Now, only three days later, MGM is reportedly set to provide the longer, 60+ minute version of the episode that originally aired on The SCI FI Channel available to those who have purchased Season Eight. The studio issued the following reply to TVShowsOnDVD.com:
- Thank you for purchasing Stargate SG-1 Season 8 Giftset. We will be making the original broadcast version of the episode “Threads” available soon. If you would prefer that version, we will be offering an exchange and will notify you details of this exchange soon. We apologize for any inconvenience this might have caused.
There is no word yet on whether the disc will also include an audio commentary for the episode, which was also conspicuously missing from this week’s release.
We’ll have more details on how to exchange your “Threads” disc when they are available.
