    If a show is created for family viewing, that's one thing. It doesn't bother me. But on the other hand, whenever they decide they're going to overdub profanity with a non-profane equivalent, that's when it gets so unbelievably silly that most people make fun of it and joke about it.

    Here's an example from the movie Casino, from a scene that's filled with profanity in its original form, but here is the overdubbed version:

    One thing I'd like to see on Game of Thrones: A debate about the ongoing political developments in the Seven Kingdoms - featuring Mord and Hodor.

    "No gold!"
    "Hodor!"
    "No gold!"
    "Hodor!"

    All the "alternative methods" I found necessitate expending money.

    Where in the world is your neck of the woods that HBO is censored? China?




    ETA: Just saw the previous posts.

    I am aware of the existence of those kinds of sites.

    If the choice is waiting until it is available on Netflix six months from now or letting a torrent server into my system...

    I'll wait. In fact, I'll probably wait until after I can no longer remember if John Snow marries Daenerys or kills her.

    That is because there is no cure for being the latter! (Bronn) No use hiding it with a censor

    The voyage of the Prunes. The boat behind the one the Pilgrims were on. It is often overlooked.

    The subtitled translation is a really mild word too, the equivalent of 'jerk'.

    On a different channel, if you have English subtitles, they don't censor the audio, but star out the word f*** when it's written. Also numerous radio stations don't censor hip-hop tracks at any time of the day.

    I've absolutely no idea about the 'logic' behind it all.

    That's one of my favorite lines in the whole series. It's brutally truthful, and very blunt and straight to the point. And I love using it.

    GoT was HBO Signature. They've been showing nothing but GoT 24 hours a day for about 2 months.

    I do not know if it is that or if subscription channels (HBO is up here) have a different set of rules regarding censoring. Normal cable channels do censor here.

    Going by what I saw on a CNN report, Chinese censors censor things as they happen (I'm guessing they have some sort of delay to allow censors time to censor similar to how some live shows in America do).
