I really want to know why people complain about things they see in Eastenders? Yes it is a TV show and it's made up however to be honest about 99.9% of all the things you see in Eastenders happen in real life. I have just read an article on the BBC News website mentioning about the complaints recieved about Eastenders' scene where Max Branning is drugged, put into a coffin and buried alive by his wife. In my eyes that's just TV but could happen somewhere in the world... however they recieve many complaints, but take a second and think about the news channels that tell you worse things.
If we go back years ago, Ian Huntley and the two little girls or Sarah Payne or even Madeline ... they have not been complained about. Though some might say "that's because there has been no violent pictures etc.. etc.. shown of them". Ok then, so what about when the news shows videos and stuff of people being blown up, beaten by police and also JFK (if any of you can remember watching it or viewing it on YouTube). John F Kennedy was shot ... yes shot and him being shot was shown on television! Why didn't that get complaints?!! It totally confuses me.
Just remember, television is television. A huge percentage of people buy television magazines and know what is going to happen in the next week of the soaps, so if you know what will happen and you're offended by it then a simple solution is DON'T WATCH IT! The same with if you know a program is going to be racist towards black or white people and you're the race that will be targeted, then don't watch it.
