Lol, I had no idea Sci-Fi had wrestling!!!

Bet your a** my kids won't be watching.
We actually gave up TV long ago due to the smut content. My son still plays on-line games and got subscribed to the newsletter and that's how I found out this.
It's things like this that make me so glad we don't watch TV.

Naked Sisters probably would've gotten more attention!

I went over to my Aunts last night and my little cousins were watching Nick. Back when I was growing up on Nick I watched Rocco's Modern Life and Doug. Now it seems Nick is trying to push the envelope. What I saw of the show last night there was a kid singing, one playing the cello (???), one on the drums, and a man in his 50's playing the tambourine. It doesn't matter what material the show contains. The name of the show itself suggest certain things children who watch this channel shouldn't see. If I were a parent I would be appalled.

Nick has always had some crude humor. I remember Rocco too. Spongebob has even had some iffy moments. But I too thought this was over the top. When I checked my e-mail this is what I saw:

Nick.com Subject: Check out "The Naked Brothers Band" Movie!

I did a double take on the sender just based on the subject alone. This isn't even an e-mail I would want my child to receive.

Right oh Heres my opinion.

I grew up watching nick from an early age probs about 5 or so i'm 21 now.

From this age I was watching shows like rocco, ren and stimpy etc. My parents were not bad parents either I grew up and am now studying at university, never broken the law, never been in any fights, don't drink much, don't smoke, don't sleep around.

Now to me its about the content of shows not names and even then kids are not as impressionable as one would seem. I remember one ren and stimpy where they were having a contest about who could cause themselves the most pain, cheese graters on arms etc. Did I do these things? no i did not.

Now to the title of the show. I knew about sex fom a early age, most kids do these days. But did I go around sleeping with loads of people or practice underage sex? nope I did not because of good parenting.

The naked brothers I have never seen however I think if its a show about a band forming and what they get up to this is something children should maybe see. Instead of getting kids to rot away in front of their xbox 360's all day they might actually develop a interest in music perhaps want to take it up due to this show.

Now I wave always found it odd how GENERALLY the american public react to anything sex related. The first example I can think of is the janet jackson superbowl thing. That was an accident, and i've seen worse things on the evening news over here. In italy I saw a music video at 12 midday where a naked man not censored was running down the street. But the thing which I found odd about the reaction the the janet jackson thing was The USA is the biggest creator and distributer of porn in the world, it is has one of the biggest sex industries in the world.

I leave you with a final question. Many pieces of art feature nudity would you stop your children from seeing the statue of david even though it is one of the most amzing pieces of artwork in the world?

The fact that one of the band members is a 12 or 13 year old girl makes it all the more funny. While i think the name of their band is just wrong, I dont believe that it automaticaly brings visions of pornography to peoples heads.
My son is 13, its just him and I in the home as my daughter lives with her mom.
I watch almost all cartoons with him and in my opinion The Disney Channel, the Family Channel and Nick have all three gone down hill and are showing more and more adult oriented content in their line up that dont belong there.
My son has already shown a dislike for this new show, the naked bros band but if he chooses to watch it, i wont stop him..

I hear what you're saying. Can we get to the fact that the name of the band is now THE SILVER BOULDERS not The Naked Brothers. The kids themselves changed the name to be more professional. Why does Nick feel they must promote the show with the old name.

Also, Almeister5000 you made a valid point with your statement however one key phrase stands out in it, you had good parents. Half of the American children are left to raise themselves as a product of two income families or single parent families. The TV is what raises our children in this country. The reason everyone has a response to sexuality like they do is because that is what is drilled into our heads day after day, program after program. All this country focuses on is sex or the suggestion of it.

Also, there are no 13 year old girls in the band that I know of. The preview I saw only had 4 boys, 9 and 6 years of age.

Also, no I wouldn't prevent my child from seeing art, there is quite a difference between art and porn. The statue is meant for viewing as a whole not just focusing on certain body parts to arouse desire.

As for music, the entire music industry has turned to smut as well. There isn't a song on the radio that doesn't include some kind of sexual reference. Sure if your kids like classical music and would like to play instruments they don't need a TV show to get them interested, they need a parents involvement, good role models.

I kind of thought this is normal at first...they usually make relate dumb things to children. Like underpants and poop and whatever. So I thought nakedness was just another form of that

This ultimately comes down to how one was brought up. My parents brought me up to say Yes Sir and Yes Mam'. To say thank you and just be respectful. There are a lot of parents with children they could care less about. There may not be a parent to tell a child the story on this television show. I'm looking into the future and I see this show either changing its title or ultimately being canceled. Bad publicity is not always good publicity. This publicity is hurting the show.

Why is it that our kids relate to such dumb things? This is what the media puts at them. They are taught these words as being cute and funny.

NAKED PICS>Click Here...........Is that cute or funny???

Man, I just remembered something my friend Rusty, and I did when we were about 6 years old..The means my story is over 30 years old..LOL

But, we had this chalk see, and there was this sidewalk. So we decided to write something nasty on the sidewalk..something dirty, and to us...funny..

know what we wrote?

