This is a comparison between the German TV broadcast version and the German extended Blu-ray version
- 4 deviations
- Time difference: 59,4 sec
Broadcasting since 2010 AMCīs The Walking Dead is a great success.
8 years later the show is still running and reached its corresponding 8th season.
Among itīs German home cinema releases, the seasons 4 and 6 stood out above all:
In the 4th season there were two extended versions and one uncensored version of the final episode. In season 6, an episode with the still defused F-word was to be seen and the season finale was extended in several scenes by a few curses from Negan (notorious for his loose mouth).
After the season 7 home cinema release made an exception again, season 8 has 6 episodes in extended form.
The already available US-Blu-ray was available to us and in contrast to season 6 not both versions, but only the extended versions are on the discs. These are the episodes 5, 6, 8, 14, 15 and 16. On the 8th of November 2018 the season will also be released in Germany on Blu-ray (and fortunately you get the longer versions aswell. However, the German counterpart will include the regular TV versions and the extended versions available as bonus content in english with German subtitles.
Episode 6 The King, the Widow, and Rick) offers one minute of additional material. Again, the additional material was cut just for tightening reasons and this time without alternative material. Just unspectacular additional scenes.
