During the original run of the TV series “MAS*H”, I remember there being a big controversy about the use of the phrase “son of a bitch” in an episode. (Hawkeye calling a South Korean officer that because he was taking a patient of his to her inevitable execution.) I don’t remember the phrase ever being used again in the series.
More recently, a local station was carrying reruns (before FX picked it up) and the phrase seemed to be popping up all over the place. Is my memory faulty, or was the series originally edited to exclude the phrase? I was raised in a devout fundamentally religious household, and I think I would have remembered it if this phrase was used a lot.
