My Parents "discouraged" me from watching The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits among others when I was young. Today I have both on DVD!

Maybe because Alfred Hitchcock Presents is a hundred times better than The Simpsons.

I was forbidden from watching Jerry Springer. But I can't blame my Mom for that one. I wouldn't let my kids watch it either.

i could pretty much always watch whatever I wanted, although I often got yelled at for watching Saturday morning cartoons all day instead of doing chores.

I did try to forbid my mom from watching Matlock because I hated it as a kid.

Any Pro Wrestling. My mother hated it, but it didn't help that I would imitate it including trying to rip my shirts like Hulk Hogan.

No. In my day there wasn't a show that was considered inappropriate. Shows that were on after 9, I probably didn't see only because I had school the next day. I remember the days when 7pm to 8pm were geared to children.

Although not forbidden, my parents strongly preferred that I didn't watch The Ricki Lake Show, Jerry Springer or Sally Jesse Raphael Show. Although I did watch Ricki and Sally a lot.

They thought these were too "Spooky" for me to watch (I was but five years of age at the time), later, when I was in my Teenage years I watched them on late-night TV and liked them. As I mentioned before, I now have both on DVD.

When I was like fourteen, fifteen years old, I used to watch "Ricki Lake" and "Jenny Jones" a lot. But I grew tired of both of them.

Peyton Place was another show I was forbidden to watch, but it came on after my bedtime, so I didn't get to see it too much. One evening, I noticed my parents had left the door open while I watched it, so I sneaked up and peeked in to see what they were watching. what I saw was a couple of ladies yammering about something I couldn't understand at the time, I found it boring, so I went back to bed and let them carry on.

Ironically, many of the shows that us kids watched are now on many peoples "Forbidden" lists because they are "Politically Incorrect". Which is why you don't see them on anymore or in some cases not even available on DVD. Fortunately, for the latter there's "Other Sources" you can get these from!
