    I heard about that today and it almost made me sick. The funny part is that they aren't going to fine any stations until up to a year away and won't say now whether they will or not.

    That is such a crock of shyte (s'cuse my language, but that's the way it is). Have you heard what those affiliates that do not show 'Ryan' are getting from the network as a replacement? :roll: Eddie Murphy's 'Coming to America' :roll:

    its probably one of the single greatest first 20 minutes in film history...every child should be forced to watch it. so they can appreciate what others provided for them.


    and on a side note..if you are serving or have served in the military...thank you.

    I watched half of a video of the film the other day and the other half last night. Coincidence? :shock: But lets be honest, it's a crap film isn't it?

    But I agree, it should have been aired. All the time other here programs and films are rescheduled or just not shown and the only warning you get is the announcement at the beginning, "tonight's episode of xxxxxx won't be shown today due to recent events". It's bloody annoying and pointless. Just show it and the people who don't want to see any of it can watch the other channels. Most of the time though, it's done to safeguard themselves because you'll have loads of idiots complaining about it being shown.

    Too true Ferny. I have a Simpsons episode on tape where Willie is talking about tractors and exclaims: 'they're all CRAP!' It was on Sky the other night and that line had been cut. A few days previous they had shown an episode where Marge says 'I am really pissed off' and that seemed to be OK. I think a tractor manufacturer must have complained.
    But it is entirely possible re. the main above conversation that someone who knew someone in the Whitehouse bumped into someone who knew someone in the FCC and made an offhand comment about how an anti-war film might not be the best thing to show just before sending the troops in to Felujah. Tends to make the electorate uncomfortable.
    I'm not one for conspiracy theories but I know how Govts. and big business work.
    Thank God we have the BBC!
