Taboos
Incest - The taboo topic of incest was taken to task in the sensitively produced made-for-TV movie Something About Amelia (written by William Hanley) broadcast January 9, 1984.

Something About Amelia starring Roxana Zal and Ted Danson

The controversial film told the story of teenager (Roxana Zal) who informed her mother (Glenn Close) that her father (Ted Danson) was forcing her to have sex with him. Zal won an Emmy for her performance.

The topic of incest was later portrayed in the TV-movie Not in My Family (1992) starring Joanna Kerns and George Grizzard about a family devastated by a daughter's revelation of parental rape.

The script included dialogue like "Let's play ride the horsey. That's what he would call it" as a woman named Maggie (Shelley Hack) recalled encounters with her father.
