    Hmmm tough question.

    I personally think all three are completely fine if used well... but the problem is they so often aren't. But, those are the films I avoid. So i voted none.

    None of the above. Being a literary artist, I oppose censorship, so whatever they want to do, they can do and I still won't say they've gone too far.

    Sex, I feel, is too explicit on tv. Movies are one thing, but tv is very accessible.

    Sex in movies is fine, as everyone has a choice, but on normal TV, it's gotten a bit out of hand. It's so hard to watch anything these days without being assaulted with sexual innuendos in commercials. It's not that I personally care; I watch TV with my little brother and I have to constantly switch the channel.

    You what really disturbed me? Once, when I gave my brother (then 5) a good night hug and kiss on the cheek, he asked me, in essence, why I didn't French him! Obviously, TV was getting to his innocent mind, so I began watching less, especially not with him.

    Society is changing. Hollywood is changing with it. So I voted none of the above. Id like more of all of it.

    This is a rather broad question; it seems it would be better to ask which media has gone too far.

    In deference to this question; however, I think all of the above is a bit much-to the point where Hollywood relies on it to sell anything; it's pretty pathetic and excessive.

    However, the question never involved censorship so I don't know why anyone would infer that from the question. While freedom of expression is all well and good, I doubt everyone would allow any and all expressions in all mediums of expression. There is something called propriety-hence certain forms of expression being allotted only to certain media.

    As far as I'm concerned, you can do whatever you want in a movie. That's why they have ratings. I said none of the above.

    None of the above. If I had a problem with it, I wouldn't watch it, so again, still wouldn't affect me.

    None of the above. Those things don't really bother me, unless the violence is real. (But that's not the point of this thread, right?)

    None of the above.

    "Too far" is up to each individual. No one is forcing them to watch anything.

    All of the above except for violence. I don't feel that that is too out of hand, yet,but the other two are definitely getting out of hand,IMO. It's like they think the can't make a good movie anymore without rating it R. :)

    With TV, yes.

    Prior to my brother's birth, I didn't care about "how far" TV went, just like all of you. If you're flipping channels with a wide-eyes six-year-old next to you, things change.
