Re: “Bad Reception: The Feud Between CableOne and Turner

The Hallmark Channel and the Game Show Network should be used in prisons as punishment for misbehavior.

Re: “Bad Reception: The Feud Between CableOne and Turner

CableOne is the Kmart of providers. They have continually cut quality for commercial crap. IFC, Sundance and now TCM are gone from their listings - they recommended their viewers watch AMC in place of TCM. TCM is commercial-free, AMC is full of ads as it can be.

Here in AZ, they yanked the channels and have NOT replaced them with those other channels.

Re: “Blue is the Warmest Color: Banned in Boise?

Thank you, George, and thank you Boise Weekly, for this important piece of reporting that reminds us that--despite the sense of living in a progressive bubble in Boise--censorship exists by design, and through complicity. Do we really need to be drinking wine and beer to watch a movie? If that's what's restricting cultural autonomy, then perhaps it's time for The Flicks to consider that--as progressive as it might seem to offer liquor to their patrons--it would be more progressive to offer true international cinema, instead of booze.

Re: “Bad Reception: The Feud Between CableOne and Turner

We have this problem in Kirksville, MO. Cable one is ripping us off. A 50% increase? Look at ESPN and then look at TBS, TNT, CNN etc. Then bundle them. Really not much of an increase.

Re: “Blue is the Warmest Color: Banned in Boise?

NC-17 is just borderline porn. It's just a rating for hack directors who don't know how to tell a real story, so they use nudity and violence instead. Or more often than not, it present pedophilia (straight or gay) in a harmless light. Good for Boise!!! Boise rocks!!

Re: “Blue is the Warmest Color: Banned in Boise?

Apparently in Boise, the venue for watching lesbian porn while drinking beer will be the historic one... in privacy of your own home, holding your beer in your non-dominant hand. (nudge-nudge, wink-wink)

Re: “Bad Reception: The Feud Between CableOne and Turner

Cableone is one of the most archaic and bullying cable companies still left. In our market they block any and all attempts at letting competition in. They are an absolute horror to deal with. Their reception is actually WORSE than satellite and if it wasn't for them being the only high speed internet in town I would kick them to the curb. I hate this company with every fiber of my being and wish them only the worst.

Re: “Blue is the Warmest Color: Banned in Boise?

Except there are a few Christian films coming soon to Edwards and I see no one complain about them. Certainly no rioting. It's a strange concept, but if I don't want to see something, I don't go see it. I don't prevent others from seeing it if they wish.

Re: “Blue is the Warmest Color: Banned in Boise?

Oh Puleeeez! You people bitch and whine about censorship and getting the ACLU involved over a movie that I'm assuming is pretty much porn with a story, but then if the movie in question was about something you don't like, and judging by the context of the comments, I would say a movie that's actually pro Christianity, you'd probably be rioting in the streets, saying that this forcing religion down your throats. Grow up and deal with the fact that there are other people in this world that don't think exactly like you do, and Idaho happens to be a place where we live. Don't like it? Move to California where morality has absolutely no meaning or value, 'cuz that's "progressive".

Don't tell the morality police, but I was drinking a beer while watching the trailer.

Re: “Bad Reception: The Feud Between CableOne and Turner

You think your cable bill is unrelated to what Cable One pays for programming? I don't feel like paying higher cable fees and I don't see how Cable One can figure out how to get TBS without caving to Turner's fee and bundling demands.

Clang!

Cable One's mantra ... "It's just common sense."

Not being able to figure out a way for your subscribers to see baseball postseason defies all common sense.

Zing!

Re: “Blue is the Warmest Color: Banned in Boise?

Good thing we have our conservative limited government is here to tell us what films we can see.
Idaho proves to be bass-ackwards as usual.


Way to go, Idaho!

When I was a kid in ID I never heard many popular soul (read black artists) on the radio.
This censorship causes ignorance and the brings bigotry

Re: “Blue is the Warmest Color: Banned in Boise?

Hmm.... I did not know about that conflict of rules. Seems like the film -- The Sessions, which I saw at the Flick's -- violated many of the specific clauses of the indecency ruling. (I'm not complaining, I thought the film was fantastic and bought the DVD when it became available.)

So, where do we have to go to see this film? Portland?
