Episode 1×01 – The Extended Edition

This may come as a surprise to some of you (it certainly did to me), but if you compare the US and the UK versions of the Dominion Blu-rays, you’ll find that the pilot episode on the UK version is about 20 minutes longer than the one on the US Blu-rays.

I’m lucky enough to have both versions of the episode to be able to compare them (yes, I’m that much of a geek to buy them both), so let’s take a closer look at the additional lines, shots and scenes in the extended version of the pilot.

If I didn’t love the show as much as I do, I wouldn’t be taking the time and effort to do this.
Please read these recaps as a humorous, tongue-in-cheek attempt to pay homage to a show that I think it wonderfully written, acted, shot and produced. ‘Nuff said. Now go away or dare read on at your own peril.
