Now that the miniseries version is finally available, I have to raise the question.

By now most know that the original was conceived in such a way that it was a full-length miniseries for German TV, and for an international theatrical release. So does the new disc qualify as a HT movie, since it is assembled into one cut with a theatrical 1.85: letterbox aspect ratio, or is this a non-oar television disc? Heads? Tails?

From an original Saturday Night Live sketch...

"New Shimmer is a floor wax!"
"No, new Shimmer is a dessert topping!"
"It's a floor wax !"
"It's A DESSERT TOPPING!"

"Hey, hold on you two - new Shimmer is a floor wax - AND a dessert topping!"
