On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, we decided to dive a little deeper into the history of movie and TV ratings. Where did they come from, who uses them in modern times, why do they use them? We especially take a look at if we should possibly reevaluate how reliable and seemingly flexibly inconsistent ratings tend to be. It's an in-depth and enlightening discussion on how society looks at movie and TV ratings. 

Also on this episode, our Movie Manners topic returns to look at theater distractions, viewers watched over 4 trillion minutes of TV during the 21-22 season, TV's Bloody Friday strikes again, Star Wars gains another series, and much more!
