    The Road I'm On- gets a DVD release

    https://themusicuniverse.com/lionsga...wuF6AXA5E9OMBE


    However,

    somethings off/different... the digital copies I have w/o commercials are each about 85m long.. each PART is about 85m... therefore, you're talking roughly 3 hrs 10m added together. the only way this article is accurate totally is if they are talking about only one part, or if it's a 2 DVD release... or something of that nature- a def. possibility...

    This is the info Lionsgate sent so it’s accurate. They didn’t specify it being part one, so I’d safely assume the commercials made it longer.

    Look, I'm sure it's possibly accurate.. However, knowing that there were 2 parts of 85+minutes EACH... (and yes that's after taking out the commercials- my downloads did not have commercials on them) , it is impossible that it can be a single dvd release of just shy of 90m.. not without having MAJORLY edited the broadcast down.. while I'm sure I COULD be wrong... and this could be an oversight in either your article, OR on Lionsgate's behalf.. the commercials making it longer would not make up for about doubling the length of the show.. that's simply not the case.. it can't be..

    If there’s any oversight, it’s on Lionsgate’s behalf as their press release stated the running time I published.

    I guess we'll have to see in the end where the oversight is/was (really doesn't matter totally), the running times don't match/add up is all. hey, maybe it's being released in 2 parts and the info you were given is only for part 1 ,who knows... till it arrives it's all speculation anyway

    If the whole thing is only as long as the info posted? (1h 29m I think?) then it’s def been edited.. will have to wait and see and compare

    It’s 129 minutes which translate to 2 hr 30 min

    Ehh not to nitpick

    But 60min=1 hr therefore 129m = 2h 9 min

    To be 2h30m you’re looking at 150min.

    At 85+min each part, you’d have to have a run time of about 170min at least (that accounts for commercials being out of the showing), and at your stated time of 129m either a mistake has been made in the data presented OR you’re taking about 35-40m of footage being edited out

    I did realize my math was a bit off, but I was driving and couldn't correct it before you commented. I hope it's not edited and just a guestimate by Lionsgate's part, but I guess we'll find out when it's released.

    have not found out anything concrete yet myself but if the 'info' leaked/put out there etc.. is correct, it is definitely edited down, by about half... (which is why it can't be correct IMO)

    I doubt it is edited down if anything they add bonus features so you will buy it.
    Can’t believe garth is not having this released with another project. Would not be shocked if the Fun album is not included with it

    I'd think it'd not be edited down either, which is why I am confident there's an error somewhere, either in the original article or (more likely) in the info that came from lionsgate. there's no way they can put a 2h40m (approx) special into 1 dvd show of 1h29m without cutting about half of it..

    Id love to see bonus features added... here's a question.. what would be good (and logical, and likely) (we all have desires of 'bonus things' garth wise) bonus features to include in the set?

    I would love to see a bonus feature of his two brothers telling stories of a young garth. I think it would be cool to see other family members speak about him.

    that'd def. be cool. I'd be interested to hear more from his kids/Sandy too... but def. early garth stuff... childhood friends maybe?
