***

 All the episodes on the MFM SEASON 2 DVD are complete and uncut!

For the My Favorite Martian Season 2 DVD, Rhino Home Video obtained 4 "time-compressed" episodes, Dreaming Can Make It So, Nothing But the Truth, Extra, Extra-Sensory Perception and Never Trust a Naked Martian. The packaging states that these are "shortened syndicated versions", which led to some confusion among fans. But those 4 episodes do not have any scenes cut out. Their running time is slightly shorter due to the compression process used in syndication, but the shows are intact.
