Seriously, did none of you watch the original show? Go to IMDb and view the "Quotes" pages of random episodes. Shakespeare with profanity is exactly what it always was, from Episode 1:
- "I may have f***ed up my life flatter'n hammered s**t, but I stand here before you today beholden to no human c***sucker, and holdin' a workin' f***in' gold claim, and not the U.S. government tellin' me I'm trespassin', or the savage f***in' red man or any of these other limber-d**k c***suckers passin' themselves off as prospectors had better try and stop me."
- "Having heard all that, and knowing, as you must, the injudiciousness of making an enemy of a man who could testify truthfully that five minutes before her marriage, he heard his daughter wish her prospective husband dead, and who won't shrink from lying as to what she admitted to him on his arrival in this cesspool as to her complicity in her husband's murder... I suppose you'd best take your swing."
- "The bald contempt of it! Why not come out five abreast cavorting and taunting 'E.B. was left out! E.B. was left out!'? C***suckers! C***lickers! Make your filthy gestures. Public service was never my primary career... Two come this way!"
- "Could you have been born, Richardson? And not egg-hatched as I've always assumed? Did your mother hover over you, snaggle-toothed and doting as you now hover over me?"
- "But I should say too that, in these rooms just this afternoon, such displeasure brought me near to murdering the sheriff and... raping Mrs. Ellsworth. I have learned through time, Mr. Tolliver, and as repeatedly seem to forget, that whatever temporary comfort relieving my displeasure brings me, my long-term interests suffer. My proper traffic is with the earth. In my dealings with... people, I ought solely have to do with n*****s. And whites who obey me like dogs."
