Even though we let the boys select the video, the troop committee must
give their approval. We will usually let them go with "G" or "PG",
depending on the film. Usually someone of the committee has seen the film
and has an opinion on the content. Given free reign, the boys might not
select an appropriate film, so some adult guidance and approval is needed.
We give them freedom within certain boundaries.
Another way to view movies is to record them from the television where
they are censored for language and content. Of course with cable
programming these days, even television programming is often times not
