An Interesting Show
3 February 2004 | by (South Boston, Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

This is one of the better shows on MTV.

True Life is a documentary-like show which follows the lives of people with that episodes' subject and get into the world of that subject, one of the earlier episodes was about the porn industry, which was interesting because they said that they get everyday women who do it for extra cash and one of the girls in the video got HIV from it. Other episodes are more funny like "I'm Obsessed With My Dog," and "I Have Embarrassing Parents." The earlier episodes were hosted by Serna (something) and some of the newer episode Gideion Yago goes to places (one he went to Iraq.) This show is very interesting and one of my favorites, if you haven't seen it, you should. It's not like the trash that's on MTV, it's decent and well true (that's why it's called True Life!)
