A friend of mine sent me a link to a list of movies and shows that are banned in Lebanon. Some of the stuff on the list was a bit shocking like an episode of Mad Men, two seasons of The West Wing and even The Nanny?! Weird stuff.

On the positive side at least they give reasons why. For example:

The West Wing (Season 1 & 2)
Reason: Offensive to Arabs

True Lies
Reason: Picturing Arabs as terrorists

The Nanny (TV Series)
Reason: Jew Content

The Great Escape
Reason: Produced by black listed company (MIRISH)

Reason: Obscene contents

Monty Python fans will be disappointed with the list since a lot of their movies are banned. Here is the link to the full list [PDF]
