Watched a 1983 special on cable about the words you cannot say on TV! Dated now as they showed it on TV! Also Deadwood says so many swear words you wonder if it is not overdoing it!
Carlin made the point that TV shows are all about fucking, but you cannot use the word fuck. While TV is a fart free zone both for the word and indicating the action. Not true for showing Blazing Saddles or again an episode of Deadwood I just saw starts out with a kid farting in the stage coach!
Not sure if we are better or worse off with the new grossness accepted in our society. Part of the TV pandering to the younger demographic.
