E! Online staffers discussed shows their parents didn’t let them watch when they were kids. Their answers included “Sex and the City”, “The Simpsons”, “Ren and Stimpy”, “Singled Out” . . .“Beavis & Butthead”, “The Sopranos”, “Six Feet Under”, “The X-Files”, and “South Park”.
So that brings up the obvious question: What shows did your parents forbid you from watching . . . and if you have children now, what ones don’t you want them watching?
(I grew up in the late ’80s and ’90s, and wasn’t allowed to watch “The Simpsons”, “Married with Children”, and “The Ren & Stimpy Show”, mainly because I think my mom thought it was too gross or something.)
(Cable shows are big now, so do you let your teenagers watch stuff like “Game of Thrones” or “The Walking Dead”? And how old are they?)
