TV used to have rules. On pay cable- your HBOs, your Cinemaxes- anything and everything is fair play.

Want to turn a TV show into softcore porn? Watch a man's skull pop in the grip of a man-mountain? Replace an entire scene's worth of dialogue with nothing but F-bombs?

Go for it. It's pay cable- no one can stop you.

But the other TV stations- the kinder, gentler ones that don't cost a bundle on top of your normal cable bill each month- those are supposed to tone down the violence.

Not anymore. Now, the same network that once brought you "Friends" brings an assembly line of severed faces and guts spilling out of half-empty body cavities.

It's gross. Really gross. Unless you're into that thing, in which case it's kind of awesome.

Either way, we're here to catalogue it all.

We're not cataloguing the pay cable, though. This is broadcast through basic cable only- places you can't regularly get away with slicing off a man's face and watching his bisected brain shloop out his open skull.

And if that sentence didn't tip you off let this be a warning - major grossness lies ahead!

Click though and we'll show you what should never have been allowed on network TV.
