This is a comparison between the shortened DVD released by e-m-s and the uncensored German Free-TV-Version.
The series "Glory Days" (aka Demontown) was pretty unsuccesful in the USA which is the reason why the American producers did not finish the first season. The series was dropped after 9 episodes (still to this day, 2 episodes have not been released).
The series was also not really a success in other countries - in Germany, for example, the series was at first aired in a censored version and later released on DVD. Instead of releasing the complete series, the studio decided to cut the episodes together to make 3 movies out of the first 7 episodes. This "Movie-Versions" has been released in the most countries in which the series made it to a DVD release. In february 2006, the German TV channel RTL 2 gave the series a second chance and aired it during nighttime and entirely uncensored.
The UK-DVD of Demontown 1 (2 and 3 or a complete box have not been released, yet) misses out on 20 additional seconds.
Overall, there are 14 cuts that result in an overall runtime of 505 seconds (about 8.5 minutes) of missing footage.
Runtime of the TV Version (not including credits): 42.52 min.
Runtime of the DVD Version (not including credits): 42.13 Min.
NOTE: For the DVD, several episodes where cut together into a "movie" - the runtime therefore only describes those scenes that originate from the fourth episode.
The time designations originate from the uncut version.
On the DVD there's a short transition while the TV version shows a short black screen. On the DVD, the opening was already shown, therefore it won't be included in the overall difference in time.
Mike is choked a little longer, followed by a black screen.
And another black screen...
Sara is shown inside her office a little longer. She sits down and then picks up the card of the paediatrician. She rips it into pieces. In the end there's a missing shot of the editorial department of the "Glory Gazette".
