The Lucas commentary here is different than the one on the Kino Blu:
I should take this opportunity to point out that my two DESTINY commentaries are different recordings. They worked from the same basic original script, but each includes its own unique reading and sync, and each includes a portion of unique material. It's probably not enough to make anyone but the most ardent collector buy both versions, but it is not accurate to say that Kino and Eureka! share the same commentary. It was done more for technical than content considerations. When I did the Kino recording, it was my first experience using a new microphone, which I was still figuring out. It caused some - shall we say - anomalies in my first attempt. I really wanted to improve on that, this being such an important title, but I didn't want to devalue to original attempt so it has some passages that can be found only there.
