    • The film The Bride
    • Pause for long Max riff on variety, entertainment, (Irishmen) and God, with a side glance at Sid Vicious, bad jokes, then mentions of the contest segment to come - "Emotional Outburst," where a lucky contestant will take home their very own country... France
    • Tennis (in golf shoes on Sting's court)
    • Hair Weaves (mentioned in some lists, not seen in currently available clips)

Notes & Commentary

The Cinemax rebroadcast used a different voiceover announcer to open the show, not used in the UK.

In the opening remarks of the Sting interview, Max's introductory comments from the prior show are reused, making the internal reference to "the last twelve weeks" anachronistic - after that show and prior to this one, it would have been "the last thirteen weeks."

The first part of the Sting interview is identical to what viewers would have seen just two weeks earlier, but then includes some new material towards the end.
