Austin Stories was killed off WAY before it ever jumped a shark. This one season wonder from the era when MTV stopped showing music videos and went into the crevasse of "Flavor of Love" still holds up after 15 years.
Every episode is full of one-line timeless gold like "Neckfurters" (the neck fat that bulges up on the back of your head and looks like hot dogs in a package), "Cotton Tops" (older women), "Dipes" (the all-too fresh smelling buddy every guy has). Between the one-liners are three very easy-to-like characters that seem to show up in all of our lives; Chip, the likable dork, Howie, the slick Easterner in Austin, and Laura, the intellectual single with the sharp comeback usually lost on her prey.
Definitely a series worth bringing back with the original cast, or a smart revival with the original cast as cameo players. Some network at some time will remember just how funny these 12 episodes were and cash in on even half of the original brilliance MTV held in its' palm.
