"I don't want to watch Cribs, I hate that fucking show"
-Boyfriend of the woman running the liquor store
That show is still on the air? Seriously? I would have thought in this period of austerity that MTV would no longer be producing this most gluttonous of entertainment. Now, don't get me wrong, if you work hard you have every right to do whatever it is you want with your money. But, I reserve the right to get pissed of when the shitty bass player from Good Charlotte lives in a mansion and has 3 Ferrari's and a Rolls Royce. I mean, really. And the fact the these rich and "famous" people are willing to invite a camera crew to their house to show off - it smacks of poor taste.
And just when you thought it couldn't or wouldn't get ANY worse, MTV outdoes itself. Ever seen Teen Cribs? I nearly put my foot through the TV when I first saw that show. "Oh, that's my 2009 Audi S4 rolling on 22 inch mudered out dubs. Oh what's that? I get my learner's permit in 18 months." Ugh. That's awesome that Mommy and Daddy can afford to buy a fucking stable of ponies, but don't throw it in my face "Kyra".
Speaking of the parents, I love the floating picture in picture box, in which they explain they needed to $15 million mansion "to keep the family" together. Do they realize they are probably tearing apart the lives of other families? Don't some of these go home and ask their parents, "why don't I have have my own indoor basketball court and a on-call trainer?" Shit, I would.
All that being said, there are moments of sheer AWESOMENESS. Case in point: the Redman episode.
