    I thought I had seen all of the unintentional comedy on broadcast tv when it comes to curse words..........until last night.........

    FX played The Wolf of Wall Street.

    You absolutely cannot show a movie like that on broadcast tv. It set the record for the number of times the word "fuck" is used in a movie.

    Movies like that, Goodfellas and Full Metal Jacket should never be shown on regular television.

    The greatest line in the history of replacement dialogue for TV broadcast.

    I know the movie. I hadn't heard of the editing move.

    Best one I remember is "mickey fickey" on Do The Right Thing.

    Last night, Tyler Skaggs returned to pitch for the Angels after a two-year recovery from TJ surgery. His parents were in the stands after flying in from Santa Monica to KC. They sent the TV guy to interview the mom during the game. He asked her when they arrived and what they did that afternoon. Mom says, "We got in around 2:30 and went to his hotel room. We just sat around and shot the shit." Live TV.

    No, cable TV networks should stop stupid censoring like that. Just bleep it... or don't censor at all.

    As a side note (or potentially a separate thread) ... the two movies that I have seen that changed the most from original to cable are The Bad News Bears and Grease. I know I'm not the only parent who sat down with the kids for some good family baseball fun and soon heard Tanner Boyle talking about the "Jews, spics and niggers." Ditto with Rizzo thinking she was about to be part of a gang-bang.
