True Blood vampires and the explicit TV sucking the innocence out of our children
By Olivia Lichtenstein
Any parent with a teenager will be painfully aware that for impressionable young TV viewers, there's nothing sexier than a vampire - and it's got nothing to do with Halloween.
Channel 4's latest attempt to seduce us with a mixture of swearing and sex comes in the form of True Blood, the latest in the long line of sexually explicit, violent and vulgar programmes that have, sadly, become the norm on British television.
True Blood is a shocking tale of depravity, explicit sexuality (bordering on pornography) and vile language.
Even before the opening credits have rolled in the first episode, we see a young woman pleasuring a young man while driving her car.
( More hilarity this way!Collapse )
So alas, dear readers-- shall we sharpen the stakes of censorship for Brit TV after the watershed?
