We have the series "Deadwood," as well as many other HBO and Showtime series. The only show we have had a complaint about was "Six Feet Under." The embalming scenes upset a patron, but his wife told him just because he didn't like it didn't mean it would bother other people. I think most people realize that the premium cable shows tend to be more graphic, etc.
Our library is in a county of about 129,000 people.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
