  1. When the film came out, me and my friend were 15 years old – so, allegedly under age to see it. We were uppity, politically minded young people – we wanted to see this film – so, we did.

    That film is the kind of thing where censorship can prevent information and knowledge of the reality of a situation from getting out into the world.

    I believe that a film such as that, can help with the development of awareness in the young.

    Then I watched the series when that came out. Not as hard – hitting, played more for laughs, but still some solid stuff in there.

    By the by – welcome back Dream Angus.
