Cable networks aren't regulated by the FCC. But they do rely on advertisers. They can have all the swearing they want to but they don't for fear that advertisers will back out of their shows. So they play it safe with basic cursing.

I started watching this yesterday and wasn't going to post until I'd seen the whole season, but I couldn't contain myself.

Awesome series.

Episode 6 :

This is back for a second series for 2009, which is very, very good news.

Just watched the first episode, apart from the suck aspect ratio that FX are using I thought it was fantastic.

Utterly gutted that it was cut short at episode seven. Brilliant series, can't wait for the next 13 but will probably be waiting until late 2009.

Just watched this, brilliant. 7 epsiodes was not enough. A darker version of Weeds. You just know its going to end bad for our Hero at the end of the day.
