When I started watching Pretty Little Liars, I was around the same age as Aria Montgomery, played in the show by Lucy Hale. Prone to a teacher crush or two myself, I was excited that Aria's dashing English teacher, Ezra Fitz (Ian Harding), actually reciprocated her affection, even though that was the Number One Thing teachers shouldn't do.Aria and Ezra's teacher-student affair was thrilling to me at the time — and that is absolutely problematic.

Tulip Fever Trailer Is Reportedly Too Risqué For TV

A new trailer for Tulip Fever has dropped, and apparently it's way too sexy for TV. Page Six reports that it's been banned by Fox and will not air on that channel. Apparently, the trailer for the R-rated film features a "love scene" and Fox can't deal. Given the skittishness of the MPAA to give R-ratings to movies that depict sexual pleasure, specifically of the female variety, (opting instead for an X-rating), the scene in question is most likely something laughably tame.Tulip Fever is a perio...
