Because that would be an admission by Hollywood that the blood/sex/language

is gratuitous. If it can so easily be removed from the product, it didn’t

need to be there in the first place.

There are already products similar to this. TV Guardian searches the closed

captioning for objectional words, muting the audio track and replacing

the objectional word with another word. It’s OK as it goes, but when

watching

the story of Jesus and seeing him tell Peter “Before the jerk crows, you

will betray me three times”, you realize that language is a tricky thing.
