“Little House on the Prairie” is rated “R” in Finland

“Little House on the Prairie” is rated “R” in Finland


It costs 2 EUR a minute to have video content rated. Little House on the Prairie is a long series and would cost too much to rate, so the company marketing it decided to market it as K-18, which is what movies get when they are unrated. It is equivalent to “R” in the USA.  It has gotten negative international attention. I wonder what kind of people they are over in the rating bureau who wouldn’t know what kind of rating to give Little House on the Prairie and would have to charge the full 2 EUR a minute for the whole series. I wonder if there is a need for competition for this bureau -is it a government monopoly?
