“OH! I did NOT want to see that!”
That’s pretty much what you’ll be saying after watching your first hour of french TV. Beware when watching the news, medical shows, and documentaries. In the US there are lots of laws on censorship of television and network screenings of motion pictures. Here in France though those censorship do not exist and TV is not meant for the sqimish. TV footage is extremely graphic. For example a show about massacres in Africa caught me REALLY off guard. THe show showed very detailed and disturbing images that I would have NEVER seen in the US. The same can be said for medical procedures on film and sexual scenes in films.
So be careful flipping the channels because you might see something you would prefer to forget.
