    Did anyone see this surprisingly good VH1 Original Movie last night? I was really surprised how much research they did (they even quoted some parts of Zappa's Book)

    Only downside, the guy who played Zappa didn't know what the hell he was doing.

    But anyway For those of you who missed it I'm sure it's going to be played constatntly on VH1.

    I thought it was quite amusing. Although the film had a clear bias, they did manage to lampoon everybody involved which was great. I was pretty surprised when Dee Snider dropped the F-bomb, since they'd been bleeping out the word for most of the broadcast.

    Can you guys give us a little more info? I have no idea what you're talking about, but I'm interested in anything involving Frank Zappa.

    Dee Snider and Frank Zappa listed together usually refers to the PMRC hearings. Is this a movie about that?

    I was surprised to hear that as well. Is that the first time that word has been used on basic cable or broadcast tv outside of those scared straight specials and other reality programming? I have always wondered what keeps basic cable from showing more adult programming. I know pornography can't be shown but what keeps a cable channel from showing a show like the sopranos uncut as long as its after prime time? Is it just the advertisers or are there regulations?

    Basic cablefor the most part self adheres to broadcasting (i.e.networks/over the air) standards. No real legal reason for them not to be more frank and open other than commercial concerns.

    I caught the last half hour of this and heard Priestly utter the "S" word as well. However, South Park I think STILL holds the record for use of THAT word!

    Check out The Shield. All kinds of language flies on this show, it's also my favorite show (until Big Brother 3 comes on).
