Pre program/film announcements
« on: 17 March 2021, 00:48:34 »

As above! WTF? I was watching a vet programme this evening and a warning before it started was: "there are some scenes that may upset some viewers" or some such drivel. These are episodes where surgery to animals is what it is all about! And should be shown fully.
With this covid crap going on, as many on here have I am sure watched some rubbish. Last week I watched a cowboy film made in the 1950's. (yea yea I know!) with Randolph Scott. The opening shot (pun intended} was a warning "With language and attitudes of the era that may now offend". What? I think we are breeding a generation of wusses!  :-\ :-\

We are becoming a nation of wimps, some folk need to "man up" and not wanting to offend anyone "woman up" anyone who cannot relate to either gender tough shit.

I agree that films must be able to reflect the true reality of life with all the horrors that may contain, although ensuring films are properly classified.

There has been great progress in making films that show the nitty gritty of life, especially in the war film domain.  Now those interested can see those films doing the opposite of glorifying war in the past and now showing bodies being blown apart and the horrific aftereffects for those that survive.

Hopefully, no matter what they do about on screen warnings, this must continue.  Then the realities of such "life and death" may, just may, make the young potential warriors aware of the facts. That also applies to drug related films as much as war fodder. ;)

I have always believed that if the young in 1914 had known the true carnage they were entering they would not have joyfully gone off on a jolly to fight the Hun.  But films of that have only really shown the true realities in modern times - "Saving Private Ryan", "1917", "Stalingrad", and "The Somme" etc I am sure you all know of many others - have only come about in the last 20 years.

As for hospital and general medical documentary, which I love, anyone who watches them must surely know whats coming? ::) ::)

None of it should be toned down out of a fear of "frightening the viewing public".  Bring it all on! :y

Nigger was a common name for black cats and dogs back in the day......The removal of the poor mutts name is yet more evidence of snowflakery, wokery, and bellendery.

Each and every week night when I hear " some viewers may find certain scenes upsetting " I know it's time to take myself off to the east wing for a port and cigar to avoid Emmerdale or Coronation bleak .

The soaps really are utter crap. Trash TV designed to appeal to the lowest common denominator.
