Fine by me. Not swearing on TV after 10pm is silly. If you're up at 10pm and watching TV, you've already heard these words. Swearing too much is silly too, unless it's South Park.

I'm completely sold on this show now. Kim Delany is an absolutely incredible actress. The writing's pretty good ... each episode is unique, and the situations aren't overly dramatic. It's powerful television without trying to parade around acting powerful. I've loved 'The Practice' from day one, but it always seemed a little too melodramatic to the point where after a few years, I had trouble believing the stories. With 'Philly' they just tell the story. No big surprise endings or anything ... just good solid television. Wonderful program so far.

didn't really bother me, like I sadi I heard the stuff on nypd blue, but for some reason hearing them say dick like that was a shock. I didn't watch the show though, I watched the tape of that 70's show and undeclared as I watched Jag at 8, but I caught the intro after spin city as the tape was rewinding

NYPD Blue went from "pr*ck" to "d*ckhead" and then finally direct references to "d*cks" last season.

Why does it feel so good to have people cursing on TV?
