I do beleive that censorship has it's place.
And that being said, someone wrote in here that is in inconsistent. Which is so very true. And not just on TV/movies.
Bottom line. If there is a show where (where English is the spoken language)and I cannot understand a word they are saying for they are using too much slang I'll not watch it. If there is a show with too much violence (by guns), I'll not watch it. If the show has an unrealistic amount of nudity or nudity for the sake of it, chances are I'd probably not watch it. I'll not watch movies where it feels like every second word is a cuss, and I'd prefer never to watch a war movie, a movie about drugs.... but guess what? It's my choice to watch them, or to turn them off.
When it comes to the whole public outcry on censorship, it is so very important to supervise the younger viewers in our care be they your students or your children. And that is where people are lacking. There should be no out cry if an eight year old watches Spartacus. What on earth are they doing up that late unsupervised on the television?
I say let producers and directors make what they want to make, set a standard rating system that must be obeyed, tag the program with easy to grasp concept tags, and let the people in positions of authority judge what can and cannot be viewed by the young eyes we care for.
