    Those were all so good. Aeon Flux (even though it was American), Akira, and Ghost in the Shell got me into Anime.

    That was also an incredible time for sketch comedy with The State!, Kids in The Hall, and Upright Citizens Brigade. You could just leave MTV on and always get something good.

    Then they had to learn how much money they could make off reality tv with The Real World, and everything went to shit. It’s a damn shame.

      Kids in The Hall

      My favorite sketch show of all time, believe it or not. I’m squishing your head.

      The Real World

      Even the first Real World was a lot better than later years of MTV. I think one thing that MTV never gets credit for is helping to normalize homosexuality in US culture, which they did by always having a gay cast member in the show.

        I was hooked on the Real World. just random people that looked so cool living in a crazy cool place. But honestly I’d say it really dropped off after Seattle or New Orleans. Then it was just painfully obvious manufactured controversy. They did Stephen dirty on Seattle as they REALLY played up the closeted homosexual thing with him. like almost spoon feeding it to you.
