The "KIDS" of television, 3 September 2006
Author: lorcanfaol from United States

If you want to see a bunch of spoiled, mentally retarded, petty, trendy, childish, immature, cloned living jokes without personalities go about their sheltered and pathetic teenage lives, this is the show for you.

The guys: All of the guys on this show are the guys you can see at any mall. Go to the mall, those are the guys on this show. Guys that if you talked to, you'd find that the only things they care about are how their hair looks, whether or not they should pop their collars, whether or not that blond girl with the tits has a boyfriend, and what to eat in front of said girl on a date so he can impress her. I want to personally stab these guys with a pitchfork.

The girls: The girls are all completely brain dead. Unfortunately they, like the guys on this show, represent your average, run of the mill teenager with the most inane interests and a shallow, pitiful existence. Also like the guys, these girls are the kinds you will find in any mall. The girls who have cell phones permanently stuck on their ears, shopping bags in their hands, giggling like airheads while twirling their hair with their fingers... yeah. Those girls.

I don't understand the point of this show. I really don't. As with all reality television, this is directed toward the most simple minded fools on the planet. Some maggot at MTV got the idea : "well look at all these other stupid reality shows out there... there's a show about a bunch of hand picked lemmings who "survive" on an "island" through all of the "dangers" and "difficulties", like not having a king sized bed to sleep in, not having a manicure every day, and not having TV. That show got huge ratings! And it was completely stupid! Then there is American Idol. A bunch of talentless losers singing songs written for uncreative people, hoping to "earn" themselves some fame and fortune and a record contract! Hell yeah! This show completely craps all over the notion of decent music and art and really brings the value of music down to a consumerist level of completely rotten standards! That show got huge ratings, too! There are tons of reality shows out there for people with IQ's of 70. But I bet if we could make an even dumber show, for people with IQ's between 20 and 30, we would REALLY have something!" So this guy went and asked the MTV Board of Uncreative Ideas for Stupid Television Shows, the same people who brought you TRL, Cribs, Pimp My Ride, and Real World, to come up with an idea for the dumbest show that television has ever had. They said "we don't think that even we can come up with something as stupid as you want. But we know who can." So they went out to a local high school and gathered up the dumbest looking bunch of kids they could find. They brought them back to the MTV THINK ROOM and threw them in there, telling them to come up with an idea for the best TV show they could think of. Six hours later, the door was opened and they showed the MTV PEOPLE their idea.

"We thought it would be a great idea to actually send an entire camera crew out to California, waste the time of directors and producers and editors and lots of other production crew people on a show about a bunch of typical mindless high school aged kids who have a bunch of typical mindless, menial, predictable, hopeless drama in their lives. Not only do they have this drama, but they let this meaningless drivel actually consume their entire being and control who they are, so that they all become just like us - complete wastes of life and air." The MTV Board of Uncreative Ideas for Stupid Television Shows knew this was their ticket. It was complete garbage! Exactly what MTV needed more of. So they ate it up, and immediately got to work. They sent a camera crew out to California with the instructions "find the most trendy, air headed, worthless teenagers you can find, and tell them you want to make them famous and put them on TV. They are all suckers so they'll do whatever it takes." And thus LAGUNA BEACH was born. And now average teenagers from around the world who just got home from school and just finished babbling and yapping and bamboozling themselves over pitiful drama with their friends can sit in front of the TV and re-live the very same kind of mind numbing drivel that they obviously don't experience enough of in their lives. "OMG!!! SHE HAZ DA SAME PROBLMZ I DO!! LOL!!! U RULE LAGUNA BEACH!!!!" And since this show is incredibly awful, it will run for probably 15 seasons.
