I don’t understand why these streaming services don’t add a feature to edit content for audience ages. Growing up, I loved the G-rated (PG?) version of Airplane! that they showed on TV.

Vudu recently had a Family Play feature that would auto skip sex, violence etc scenes if enabled by the user. It was great, I was watching PG-13 shows like Thor Ragnarok with my 6 year old. They were essentially 90s era cable TV cuts like a lot of us grew up watching. Unfortunately when Walmart sold Vudu the feature was scrapped.

VidAngel is a service that allows just that; you can link it to streaming services and create custom filters of what things you find objectionable (profanity, nudity, graphic violence, etc). Disney, Fox, and Warner Brothers sued claiming copyright infringement. My understanding is that they settled with those companies and are only doing it through Netflix and Amazon now.

Pity because I think there’s a real market for giving users the ability to decide for themselves what content they want to censor.

Violence there is, but love even more. It’s like real life and they censor it…

Watching now, as I usually do this time of year. On season 7, on Prime video. No such rating. “Drug use” is listed on some episodes, which is funny. Drugs from alien worlds.

What, are they flagging tretonin? I guess technically it’s a drug, but it’s more akin to insulin than narcotics.
