    Generally just use the "report this post" link and ask the moderator nicely, giving what you want it to be, so they can just cut & paste. Spell everything correctly. Use good grammar. Proper punctuation. Get the dates correct. :)

    Watching Friday night's episode, it occurred to me that for the past few weeks, Syfy has stopped bleeping (silencing) profanity on the show.

    Definitely not a complaint, just an observation.

    i've noticed the same on other basic cable channels after 9pm, too. there must be a new sponsorship agreement floating around for basic cable programming after prime time, because the fcc doesn't regulate basic cable content, sponsors do.

    here's an interesting nytimes article from last year:

    Suits leads the non-premium channels in unbleeped profanity by a long shot, at least in the shows I watch.

    Last year, around August, I noticed just about every show I watch on USA start using a certain S word almost every other sentence.
    Suits being the leader for number of times.

    It died off for a while, and now it seems to be back.

    Interesting though, Closed Captioning is censoring it as SH__.

    I think it's just the new norm. About 20 years ago, they used to bleep ass and *****. Now I've heard a-hole, the s-bomb and other things on non-premium channels. Not to mention rear nudity on broadcast channels.

    Nothing has really surprised me since the first time I heard an s-bomb on Cartoon Network during their adult swim block. That was at least 5 years ago.

    Has that happened lately on an OTA show?

    Last I remember was Sharon Lawrence in the shower on NYPD Blue.

    (and she really was just as cute from the back)

    Nowadays if someone like AMC or FX warns about nudity, I figure it's just going to be some guy's seat cushion.

    Is that something only Canadians have seen so far?

    That might be so they can just redub it with certain words muted (for day-time replay) and not have to worry about re-doing the closed captioning... just a guess, however.

    Pretty sure that's the case, although that makes it inaccurate either way, and it's a disservice to the deaf -- they're not getting the same "access" to the dialogue that people who can hear are.

    I recorded South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut off CN, and it was completely unedited.

    Much better than the smaller, shorter, circumcised version, I'm sure. ;)

    Yes.

    Redo the Closed Captioning for syndication if need be, but caption the first run accurately.

    I remember reading that they had to also show them with separate beds. How things have changed!

    "mary kay and johnny" was the first sitcom to show a couple sharing a bed, and the first series to show a pregnancy on tv, 1947. it aired on dumont, then cbs, and finally nbc. i suspect the lucy and dezi "separation" and mum pregnancy had as much to do with ethnicity as standards.

    fred and wilma flintstone were the first animated couple to share a bed in prime time in 1960. lily and herman munster were next, in 1964, then came the brady's...

    My guess is the freelancers have captured all the time travelers that are the potential for messing up the time continuum. I also think Alec jumped back to save his girlfriend.
