The DVD Promise

My wife and I sat down the other night to watch a movie. As the DVD loaded, we were presented with a decision: do we want to watch the theatrical version, rated PG13, or do we want to watch the Unrated version?

Very interesting. I remember when DVDs first came out, and how cool it was going to be that we would be able to choose the version we wanted to see. We would be able to rent a movie, and decide whether we wanted to watch the PG, PG13 or R version. Depending on what your family was interested in, the DVD would provide the technology to allow you to choose what content you wanted in your home.

And now they have finally delivered on that promise. But of course, the Hollywood producers missed the point. Leave it to them to get it backwards.
