Sparked by vocal fans who in turn were backed by a recently apprised Damon Lindelof, Netflix is setting out to replace its version of
‘s two-part series finale, which apparently was missing 18 minutes from the original ABC broadcast.
The edits that Netflix has been streaming clocked in at about 43 minutes apiece, whereas the for-broadcast version that aired in 2010 ran a total of 104 minutes.

Among the numerous excised snippets, which are chronicled in this Reddit thread, is part of Jack and Locke’s conversation as they lowered [Spoiler] into the [spoiler], and a scene outside a church between Ben and Hurley.
“We are in the middle of correcting now, and will have the uncut version back streaming as soon as possible,” Netflix tweeted after EW.com reported on
co-showrunner Lindelof’s learning of the hullabaloo. (Lindelof suggested that Netflix merely was streaming the same version that is in syndication, which traditionally makes edits to fit hour dramas into a 42-minute frame.)
“[T]his is a fix that needs to happen,” Lindelof said to EW.com, “so at least people can love or hate it in its entirety.”
Had you in your streaming of the famously divisive finale noticed any missing bits?
Mad Men episode (s4e10) where there bleeped out one of Roger’s lines. I know I and many others have called Netflix about this. The entire series was presented unedited on Netflix except that one episode, so it’s even more jarring and unnecessary. Does Matthew Weiner know about this??
I wish they’d do that with Friends and The West Wing. Both shows having missing scenes on Netflix.
This is a normal thing on Netflix. I’ve noticed that quite a few shows finales are trimmed or the seasons are trimmed of episodes also.
If they are taking things from whatever went to syndication, my guess is that the answer is yes – it’s because they are getting a second hand product.
18 more minutes of the worst series finale of all time? Pass.
It’s weird because Netflix Latin American has the full 104 min. version.. guess every Netflix gets different masters.
i love your comments on comments and thanks for the netflix update…now im trying to figure out which lost version i saw lolol
