There was a warning before Silent Witness yesterday evening that it contained scenes of a sexual nature - this, despite the extended scenes of murder, family rows, bodies splayed open and guns being waved around. The short scene of a sexual nature was fairly mild for a quarter to ten, merely involving a spot of humping viewed through a shed window.
Personally I wasn't that offended.
You do have to wonder where our priorities are with all of this stuff though - maybe you could have a little rolling credits sequence at the beginning of programmes detailing all of the naughtinesses that might crop up during your viewage. Warning: contains scenes of extended stuff.
Do you know what though? I don't want to be warned of upcoming nipple slippage, or extraneous fucks - I would simply rather programme makers were more discerning and didn't put these things into their programmes in the first place. I wouldn't mind if Silent Witness just managed to stick to people dying and they try and work out what happened by doing some tests and that.
I would also be quite happy if Eastenders was a mildly interesting reflection of real society - Jeremy Kyle is fruity enough, we know these things wouldn't be dull, but dodgy baby storylines? I think these scriptwriters are bored.
Either that, or they have a sweepstake going with Jeremy Clarkson as to who can get the most complaints each week. Feckless Mexicans indeed.
