The Chinese TV serials will now be curtailed. It is the way to hold the citizens by the short and curly and keep them in a straight line. Any deviation, the producers will be made to walk the plank. This will, as per some, kill creativity and talent. While there are others who feel that by tweaking words like 'excessive' and 'not encouraged' business will be as usual, of course with modifications. There is also the view that the guideline would "encourage original and better productions" and do way with "slipshod and illogical productions that blindly follow market trends". Are these guideline given by the Chinese Govt through its watchdog as good as some sort of a censorship that aims at mind and thought control or is it a way to cleanse the system of commercial mindless churn?
