RE: [torchwood] Re: Language (was: SPOILERS favourite characters/actors)
- I can see why some people would be offended, but like lots of swear words
these days it's become acceptable and I have to say Torchwood is one of the
few programs on the BBC that doesn't seem to use gratuitous bad language at
all. Most people under the age of 30 in the UK seem to use it as a general
term rather than a swear word. I have to admit, it doesn't bother me it's
one of the least offensive LOL, in fact swearing on TV in general doesn't
bother me provided its after the watershed, unless it's a certain TV chef,
who's mouth I'd like to wash out with carbolic soap. And I would much
rather they used it than the F word.

Yeah, most of us Americans were probably first exposed to the term
"shagging" in movies or television, some as recently as the Austin Powers
movies. Over here, it seems to have the connotation of playful, enjoyable,
recreational sex. We'd be using the f-word (I'm not being coy, just unsure
of the allowed language level on this list) for angry or hateful reference
