would like to see a forum category for movies and tv. I think it would pull in more discussions than sports or the current event sections -well, for sure it will pull in more than sports. It would be nice to all all the trailer links posted in one area where they can be easily found. move and tv discussions get lost too quick in the off topic section with the number of posts there.

Not against it. Could picture the "download free" spammers finding a perfect place for their garbage.

If that were the case, I think the off topic section would be full of those type of spammers. I would like to see something separate where it would be easier to continue a thread on, lets say doctor who, agents of shield, or whatever instead of having to search for it or continuing starting a new one, missing out on what was said in a previous discussion.

Not against it though I do see the point about spam, however, we deal with it in other places so reporting as usual should work.

Let's see how this thread goes. If there's enough interest, it should be easy enough to set up, and the old TV/movies threads can be moved over to get things going.

I've added 'TV & Movies' to the thread title to get more attention.

I don't see why not, it certainly can't hurt to have a cool "TV and Movie" talk section.

However, I recommend that the description of the section says "Warning: Spoilers!"

If you decide to do it, make it for only PG/PG13 shows.

That means popular shows such as Game of Thrones will not be discussed.

Rather then controlling the shows, let's agree to keep it at PG13 content instead. Discussing any movie or TV show is acceptable as long as it meets a family friendly status.

The other possible option would be to have another section for older folk discussing the above PG/PG13 shows, of course we have no real way to tell who is what age and anyone could put their age as older.

BG has a good point......programs/movies above PG-13 are questionable. Then again, some of the stuff shown on Disney is out of line IMO. Don't know about a group for R rated programs......that would include Black Sails, Outlander, etc..

I may bring up some older movies/shows.......my two favorite channels are Turner Classic Movies and EnCore Westerns. Most movies I don't see until they are quite old......when they are shown on premium cable....

I'm all in favour of such a forum.

I don't, however, believe you can restrict the subject matter to only PG13 shows. There are plenty of ways to discuss more adult films while keeping within the decency rules. Just because a film is regarded as 'Adult' (I do NOT mean pornography) does not mean that one cannot have a discussion.

I think you should be able to talk about any show or movie as long as the discussion is within the forum rules. As long as you are talking about plot or how you like it or if the trailer is approved for all audience, then it should not matter. You also have to remember, the rating system is not the same for all countries.

And many older PG or PG13 movies would be rated R in today's world.
