Alvin Shown the Door...
8 September 2010 | by (Byron Bay, Australia) – See all my reviews

Was on ABC TV here in Australia, if memory serves me right was at 8:30 pm. Had already watched the movie and its sequel "Alvin Rides Again" and as a 15 year old there was no way I was not going to see this.

Didn't last long though, was taken off the air because of complaints from viewers who found it obscene ( wish they had of just change channels, instead of forcing ABC to drop the show ).

I have no problem with nudity on television or in a movie, but I do have a problem with people who think, just because they don't like what they see then they believe I shouldn't watch it either. So much for free choice. Please! If you don't like something, thats fine. I respect your decision, at least respect mine and just grab the remote and change the channel, not my viewing habits.
