I think Daz will be able to answer this more accurately as I've left the comparison to him and others, but basically what you miss from the US version is the majority of the intro and outro videos which were on the individual UK episodes. There are also certain sequences - like one with space mines, Lamia driving under attack on the moon, a Dai X take off, Shiro training etc that seem to have been cut for running length from the US videos. Certainly Daz's tapes are the closest ones that I know of (although I haven't watched them myself) to the UK version of the series. At the end of the day it's that version we'd like to see back on our screens, but I never managed to get a clear reply from Enoki on whether that UK version still exists. I've got some UK episodes myself, but not all of them.
