I wonder what goes through the censor guy's head sometimes. What is going through his mind as he watches movies that are about to air on TV, so he can decide what parts need to be chopped off, and what parts need to be bleeped out? I often wonder if his head is in the right place? Or whether he has a boss that actually double checks if the censor guy is doing his job right? Or even whether he has a manual he can refer to once in a while, to check if he's doing the right job?
I was just watching Someone like you on One TV (for the 5th time at least....no I am not obsessed by the movie, I don't even think it's all that good, but I did rent it once and always end up catching it again either on TV or on a plane or something) and there is one part where Ashley Judd's character (Jane) realizes that men are actually like animals and can't be monogamous or something like that...And suddenly, she screams out: "holy sh*t!".
But of course, given that this is One TV we're talking about, it's censored. No surprise there.
You'd think that it's the word "sh*t" that's edited out.
Think again. It's the word "Holy" that's chopped off. Go figure!
I understand that because of religious sensitivities, the word "Holy" should not be used in a derogatory manner. But censor man could at least have made the effort to edit out the word "sh*t" as well don't you think?
