Compared are the Uncut TV Version on Spike TV and the Uncut US Unrated DVD by New Line Home Entertainment.

After the moderate success of the TV series of the successful motion pictures in the US, the series got cancelled after one season. Rumor has it that it was more successful on a marathon on Spike TV, where the Unrated Versions were aired, and as a result of that the show should go on. But a confirmation is still outstanding.

After Pilot aired in the US, its Unrated Version was released on DVD. The entire season, which contains the Unrated Version of all episodes box followed in February 2008. Advertised with the promotionally effective "Unrated" slogan and comments like "Too graphic for TV!", the actual differences are moderat: some minor plot extensions here, some alternate footage there, slightly more erotic and some "bad language". That's it. The other episodes contain similar "extensions".

The time indes refers to the TV Version from Spike TV.
The remaining difference is a result of rounding the running time of particular cut scenes to a half or a complete second. Furthermore differences below 1 sec aren't being considered due to a lack of relevance.
Some of the screen have been brighten up because it was kid of hard to recognize anything because they were too dark. As a result of that, the quality of some screens is lower. Sorry for that.
Running time US TV Version on Spike TV: 1:28:02 min (1:26:57 min without credits)
Running time US Unrated DVD: 1:29:00 min (1:28:23 min without credits)
