    Okay. When I was born (around the first season of The Simpsons) I used to watch The Simpsons. My parents let me because I never understood it. I stopped liking it because that cursed Fox closing card at the end of the show. At age 11, then, I had this friend who I talked too on the school bus said she watched it (although I eventually figured out that her parents may not have allowed her to watch it, but she did anyway), and I asked my mom if I could, and had a huge meltdown that lasted for hours when she said no. A few hours later, mom said "Okay, I talked with dad, he said you can watch The Simpsons tonight", but then I wasn't in the mood. They never said anything about it being for adults ever since. Then when I was 15, I started watching it when they didn't mind. Even though me and my family are firmly religious (Christian and conservative), I am still allowed to watch PG-13 and even some R-rated movies (The Blue Lagoon, The Terminator, National Lampoon's Vacation,). She encouraged me to watch "The Terminator" once. I eventually did. When I told her I watched "The Blue Lagoon" on cable, she never explicitly said anything about it being inappropriate.

    Also, when I was little, I vaguely remember my dad used to watch "Beavis and Butthead."

    Love connection, the big date, the dating game, the newlywed game, debt, supermarket sweep and jerry springer, (the 1st 4 were because my mom didn't like the relationship shows, the next 2 were because she thought i watched enough game shows (although she didn't mind supermarket sweep anymore after a few years), and jerry springer is pretty obvious.

    My sister and I wasn't banned from watching anything. Everything to anything we wanted to watch was fair game even our dads porn tapes lol lol lol. Same thing for my youngest sister who is quite a few yrs younger than me.

    Now that's just bad parenting.....no offence.

    1. The Simpsons: Somehow, although banned from watching this a 3 or 4 years old, I somehow knew Bart's name and called the show "Bart Simpson".

    2. King of the Hill: Became banned after its premire because the pilot episode was about Hank teching Bobby how to smoke.

    3. Malcom In The Middle: My mom saw a commercial for the show where the mom yelled somethinkg like "Go away you big jackass!" Thus it was banned for "bad language". The show never really had any bad language because jackass is slang term for a donkey.
    You can't be very old if you weren't aloud watching Malcom In The Middle.

    Oh I forgot about the Morton Downey Jr show too. My mother always thought that Morton Downey Jr was a loud mouth.

    I wasn't allowed to watch The Golden Girls, believe it or not. Guess my parents didn't think "women old enough to be my grandmother trying to get laid" made for an appropriate show for 8 year olds.

    I watched what I wanted and I didn't tell anybody. For years I didn't tell my dad about family guy and south park and stuff but now we watch them together and have lots of laughs.

    I wasn't allowed to watch the tv show "Soap" 1977-1981

    Or anything that had anything to do with the occult. I couldn't watch any scary movies so I never saw Freddy, Jason, or Michael Myers until I was an adult. My step mom was very religious.

    Too bad about Soap. That show was hilarious. I used to watch reruns of this show when Comedy Central aired reruns of them years ago. My father introduced me to it.

    I wasn't allowed to watch the Simpsons when it first came out, because my mother felt it was inappropriate for a child of seven/eight to watch, especially with the way Bart acted. She also felt that the themes were too adult for child (just like Married with Children; I didn't watch this until I was in my teens).

    At least some parents back in the day monitored what their kids watched and couldn't blame the show if the kid did something stupid. Doesn't seem many do that now.

    Alright, no offense dude, but it feels foolish to me to think that even sometimes the media isn't to blame for a child's behavior. If you disagree, you can go talk to DebriStorm about the issue.

    Luckily for me, I was old enough to watch "South Park" when I first saw the episode about sex-education in elementary school.

    My mom would let me watch absolutely anything I wanted when I was little. I'm so glad she did because I had (and still do have) a variety of interests in things I watched. I watched everything from young children's shows to extremely graphic horror films. If she were to of have censored what I liked and wanted to check out I would have so much less to remember from the 90s. I really got to experience it all concerning media back then!
