Most of the shows my parents watched then I had no interest in anyway - I just wanted to stay up later!!

No, my parents were really cool about TV. But, TV was a lot milder in the 80s and 90s, especially if you didn't have the movie channels (like HBO), which we didn't. I mostly watched Nick at Nite, PBS and TBS anyway. I think most of the "adult themes" went over my head.

I did have a friend in high school who wasn't allowed to watch MTV. Her father was a pastor. She went crazy wild the second she got away from him, so sometimes I think he should have just let her watch MTV.

Considering I was raised on horror films and Russ Meyer movies, my parents weren't too strict on what I watched on TV.

I can't remember my parents forbidding me to watch anything either. But actually, when I watch "Dallas" today, I can't believe I watched that, when I was only ten years old. But I wouldn't have watched it, if my mother and my sister hadn't done it.

I'm pretty much the same as you; I was raised on horror films.

My parents gave rules on bedtime but when it came to television they didn't really control much at all of what I saw.

I couldn't watch SNL when I was in grade school due to its drug and sex content and when we got cable it was no shows with strong sexual content or comedy acts that were real raunchy until I was 15 they were okay with everything else.

That's right, my parents objected to this:
Attachment 148085

Not this:

That just made my day! i can totally relate. my parents had no issue with me watching sleazy soaps featuring partial nudity and talk of sex, but the simpsons, a cartoon was off-limits... it makes no sense...

I think it was more a case of they didn't want to watch the simpsons so they forbid me from watching it. But i did feel left out at school too! it was hard, everyone else was watching the simpsons but i was left having to explain why i watched "murder she, wrote"... kind of like how all the other kids were watching "Blossom" which was racy but i had to watch "full house" which well wasn't.
