Censorship on TV

Ok this kind of ties into my last post. I was watching one of my favorite movies on TV the other night Aliens. Now one thing is Ive seen this movie so many times since I was little and it first came out I pretty much know all the lines in it.

Now I often like to watch movies like this simply to see what the censor and how they cesor it. Replaceing fuck with freak shit with shoot damn with darn you know the drill right. Well listen this ok.

Aliens has actaully ALOT of profanity in it ok and some of them are as follows or at least thats what the considered profanity

Damn it
God damnit
jesus Christ

Ok now All of the Fucks said in the movie where censored which is a given in any movie on TV most of the time.

Shit however was alittle different. They only censored maybe half of them why god only knows.

Bullshit was not censored at all PERIOD hmm odd

Damn it most of the time was not censored either

God damnit on the other hand was sometimes half censored takeing out the "god" part or completely censored

Jesus Christ or christ was like fuck completely censored.

Oh yea BITCH wasnt censored either

What I dont understand is why half of them are censored and half of them are not..or why damnit is ok but the "god" part isnt (granted its a curse but still it seemed alittle biased more on the fact that the word god was said)

Jesus Christ has always been censored when said as a curse but one instance they only censored the Christ part not the jesus part...exsplain to me where the logic is in this please?

This is why I think censorship is stupid. Most of these "kids" that they are trying to keep this from...hear it from thier parents on a daily basis anyway...but the fact is its just a word...I remember being sent to the princables office in forth grade for saying "shit" on the playground. Who did I hear it from or learn it from.. my mother... My dad never really cussed that much but my mom was a regular
But I do sometimes find the censorships in themselves very entertaining...it makes the movie sound funny because we all know that people dont curse like that

I love the candy ass ways they censor movies, just to be played on regular TV. Sometimes, they tkae the whole word out, and you just have a sentence like, "I'm gonna kick the **** outta that son of a bitch."

Or, and, this made me laugh, but they replace the word with something that doesn't fit. Me, Myself, And Irene was played on regular TV, and everytime someone said "motherfucker," it was replaced by "mamma jamma." Three three black guys on this movie said that all the time on this station.

"Mamma jamma, what are you saying?"

"I'm doing my mamma jammin' homework."

Hey, it gets better. In Utah, LDS shops sell edited movies. So that kids don't hear the bad words. What many fail to realize is that kids hear these words all the time form their parents. I know I did. Not a day would pass that I didn't hear a "fuck" or a "shit" or a "goddamn." Every bad habit I have, I picked up from one of my stepdads.

Come into my realm! You aren't afraid...are you?

dasher, do you know they had to reshoot scenes for the edited version of Repo Man, as even once they dubbed the profanity and took out scenes the censors said no to, it was way too short. I would love to see another special edition DVD of the movie, but with both versions of the movie.

Censorship is weird and it varies from station to station, even on cable. While you can say bitch on soap operas and the networks allow it in primetime, the Sci-Fi channel will bleep the word. South Park did the shit episode, where there was a counter to keep track of how many times it was said. Yet other stations will bleep it out.

I've always found it odd that cable stations are censored. Yes, it's only basic cable, where you don't need the box, but don't most televisions in this country have the V-chip installed, that parents can program? Especially when prime time on the networks allows various words that cable stations bleep?
