I recall reading somewhere (probably a Mark Frost interview or something) that the atomic bomb idea actually was something that had been floating around since the FWWM days or maybe was an idea for the season 3 that would have happened back then if the show wasnt cancelled. obviously back then it wouldn't have been anywhere near what it was in episode 8, it probably might have just been a non-portrayed bit of backstory exposition or something (like major briggs giving another character a history lesson or something). but there was at least a bit of an idea there. I also heard from Frost that most of the ideas they had for season 3 back in the day that were still viable, considering how much time had passed, they tried to use in the real season 3, or developed and built on into what season 3 became.
I also liked seeing the extra footage with the various actors who got cut from the movie. of course none of that stuff adds anything to the movie. it's just nice to see them.
The movie's edit was basically as close to as perfect as it could possibly be. So I don't really have any qualms about what was cut. but if the movie was able to be maybe 15-30 minutes longer with just the best missing pieces scenes added back in that would have been nice. but it's one of my favourites either way.
