    Re: Breaking Bad Censored

    Alright folks, this issue has already been addressed with the studio. We are awaiting clarification from the studio for their final word.

    Exactly. Very well said. Part of the reason I bought the series collection, and not the individual seasons, was because I wanted the Ultra Violet copies. I am on disability. A lot of days I can't get out of bed because my back, which has had four surgeries, and my left leg, which has had six surgeries, hurt so much. I am PAYING for the Ultra Violet copies I have in my collection (nearly 300 movies, and currently Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and Better Call Saul in television) because there are times I don't have the strength to get up to change a Blu-ray disc. I've bought some 400 movies on DVD, and over 500 on Blu-Ray. The movies I've got that didn't come with an Ultra Violet copy, I've bought digital copies if they're available. And when I bought Breaking Bad, nowhere did it indicate that the digital copy was censored. It's not about not seeing a few breasts, or hearing a couple swear words. It's that the editing to remove these elements is distracting, because what we are seeing and hearing is not as the show runners intended; and, it's about the principle involved.

    Additionally, if you guys don't have anything to say that's germane to the topic at hand, please leave your comments out of this discussion.

    Regardless of what scene, time, episode is censored, why does Vudu have a different version than itunes?

    So what other scenes not from the pilot are censored?

    Again, the indication is that more than the pilot has been censored. With all of Walmart's resources, I think they can multitask with more than one issue to fix. I'd like the issues raised in this thread to be addressed. You've made your point that you don't think that this is a big issue, so please move on and leave this to the folks that do.

    If it was only the pilot episode that was censored, Texan26 statement would make sense. However, censorship occurs throughout the show. If you had the Blu-ray or owned it on iTunes or watched it on Netflix, you would know the other scenes.

    BTW, the discussion in this thread isn't about what Kappa123 would like to see Vudu concentrate their efforts on.

    Jake,

    Are there any updates on this? I sent you the time for when the censored scene occurs. Also, another forum member described the scene. There are others throughout the series as well.

    Thank you!

    No one is saying it wasn't censored when it aired on AMC. The iTunes, Netflix, and the Blu-ray are uncensored and the version Vudu has is. The pilot episode is just one example. There are other examples throughout the series that are censored on Vudu as well.

    Re: Breaking Bad Censored

    You know, I just bought the Breaking Bad complete series on Blu-ray. It comes with the Vudu codes, and my episodes, too, are censored.

    I just began re-watching the series again from the start a few nights ago (on Netflix, as I hadn't opened the Blu-ray set yet). It is clearly uncensored. There is a scene in the pilot where Jesse Pinkman is crawling out of the window of a second story bedroom while the DEA are doing a raid on the meth lab next door. The woman throwing Jesse's clothes out of the window is topless. When I watch the same scene on my Vudu, there is a clear blurring over her chest. The Blu-ray does not have this blurring out. It's not like my life is going to end if I don't see a woman topless for a second and a half, but if one thing is censored, then invariably, there will be other elements within the show that are censored. And that's unacceptable to me. Nowhere on the disc packaging, or in the description of the series on Amazon, does it say "digital copies have censored content."

    I need to get this resolved, please.
