  • The episodes will be restored once the hemlines change again.

    These phases come and go. This is another Hayes Code, except for good intentions this time. It will pass. The children of Gen Z will have their own weird sh-t to worry about. Like "how could they keep pets?!" or "old movies where they show showers trigger me for wasting water!"

    The evolution of every social horrible:

    1. What sin? (Lack of awareness)
    2. Holy f-ck, we were bad once. Snicker. (Birth of awareness) <-- this is probably the only time we are well-adjusted
    3. It's unacceptable to show that! (Hyperawareness)
    4. That was a long time ago. It's like they are Martians. (Banishment to "history")

    We are now in:

    Phase 1 with vocal fry.
    Phase 2 with poverty porn.
    Phase 3 with racism.
    Phase 4 with sexism.

    • I willing to bet my bottom dollar it’s music rights. It’s a common story in all media rereleases today.

        There's a reason that it took decades for China Beach to make it to DVD, and it's still not available for streaming services. The music in that show as great Vietnam War era stuff, but the original contracts were rather limited in scope.

          I've noticed that the NYT seems to have laid off their semiannual "Detroit Progress Report" articles lately.

          • Most of the issue with muppets is music rights yes. I believe there is one episode where a host ended up being convicted of having child pornography or something along those lines so they pulled that one for that reason.

              I'm assuming you mean after the fact and not as a plot to the episode, right?

                Yes, after the fact. A staff writer, Chris Langham, stepped in to host after Richard Pryor dropped out at the last minute. Langham was found guilty of possessing child pornography in 2007.

                  There is a Cheers Halloween episode where Gary as part of the prank wars rigs everything in the bar to play "Monster Mash". When it came to video and DVD (and streaming later on) they didn't have the rights to the song so it changed to something else. Completely ruined the joke.

                    It's sad to watch this and know that Allen was a very disturbed sick individual. I consider him one of the greatest Film Directors ever but along with that comes a man that should not have been around children. The sad thing is he was not interested in children at all when he met Farrow. But, he fell for Farrow and Farrow had a lot of kids and eventually he succumbed to some sort of evil inside him.

                    Documentary is very well done. Part Two is next week. I have no idea how many parts there are but what was talked about so far is enough to make you ill.
                    Trying to watch this...but, it's in Spanish, and I can't change it for some reason. Nothing else on HBO Max is doing this.

                    • Man, I'm really enjoying HBO's The Investigation.

                      Spoiler:
                      If you dismember your victim, cut off her head, stick it in a bag, weigh the bag down, drop it in the Baltic Sea, and the cops figure out how to find it, that is some serious police work there.

                      That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                        Earthbound and Rock & Roll racing had the same issues.

                        R&RR will likely never see a port because of it.

                        • Rotten is a real good documentary series on Netflix. Food for thought if you will.

                          • Looking forward to watching Pelé on Netflix although I realize it's at best 50/50 it will be more intriguing than anything else I've already watched about him.

                              GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas have all had music cut from rereleases because of the same issues.

                              Heck, WWE blatantly edits their stuff all the time because of music rights issues.

                              • Music rights have banished Beavis & ButtHead's video commentaries from existence as well...
