Discussion in 'Battlestar Galactica & Caprica' started by Ethros, Mar 15, 2009.
I pretty clearly heard fucking.
It's "fuck", I know it's "fuck" because it didn't cause me to roll my eyes as the use of "frak" continues to do to this day.
It is amazing how much discussion has gone into that line. Just Google the question and you get an explosion of results about that one scene and the word. Still of the persuasion that it was just a mumbled "fraking" and it came out a little wrong because of his accent. (and captions say 'fraking') I mean really this is the guy that demanded the secrets of the "Oprah House." If someone is really serious (which seems to be the case considering the unbelievable amount of threads on this) why don't they download Audible, isolate his voice and slow it down?
I rewound the DVR and listened to it about 10 times. It certainly was close-The first time I heard it I thought he said fuck, but on repeat listening it sounds like he said Frak.
ask the frakking FCC
Maybe Baltar said "fruk"?
Just for the record, being cable, we'll at least be spared that prolonged and unnecessary agony and instead this is just an amusing flub (or not depending how your ears work).
PTC will suicide themselves at FCC headquarters
So its just plain sloppy then. Spittle perhaps.
It's definitely "frakking".
I'd love to see the reverse scene on "Caprica," where people are watching a Caprican sci-fi show, and one of the characters actually says "frak" on national television. The Caprican internet goes wild!
Jack Thompson as some evil white guy.
No mistake (or otherwise), it's definitely frakking.
In the Razor pre-release screener, Kendra Shaw used "fucking" in the scene with the rifle drill. It was clear as a fucking bell.
They cleaned it up in ADR for broadcast, and the commercial DVD.
If it slipped through, there would be a clumsy dub in subsequent airings.
In the episode where Baltar gets his head scanned by Doc Cottle, and interrupts it repeatedly, I could swear I heard Cottle say FUCK instead of FRACK.
Has anyone noticed this too?
Yes, I am positive Cottle says "fuck" in that episode. No doubts about it.
For "Daybreak" though, it's clear he was about to say fuck and managed to salvage it as "fruk" instead, lol.
You know, this isn't the first time we thought we heard something we didn't. In the mini, people heard Tigh say "Jesus", when in fact he was really saying "Gee, Zeus"!
The episode was shown on UK tv last night. First thing I did this morning was to search 'Galactica Baltar fucking'. So here we are. To English ears listening to an English actor speaking English, it sounded a lot like 'fucking'. It still sounded like 'fucking' when I paused and replayed it.
^ Actually the episode in question is Daybreak pt.1, which aired on Sky1 last Tuesday
On this note, at the beginning of "Resurrection Ship, Part I," when the Vipers are all jousting at each other, I could swear it sounds like Hotdog says, "Fucking frakkers!" over the radio. Which, in addition to being an FCC violation, makes no logical sense as a phrase.
