After trying to watch "Last Tango in Paris" on Trio's heavily advertised uncensored month I felt compelled to write this to Trio feedback this morning:

([email protected])



Trio TV -

I settled back last night to watch the uncensored
"Last Tango in Paris" from your heavily advertised
June Uncensored Month on Time Warner Digital cable, for
which I pay a high monthly fee.

I was very dismayed when "truth in advertising" was not
met. Every four letter word uttered out of Marlon
Brando's mouth was bleeped out, and scenes where the
female lead was walking around a room topless was
covered up by red balls that matched the Trio banner at
the bottom of the screen. The Trio banner even said it
was uncensored.

Please tell me your definition of uncensored. It
certainly does not match mine.

Thank you.
Larry Price
an unhappy cable subscriber.

I thought the Huge red ball was hilarious
All they needed was a "Follow marlon's huge red ball" on the screen

So far no response from Trio.

I watched a bit of History of Pornography (I think part 2).
In certain scenes they blurred some parts. In others they were clear as day.

I thought it especially interesting that, in some of the classical paintings they showed, they blocked out the breasts of the female figures, but not the pubic region.:confused:

What is also interesting to me is that in Last Tango, during the famous "butter" scene, they blurred out Brando's fully-clothed buttocks. What exactly did they not want us to see?

This article explains that they decided to back out of it at the last minute. I actually like a lot of the music programming that Trio has been airing lately, but this shows a lack of integrity on Trio's part and it might just backfire on them.
