My mom didn't want me and my younger brothers to watch "Maude", for some reason. That got me interested, so I made sure to visit my friend's house one evening when "Maude" was on, and watched it there. I really couldn't figure out why my mom didn't want me to see it, but after watching it I decided it was a really lousy show and that I wasn't missing anything.

My mom wouldn't let me watch the violent cartoons - He-Man, Transformers, and the like. And I wasn't allowed to watch the Simpsons until I was a little older. Oh yeah my parents cancelled the subscription to The Disney Channel because I used to jump around and pretned I was TIGGER.

Isn't it strange how parents can be? My mom had a problem with "We Got It Made" because of the sexual innuendo, but let me watch "Three's Company", "Dallas" and not too many years later, "Saturday Night Live".

Not at all! But sometimes when I am watching movies that are for adults or too violent, She's there watching it with me. She is explaining everything like why did they do that? I shouldn't do that and etc.

I had no restrictions, but once when an episode of "MAUDE" was on that dealt with her decision to have an abortion and her husbands to have a vasectomy; I remember it was causing some controversy, people were sending all these letters and phone calls to CBS and things, and I remember my father said to me "I hope you're not planning to watch MAUDE tonight".

I watched it anyway, out of curiosity. I figured it couldn't be bad since it was on at 9:00 at night. And I was right, it wasn't.
I remember that was also the first time I had ever heard of abortion, also the word abortion. Also, vasectomy.

We didn't watch any TV growing up -- pretty sheltered! I'm glad I learned to entertain myself without depending on TV, but it makes it a little awkward now when people launch into memories of shows they used to watch growing up and then express their horror that I've never seen it!
