Spoiler Alert Thursday

Because national holidays–especially foreign national holidays–always conspire to ruin my free time, I regret to inform the readership that there was literally nothing on TV this past week. Sure, I watched a number of episodes of “Golden Girls” and “Friends,” but that isn’t saying much. And, worse, other commitments resulted in me missing “General Hospital” this week. I don’t know if anyone was hurt or killed in the car bomb, how the questioning of Franco’s mother went, and what Franco is up to in general.

I don’t get AMC at home, but the cottage has satellite and gets AMC. Based upon how revolutionary and risque people say that show about the advertisers is, I really expected that channel to be great. Anyway, when watching “Terminator” last on AMC, I was shocked to discover that not only were their commercials, but that the swearing was edited out. I guess AMC is more like TBS than Starz!

  1. Since AMC is a basic cable channel rather than a premium-cable channel, it has to adhere by the general guidelines for US broadcast TV. They can push the boundaries somewhat, but not very far — whereas anything you pay for above and beyond the basic cable subscription can be hard-core porn if they feel like it.

  2. I did not know that. Do they also own the chain of movie theaters?
