Do you remember The Princess Bride when the little boy asks if he has to hear the kissing bits? I thought that was a charming movie. In the last few weeks I've watched more movies than I watched in quite a long time before that. One thing that's struck me in the recent movies is their loss of innocence.
Even the children's movies seem so much less innocent than they were a decade ago. I'm wondering when the time came that it was okay to have more than kissing in a movie marketed for kids? I suppose that the same is true on television.
In the last few weeks I've had occasion to watch several television shows and truthfully? I'm not impressed. Comedy isn't funny. Reality isn't real. Mysteries are all centered around sex crimes. Drama is flat. And sports aren't sportsmanlike. Even the news is slanted and unfair.
What's safe to watch with kids? Does anyone remember I Love Lucy?
