, according to what appears to be new measures emanating from Chinese authorities.Photos of what appears to be a new directive issued by the National Radio and Television Administration have been widely circulated on Chinese social media platforms Weibo and WeChat over the past few days. However, social media posts containing similar photos from last year are also to be found on the internet. The date and authenticity of the new directives cannot be independently verified.
The directives appear to provide clear instructions on what can and cannot be shown in 20 genres of TV and web drama show. Youth drama, for example, should avoid puppy love, crime, and violence. Romantic dramas should avoid intimacy, clashes and conflicts. Fantasies will be subject to particular attention and must be told from a scientific perspective.
Time travel stories must be explained with scientific theories and characters involved must be positive and cannot change the course of history. Gay stories are banned and should be replaced with friendship among characters of the same sex.Dramas that glorify the republican government or warlords in the republican era are to be strictly censored. And crime thrillers will be subject to censorship by the police department. Plots must not reveal how the crimes are solved, though analysis of criminal psychology is allowed. Criminals must be punished. Police cannot be portrayed negatively.Read more: Variety »

'Northern Exposure' at 30: How the quirky summer CBS drama changed TVThe acclaimed gefilte-fish-out-of-water show, focusing on a young New York-trained doctor forced to serve the first four years of his practice in backwoods Alaska, made its CBS debut 30 years ago, on July 12, 1990. One of my favorites show I never expected to watch. Old antenna tv, only one station that was any clear that played daily reruns every night before bedtime. Loved it! The 1st metaphysical drama that created this nation's ideology of what a Jew is, instead of the baby-killer who shoots innocent children of 5 in the head just for breathing while wearing a t-shirt of a woman in a hajib with the sights on the newborn that reads 1 shot 2 kills.
TV Critic Struggling To Explain Appeal Of Watching Television To Average AmericanNEW YORK—Having difficulty making the case for the cutting-edge artistic medium in one of her columns, local TV critic Melissa Andino was reportedly struggling Tuesday to explain the appeal of watching television to the average American. “I know television can seem like a daunting and sometimes impenetrable art form, but if people were more open minded, they might find it captivating,” said Andino, adding that grasping concepts such as “seasons” and “episodes” can often be a major barrier to entry for the layman in fully appreciating the highbrow form of storytelling. “A lot of people don’t seem to understand that you’re supposed to watch multiple episodes in order and follow the characters through each one, sort of like a bunch of short, connected movies. Unfortunately, it could be years before TV becomes a mainstream form of cultural entertainment.” At press time, Andino figured it was best to start her readers on sitcoms before introducing them to more complex forms of television, such as documentary miniseries. Just tell them there's tits in every show. Americans love those jiggly things. that Average American is me!! ^ (might be a first)
