FFS! Channel 5 have been slated for showing Watership Down on Easter Sunday. Apparently they’ve been bombarded by complaints from parents that far from being a cute tale of bunnies in their natural habitat, the movie – based on Richard Adams’ 1972 novel – is a bit of a violent, scary tale which includes scenes of rabbits being killed.
Where have these arseholes been hiding for the last 38 years? The film was made in 1978 so are these people seriously going to expect us to believe that they never watched it as kids? It’s so old that even their grandparents could have watched it as kids!
I assume that whilst these idiots are busy wrapping their kids up in cotton wool that they take a similar view of Tom the cat knocking seven shades of shit out of poor little Jerry.
