Or Peculiar Neighbors. That's what they called Armistead Maupin's More Tales of the City which was broadcast last night on 8tv, "la privada de Catalunya". We definitely saw the "european version" which featured plenty of full frontal and rear nudity. I especially liked seeing the furry Michael Tolliver (Paul Hopkins) naked. The sex scenes were much more explicit than the expurgated DVDs that I own. 8tv did display a "18" in the upper-left corner of the screen, but there were no "viewer discretion advised" notices.
This reminds me of a recent film I saw, Gorditos, in a cinema. The trailers, which of course are not MPAA-rated here, showed a couple of three-ways to spur interest in the films. Gorditos started off with the main character revealing his naked furry body in the first scene.
