Question: What is the reason for all of the Iodine in the shrimp and if it makes people that sick, why would they put it in there?
Question: When the Beast lets Belle go and she goes back home with her sick father, and "proves" to the village that there really is a Beast via the magic mirror, and Gaston and his posse invade the Beast's castle - How did the anthropomorphic objects and the Beast know that Belle didn't *send* Gaston to kill the Beast? I mean, we know Belle hates Gaston, but the objects and Beast don't know that. For all they know, Belle could have said to Gaston, "There's this beast, and he was keeping me in his castle, and he thinks I like him but I've been faking it."
Question: There is a short scene with a group of African-American youths on a staircase playing this dice game where they throw the dice and take money, or something along those lines. This game has been featured in many other films. What is this game called, and what exactly do you do in it?
Question: In the final few scenes of this story, DS Beck has abducted David Harvey and has taken him to the top of a tower block in order that they can both leap off. Fitz and Penhaligon race to the top to try to talk Beck out of it. In the original broadcast on UK TV (1995), Fitz speaks with Beck at length on the rooftop (as in the novel), but in all repeats and subsequent VHS/DVD releases this scene is missing and has never been seen since. Now, Fitz only manages to reach the rooftop as Penhaligon is looking over the side after Beck has jumped pulling Harvey with him. Is this scene un-cut on the Region 1 DVD of this show? (I don't want to buy it just to find the same cut version again). (02:25:00 - 02:26:45)Chimera
Question: I watched the original version and have recently watched the director's cut. Unless I'm missing something, I couldn't notice any difference between the two. Was the difference really that subtle, or was the director's cut no different from the theatrical release? And if so, why label it the director's cut?
