Why the heck Darby O'Gill...!?

Because someone pulls an Oirish accent? Well, then, how about Black Panther, where an American actor goes about doing a pastiche of an "African" dialect...!?

We had a sketch show here years ago, that is no longer shown because they had a character who talked about the "walk to the village to get the whata". Everyone in Wakanda speaks like he used to! And that hasn’t been shown for a long while now.

This is all madness.

Those films will sadly now fade even faster than they already are because the core audience won’t be able to discover them naturally.

I'm one of the first to complain about censorship and over-the-top political correctness. But if all they've truly done is basically re-rate several shows that were originally considered G to PG, that's not terribly inconvenient or concerning.

What about Hunchback? Even putting aside any issues about the differently-abled, it's extremely insensitive and demeaning to Catholic culture, right? /slippery-slope

Disney is getting huge backlash over removing the films from the kids section. The disney forums are tearing them apart and many have removed the kids section due to it! Also many have pointed out soul about death is in the kids section!

It's even made world news! Does not make disney look good at all!

Aw. Now how about a new Vault Disney tile that gives us classic Walt-era goodness (with all the PC nonsense thrown out), aka what some of us old‘uns were promised...?

The only thing that I care about here is Buffy and it's the crappy HD master. I already have the DVDs and a SD digital copy (which has seasons 4-7 in 1.78 instead of 1.33 unfortunately).

Main one I care about is "Family Guy" and they give that on TV all the time. Roadhouse! ;)
