    It says in the liner notes of the region 2 DVD that all the swearing is bleeped due to th documentary style of the show. You also never see anyones mouth when they curse.

    I apologise if anyone before me has already said this, but one of the cast during a commentary of the show said they had to move their head when they swore so that it couldn't be lip read? I don't know but it was something on the lines of that. Also there was a double meaning when George Sr tried to "slip past the sensors" it was the shows writers trying to slip past the censors with Buster's line "if Mother saw this she would blow a cow" although i don't think thats the exact quote but this is all on the dvd and if I'm wrong, eh w/e no skin off my back. But enjoy the show!

    Who cares? The censorship is funny most of the time (think Kitty).

    Its funnier not hearing it because its obvious what they mean like the "I ****** Lucille 2". It wouldn't be nearly as funny hearing it. Like; Michael: I've been working out Buster you might be eating my dust Buster: Yeah well you've ****** ***** ** ******** * **** ***********. Michael: .........Well lets hope it doesn't come to that. That wouldn't be half as hilarious if you heard it.

    Very true. It wouldn't be the same thing if they included the swears. I wanna hear the show I loved, bleeps and all!

    I would like the option

    "exlcude censors" or "include censors"

    It's not quite like hearing something unbleeped, but in the episode where Buster is taking his physical to get into the military he says that "his (whispers) is shaped like a (whispers) but without a shell". But if you turn on the subtitles it shows what he really says.

    *SPOILER* His reproductive organs are shaped like a lobster, but without a shell *END SPOILER

    Highlight if you want to read it.

    I always appreciate some good swearing, but when it comes to AD, the bleeping is what makes the swearing funny.

    It is funnier hearing the bleeps because when they go on a roll of cursing it is hilarious. Buying all three seasons together is cheaper than buying them by themselves. $54.99 for 3 is $18.33 each. It is a sweet deal.

    I think it's better that they bleed out the cursing.  Generally, this makes the jokes funnier than if they just let out the cursing, I think.
