    Indeed. I've been watching reruns of a 15 y/o TV series made & set in Canada, a cop show, and was thinking last night how different even our television is up here w/r/t gun violence. This was a prime-time mid-week show, and the language was real -- in one hour-long ep I counted 2 shits, 2 Goddamns, 1 Jesus Christ, 2 Christs, 2 pissed offs & 1 asshole. There were 2 bare breasts (with nipples) & one bare (male) backside -- and not a single gun fired in the entire hour. Not one. Guns were drawn by uniformed police at one point when they had the bad guy cornered, but he was talked out without a single shot. My takeaway: nice butt! We Canadians are accused of being boring, but personally I'd rather be bored to death than shot to death.
