In 2001, an episode of the BBC Two nostalgic documentary series "I Love 1995" had a feature on "The Usual Suspects", with some of the cast, and discussion of the plot, and the famous identity question of "Who is Keyser Söze?". The episode formed part of the 30 episode antholgy series trilogy "I love the 1970s", "I love the 1980s", and "I love the 1990s", each episode focusing on events from each year.

The editor, John Ottman, edited the movie on film. He felt that all the editing done electronically at the time was horrible because all the good editors were still working on film (which is much more difficult). Because of this he thought about putting "Edited on a piece of s*** Steenbeck" at the end of the credits, but instead settled for the more subtle line "Edited on film." Tim Robbins was directing 'Dead Man Walking' at the time and heard about John's idea, which sparked that film's credit ending of "This film was edited on old machines."
The Australian television version left the line-up scene unedited for language. However, all other scenes with strong language, such as McManus's call for payback at the discovery of Finster's body, were shortened or removed.
