Oh, it is on the DVD. Sorry for the confusion with my wording. I meant it was cut for the TV reruns, but it IS still on the DVD.

It would have been completely shocking had they gone this route! I think it was wise for them to rethink this plot device. It certainly would have altered my opinion of Gus--but at the same time it would just seem completely out of character for him.

One of my dad's friends recognized her first, from her home-improvement show, which she was filming across the street. So my dad told ...

In the booklet that comes with the collector's edition DVD set, it says: "Kevin Sullivan was so confident in his choice that he cast a Farnsworth lookalike as a double to be used in wide shots...When Farnsworth did arrive on set, he couldn't understand why he only had to shoot the close-ups." Appare...

My sister received the collector's set for Christmas. The "missing episode" is indeed what I believe they called a "condensed version" of the Road to Avonlea episode "Old Friends, Old Wounds". So you were correct. We haven't watched it yet, but I think it means that they have edited out the bits tha...

Question about Old Lady Lloyd

Hi, I'm new to the forums, so I hope I posted this in the right place. I was watching the episode "Old Lady Lloyd" the other day and I noticed something strange. While driving Sylvia Grey to the singing competition, their buggy breaks down. Aunt Hetty tells Andrew to "run to Carlisle farm" but when ...
