    When it was first announced BVHE was releasing Osbournes season 1 in separate censored and uncensored versions, many people (myself included) weren't too happy with that news because we wanted the option of which way to listen to it (without having to buy both sets). Well, DVDFile posted their review of the set this morning, and in their discussion of the set's supplements, they state:

    I found this out last night and was sooooooooooo happy!!!! With the problem of deciding betweenn sets eliminated, I quickly placed my order at DVD Empire. 18 days seems like an eternity.

    Having only seen the show uncensored on CTV here in Canada, I'm curious to see this show with the expletives deleted.

    I can't imagine that the conversation about how Kelly's sister booked her for a gynecologist apointment without telling her would make any sense at all.

    I find it funnier with censoring. You do miss a few words like the nickname for one of Kelly's boyfriends. What was that anyway?

    I agree that the censored version is a better choice. I found the uncensored a chore to watch. You can have too much bad language, it seems!

    The show's charm lies partially in the bleeps. I like having both options available.

    I don't see what is charming about censorship. It's not like it's an artistic decision, it was done soley for MTV as it aired everywhere else unaltered. I don't hear anyone asking for bleeped tracks on standup comedy from Robin Williams or George Carlin!

    How about a bleeped version of Al Pacino's Scarface???? Yeah, I'd buy that!

    Aaron, you're right...many times the bleeps are so intrusive that you can barely follow the conversation. You're lucky to live in Canada which isn't as restrained when it comes to language.

    It's not really censorship, considering most of the time you know what they're saying.

    There are only a few words you can't say on TV in America at all (it's a social thing, not a government thing). Ironically, they've been said mostly on network television. Basic cable stations (like MTV) don't put curses in their shows, even though they're allowed to.

    And MTV is the company who made the show, so if they air the show on their network in their native county with bleeps, I consider it to be fine. Especially when the amount of bleeps used in the show is part of the comedy.

    Nice.

    Nothing was funnier than watching Mallrat's on the USA network (I think, or maybe it was TNN or something) a couple of weeks ago.

    Jay's voice dubbed over %90 of the time by someone else.. heheh.. funny stuff.

    I think the bleeps are funny in the way that the bleeps are in funny in South Park.

    But I will definately buy the uncensored to get the option. [​IMG] Cool news!

    Why are they putting out a separate censored version anyway? Makes about as much sense as the 4 versions of American Pie II.

    Jesse, it's Disney. They probably think families with small kids sit around the TV everyday watching the Osbournes. They wouldn't like the uncensored version. [​IMG]

    Uh, so if they don't wanna hear the bad language, why can't they just select the censored track instead of buying a separate disc that doesn't have the uncensored track? I don't get it.

    With Soth Park, the episode "It Hits the Fan" wouldn't make sense without bleeps. And the bleeps there wouldn't make sense unless the other episodes had them. So South park has to be censored.

    Possible just a personal preference, but I find it hilarious when a character goes on a long diatribe that ends up being 1 big 30 second bleep.
