Past Movies/TV shows that couldn't be made today..

I had some downtime to watch a few old favorite movies and TV over the weekend. Remembered a few movies and TV shows that would give millennials and the general public today seizures and cause melt downs on Good Morning America. Here are a few of mine...what are your picks?

Movies: Bad News Bears (1976)

TV: All in the Family. (Today's liberals just couldn't understand the message)

Silver Streak circa 1976, comes to mind.

Was thinking about this the other day.

Battle of Britain: A large number of Spanish made HA1112s (50) and CASA 2.111 (32) were purchased from Spain as surplus. 27 Spitfires and 6 Hurricanes were also available.

Kelly's Heroes: Filmed in Yugoslavia because they still had a number of Sherman tanks available.

Blazing Saddles for obvious reasons.

as stated Blazing Saddles and History of the World part 1;


Blazing Saddles, the snowflakes and their ilk would melt down to the center of the earth, Richard Pryor was one of the primary writers for the film script, the film would have been a piece of shit if not for the fact that Mel Brooks had final say as per the contract, the studio wanted to chop it into tiny pieces but Mel said NO


History of the World part 1, its amazing that this can be aired today, it like blazing saddles has to be chopped so bad the movie looks like a bunch of short clips that cannot be tied together


also I watched AMC on Christmas day, John Wayne movies all day, even some of them were badly butchered ........ stop the idiocy

Unedited Road Runner cartoons, can't have the poor little kiddies see a critter actually hit the ground you know. Don't want them learning there are consequences for falling off a high cliff. It is however OK for them to be brainwashed by violent video games.

Any of the Bugs Bunny cartoons made during WWII. Really did a number on the Japs. There were also a number of cartoons with Bugs that featured "natives."

Song of the South,
WWII Popeye cartoons
Wake Island, original Flying Tigers and Iwo Jima ( It's so edited now it isn't worth watching).
It's a wonderful life ( without the black maid, who I think is great).
Any movie that shows white men moving society forward and discussing moral foundations, (How the West was Won, Spirit of St. Louis, Sgt. York etc. etc.)

Pretty much anything good or new or fun.

Everything King Midas touched turned to Gold, everything Progressive Liberalism touches turns to poop.

Hollywood is a prime example. Either movies are beyond crass and no longer funny, Baywatch with The Rock is a good example of this. Or they take a beloved classic and make a reboot with an all female cast - thus trying to turn Ghostbusters into Steel Magnolias or some crap. It's needless and should be insulting to women that they can't have original and new all female franchises.

Revenge of the Nerds

It's not the gratuitous pot smoking that's so objectionable in light of what's currently legal in several states. However, there are multiple problems:

Louis basically rapes Betty in the funhouse. But she likes it.
The panty raid would be considered a home invasion today.
Then the Tri-Lambdas install video cameras in the sorority house. Folks do serious time for this nowadays.

I could not stand M.A.S.H.. My parents used to watch it and I failed to see any "humor" in it. All I ever noticed was it's anti-American, anti-Constitution, pro-commie slant. It baffles the imagination how that shit ever made the airways for as long as it did. Not one millisecond was worth the electricity it took to make it.
