Right then, and sorry if I sound like a git, but I have some questions regarding a show that I have lately started to watch via the internet called Skins. Love it, BTW. (yeah, I know, day late and a dollar short) Not looking for plot breakdown, who's who, what's what or any of that. My question is more basic and goes like this: Did this show air on regular TV in the UK? If yes, then is the language level representative of what one can expect to hear in UK TV? If the answers are yes, then: What is the general consensus in the UK concerning the use of heavy language in non-premium channel broadcasts? Is it a non-subject? Is it a cause for debate? Is there conversation about the conversation? I ask because most American network programming is devoid of this kind verbiage and I can still remember being shocked when I started to hear words like ass and dick and no one was talking about a donkey or a fellah named Richard. School me. I am an empty cup.
