I’m not going to lie @JakeyBoy , I’m experiencing a bit of schadenfreude from your post about Peep Show after you supported pulling Little Britain and Come Fly With Me
It’s all playing out like that jokey post @arsenescoatmaker made about “first they came for”.
Instead his post should have read:
First they came for Little Britain and Come Fly with me, and I did not speak out - because I did not watch Little Britain or Come Fly With Me
Then they came for League of Gentlemen and Mighty Boosh, and I did not speak out - because I did not watch League of Gentlemen or Mighty Boosh.
Then they came for Friends, and I did not speak out - because I did not watch Friends (only @Phoebica does)
Then they came for Peep Show and there was no one left to speak for Peep Show.
This is exactly the point myself, @Midfield_Maestro and @Dr_Strangepass were making and that you guys were making fun of us for. We knew it was coming because this is how it always goes.
“Oh Little Britain is just a shit show, it’s kind of offensive, whatever, not a big deal, it’s outdated”
No it is a big deal, because it literally is a slippery slope where shows like Peep Show, Mighty Boosh and League of Gentlemen and much more mainstream and inoffensive shows and media will get thrown out with the bath water.
This is why I’m so vehemently against censorship of ANY kind, ESPECIALLY within humour and comedy. Comedy should be protected from censorship most of all.
