Reservoir Dogs & Friends

I recently watched Reservoir Dogs again, I like it. It reminded me of when I was a teen and it was launched, it was almost banned in some countries. It had people shocked and it was the film to watch as a teenage boy, knowing who Mr Blonde was almost became a right of passage and Stuck in The Middle With You was stuck in everyone’s head. Now though, the violence is timid by modern standards, other than the language I could see it now being ranked as a 15 not an 18.

Some of you may also remember how Friends was recently released on Netflix and branded as sexist and homophobic.

In the same time period where people were shocked with Reservoir Dogs, Friends was on evening TV entertaining families.

So, what’s the point of this? I just wonder what happened to our society where we have become completely desensitised to torture but hyper sensitive to a TV show that was once seen as family entertainment?
