    Default Stephen King's Golden Years-VHS/DVD Lengths?

    I remember reading someone mentionning a few weeks ago that they were looking for the final episod of "Stephen King's Golden Years"


    The recent DVD boxset "Stephen King TV & Movie collection" by Paramount did include the tv miniseries but it only last about 3h56 : https://www.amazon.com/Stephen-King-...dp/B07BQN12ZQ/
    Same here : https://www.amazon.com/Stephen-Kings...dp/B00BW4S89S/
    Or here, from 2001 : https://www.amazon.com/Stephen-Kings...dp/B00005LQ0Q/

    An old DVD had the same duration, and but we do have 1 version that seems complete as it last about 6h10. However this one do only have french audio.

    Does anyone has an english audio version of GOLDEN YEARS that is longer than 3h56?

    Based on DVD or VHS it doesnt seem to be the case

    I think I have a Dutch edition on DVD that is all the episodes separated. Not sure what ending in have though. I think it's the "movie" version ending. I do however have the original last episode with the original ending on a VHS tape.

    Yes and it's 360 minutes (6 hours) and all the episodes. I'm not sure what ending it has though. The TV or the movie ending.

    I checked and it has the movie ending and I think the other one is longer so that might be the missing 10 min from the 6h10 info you have.

    Is it? Because the amazon link you gave mentions : DVD 1 = 115 Min., DVD 2 = 115 Min.

    Here's something on the matter of length of the original aired episodes vs the home video.

    I came accross this link, which has an interesting comparison, per episod, between the movie and the tv version.
    However, it says that there are 8 episods, not 7.
    Maybe it's because the extended DVDs say that the first episod is an hour and half, therefore the length of 2?

    from one of the comments:

    I previously bought the 2001 DVD release of "Golden Years" which was one long movie 236 minutes (2 hrs 56 min) long on 1 disc which has a different ending from the series/miniseries. This 2013 DVD re-release was billed as "the uncut miniseries", so I foolishly bought it and found that it runs...2 hrs 56 minutes long, just split into 2 parts over 2 discs. The uncut series ran seven 46-minute episodes (322 minutes or 5 hrs 22 min). The only other difference from the 2001 release is the ending, which is the series version. Part 1 just cuts out somewhere in the middle of what would be Episode 3. Somebody at the company decided that the series was too long to release on DVD, so they edited the last five episodes down to the length of three. If you want the uncut version don't buy this!! I guess I can't get rid of my old VHS copies yet!
    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    So i've recieved it. It's 6h14min20
    The very end is slightly different from my french longest version in which I saw the couple disappearing.
    In this one, they disappear, the "cop" or whatever he is i dont remember come to them, failed, and then get shot.

    So, this version contains ENG audio and is split like this :
    DVD 1 : 47:45, 46:01, 47:43, 47:42
    DVD 2 ! 47:38, 47:40, 47:40, 42:11
    Total of 6h14

    In the original ending Harland is captured and Gina dies. I think that was only shown on US TV. I have the last episode on a VHS taped from US TV but I have never seen in on any release you can buy.

    Intriguing. Have you ever considered getting it digitalised before the tape is not readable anymore?

    Whoever owns the rights should release the full version on blu-ray along with the edited version, at last.
