Hi,
This may be a bit old-news for you lot, as I'm calling from
"Across the Pond", but The CW (a US network) is currently showing
the Channel 4 comedy "Dead Pixels", and I'm curious to know if
the original is as heavily bleeped as it is here! Are "f**k"s
and so on allowed on the air in the UK, or are they bleeped in
the original too? Anybody watch it?

Thanks,
-- Pete --

Yes, after the 9pm watershed and especially on Channel4

Ahh! Good to know... The heavy bleeping acually detracts from
the flow of the show, as it can conceal more than just the swearing.

Thanks,

I just realised my reply was ambiguous, I should have said "no it's not
bleeped at all" and "yes all the swearing is allowed on air"

No problem...! (:-)) I understood exactly that!

Have watched both series and there is indeed no bleeping here.
