American Horror Story has been pushing the boundaries of basic cable restrictions with all of its implied nudity, which is basically nudity where you film it in such a way as to miss out on the fun parts so it passes network censors. That entire process seems rather absurd to me. Like my religious friend Benedict Bob who uses slightly different curse words than the real curse words because that's technically not swearing in his mind. When you glare at somebody and tell them to fook off, it's pretty much the same.
Such it is that Lady Gaga appeared topless in AHS save for some pasties which kind of ruined most everything while trying to produce a something something. Why anybody would assume that no pasties would destroy the minds of impressionable young people while pasties is a saving grace on a problem that doesn't even exists is beyond me. We did get to see Gaga mostly topless, so there is that. And, you didn't have to sit through 60 minutes of the show. So also that. This world has everything in it if you're just willing to take the time to parse it properly. If only we had a remote control on the real world. Working on it. Enjoy.
