The end of the "extended" version had an Apted voice over that said they'd check back in "two years" and the original was shot in late 2001, as you can clearly tell in the extended version of the show, which features a Manhattan couple who returned, or tried to, from their honeymoon on September 11. Their apparent was two blocks from the World Trade Center. Powerful stuff. I'm really surprised they didn't include them in "theater" version (my understanding is that the 2 hr. version will appear in European theater release).
It is kind of hard to wait that long for the next chapter, but it is REAL real life, unlike the manipulated "reality TV" Americans are used to.
My hubby and I (married five years, together seven) played the "who will last" game too (cruel, but true). He was also rooting for the ex-con, but I think that's one probably already over, with all the history and baggage that couple had (wouldn't be surprised if they're the couple that disappears--Apted always seems to lose a few of his subjects in-between shoots). I also think the odds are quite slim for the Latino couple. He's bringing way too much into the marriage with two kids, one of whom isn't even his biologically, and as a widower there's a whole other set of problems to deal with. The women just didn't seem prepared--they'd known each other only a few months--for the reality of that life. I also didn't like the odds on the Southern society belle. Again, haven't known each other long enough and she seems way more concerned about the wedding than the marriage.
