    Hear tell that it's going to be removed from future dvd releases. I made damned sure I ordered a boxset before that happens.

    Loathe that retard.

    When an Obama mask was on a dummy hung in effigy, it was just wrong...

    That was a political statement. Do you seriously not understand the difference?

    Be careful - the DHS will have your head on a pike for that one ... and NOT for a movie! Not that there's any difference, but HEY ....

    Because directors are sometimes idiots. And the stupid director's comments on DVD means that they have to say something for every scene. I guess he thought just saying "here's a bunch of heads on pikes" wasn't insightful enough.

    The fact that the head they used happens to be a George bush head is really only noteworthy because of the recycle factor that has always been a staple of the entertainment industry and the head they used just happens to be a George bush head. It could have been your ex wife or my son or Obama or Fidel Castro. The fact is they would have used any one of these heads because it's just what they do.

    Because it's trivia. That's what the commentary tracks are for. I seriously can't understand what the big deal is. They brought it up because it's just the sort of quirky, behind the scenes thing you'd expect to find on a commentary. Stories about practical jokes, things that the casual viewer might miss, Easter eggs put in by the team... that's what you get when you listen to the commentary.

    I have to agree about the double standard though...if that had been "someone else's head" I think the reaction would be much different.

    Different than what? Do you think that some liberals would whine and carry on about nothing, trying to make it political? Because from the outside looking in, that would be exactly the same reaction as what's going on now. In order for it to be a different reaction, the reaction would have to be... Different.

    Aye, surely there are important things to get in a tizz about? More important than a passing comment on a DVD commentary track about something that no-one in the entire world noticed otherwise?

    How about giving your government a kick up the **** for not supporting us against Argentina's war-of-words sabre-rattling? That's worth commenting on; well I think so at any rate.

    the same people who jeer now would be cheering.

    Anything else new?

    Do they have moors in the story? I see a part for Obama's head right there.

    It wouldn't in my opinion no presidential likeness should be used in that way no matter who it is. Or if you do "need" to recycle don't show his face and don't tell people about it just use the head. I know why they did it even if it was non political it has given
    them free publicity. I've never even heard of the show until now so it worked it was a smart move I just don't agree with it. Its my opinion. I also don't believe people should be allowed to burn the flag but its protected speech I just don't agree with that either
