Re: How did TMP get a G rating?

I think TMP is a film that's more impressive on the big screen than the small. It's such a cinematic experience, built around these big immersive visual/musical set pieces, and on the big screen that might've been enough to satisfy and intrigue audiences despite the weaknesses of the story, whereas on the small screen it wouldn't have had the same impact -- especially with the film-to-video transfer technology of the time that washed out the colors and made it look much more drab.
