hey stan,
i've heard that all episodes were actually recorded as 40mins for US TV and then reduced to 22mins for Aus TV. Is this true and if so are the dvd episodes the full 40mins.

I have the dvd in Australia and the episodes runing time are only 22 minutes. What happened to the 1-2 minutes extra. The episodes are certainly not 40 mins. Can someone who knows the episodes well (as I don't remember syndicate versions) confirm that the Aus DVD feature the 2 min longer episodes.

I thought all episodes were SUPPOSED to be 22 minutes, with the rest going to commercials.

Yeah, something like that. But it doesn't surprise me that someone who 'has the DVD's' will not be able to see the episodes in their entirety, since these DVDs were made from homemade recordings of syndicated episodes.

Sorry Rio, but you obviously aren't aware that in Australia since Oct 20th we can now buy the first 3 series officially. No one has been "freakin ripped off" and these aren't "homemade recordings", they're the real thing.

The only 40 minutes episodes are the double length episodes like "The Boyfriend", "The Pilot" or "The Raincoats", single episodes are more or less 22 minutes.
