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.

But ironically, my folks let us watch Married with Children them.

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".

I was going to say the same thing, except I do remember when I was told it was my bedtime, when my last show went into commercial, but before the closing credits rolled, I would pitch a fit. (I used to say, "But I wanna see the over) I called the closing credits "the over"!

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!
