Mark Harmon said that very word on Chicago Hope* and I'm not aware of any huge outcry over it.

*his character was testifying before a medical review board who were demanding to know why one of his patients had to have a limb amputated. His response was, and I quote, "Shit happens."

For the record, the last line of TWD season 4 finale on the video release is "They're fucking with wrong people" instead of the aired "They're screwing with the wrong people".

Showrunner Scott Gimple noted that this would never have passed the network censors. I think the first sentence worked better and feels more natural.

Re: The Walking Dead family friendly edited version coming to Broadcas

There was an article when that was announced on one of the comic sites, and the "fuck" version of the line is a big iconic moment from the comics, so they apparently decided to do the alternate true to the comic version.

Honestly, I don't have that much of an issue with this one being edited down since it's just on AMC. They won't have to get rid of anywhere near the amount of stuff they did with The Sopranos, Dexter, or Spartacus.

I can't see them letting Rick channel his inner walker.

I was just watching Hannibal the other day and I think it is gorier and more disurbing that TWD. If they can get away with that on basic cable, I don't see too many issue coming up with TWD.

Family-friendly Walking Dead. What a concept. The Addams Family, maybe.

Has anyone watched Spartacus on SyFy? I just wonder how coherent it is since so many key scenes revolved around baths, orgies, gladiator locker rooms, and nude masquerade parties. Do they cut the scenes entirely or CGI strategically placed dick concealing tables and breast concealing hands?
I watched a little out of curiosity and it works better than it has any right to. From what I saw it was a little bit of everything, maybe a cut, a zoom, a blur, an overlay, whatever depending on the scene. Of course, I'm not even sure they cut any violence.

Can I help it that Spielberg made the most genius response to people freaking out over violence on cartoons? It works for so much!

We have a date now

On Wednesday, Oct. 1, MNT will begin airing the first four seasons -- 67 episodes -- of The Walking Dead, the AMC mega-hit. MNT has the exclusive broadcast off-net rights to the drama for at least one season.

Indeed. It was a nice shot at those watchdogs of media morality.

TWD reruns begin airing tonight on the MyNetworkTV channel!

Two episodes every Wednesday night. "Days Gone Bye" and "Guts" is scheduled to air tonight.

I will probably check it out even though I already own the dvds. It is airing from 9-11PM where I live.

You'd think they'd be able to fit two edited episodes into a one-hour slot.

Re: The Walking Dead family friendly edited version coming to Broadcas

Well I saw the episodes. They were watchable, but you'll quickly notice they were edited if you ever saw the original episodes.

The Pilot was cut to hell, but it was originally a 67 minute extended episode, so that's understandabe. The time Rick spent with Morgan felt extremely short.

The second episode was better.

I must have seen the same Geico commercial 4 times in the span of two hours though!

I might occasionally check out the later episodes on the TV if I have the time.

I saw it last night and I thought they did a good job of the editing.
