Default Beaverís Poem

Yesterday they edited out the scene where Wally is doing his homework in their room and Beaver is pretending to shoot a gun. He says heís going down to get Ward to help with his homework and asks Wally for paper. He says to Beaver to close the door so he wonít hear Ward yell. They started the episode with June and Ward discussing going to a movie.

Sounds like MeTV is starting to bow at the altar of political correctness. I noticed they skipped The Rifleman episode where the Chinese people came to North Fork. AMC showed it the same day.

It's amazing we baby boomers survived cap guns.

I actually saw that episode on AMC. You said MeTV skipped it? They never used to. Rifleman has been on MeTV forever. That episode is politically correct. They show Wang Chi as a learned and good man teaching his boy patience and respect for others while Fergus, the white guy teaches his boy hate. In the end Fergus is kicked out of North Fork and Wang Chi sets up business with his laundry. It is sort of steriotypical of a Chinese laundry. I liked the episode. If they start banning gun violence we won’t see it again.

I agree, I see nothing wrong with that episode. In fact, it's as right as it can be. (yes, it probably does play to stereotypes, but they could do a disclaimer at the beginning--that's the way the world was back then).

Yes, they did skip it. I wanted to DVD record it, but I did get it off AMC (more edited than MeTV, but at least I got it.)

They also skipped an early WKRP episode when they started showing that. I don't watch that show, but there was a big hullaballoo on the message boards about it.

In Beaver’s Poem I was surprised that June advised Ward not to write the poem for him. In Beaver’s Poster later she wondered why Ward couldn’t draw Beaver a nice poster as he was a talented artist. Ward learned his lesson from the dreaded poem.
