Surprisingly Funny and Good
16 May 2013 | by GoldenBoughSwingSee all my reviews

There are plenty of variables that would make one think this show could be horrible: 1. It's on MTV 2. It's about a teenager trying to be famous 3. It's about reality TV 4. It's on MTV

But the show is a surprisingly funny AND poignant satire/parody of people's lust for fame. I would've thought the main character would be annoying to watch, but the way the show is written, the awkward situations he gets himself into are hilarious. I'm a fan of awkward humor shows (ie The Office, Peep Show, etc.) where it makes you cringe sometimes because the situations get so awkward for the characters.

And the show's poignancy comes from how the main character's selfish conquest for fame affects his most important, long term relationships with family and friends.
