    Dave,
    no way was this a personal attack on you
    I appreciate all you do in bringing the 'Weekly Roundup' info to this forum
    Just wanted to make sure the facts were stated as clear as possible

    1) none of the audio (profanity included) is bleeped out
    2) nothing is compromised when it comes to blurring ...3 incidents: 2 most likely related to legal release issues and the third involving the genetalia of one of the hosts of the show
    3) when people complaining about 'censorship' actually pick up and view this set themselves they will see they are making much to do about nothing.

    again Dave, no need to appologize...
    I may have read your statement the wrong way in that is sounded like you already had the set since your disclaimer was very descriptive (down to the 'goodies' under the packaging [​IMG] ) and I did not want people to continue to falsely believe they were being cheated out of something here.

    ps. I own the R1 version of "Eyes Wide Shut" [​IMG]

    I want to see it how the audience sees it, uncensored.

    I can understand if some of the nudity is blurred out due to contract issues or wavers that didn't get signed, but there has to be some T&A on the DVD's.

    It's called "The Man Show" for crying out loud, not "The Boy Show". TV-14? Come on, make it R and give us MEN what we want, full frontal, uncensored nudity and cursing.

    I'm with ya Darrell! Making us feel like perverts because we don't like the censored nudity is a bizarre argument to make.

    The target audience for this show is mostly perverted men who want to see nude women. Are there really people who buy this set, and then get offended by uncensored nudity????

    And who cares if its original tv broadcast was 'censored'...I highly doubt that there are many out there that don't have a "Directors Cut" of somethings somewhere in their DVD collection.

    Maybe they should give the dvd a new title:

    The Man Show: The pussy-whipped version your wife will let you see

    It may be the case that there really isn't much to blur out in this release, and it's nothing we might want to see anyway, but I know from watching the show that there's plenty of times that good stuff is being blurred out, and I tell you, I don't think they're wearing little patches when they tape it. Nor do I think the girls they get to come and strip in the studio usually get much choice over whether it can ever be released in any other form. Those network and studio contracts tend to be pretty iron-clad in the studios favor with complete control maintained over the footage. It is probably released at their discretion.
    I would specifically be disappointed if something like the Invisible Bathing Suit were still blurred, whenever the set with that is released.

    Hopefully by the time they get to this last season, they will be uncensored. How bout that episode where Jimmy was a Playboy photographer? Now that deserves to be on DVD UNCENSORED.

    I was trying to find this today. Went to Costco and C.C. and nothing. First Midnight Run is impossible to find and now this. Any one know where they have plentiful copies of this?

    Will, Best Buy has it advertised in this week's circular, so they should have at least a few copies at each of their stores (assuming they haven't sold out yet). Also, FYE would probably be a good place to check if you have one by you and don't mind paying more for it.

    KERIST PEOPLE. I compared the DVD's to the original broadcasts (that I had archived on SVCD before I got a DVD-Recorder)..

    NOTHING HAS BEEN 'CENSORED' FROM THE ORIGINAL BROADCAST.

    Same private parts blurred/pixelated out. Was was 'obscured then is obscured now'. No where on the box does it say UNCENSORED (see: Insomniac).

    As, as I saw questioned somewhere else, in 'Bets/Zembic' the guy with the breast implants were NOT blurred on the orginal broadcast, they had round band-aids over the nipples (why is is offensive to show a man's nipples???)

    Damn. I was hoping to see my favorite juggy, Vanessa, in the buff. [​IMG]
    I bought the set anyway, because I enjoy the show.

    No argument required.

    A movie with boobs is better than the same show without boobs.

    nuff said,

    although there are a few exceptions when showing boobs would just be nasty!
