Is Australia getting longer episodes? (General)

Boldspoon, 10/17/2020, 6:51PM (11 days ago)

Ever since the return of the soap in July, CBS and Youtube have stopped uploading the bonus scenes. But on the australian site the episodes are still 22 minutes long. (against 19 minutes on CBS.com) Are other countries still airing these bonus clips or have the writers decided to stop filming them? If there are australian viewers here, could you compare the 2 versions and see if the 10play version is longer?

I have another question. Is there still a way to download the SAP episodes? CBS stopped uploading them around May 2019, when Xander/Zoé learn the truth about Beth. Do you know if they stopped dubbing the episodes in Spanish or not? Thank you.

I have seen some bonus scenes posted on Twitter. They were from a few weeks ago. Not sure if they're still doing them.

Isn't Australia a few months behind, with the episodes?

On CBS the bonus clips are never included and I don't bother to watch them on Youtube. Maybe with all the social distancing rules, they decided to make shorter episodes and stop making bonus scenes

No Australia is only a few days behind on episodes aired on TV and not behind at all on the channel 10 website episodes (10play). They are still making extra scenes and including them in the Australian episodes but not making them available on the CBS website for whatever reason. This last weeks episodes I have no idea which scenes they could possibly cut for the US episodes... hopefully they were all Zoe/Carter ones.

Hi, Aussie here. Yes we are getting longer episodes. Australia is only a few days behind on shows aired on TV and not behind at all on the 10play app and website (we get fast tracked episodes a few hours after it airs in the US). Australia has always had the 'bonus scenes' included in the episode that's aired. That is still happening but the extra scenes aren't being made available on the CBS website like they used to be.

I have noticed that every time I read on here that the spoilers were 'wrong' and 'that didn't happen'... a lot of the time it happens in the scene that was cut. For example, the spoiler that said Liam is stunned that Hope kept Kelly happened in the scene that was cut. I'm sure my other fellow aussies can confirm.

Hope this helps. :-)

They don`t specifically film bonus scenes to be bonus scenes, they are just scenes that were cut from the episodes in the US to give more time for commercials. In my country in Europe we get the full episodes, ”bonus scenes” as part of the episodes like they were meant to be. This I think causes the cases in which people claim that ”this never happened” when others say that it did.

That's incorrect, they do specifically film these scenes as bonus scenes. They are always longer than 2 minutes, which most other scenes aren't. And they are always in the same spot in the longer episodes, at the beginning of the first commercial break in the US episodes.
It would never work if the editors decided later which scene to cut, not just because of the length, but the bonus scenes also have to be comprised of redundant dialogue that doesn't advance the plot in any way. For example they often have characters share memories of the past or have a character recap a recent event to the other character in detail. But at the same time, many of those scenes also give some deeper insight into the characters' motivations and would have enriched the original episode. So it's a pity that CBS doesn't release them online anymore.
