Well at least where theme tunes are concerned there are still some good ones.

Often in dark moments I found the theme from firefly weerdly apt, particularly because it was about a man who, while not an abuse surviver had certainly been through hell in the form of being on the losing side of a war:

"Take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand. I don't care I'm still free, you cant take the sky from me"
"take me out, to the black, tell 'em I ain't comin' back, burn the land and boil the sea, you cant take the sky from me"

And if you want to hear the full version Here it is thanks to youtube

I watched airplane on the TV at the weekend, always thought that Leslie Nielsen was funny in Police Squad, but theres a scene in the cockpit of the aircraft with a young boy that made me want to puke.

Did the writers truly think that the scene was amusing or funny? and everyone went along with it?

i find most jokes NOT funny, and many, if not most, are just plain offensive to me (especially "potty" humour or "zinger" insult comedy or "slapstick" sadism).

that being said...
i love a good laugh and a cleverly constructed joke, however rare, and i definitely do NOT support censorship.
i DO see the need for sensitivity, supervision and moderation in this forum.
the same goes for other privately-owned, publicly-accessed, purpose-specific word exchanges.

He actually deliver two punchlines on that boy. I clearly remember no one laughing at it...probably cuz it was over their head.

many times i have cracked a bad joke as a shield against shock or shame. i do not approve of wit being wielded as a weapon.
humour can heal as well as hurt. intention is not always clear, and what is inferred is not always implied.

I couldn't agree more. Humor has always been very beneficial to me so many times. Sometimes when depression or anxiety takes me to such a low spot and the tears seem almost overwhelming, I've found laughing can get me back to the surface.

Insult humor, or humor that mocks and makes fun of someone can be especially hurtful, and probably only a special type of thoughtless and insensitive person would enjoy it, but really almost ALL humor will be offensive to someone somewhere. I don't mean to slough off as insignificant the idea that some joke or situation comedy shouldn't be offensive or disgusting if you've been through hell with that very topic. But I can't think of any joke or funny situation that isn't going to offend someone. Maybe children's "knock, knock" jokes are the exception, and don't offend

Glad you liked this.

Firefly, though nothing to do with abuse at all is an amazing series, sort of a scifi meats western, though it's the distinct cast of characters and the well written plots and dialogue that make it what it is, ---- hence why it got canceled, though a major film was made just to finish off some elements of the story.
