Well, exactly, that was the source of my bafflement.

Fair enough. That explains it.

I was very confused. It was “How to Get Away with Murder”. Obviously it’s my account, not kids’. It was a scene where Annalise said something like “Let’s screw these mother****ers” and the latter was silenced by a bleep and, weirder still, the screen went pitch-black for that split second.

They obviously understand that the broader the reach, the more people watch. Hence no risks, creative freedom, my ass. I do pole dancing classes with the U.K. head of content at Netflix and she shares.

Huh? Isn't Netflix supposed to give their creators more free reign??
Yeah, right.

Exactly. Glad someone gets it. So ****ing annoying. Bad enough that adult characters facing the prospect of going to jail use the word “freaking” because ABC don’t have the balls to inject some verisimilitude into plot. But to use the word and bleep it out is just mental.

The infantilisation drive for you...
