    Started to get into T2 tonight on channel 5. Until the 'I want your clothes, your boots and your motorcycle' scene in the bar. Cigar stubbed on Arnies chest. Arnie grabs and twists bloke's arm.<br />Then turns round and grabs tatooed bloke and throws him through the window. WHAT?! Cut out was the bloke whacking Arnie round the back of the head with the Pool cue.<br />Stupid, pointless cut. Turned over in disgust.<br />To the World's most scarey police chases or some other crud on Sky one. With fake 'as it happens alarmed comments' dubbed in.<br />At least there's Blazing Saddles on Movies Gold.

    Isn't that the same version of T2 that the BBFC allowed us to see on video as a 15 many years ago?

    You'd think that now that it's been passed uncut as a 15 for DVD release the tv companies would get their acts together.

    At least you didn't suffer the Lethal Weapon 'TV' version as screened many times before.<br />Infuriating is all I can say.<br />Nanny state.

    Cutting a pool cue strike, is less harmful than watching a man blast off a zillion bullets, from a portable mini gun normally found in a US strike aircraft? Hmmmmmmmm?

    The huge 5 logo at the top of the screen was a pain too!

    Well Pan & Scan in a 16x9 frame is bad enough I saw a little while channel hopping.

    Channel 5 need their broadcast licence pulling

    I have watched about 10 hours at most since they started broadcasting.

    Taped an early show - didn't watch it due to moron logo in corner.

    Waste of a channel position

    Also BBC and ITV I hate BBC Choice, Knowlege, News24 and ITV2 logos - THEY ARE MORONIC like their channel heads.

    Over here in Spain they dont seem to bothered about watersheds and such like, you can often get films on at five in the afternoon with sex & violence!!

    We even have hardcore porn on at the weekends, tends to be about 2 in the morning and mostly on the local tv stations.

    Cant say i´ve ever noticed them cutting scenes out, maybe i´ve havent been looking hard enough!

    cheers