We wrote the words "naked lady" on the sidewalk..and then we ran, so no one would catch us.. We were some bad kids huh?

But that's the thing, you thought it was funny but also thought it was nasty and bad, and ran away because it was wrong. Kids today think it's funny and acceptable (so does Nick apparently) but not nasty or bad because everybody they see in ads and on TV are half naked.

Good memory though, I have trouble remembering last month!!

I too grew up on Nick.. and have to say, that i tend to like it's programming more now than i did as a child. As for the show in question, there is a 13 year old girl on this program, and I didn't think once, when seeing the preview, that this was in any way sexually related. It is moving to Teen Nick though, according to what the commertials say. Personally.. Naked Brothers Band, sounds similar to the Barenaked Ladies, a band that consists entirely of men. To me.. this is probably a play on words, but that's my oppinion.

I don't really see why you would kick up such a ruckus about something that has just came out. If anything, the attention this board has giving it, accomplished what the Nick Execs probably wanted. Got tongues wagging, and kids curious.

JessicaS did you even read my post? I never said the content was bad or was about sex. I simply said that it gives off that innuendo. When I receive an e-mail, for my son, that says CHECK OUT THE NAKED BROTHERS, that raises some questions for me as a parent. If it didn't what kind of parent would I be? Does that mean my mind is filth, NO, it means there is a problem with the name to give me that impression.

As for the Barenaked Ladies, sure they came out, but my nine year old son was not listening to it. The little girl across the street sings along to Eminem songs about smacking asses does that make it appropriate?

I stir up such a ruckus about this because as a parent I still have some morals that I would like my children to have when they get older. Should the media be able to just do and say what they want? If something were labeled B**ch Please, but the show was only about some cute puppies at the pound, would that be ok? Should I just sit back and let it go? No, that is the problem with our society already. People too afraid to stir up a ruckus.

Also, they must have added the 13 year old girl later. The preview I saw didn't have any girl what so ever on it. That is not even an issue here anyway. I could care less if it was all girls or guys.

WATCH NAKED BROTHERS HERE!!!

The name is inappropriate when the band is now The Silver Boulders. If I changed my name I wouldn't be going around advertising my old one.

the content is not an issue either, just the name!!!

Wow. Upset about something on Nick. Hmm.
Hold on tight, and get ready for the ride. It is going to get worse.
Little girls being brought up thinking it is cool to wear the sexiest of clothes, engage in sexual activity as soon as possible.

Nothing like preteens wearing next to nothing, and getting tattoo's and piercings.
Yup, that's what is out there.

Yet, if they are looked at, or somebody mistakes one for being over 18 years old, they are sick, perverted. Twisted.

And, God forbid if you are a parent, and want your daughter to cover herself up, and have some moral values. You are then conservative, controlling, and not allowing your child to be herself.

As a matter of fact, my daughter got mad at me the other day, because, as I was in the middle of reading a book to her, with a theme of the new Troll Raver-type dolls, I had to stop. You see, the troll girl characters, it turns out, finally came of sexual age in this book for my 4 year old daughter.

Yup. In the book, the little troll girls, (who look like babies), celebrate that one of their group comes of age. And, do you know how they know? Because it turns out that all half-shirt wearing, baby-looking troll-girls have pierced bellybuttons. And, when they are of age, the gem in the pierced bellybutton glows! Isn't that great!?

My friend brought his girlfriend around our group of buddies for over a year. She was in her early 20's, was great looking, and was going to college. Could have been a model. We all thought he was very lucky.

Until he got in trouble. It turned out she was 15 years old. None of us could tell she was underage. But, she was.

The girl admitted her dishonesty, but, she wasn't believed. And, at the least, the judge had to give my friend some type of punishment. So, it turned out, that my friend had taken some sexy pictures of his girlfriend. So, my buddy, for the next 10 years, is on a Megan's Law Website that, as of January 2007, gives his picture, address, job and car description.

Isn't that nice? My friend's life is destroyed.
After all, we must make examples of these people. We have to make sure there is plenty of money going towards the new Megan's Law proposals that Law Makers keep coming up with. New ways to punish and exile.

Where are all the voices of outrage for the "oppressed"?
Does everybody in here really believe that there may be innocent people accused of other crimes, but not "Sex Crimes"? I guess we are all sure that there are no innocents in that group. eh?

Every week I have to talk my friend out of trying to kill himself.

So, make no mistake. Our children are being used. They are being used by the media to provide ratings, and to be groomed as perfect new consumers and robots. They are being used by the lawmakers to provide victims for new laws, departments, software, grants, etc.

As a matter of fact, statistically speaking, I am sure some of you forum members no EXACTLY what I am talking about.

That is why I added," that I know of"! Based on the preview I saw (link provided earlier) there was no girl in the band at that time. Excuse Nick for not providing me with all the information. But as I quoted, I could care less if the band were made of reptilians, the name would still be inappropriate. Plus to move the show to TeenNick (as JessicaS stated they were) then they probably needed to add a teen since the BOYS are only six and nine.

I saw adverts for this show while watching Nick with my nephew earlier today, and i must say i'm very surprised at the band name. I don't understand why they wouldn't just make it something more parent friendly.
