I just signed a "Millennium on DVD" Petition. So far 1029 signatures. A box set of all three seasons would be a definite purchase as would 24.
Are you suggesting there is already existing material that takes place between the commercialsI have no idea if there is or isn't, but something like that was mentioned by somebody in another thread. I don't know, maybe it's like movies where they shoot more scenes (or longer scenes) than they end up using. They have to edit down for time. Maybe they could go back and re-edit a "director's cut" to fill in that missing time using more footage -- as long as it fit in with the rest of the program and didn't detract from it.
It would be ironic if the DVD set of "24" was only really "18" after commercials were taken out. But if they were able to make the runtime exactly 24 hours it would be neat, not to mention be an incentive for buyers.
I do suppose it would be cost prohibitive to go back and film more scenes after the fact. If they could do that then maybe they could insert some material that would tie up some loose ends a little better and make Nina's earlier actions more plausible (but without giving away the ending).
I don't know, just thinking out loud here ...
It would be nice to round up the time to 24 hours, but I'm surprised at all the discussion here and other places online that treat this as a realistic possibility. We're talking about *six hours* of additional material here . . . . it is simply not going to happen, nor should fans expect it.I agree here. I think the reason people would love to see that is so that they don't lose that sense of "real time" that the commercials helped to provide.
But it's terribly unrealistic. I guess people will just have to realize "24" means 24 epsiodes, and not 24 hours.
And I would buy a bare bones set of this, but a commentary of a FEW (not all) of the episodes would be fun. God knows there are enough characters that each of them has a standout episode they can comment on.
