Funniest Show On TV?,
This review is from: The Ricky Gervais Show - Season 2 [DVD]  (DVD)
The Ricky Gervais Show finally returns to DVD-
13 more episodes of the only show on TV that I find so consistently funny that I honestly cant't catch my breath for laughing so hard.
That makes it well worth owning. Season 2 is just as good as Season 1 and I cant wait to see new episodes- a brilliant animated series.

Is any of the bad language bleeped or cut out on this version? When I saw it on TV in the US, there were multiple uses of the 'C' word, but apparently there is only one in this DVD? Did the distributors cut some of them out to get a 15 rating?

Hi there, the 'C' word is used twice unbleeped.
This was the first time I watched season 2, so I don't know if any language was cut, but there's definately no bleeping(thankfully!)

Hmm there was definitely more than two I remember. Maybe it has been edited somehow? I was gonna get the US release, might be good to compare. I know the BBFC didnt cut it but maybe Warner precut it in case? But thanks for your quick reply, helpful stuff mate!

Yeah sometimes filmmakers cut films to get a lower (usually a 12A) rating, for example. I know the The Hole was cut down before BBFC submission, removing violence and a C word. But the BBFC also can demand cuts to pass a film if the company want a lower rating. Happens loads (Fast and Furious, The Spirit, Welcome to the Jungle). List goes on and on! But yes, to get back on topic, it would be a shame if they compromised the UK version of this to get a 15. His Fame DVD was a 15 and that had a lot of bad language. Apologies for the rambling - its something I have an interest in!

One last thing and i'll let ya go lol!
The 12A rating has been the worst thing thats happened to the movie industry in years! Every film aims for it(to increase audience/profit)
and it holds certain films back!

Its definitely an annoyance for those of us who want uncut versions, but multiregion players are cheap now so you can always import em. Plus, many US Blu-rays are Region Free now. But the good thing in the UK now isw, that uncut films are often put out on DVD in higher-rated "unseen" or "uncut" versions - but not always. The Woman in Black has been passed uncut with a 15 for home video but its yet to see a release. Bummer!
