eh.. hello???

One favorite movie of mine is RoboCop, done back when Verhoeven was still good (What the heck happened????).

It must also be one of the most censored mainstream films to having been made, due to it's extreme violence. Basically censored in every country it has been shown in, more or less of it.. In some countries, 8 - 12 mins has been cut from the already censored USA version (Even if the cuts actually differ. A scene where one executive piss himself, was unsuitable in USA but accepted in about every other country etc).

In Sweden it was cut in 13 places, which resulted in 4 mins 19 seconds being cut away..

The movie isn't exactly the nicest when it comes to language neither..

So who's brilliant idea was it, at ITV to show it in the daytime, cut to suit children, back when RoboCop - The Series started showing sometime in the 90's.

Unless they also decided to make "Scarface" kid-friendly, it's hard to imagine a movie less suitable for that kind of treatment?

Exactly how much of it was left??

And how much of that left, made any sense?

Not to mention that the movie, to start with, is very dark and adult, and extremely different in tone to the cartoonish TV-series (and sequels).
