I dug this out of my VHS vault.

"Jaws 2 - takes place four years after the horrid events in Amity, seen in the first film. Of course, like all movies, Jaws 2 went through the editing process and a lost a few scenes in the interest of time. In the 1980's it was common practice to add scenes left on the cutting room floor and often reinstated into television airings of the film to pad the running time and sell more ad space.

Edited from the theatrical cut of the film these scenes were re-added to this Network Television Version: This version adds a few scene that are not available on the now OOP Universal DVD deleted scenes section.

A few notable additions, some are included on the now OOP DVD.
ONE THING TO NOTE: These extra scenes have been edited from the television studio a common praxtice in the 80's.

It's available where the demons roam.


Any interest of comments on this preservation, let's discuss.

Remember, Highlander, you’ve both still got your full measure of life. Use it well, and your future will be glorious.

The THING is gonna be next, since you asked ;-) , and yes!!!! not all the scenes are on the deleted scenes section of the Universal DVD, it is edited different. There is a voice-over which explins the characters as well as an altrnate ending.

I'm all for this type of release. It's a free torrent, and this is the way alot of people remember seeing the film.

Mitch, can you please describe the scene that is not included on the dvd, but in in your release?

Ellen, adding wine to the fruit punch, and tells the waitress to smile and look cute.


I know that one's not on the DVD release. It's a pretty brief scene.

Hey Guys!!


Yes! Exactly Fanfiltration/ Ridge Shark hit it right on the nail. The scene described above is not on the DVD deleted scenes section, and there are several alternate angles and a fewmore shots of the Shark. It is fully edited also.

Exactly! This is why I am putting this out there, it is the way growing up some of us remember it!

These TV cuts happended in the days before we could purchase videos for cheap and way before DVD, for some of us it was the only way to see a movie like this.

One of the next DVD TV cut I will put out there may be the JAWS TV CUT, there is two of them, the original and the re-airings, the original was edited diferent.

Greetings everyone!!! I stumbled across this forum doing a search on Jaws related info. I remember this TV cut and infact used to have it before my VCR went and ate the tape on me!! Mitch have you transfered this to DVD or made a torrent of it? I'm interested in getting ahold of a copy for the collector's value. Are you going to transfer the Jaws airings as well? I'm interested in the original as I have the 25th Anniversary reairing and I heard the original includes more added footage.

What's your email address?

Did you ever get around to the TV cuts of the original Jaws as well? I have the ABC version from the 25th anniversary, but I heard the version aired in the 80s incorporated more of the footage.
