Forum: The Situation Room > 24- Alternate DVD Versions

On the article for Harris, one of Andre Drazen's men, there's a claim that there is footage of him being threatened by Andre with a knife and this scene was excluded from the first release of 24- Season 1. Where is the source to back this up? http://24.wikia.com/wiki/Harris_(Day_1)

I'm typically not one to question sources unless there's special editions (which is the case with Day 1 but never did I hear that there was extra episode footage) but if so, I would've expected it to have been on a site like movie-censorship.com if anything which is currently is not.--Gunman6 20:09, July 10, 2012 (UTC)

If you watched the show in the UK, then it was part of the aired episode and wasn't "extra footage" at all - and on the UK dvd, it's included as standard part of the episode. It is present on the special edition US dvd. If you really want a source, I could upload a shot of Andre holding Harris at knifepoint - do you want me to?
On a related note, I was looking at the 24:_Season_One_VHS_Collection, which is for the UK VHS edition. It claims it has "slightly extended cuts of the last four episodes" - does this just refer to the standard UK cuts (which are extended only in comparison to the US cuts), or is there an even more extended edition on the VHS copy? We should probably clarify it--Acer4666 (talk) 00:13, July 11, 2012 (UTC)
Sure, I believe you but that would be great to see the extra footage. Sometimes, for unknown reasons, scenes are removed (minor or not) and one ends up noticing differences that aren't the cause of bad memory or remembering wrongly but simply different versions by country.

Personally, I think the UK Opening Theme of 24 Day 2 would've been great to have in the States but then again, it would take far more time to fast-forward through all the episodes "Previously on" while marathoning but still ...--Gunman6 05:46, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

I've always been under the impression that the S1 UK VHS release had the "uncut" episodes (ie. the ones aired in the UK), while the UK DVDs were the shorter US versions (with or without the Previouslys, I don't know). --proudhug (talk) 16:48, July 14, 2012 (UTC)
