Some of us are old enough to remember when parental guideline ratings first debuted on TV. The only programs not subject to the rating system were news and sports. Athletics and information, what could be inappropriate for children there? How about a grotesque mass of pus emanating from a man’s head during a Dr Pimple Popper commercial? Warner Bros, that didn’t seem appropriate to me and I have a note on the car.
It’s bad enough that during sporting events people are subjected to these horror movie trailers against their will. I know it’s a popular genre, but horror used to be about mutant goblins or a plastic clown laughing menacingly near an instrument of torture. Now the scary demons are jumping out of bathtubs to the girls.
Those of you who love to see the creatures from hell try to drag people down with them, right my friend? Personally, as a black man in America, I don’t need to try to scare myself for fun. I have lived some real life horror stories:
- It’s low season at my restaurant job
- Temporary Towing Zone
- There were two policemen surrounding me and now there are six
Now, in addition to the unwanted nightmare fuel, I have to deal with commercials for live action Ren and Stimpy. The only time I want to hear the words “doctor” and “blackhead” near each other is when I’m watching the Seinfeld episode where George tries to erase himself from his boss’s picture, a problem that in 2023 can be easily solved solved with a Google Pixel 7.
At one point I’m watching Kawhi Leonard and Kevin Durant trade 3-pointers, and then all of a sudden there’s a bulbous mass of skin and dirt jumping off my tv I’m willing to admit that I’ve gotten more squeamish as I’ve gotten older, but that commercial was nauseating.. Fortunately, I had already eaten my leftover pizza, because Dr Pimple Popper could have succeeded in being the first thing in Land to spoil the deliciousness of it meal.
Let Warner Bros. ruin a great product. First of all, not only do they download tons of great HBO Max content, they Now they want to divorce the app from the most prestigious name in all of television.
The CEO has already stated that the company “He doesn’t need the NBA.” What else could TNT broadcast that would bring attention to the screen? Warner Bros. has already stopped developing new scripted content and canceled most of the Turner era shows Is TNT going to air only reruns of Delighted until the end of time? Viacom has already done this to MTV by turning it into a never-ending episode of ridiculousness.
Could someone think of the children?! In fact, Forget the kids, do something for me.
Warner Bros., please stop this madness. I have supported you for many years. bugs bunny, Animaniacs, the wayan brothers, I saw it all. I bought movie tickets and he spent some good money buying his merch at Great America. All I ask is that you stop scaring and grossing me out during my favorite time of year.
You can have my HBO, but despite all that is good and decent, stop poking around my NBA Playoffs viewing experience.
