PostSubject: LHOP DVDs ban for children in Finland   Sat Nov 15, 2008 2:08 am

In an interesting twist, USA Today and several other sources have reported that Finland is banning children from watching Little House on the Prairie. There is a link at my blog to the article, but the jist is that Universal Pictures refused to spend a ton of money to have the series reviewed, so the DVDs now carry a sticker with a "Banned for under-18s" on them.

I guess they mark any unreviewewed content that way. It would have cost Universal thousands to have it reviewed according to the articles I found, so they opted not to do it.

I wouldn't bet on that....Rhonda's a cat napper! :sleep:

As far as the dvd's......That is crazy....its amazing how lazy people are. All they would have to do is ask about a million of us crazy fans. We could have told them how old we were when we watched LH and we aren't messed up! Well....some of us! BUT STILL!

grinsmiley I agree! If anything, it's one of few family-friendly shows available on TV and DVD - especially in this day and age.
