    I liked it last night but I'm amazed Sky didn't bleep a couple of C words that I swear I heard.

    Hi,

    This show did indeed include strong language, and was aired uncut, just as they do with "Deadwood"!

    $ky have adopted an 8pm ("...not 9...") watershed. If it's robust language you're after, try Deadwood.
    Excellent. :clap:

    Hi Jon,

    Sorry, but you're wrong. OFCOM have dicatated that ther satellite channels can air 15-certificate material from 8pm, (not Sky!), provided channels can be PIN-locked by parents, if they wish to stop younger viewers from accessing certain material.

    8pm has been the agreed time that Sky can show slightly more adult material, but nothing that would be rated higher than a 15 canbe aired, and only then, provided the material isn't too contentious. However, between 10pm and 5:30am, pretty much anything with an 18 certificate can be shown.

    Just thought I should clarify that! :lesson:

    Missed both eps:(

    Realised too close to the airtime that the series links for other stuff would intrude so added the repeat to the planner:)

    Good to know the show is uncut, makes the wait worthwhile although the radio adverts were getting on my nerves!

    I really liked this show. Aside the language and sexual content, I also thought it was quite unique in current affairs / cultural references, such as the Tsunami and Tivo'ing The Shield and other current TV shows. I hope it maintains its initial quality.

    Missed this too.

    So, looking at the replies would you recommend this as a show to watch?

    Without doubt, it's certainly not the norm, all the better for it.

    I enjoyed it, will be interesting to see how it continues.

    I felt I'd seen the lead star before in something, but looking on IMDB none of the film/TV series rang a bell with me. So many I think she looks like someone else.

    She was in quite a few episodes of the West Wing, playing Josh's gf.

    Ah ha! That's it - thanks for that. Didn't scroll down far enough on IMDB to see the guest appearance section.

    It was repeated last night on Mix, so I'm pretty sure it'll be on over the weekend. Be mindful that they showed two episodes, not just the first, when looking for it.
