It’s no secret that when it comes to certain television shows, there are lovers, and there are haters.
Are you more of a Friends fan than a Seinfeld? Hate The Big Bang Theory but love How I Met Your Mother? Prefer to binge on Southpark rather than The Simpsons?
It’s all good…differences of opinion are more than welcome here. You do you, viewers.
In most cases, the drama surrounding certain shows can be boiled down to just that: the fact that different people have different tastes.
Rosie Waterland and Laura Brodnik speak with Jo Abi about The Big Bang Theory during The Binge and things get a bit heated.
But other times, things go one step further and shows – and even specific episodes of shows – prompt calls from angry viewers for them to be banned from our screens.
Yes. Banned. Vanished. Gone from the show’s history, never to be seen again.
Here are some memorable TV moments that many wanted off our TV sets for good for a whole lot of reasons you probably never, ever considered.
Peppa Pig – Mister Skinnylegs
What could possibly be wrong about a show based on the lives of a family of pigs and their animal friends? (Besides those bizarre reports that the show could cause autism in children).
In this particular episode, Peppa befriends a spider. Which, is kind of cute, except when you consider the fact that befriending a spider in Australia is not such a good idea.
Our sunburnt country is home to the two most venomous spiders in the world, so encouraging children to pick up and play with their eight-legged friends was not considered a great idea, and the episode was banned from being shown in Australia.
