    I noticed this on AMC, used to notice also on A & E...

    During "The Boys from Company C" yesterday on AMC, they were muting the bad language, but it was there in the CC for all to read.

    I've seen this several times on AMC, and it makes me wonder...

    This post is in no way intended to be derogatory, seriously...

    Just another of those disconnects that proliferate, the more "choice" we're subjected to.

    Haha! Didn't know that. I'll be sure to turn on the CC when I'm watching a dirty movie.

    Subtitles are surprisingly expensive to do. I suspect that they are done once for the DVD/VHS release (which of course will be the uncensored version) and then bought in for screening with the movie when shown on the TV (in many cases the censoring is done by the TV company - at least that's the case in the UK).

    I'm hard of hearing and Id say I have good morals but could care less about swearing.
