“Uhhhh, heh heh”
By Lisa Stansby, 11th Grade Staff Editor
Tonight marks the return to television for Beavis and Butthead, an old show on MTV that there was a movie about, too. MTV must be thinking the 90s are back or something, because why else would they be putting this lame show back on the air? First of all, no one I know watched this show when it used to be on. Second of all, doesn’t MTV realize that times have changed way too much for shows like this to be funny?
For instance, everyone I know is not going to watch this show. And if you look at Twitter, it’s all like “OMG, LOLLLLZ, Bevis n Buthed is lame” and “@MTV pls show more teen momz not beaivs butthead showz #notwatchin.” I think MTV should pay more attention to what kids are like now before they put shows on that we are not going to watch, anyway.
Beavis and Butthead are from when there were no cell phones, so it’s obvious why they are just hanging out on their couch and being stupid. There was no YouTube or internet when this show was on, so what did they talk about you ask? They made fun of videos, mostly, because old videos were not as good as videos now, so it wasn’t even that funny. So they know they can’t make fun of new good videos so are going to watch “Jersey Shore” and “Teen Mom” and make fun of them. So, that’s exactly what we do. Why is MTV putting on a show about two guys from the 90s doing what we do?
In closing, I don’t think that any of my friends will be watching “Beavis and Butthead” tonight because it is a show that is not something kids can relate to today at all. Maybe if they could have more stuff from now it would be better or something, but kids now are too different to watch a show that was famous in the 90s with 90s things that no one has today or aren’t invented yet then, too.
