    Anyone else notice the abrupt cut to commercials during the scene where Macky was threatening to cut a suspect's throat? As soon as the knife broke the skin, and you could tell there was blood, they cut to commercial...hmmm. Was this intentional? It just doesn't seem like good editing if it was...

    There's probably still a limit to what you can show on basic cable...

    Gotta say what a fantastic show the shield is when you root on the bad guy who clearly should be punished. Great tv! [​IMG]

    The commercials are cut in really close on just about everything FX runs. Don't think it is censorship at all, just sloppiness and maybe an atte,pt to squeeze out a little more commercial time.
