Extended, Chronological, Uncensored 'Godfather' Series Edit Now on HBO

January 18, 2016

Interested in a version of The Godfather series that promises deleted scenes, a rarely-seen chronological edit, and absolutely none of Sofia Coppola's acting? Well, then you should get yourself an HBO account before the end of January. The premium network is this month airing (and streaming online) what they've dubbed The Godfather Epic, an almost unbearably long presentation that combines The Godfather Parts I & II into a single, seven-and-a-half-hour film that shows events in chronological order and fits in some additional, previously-cut scenes. Under another title, this cut originally aired--notably, censored--on NBC in 1977, and a few years ago, you may have caught it on AMC, but this is the first time it can be seen uncensored, without commercial interruption, and on demand. It's not exactly a necessary nor definitive cut of the film, but from what I hear, totally worth it to see Sonny now get shot up at the toll booth for an extra 27 minutes.
