On the before-last three episodes (get it?) of my new favorite series, The Tudors, the word “f*cking” (I don’t swear) was dropped. In the last one I saw, twice, actually. There was also a mentioning of “cock” and “piece of sh*t” (notice the one I didn’t censor). Although that last one was directed at a french person, which milds it a bit… And – not that this botheres me, but it belongs to the same point – there were homosexual relations and a black man sitting in the kings entourage.
And all I’m thinking is: come on people, for christ’s sake, this is taking place around 1530! There will be no foul language in my picture of the 16th century, goddammit!
