Over the years, and most recently with Awkward., MTV has tried its darndest to prove to the world that they "get" their teenage audience. It's no easy feat to capture the high school experience, but it shouldn't be rocket science, either. Let's take a look and see which of MTV's attempts at representing the four best years of our lives made the grade, and which were total failures.
Though it's been available on iTunes for years, for those of you who still collect non-digital forms of media, the physical DVD release of Nickelodeon's much-beloved cowboy comedy Hey Dude is finally out this week. Like millions of other children of the '90s, I was a huge fan of the show as a kid, so when we got our hands on a copy of the DVD-set I decided to take a nostalgic look back at the show. What I found was that, in addition to the expected hilariously unfortunate '90s fashion and the awful acting, the show is also so firmly set in the analog age that it's outdated in many other unexpected ways as well. These were the ones that stood out to me the most when I wasn't, you know, obsessing over how stupid the boys are for not noticing that Melody is still so much hotter than Brad (which took up about 95% of my viewing time).
