Re: How Would You Show Both Versions Of The Gathering?

Oh absolutely for completeness, but also because I personally feel that neither is perfect. I like the re-edit, but I think there are aspects of the original cut that have some merit. Plus I think the original cut gives you a good idea of what they were originally intending - note walk through the alien sector. I know why a good chunk of that was cut, but the effort and idea was not a mistake. It just might not have turned out the way JMS wanted. So I think both versions need to be seen for completeness and understanding.
