Can someone explain what "Mature Content" means? I just watched "Reclamation" and didn't find anything worthy of such an off-putting label.
One of the best definitions I've heard about that term is that it's something adults don't want children to see or hear. It includes but is not limited to nudity, vulgarity, extreme violence, things like that.

To be honest, I have a problem with using the word "Mature." That's putting a positive word for something several folks think is just plain wrong. I'd go with "Adult" since that seems to indicate things that grups can take in and not kids.

It's like the current use of the word "controversial." News folks (and I'm one of that group) often say that when what they really mean is it's wrong but they want it and so they couch it in better-sounding terms.

I realize that stating this is lighting a match for a flame war, but what the heck. It's Friday....
