Her Ladyship

Notes from the gutter.

A fun fact I learned recently

While attempting to suck the marrow out of my "Arrested Development" Season 2 DVD set, I turned on the cast's comments for one of the episodes. They were actually pretty funny - they had the whole cast except for Jason Bateman, Jeffrey Tambor, and Portia de Rossi.

Anyways, one of the commentators said that Fox wouldn't let them bleep out swear words but show someone's mouth forming the words. So instead, what they'd have to do is either swing around the camera or have someone turn their head slightly or something of that nature. It's done very subtly, as the whole show has a handheld camera sort of look, but now that you know they're doing it, you can see it. Ironic that Fox, of all networks, draws the line at that.
