt.

    I don't think that much was cut, because MITM is known as a 30-minute show, which in fact means 22 minutes or so with 8 minutes of commercials.

    Similarly, I guess 'one hour' would mean about 45 mins.

    I hope the one hour special episode is included in full on the French release, as it originally went out as the Super Bowl lead-out program. Would be cool to see a MITM episode in this format. Was an awesome episode too.

    We're trying to get the right, full version for the French edition.
    Hi Tyno,
    I'm relying on memory here now, but the only line I can think of off the top of my head is when Reece & George are tied together (when George 'finds a cup') - at some point George says "My eyes are tired" which is cut in the syndicated version. I can't remember Reece's line that was cut out though. Just out of curiosity, does this have anything to do with a particular enquiry to ShowShank from a few days ago?

    I do have the full version on an old hard drive, so I could find time to do a comparison at some point if you wish?

    EDIT: Oh yeah, Richiepiep, you are indeed correct when you say the run time is closer to 45 minutes, as the 1-hour includes the commercials. There'd have been about 1 to 2 mins cut at most, and this would have been because of the intro being added to part 2.

    And RE: the season 2 5* screenshots, I'm afraid the discs they're burned to are in storage right now, but I will attempt to locate them after I have university out the way in May! I promise that I won't forget

    Not really related to the lost scenes or lost extras quests, but I must say that the French S2 release, from what I see on Malcolm France, again looks beautifully and consistenly designed, with nicely edited group shots and individual shots, and fluent screen menus.

    Oh, yes, the packaging takes some getting used to as far as the placement of the double disks is concerned. It's something I hadn't seen before, and looked quite scary when I tried to take them out.

    The idea is to observe the two levers (plastic 'wings') at the bottom of the disk, insert your index finger into the disk hole, and gently slide the disk down against the levers, until they give way. Then the disk is released from the clips holding the top, and you can take them out. So don't try to lift them vertically from the packaging like the usual disks with a fastener in the middle!

    Yes, indeed, it does! They take it very seriously.

    It seems that the French dubbing was made on the syndicated version, so I doubt the editor will be able to include the full, one-hour version in the DVD set as there is no dubbing for it. But maybe they'll be able to include the full episode, or at least the bits which were cut, as extras!

    If you find the time to do a comparison, that'd be great and useful for the editor. I've found the original version of the episode, but I don't have enough time to compare everything that's been cut/changed. I've just noticed that the locker room scene (from 25:28 to 26:52) has been cut, as well as part of a scene (27:42 to 27:56).

    I'm glad to hear that ShowShank are incredibly loyal to their fans!

    Perhaps it would be an idea to employ branching in this case? That way, it would save you from putting the same episode on the same disc twice. You could have an option to watch the syndicated verson in French or English, then the original version in English? Or maybe include subtitles for the cut scenes? Although that idea seems a bit farfetched, but I thought I would voice it anyway!

    I shall be on to the comparison shortly, and hopefully I will have a complete list for you this week!

    Are the episode titles displayed in French at the start of each episode, or is everything the way it originally was, besides the dubbing?

    All the titles are in English. The episodes are directly sourced from the widescreen American masters.

    By the way, mass5160 and I made you some comparisons screenshots between the French set and the UK set for season 2.

    We're on about doing one more comparison, but can't decide which episode to choose! It's between "Hal Quits", "Bowling" & "Carnival". Which would you guys be most interested in seeing?
