TBS, USA....such great movie options

I don't watch R rated movies. Yes, it's true. I don't watch them. I figure "eh, they're just movies", and there are plenty of good PG-13's, PG's, they have G movies anymore? out there for my enjoyment. I'll be even more honest - I avoid some PG-13's as well. There are just some things contained in R (and some PG-13) movies I don't find...necessary (for lack of a better term). I don't feel I am missing enough of the "art and genius" of these films to compensate for materials that connote an R rating (extreme violence, sex, and language). THAT said - I want to sing "Hurrahs!" to cable TV movie spots. Really. They are able to show those movies that I choose not to watch in the theaters, and show them on TV without worrying about the extreme violence, the "uncomfortable" kind of sex scenes, and hard language. Take that out - and I feel I still get the full movie, well, I guess at least the bits I prefer to limit my experience to. Just a little patience, and I get to participate in the movie genius that many of these movies portray. I can discuss the movies too! a couple years. Right now, Wedding Crashers. Hilarious. Cheers to USA, TBS, TNT, A&E, and all those cable channels that allow tender souls like myself to still enjoy the movie for the movie's sake, without being too traumatized. ;)
