Little Obscene House?

Remember the Little House on the Prairie show?

Well, Finland has just rated the DVD release of the children's television series as suitable only for adult viewing.

Seriously.

In a stupid attempt to save money, the heads at Universal Pictures decided not to submit the series to state inspection.

Turns out that Finnish authorities charge around $2.57 per minute to assess the correct age limit on films and television series.

The distributors who decide not to pay the fee can only sell their flicks with the sticker "Banned for under-18s."

Matti Paloheimo, Director at the Finnish Board of Film Classification, said "Long series can get quite expensive to check, and some use this exemption in the law to their advantage. Such unchecked material should not be shown to children publicly."

Though the show does remain popular in Finland and is shown weekly on Sunday mornings on one of their state-owned broadcasters.

Guess kids won't be able to buy the DVDs though!

    why pay 2 euros a minute for a long series that is probably not going to sell that well??! the fees for little house on the prairie would easily be over 2000 euros, but rating it high right away saves you from the extra fees.its a waste of time and MONEY so why make it a big deal……………..

    Re: karencarpenter – Get your facts straight. Finland is pretty liberal really..Schools teach sex-ed, hand out free condoms etc. Free education!
    They have a female president!
    The president is elected by direct popular vote and Finland also has a multi-party system, with three strong parties, in which no one party often has a chance of gaining power alone, and parties must work with each other to form coalition governments. Green party is very strong too! yay!
