SciFi show was a little over 4 hours, and you all know how much time they spend on commercials breaks.
NBC show was three hours and in HD here , I watched a lot of it, and copied it to D-VHS for a later view, seems NBC did not have near the same amount of time in commercials that they had on SciFi.
Do any of the "insiders" here know how much was cut for the NBC version, if any (not deleted stuff)? Actually, I really don't expect anyone who knows to fess up. I would not, as they were pushing the DVD sell through big time!
Bottom line IMHO is some of us got to see it in HD, if not DD5.1, so NBC came through for me, for a change. Win - Win! ;-)
