The Big [CENSORED] Theory

Really, really good analysis by The Pudding.

When these shows resurfaced, they were full of these weird jumps, signaling that scenes were removed during censorship because someone somewhere thought it would be inappropriate or illegal to stream such content.

[…]

77 of the first 100 episodes had at least one edit, amounting to 206 removed scenes.

[…]

I categorized these scenes, among which sex, LGBTQ+ (and atypical heterosexual relationships), as well as disrespect toward China or the country’s allies are the most common ones. The four other topics account for a rather small portion but are still worth mentioning: illegal actions, religion, unhealthy addictions, and miscellaneous.

[…]

This added up to over one hour of deleted scenes, or nearly three full episodes of purely censored content.

Source and analysis by The Pudding.

The author analysed all the censored cuts out of TBBT and categorised them in 7 different ways (explained at the end of the article).

Very nicely done, showing side by side comparison of the censored and original version.

That ’70s Show

From the (very) few things I watch on TV, I believe it’s That ’70s Show I enjoy most. It’s one of the only (comedy) shows I can just keep watching to. Yes, 24 and Lost aren’t too bad either (and, well, it’s not really comedy, is it?), but the last seasons have been going downwards and all tension is gone. That ’70s Show is different and hasn’t really changed over the years, it still makes me grin for about 25 minutes each day I manage to watch it.

Anyhow, here’s a screen from yesterday’s episode that really made me laugh.

That ’70s Show

As Eric is going away to Africa, Donna wanted to give him a special good-bye. She dressed completely as Princess Leia in Star Wars. But all Eric could think of, was to hug and touch Donna’s hair. 😀
