  • Backdraft Question

    Has anyone ever watched Backdraft on the USA Network? I was watching it this past weekend and there were a couple scenes that were added to it (I assume it was for length).

    One scene is after the fire where Brian rescues the mannequin. They are over at one of their fallen brothers' house doing some work for his widow and Axe and Bull are out front talking about jobs being cut and FFs dying, etc......

    There is another scene after Tim gets caught in the backdraft where Bull is in a dorm room and the Investigator comes in telling him that he needs the fire report.......

    Anyone else ever seen them?

    I've seen those scenes, they aren't on the DVD I have. Who knows why they wouldn't let us have those on the DVD. Probably some sort of "TV Special"?

          When it first aired on TV (and a few times after that), those scenes were included. Once they started showing it over and over again, they cut them for time.
          "This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?

            I remember seeing those scenes. I would think they would be on
            the DVD.

            Also- In one of those clips, you can see the Mini-Me raiding
            the stocked station refrid. Sad...

                  yeah i noticed as well, i think they did it to put in for time lost out of the original movie due to "gross" things....

                  and 9-11, i think they took out the "fallen ff" scene on the dvd...

                    If you guys ever read.....

                    Those scenes are in the book, which is actually a modification of the screen play. I am suprised they aren't on the dvd, unless it has to do with when they (the DVD's) were made.

                      When was Backdraft released? It's probably about due for a special "Anniversary Edition" DVD release with the deleted scenes.

                      Especially if Ladder 49 is a big hit.

                          Backdraft was released in 1991 and a 2 disc 15th anniversary DVD was released in 2006.
