I generally go for the US version provided it's region free, which most are theses days.

What surprises me is that US TV is heavily censored yet their DVD and BD are not. UK TV is much more relaxed, anything normally goes after the watershed, I have heard many comments from actors saying can I say &#@% on UKTV, with the interviewer saying you already have, so a more relaxed view for TV yet the UK has so many cuts on movie releases, to me it makes no sense.

The only thing I can think of is, the lower the rating the larger the perceived audience.
That's because the rules on American TV are tighter than the rules for films. The FCC has very loose guidelines on what's acceptable on TV and what isn't, and tends to apply them erratically. Whereas the MPAA just behave erratically, not that it matter since their system isn't legally enforceable...
