I know at one point in time I enjoyed you but itâ€™s been so long I canâ€™t remember when that time was. Iâ€™m assuming it was back when, you know, you were about music. Thatâ€™s besides the point, we all know you are a joke with your crappy â€œdatingâ€ shows, the real world which is anything but real anymore and of course your reality shows that take big steps in dumbing down our society. Thank you for that btw.
I can look past all that because, we all know that is you and most of us just ignore your attempts at programming. I canâ€™t, however, look past your choice to make an Americanized version of the British show Skins. I must ask, are you smoking crack?
First of all, this is a tenacious show with actual plotlines, which is something you really donâ€™t know anything about. This is about real kids who swear, have sex and do lots of other naughty thingsâ€¦things I know you donâ€™t have the balls to do. I already read you will not include nudity or four letter words. I can honestly say I donâ€™t know how this show can work without the word fuck in it but maybe thatâ€™s just me.
Second, one of the reasons I think the show works so well is because itâ€™s British. I donâ€™t know if itâ€™s the accents or the location or all of the above but the idea of unruly American teenagers just makes me yawn.
I can remember when America tried to do their own version of Coupling. Iâ€™d say it was laughable but it wasnâ€™t even that, it was uncomfortable, which isnâ€™t funny in my book. What are we going to do next? Re-make Faulty Towers or Black Books?
If you had any sense Mtv, youâ€™d stop this charade and go back to what you do best, crap reality tv. But we all know you have no sense so, Iâ€™ll just amuse myself watching this either faith or just be another step in making America look pathetic.
Four Letter Word
ps. This is advertising they are already using for the show and I just kind of think they are trying too hard.
