So I’ve dipped into the MTV television dumpster to see what they are showing now aside from the pregnant at 16 and now canceled skins to find actually a surprisingly responsible program, AWKWARD. It has the same feel of MY SO CALLED LIFE from almost a decade ago, just updated. The big difference is that it deals with the same ‘ol teen high school dramas but without the typical MTV over-the-line on-camera exploitation of teens in let’s say “adult situations”. Think GILMORE GIRLS meets PARTY OF FIVE. I’ll have to see how it goes in the end but could this mean the start of a maturing of the 30yr old network, finally, or will it be the one season wonder like MY SO CALLED LIFE?
