EXTENDED EDITION IS ABC CUT!!,
This review is from: Waterworld (2-Disc Extended Edition) (DVD)
A few years after Waterworld was released on video ABC aired an extended cut on public television. I have been waiting for a long time for the extended edition to be released and now it finally has been. While watching it I relied something that shocked me that is the ABC version, the cussing is gone, the violence is soften and some scenes have been cut out, and no Helen bare back shot. Even some of the sound effects and music has been changed. After doing more research I found this to be true. Instead of revising a 'true' extended edition Universal just put the ABC version on here (without commercials of course) and just added a 5.1 soundtrack to it. What a waste of money this was/is. I guess that's why it is only 15 bucks, I would have gladly spent 50 bucks for an unedited extended cut.

why would You want a TV version of a cut down film , compared to many films the violence is mild , not bloody, Helens bare back really didn't do much anyway. Its a lot better than the standard version an has the Mount Everest sign at the end . If You want to blame anyone its Costners, the real Director walked off during editing the film . I paid $ 5 at Walmart bin .
