I can't believe it... Tonight at 11:00 EST, ToonDisney will be
broadcasting "The Tick vs. The Tick", which you may remember as the
episode with "The Evil Midnight Bomber What Bombs at Midnight" in it.

I truly believed that I would never see that episode aired again, not
after Oklahoma City and then 9-11.

Could the culture be lightening up a little? Or is Disney just fumbling?

I've half a mind to call the FCC and go on about how *offended* I am...
Y'know, just to be "impy". :^)

If you did, you'd be representing the 1% of complaints that the FCC gets
from sources that are NOT the Parent's Television Council.

Yes, whenever you hear about public uproar to the FCC, it is invariably
this one organization, trying to foist its beliefs about what is
appropriate television on the rest of us.

So what you're saying is that I should be calling THEM, then? :^)

Hee hee!

In your own whiskey-marinated way, I think you've stumbled across a stroke
of genius. Whenever a show worth keeping around comes on, fans should
bombard the PTC with phonecalls so they CAN'T call the FCC to complain.
Well done, Ron, you've saved television.

Oh, well, I meant calling them to complain about being offended. But if
enough people JOINED the PTC and acted enough like BATTLEHYMN...

Oh, you mean tying up their lines. Well, that's a pretty cool idea too,
but it would take an awful lot of calls...

I'd like to ask these groups where they get the idea that the
government has the obligation to protect them from getting offended?
In the words of Penn and Teller, this is Bullshit. Er, not you
Werebat, those groups.

"Save television"? He's surely burn in hell for eternity for that.

I saw that episode recently. Good stuff.

Groups like that get the ideas they get from a compulsive need to
control manifested in their founding members. It doesn't hurt that
there is usually opportunity for profit in their endeavors, either.
