The Broadcasting Standards Authority has dismissed a complaint made by Family First against TV3’s Californication.

Family First complained that the show’s repetitive use of offensive words in such a short space of time breached standards of good taste and decency.

The show, which screened on April 18 at 9.30pm– an hour after the Adults Only watershed – and which was prefaced by an Adults Only warning detailing the use of offensive language, featured 45 swear words in the first 30 minutes. This included what Family First described as “the most offensive” word.

The BSA however declined to uphold the complaint, saying that the show screened well after the 8.30pm watershed and the language fitted the “narrative context” of the series.

Family First claimed that by not upholding complaints against Californication, the BSA has “allowed a progressive lowering of standards to the point of hard pornography and extremely offensive language being common fare on our free-to-air channels”

Fans of the phenomenally successful Downton Abbey will be delighted to hear that series two of their favourite Edwardian drama will debut on the channel soon.

Prime Channel Manager Kathy Wright said the first series proved to be just as popular with New Zealand viewers as it did with its British fans, resulting in record ratings for Prime Television.

“As a result there’s now a lot of hype and anticipation around what the second series will deliver, therefore we are planning to bring it to Kiwis’ living rooms as soon as possible,” she said.

The broad-appeal drama boasting romance, loyalty, deception and scandal, quickly found a home in the hearts of Kiwi viewers, cementing Downton Abbey as the channel’s highest ever rating drama.  From the pen of Emmy® award-winning writer Julian Fellowes, the series portrays the highs and lows of the aristocratic Crawley family and the servants who work for them, with a stellar cast led by critically-acclaimed actress Dame Maggie Smith and actor Hugh Bonneville.

Downton Abbey scooped up an impressive six awards in this week’s 63rd Primetime Emmy® Awards, including Outstanding Miniseries or Movie;  Julian Fellowes for Outstanding Writing for a Miniseries, Movie or Dramatic Special; Maggie Smith (as Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham) for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie; and Brian Percival for Outstanding Directing for a Miniseries, Movie or a Dramatic Special.

As series two unfolds, the lives of the Crawleys and the servants have been changed forever with the declaration of the Great War at the end of the first series.

Promoted to Lord Lieutenant of Yorkshire, Robert (Hugh Bonneville) has new responsibilities and so does Downton, although the veritable head butler Mr Carson (Jim Carter) will no doubt be doing his utmost to ensure that standards have not slipped, even in the face of war.

A host of new faces are joining the first series cast favourites for the new season, including Zoe Boyle, Iain Glen, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Amy Nuttall and Cal Macaninch.

Screening details for the eight-part second series of Downton Abbey will be released soon.

Facebook has announced that it will be partnering with entertainment brands such as Netflix and Hulu in order to add television and movie-watching capabilities to the social networking website.

The announcement was made by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg at this week’s f8 conference.

The service will allow Facebook users to show off what they are watching in real-time as well as see what that their friends are watching. The aim of this set-up is to draw more people into consuming TV and movies on Facebook.

A personalised Timeline will summarise each user’s watching activities and top shows and movies will be put on display for their friends to see.

Other companies to join forces with Facebook include Flixster, DirecTV, IMDb and Miso.
