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): 41.35 min.
Runtime of the DVD Version (not including credits): 41.27 Min.
NOTE: For the DVD, the first 3 episodes where cut together to a "movie" - the runtime therefore only describes those scenes that originate from the second episode.
The time designations originate from the DVD version.
Mike is shown longer towards the beinning of the episode.
Mike is shown a little longer. The opening (which would normally follow now) is missing in both versions.
The long shot of Robbie is a little longer; then the scene fades out, followed by a black screen. The beginning of the next shot (Mike opens the door) is a little longer, too.
Robbie is shown a little longer, followed by another black screen.
The last shot is a little longer, too - the scene fades out. Again, the credits are missing in both versions.
