Okay, I realize that stations are getting further and further from what their names suggest (Dumb and Dumber has been on Cartoon Network, and when was the last time MTV or VH1 played a video?), but this is ridiculous.
I've seen them play movies that are historically-based, or even historical fiction, and seen no problem with it.
But this? Yeah, it's one of the best movies ever made, and when I saw it on the guide I turned there just to see if I could catch Taylor's line, "Get yer stinkin' paws off a-me, you damn dirty ape!" (Turns out I only had to wait five minutes!) But what could possibly be the justification for showing a great sci-fi parable on the History Channel?
I mean, this movie has nothing to do with Hitler. It should be on Discovery.
