I got my White Shadow set in the mail yesterday from Amazon and I checked the running times for all of the episodes. Episode 3, The Offer, comes in at 43:40 while all of the other episodes come in at 48:10. That means that this is cut by 4 and a half minutes. Just to verify, I pulled out the tape I have from the early 80s (syndication, unfortunately, not CBS) and I A/B'd the episode. Even with my cut version I found a 2 1/2 minute scene that is missing from the DVD. I'm sure that screening a complete episode would turn up the other missing 2 minutes. Love to hear Fox's explanation for that. Initially my thought was that since there are scenes in the episodes of the team singing songs in the shower, that perhaps it was a music clearance edit. But, no, this episode does contain a shower scene with the team singing Duke of Earl and it is left intact. So that wasn't it.
