    Okay, why does the new BattleStar Gallactica series have to use the word frak in every sentence? I'm getting rather tired of herring it at every commercial they have for it, and it's probably the one thing keeping me from enjoying the show.
    I know, it sounds silly but what the hell?

    The old series never had any such words and it was awesome! Still prefer watching the older one over the new one any day.

    It's swearing but not swearing, sort of like how Transformers say "slag" and "scrap" in place of cusses.

    I think it was in the original, but used less heavily? Never really watched the original though.

    Frak is one of the greatest words ever invented in the English language.

    Too fraking right! Frak is such a frakingly diverse word that can be used in a frakingly amazingly large number of fraking situations. I fraking love frak, and if you don't then I don't give a frak. [/childwhojustdiscoveredswearwords]

    You think that's bad? Just last year when the DVD Seasons went on sale at best buy, I bought all of them and finally watched the series. That whole time, and a few months after I finished, I was replacing fuck with the word frak as well. It was frakking smart on their end! Nice way to get them to swear in every episode!

    Man, I should watch it through again, I liked that time when I used frak instead...
