    I never had any restrictions, I was allowed to watch what ever I wanted on tv and what ever I wanted to rent from the video store.

    Any show with teenagers on it, because my father was hell-bent on claiming that almost all teenagers were a bad influence on people, even though the shows were usually rated G.

    As for my mother, she wouldn't let me watch Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Harry Potter, and almost any show with magic in general (except Fairly Odd Parents) for a while because she was listening to all those "satanic panic" rumours. Which was ironic, because she is a Catholic and the Vatican approved of Pokemon.

    And none of them would let me watch those mature shows for obvious (and good) reasons.

    I was allowed to watch anything really as long as my mom didn't know or it didn't influence me to do bad things. Alot of the bad shows back then I use to watch were like the first shows to ever use such swear words and vulgarity and my mom never really knew that was on tv. I remember a couple of times though I would be watching DX on WWF and they would be making sexual jokes or there would be a little bit of nudity or adult content and my mom would be walking by and would be like "holder holder, what are you watching?!" I'd be like "DX...SucK IT!" Mom - "I don't think so" shuts off tv. I would catch the second showing of it a few hours later to see what I had missed haha.

    Or me and my buddy would be watching Duckman or South Park VHS's we found right around the time when the show came out because it was what all the "big kids" or "teenagers" as we use to call them were talking about. Or what the kids at school were taking about how their dad let them stay up and watch an episode and it was funny and how they couldn't believe they said this word or that word haha and my mom would be walking by and hears Cartman "S**k my B**ls Kyle ya stupid F**k*n* J*//" She'd be like "i don't think so! where did u get this garbage?"

    Also when I acted up at school trying to be rebelious like stone cold they would take my tv out of mt room and put it on a high up shelf in the basement so that I couldn't watch monday night RAWisWAR that night, as a punishment. I would wait until they went to bed, stay up all night go to the basement, climb the shelves and lift that huge tv down and back up stairs to catch the second showing on from 1-3AM. I loved wrestling haha they knew they couldn't make me miss it as much as they hated it an just excepted it after awhile.

    other then that i pretty much watched everything i wanted to....Just because by the time my parents realized this stuff was allowed on tv now a days I was pretty much big enough to sneak around them and I always watched it at my friends houses anyway.

    When I was a child I saw parts of multiple PG-13/R movies
    On Cable.Here are some examples.

    -The ending of Raiders of the Lost Ark when Toht's face melted off.

    -The ''Playboy Bunny'' USO-esque stage show scene from Apocalypse Now.

    -Most of Die Hard With A Vengeance.

    -Also the ending of Little Shop of Horrors when my family went on Spring Break to Savannah in 2001.

    My parents were basically okay with anything below porn... although I think I remember them stopping one or two episodes of South Park for being too inappropriate. Pretty sure the red rocket episode was too much for them.


    I don't know anyone who would let their child watch that red rocket episode.

    I wasn't supposed to watch South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (1999) because it is a R rated movie (while at Miss Tamara's in the middle of the night). Movies that are rated R or NC-17 are unacceptable (let alone Terminator 2: Judgment Day). I did watch Pokemon (at the exact same house) instead. Pokemon helped drive the godawful Teletubbies out of Miss Tamara's house a little bit (as does Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Harry Potter).

    Raiders of the Lost Ark was pretty much family approved by The Dove Foundation as much as The Prince & Me (even though it had a Playboy prince meeting a princess which is similar to Cinderella), Just My Luck, A Cinderella Story, Spy Kids, Snow Day, Grace Unplugged, Leap! (Ballerina if outside the United States), Kit Kittredge: An American Girl, Ice Princess, The Princess Diaries 1 & 2, Adam Sandler's Bedtime Stories, The Game Plan, Star Wars (the entire saga), Osmosis Jones (featuring the voices of Chris Rock, Laurence "Larry" Fishburne, Brandy (Norwood) and David Hyde Pierce), Dora the Explorer and God's Not Dead 2 (with Melissa Joan Hart).

    I couldn't see Blade 2 because it was rated R, but nothing was really off limits to me. I was allowed to watch South Park and Harvey Birdman when I was a kid. (The latter introduced me to my longest childhood crush, Black Vulcan.)
    Yeah, it's Yuuki. Got a problem with that?

    I wasn't allowed to watch The Simpsons or Beavis and Butthead because my Mom dubbed it "Too Violent" for me to watch. I understand Beavis and Butthead, but The Simpsons? Come on, it was no worse than any other sitcom/show I was allowed to watch.

    Also, any movie rated R or NC-17 was off limits for obvious reasons.


    Oh really? I may banish Thylacine from the internet for using "any movie rated R or NC-17 was off limits for obvious reasons" because that is definitely unacceptable. I may never use "off limits" as my excuse (while at Amandole) because Corbin Ballast can't stand it at all since Amandole has a major policy if someone brings a rated R movie to the dayhab, it will be watchable here.

    My grandparents can't stand MTV at all so they turned off the TV, interrupting my daily viewing of Girl Code. I miss watching Girl Code most of the time due to decency of the PTC who took the reality show off the air in a few years, replaced by reruns of Boy Meets World which was a fairly good classic sitcom.

    The only thing my parents didn't let me watch as a child was the film Casualties of War. It came out the summer I turned ten and I saw an ad for it on TV and thought it looked really cool, so I asked my mother if we could go see it. To my shock, because this had never been an issue before, she said no, I was too young for such a film. Other than that, my parents did not care what I watched. As long as it wasn't a school night and I didn't have to be up early for school, they did not care if I stayed up late to watch soft-core movies on Cinemax. I wouldn't have known where to get hard-core pornography from as a teenager, but I doubt my parents would have cared if I had watched it. But Casualties of War was where my mother drew the line. When I watched it later when I was a bit older, I could see where she had been coming from. The funny part is, my parents were quite strict about other things.

    South Park. I once tried to record it, and my parents went crazy. I was like, "How about North Park? That won't be as bad, will it?"

    Also, when I watched an episode of the Simpsons with my mom once, I was like "Now how about Family Guy?" and my mom was like "You shouldn't watch that!" Too bad, because I saw a bunch of clips of it on YouTube (like "Can't Touch Me," which is a classic. Oh, and there was this PBS logo parody that used the audio from Peter's butler spanking him and him going "I hate you! I hate you! I want my mommy!")
