No more Bill & Ted for China, all hope officially lost

At least, that's what the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television in China now claims based on new standards put into effect on March 31st. You know, so that the Chinese people don't get any funny ideas. That's why media involving "fantasy, time-travel, random compilations of mythical stories, bizarre plots, absurd techniques...ambiguous moral lessons, and a lack of positive thinking" are forthwith banned.

That sounds like all the good American TV. Ironically Bill & Ted never re-wrote history, but used historical figures to teach classmates about the importance of history. Well played Chinese government.
