Looking through the listings between 9pm and 5am it seems nearly every movie today onwards 'contains adult themes' 'contains sexual scenes' 'contains sexual content' 'contains sexual violence'

What the hell is going on

The only movies the main channels are showing today are family and children's films. There aren't even any films on around 9 and 10pm except for The Incredibles! As for anything after that well it IS after the watershed and the films are the same as always it's just they use those phrases nowadays to qualify why the film got a PG, 12, 15 or 18 certificate.

For my sins, I watched about a hour of ITV2's Pantomime, Cinderella, first shown in 2000, or thereabouts. A star-spangled cast but full of double entendres etc. Do they do this in these types of show, as I have never been to or watched one before?

Totally agree...how this filth ever got commissioned by the BBC is beyond belief
It seems writers think they cannot make us laugh without their characters being fouled mouthed and sexually explicit these days

Well, good! Adults make films for other adults to watch. Adults don't want simplistic, puerile stories (well, some do - that's what South Park is for ). They want grown up stories, with grown up treatment of grown up topics.

If you are uncomfortable with that, there's plenty of Sound of Music type programmes on during the day you could record, so you can stay in denial that ordinary people swear and have s*x.

Are those the Simon Nye ones? If so, they're awful in every way. They're more naff than a real pantomime.

This thread makes me laugh. I bet you probably have sex with the lights off.

What is on after 9pm is more smutty because it is allowed to be, kids should be in bed anyway, and if not then it's your fault for allowing them to watch smut.


Merry Christmas.

It's after 9pm and just because it's Christmas doesn't mean the adults should be forced to put up with boring family orientated Disney crap all day.

I'd much rather watch a gruesome horror with loads of swearing, violence and gore.

If you see a panto live some I have seen definitely have 2 versions. A children friendly matinee and then in the evening as they get older children and many boozed up office parties its much more blatant with the crude jokes.

Not at Christmas

I'm a huge horror fan I'm a mod at a horror sight and own 100's if not 1000's of Horror films in fact many years ago my family thought my Horror obsession was getting to the point where it was "worrying" but I won't watch them over Christmas

We've just spent the morning watching Human Centipede 2.

My brother is 13 and my sister is 15 and I see no problem with watching horrors, action etc at Christmas. Better than cheesy Christmas dirge.

I love the Christmas stuff the cheesier the better

But I have been watching Horror films such as Hammer-Halloween-F13th Exorcist Chainsaw Massacre (no questions asked to where they came from) ect since I was about 3-4 I think I first watched A Nightmare On Elm St when I was 6.

Though Saw has become an obsession over the past few years I have all the Pig Man costumes ect and have looked to buying replica traps (but they cost 1000's) but not over Christmas.

The first one. Though I can't see the second ever being shown on Tv.

The premise does sound funny, not that I'd watch them.
Gory horror isn't my thing.
Thread's got me thinking about the Revenge Trilogy now

Random question time.
What's the Japanese horror where the girl tortures the bloke with needles and that?
She's got him prone on the floor and makes childlike noises while she tortures him.
