  • A naturist themed Murdoch Mysteries on Netflix

    I just binge watched the last of the Murdoch Mysteries available on Netflix. It is Canadian TV show that takes place around 1900. A police detective uses the latest science to solve mysteries. One of the last shows takes place in a naturist encampment where a murder was committed. There was some judgement by the characters but the naturism was handled with both surprise and humor. There was no frontal nudity but buttocks was shown. Couldn't do that in the U.S. I think shows like this put out there the idea that nudism/naturism is a choice someone can make. What are your thoughts about naturist themed TV shows.

    I have seen main stream network TV shows do episodes in Nude resort type situations before, but with very restricted and creative camera work. Cable channels have been much more liberal with the notion of nude for no apparent reason or to promote the story... American Horror Story comes to mind...but mostly backside shots. There was also a liMited run real estate show called buying nude where folks were looking to buy homes in nude communities in FL but while the buyers were nude, there were deliberate placement of furniture, etc to hide the "jiggly bits". Bottom line, good TV is built around a good story and good writing so I fail to see where general and open nudity that does not advance a story line would draw an audience. IMHO...

        I support the television producer's attempts at depicting simple nudity as a integral part of our lives; even on a show like "Naked And Afraid" (NAA). It seems there are so many people not only comfortable with but completely dependent upon clothing for their existence, that a show like NAA encourages some to think: 'What if I lost all of the comforts of life tomorrow?' - I am not suggesting this fundamental idea EVER played into the minds of the show's producers, but it might have at some point. The very idea of that is an important consideration in and of itself.

        Our world is, for the most part, a comfortable place filled with modern conveniences! So much so, that a good number of people have never experienced living without air conditioning, running water, easy access to a car or public transportation, or food whenever they wanted it; and there is a danger in that "reality". A civilization that becomes overly dependant on modern conveniences and which loses its appreciation of HOW TO get shelter, water, food and medical attention COULD BE doomed to a miserable end one day. Not to be morbid or anything, and not to steer this discussion thread off course, but "understanding" our most basic existence AND most basic needs, is something very important. "Simple nudity is good" and that should be a well-known truth of living also!

          So true. Being able to choose to be nude, in comfort, is actually a luxury benefit of modern life. "Reality" tv shows like "Naked And Afraid" actually recreate ancient scenarios of inescapable discomfort. For modern "reality," maybe they should instead be something like "Naked in the Mall" about shopping nude in warmth in winter and in aircon in summer.
