It's MTV...I can't say I'm surprised., 5 June 2006
Author: kjpsychology from Canada

I watched this show because I've heard my friends rave about it. I thought it was just another show like the O.C. It turns out that it's worse. It's based on real people. And why's that worse? Because in real life they're much much more annoying, and bitchier. After 10 minutes, I couldn't continue watching. It was painful. I saw the episode where this guy drives this really nice old car and takes this girl on a date. They literally sit there at the table just staring at each other. Then they fast forward it to night. They still sit there. Not saying a single word. Then they leave and go to a jacuzzi and make out. WTF.

Before all you crazed Laguna fans start swearing at my review, I will certainly agree on one thing. MTV did a very good job. MTV did an amazing job convincing the world of misguided teens, that what the kids on the show have, is what everyone should want. The lifestyle, the stream of brand new luxury cars, black and white tie parties, designer clothing. They also did an amazing job setting up the camera work, buying the right songs to set up the "emotional atmosphere", so that the audience would feel some sort of compassion, envy or be emotionally touched.

In other words - MTV used these kids as marketing tools, and butchered the songs of artists by throwing them in while some random 2 kids start making out. They constantly whine about their lives and how much drama there is - WTF is their drama?! Because Kelly kissed Rachel's boyfriend during their cowboy themed party? It's funny how the show revolves around their lives, but their lives consist nothing more than nice clothes, surfing, partying, and getting more money from their parents to do all that.

In so many words - They're spoiled rich brats. Sure, many will argue, "You're just jealous, and want their life." Trust me - if being that rich meant you had to be an egotistical-self-centered brat, then no thank you. Just from reading up on people with that kind of profile, they are more psychologically messed up than you think. MTV cuts out all the crappy stuff you don't want to see - parental issues are especially common - you see them hand out car keys, but you never see them actually interact more than that. Everything's picture perfect - and I wouldn't't be surprised if MTV had a role in trying to set up certain situations to make sure it looks that way.

How about for a change, we see them make a difference in the community - see them actively help/volunteer for a foundation or a charity which involves actual work - and not just decorating rooms and handing out booze.

The fact that MTV made them stars, it adds more fuel to their burning fire of egoism, and I'd say within a couple of years, they will go down in flames - and tabloids will be there to pick it right up.

Bottom line is, if you want to get out of reality, and decide to escape to fantasy for awhile, don't watch Laguna beach to do so - you could read a Harry Potter book for f*ck's sake and get more out of that than to watch this show. Nothing but teenagers who constantly whine about how imperfect their lives are - how their friend betrayed them, and how life is unfair.

These kids need a serious wake up call - and so does the rest of the TV world. I don't know what's more pathetic - the kids on the show - or the kids who actually see these kids as role models/idols.
