To which the proper response is: SEINFELD?
SEINFELD, after all, is a product of a culture of censorship: Episodes of the show that deal with mature themes attack their delicate subject matter through metaphor and innuendo--and with dialogue expertly constructed to avoid the ire of network censors.
So how will ClearPlay go about purging risqué content when what's risqué occurs between-the-lines, and without violence, nudity or strong language?
In censoring SEINFELD, the company will face a slew of interesting choices. I'm genuinely curious about where they'll draw the line.
