I wish they’d release the extended cut of Skin Deep
Apparently the original running length for the Once upon a Time episode Skin Deep was a full eighteen minutes longer than they were allowed. The choice was either pad it out into two episodes or cut it down. Due to the length of the season they chose to cut it down.
I wish they would release the extended cut as a DVD bonus. It is a very popular episode. The filming script for it was leaked online, which is a rarity.
Back in 2008, when The Scifi channel (now Syfy) made its short lived Dresden Files TV series, the eighth episode was Storm Front, based on the first book of the Dresden Files Book series and was actually the show’s original pilot cut down. When cut down to episode length and squeezed in at episode eight it didn’t really work. Later an extended version was shown just once (in the middle of the night) as a Scifi channel original movie. Since then bootlegs of the longer cut have surfaced online and it’s become the most sought after relic from the short lived TV series.
They should consider releasing the extended Skin Deep in some form.
