Pretty sure they won't edit those scenes, since i've been getting the unedited versions on my local syndication every time they show that episode. Where do you guys live thats cutting the WTC part? Its a pretty substantial segment of that episode, so i'm curious what they show instead.
Well I live in the Milwaukee area...they cut out the whole part when Homer has to go up the tower to use the bathroom. Granted, the last time I saw this episode was probably 3 years ago...I quit watching the reruns because they were edited so much.
I live in Milwaukee too; here, they cut out every moment where the Twin Towers are shown (i.e., at home when Lisa shows Homer the magazine ad with the New York bus special - there is a picture of the Towers; that part is cut).
But even if the episode is edited on the DVD, I'll probably still buy it just to add it to my collection.
I would think these episodes will not be cut. First, it's not syndication, it's a DVD collection- its not being aired so there is no reason to cut any episodes. Secondly, if anything, these collections have had extra footage all along so cutting anything would seem just a little bit odd.
Why do they cut out scenes of the WTC from anything? Are we supposed to forget they even existed? I think that shows/movies with the WTC should be shown even more often so people NEVER forget what those coward terrorist took from us! I want to see the old Spider-man trailer again too!
