is anyone watching chan 4 x rated the tv they tried to ban its well funny ave a look its not jus bout porn they even go on bout things like gordon ramsey its everthing the miserable pple complain about
ok so far im not bothered by any of it apart from the animal sex i agree completely with the complaints on that one i know if they actually showed that on tv and u saw someone having sex with an animal i WOULD complain but everything else dont bother me
Will have to stir a bit, otherwise I'll lose my perv reputation :lol:
I watched it from start to finish and thought is was cleverly done. I'll be honest that when I moved over to the UK, I was shocked to see how repressed things were on the telly.
I'm not a person who swears too much, apart for a laugh with mates, or when watching football :wink:
I don't get offended by swearing, unless when they come from children. My boy would never swear in front of me or any adults. And if he hears me swearing, he reprimends me. To be quite honest, I think it's fine as long as there is a purpose, it's not a matter of being offensive, but that chef (forgot his name) who used the F word 84 times during a program, it doesn't trouble me, he was under pressure, and it was just like a BB thing. That other bloke Shaun, who swore a few times on tea time shows, IMO is a big [email protected], because clearly all he wants is to show off as a bad boy and try to get presenters in trouble :?
Later I'll give my opinion about other stuff on the program :wink:
I know what you mean, I was just pointing out that it's a bit different when you see people swearing at their place of work in moments he even forgets he's being filmed, and a bloke who has been warned he should not swear because it's a tea time live program, and he does it on purpose to cause the present to get the sack :wink:
But I agree that Gordon is way ott, not only about his swearing, but the lack of respect he shows for his staff.
Actually it was a nice program. The aim was to show how channels tried and pushed the boundaries through the years, and the reaction of viewers to taboo subjects as swearing, sex, racism, bizarre and freak shows, etc, on telly.
As a foreigner, I really enjoyed it because it helps understanding the culture of the country.
For instance, swearing for me sounds a lot different to the rest of native speakers. Words such as the C word (highly offensive by the british standards), for me sounds just like another swear word. However if I heard the same word in my own language spoken on a tv program back home, that would sound a bit too much.
By the way, I came to realise that we probably don't swear half as much as british do, specially with the advent of the F word which is widely used everywhere by people of all ages.
On the other hand, when it comes to sex, there are big differences. Most of the nudity I've seen in british television were in open channels (Channel 4 and 5 to be accurate). In Brazil you don't get as half as much sex on an open channel, however if you have cable tv you can easily subscribe to hardcore channels 24/7.
I was really upset when I got here and learned that hardcore was forbidden on british telly even in PPV channels, which sounds ludricrous. I bet the same MP's who vote these retrograde laws are the same that have loads of DVD's come from europe or america, so it's a big hypocrisy.
It's not a perv thing oddly enough, it's just that most people consume sex one way or another. Show me a man that doesn't like porn and I'll show you a liar. Adn women, although don't necessarly have the same likes, they still consume a huge chunk of the porn market.
So, even being considered a perv by some, I don't have any subscribtion of channels such as Playboy or TV X, because the stuff they show there for me is more of a turn off than a turn on.
