Not having lived in a college dorm room for for a few years, I find that keeping up with what's going on on Cartoon Network's [adult swim] isn't really that high up on my to-do list any more. This is mostly because I have to be awake before noon, not to mention how the deeper meanings behind the absurdity of a talking ball of meat is lost without a room full of friends who can relate to him all too well. Tuning in a few days ago I was glad to see that most of [adult swim]'s original programing isn't much different, however the channel is really slacking with the syndicated programing choices.
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.
Scrubs is returning to ABC on December 1st for a 9th season, which may leave some wondering "Wasn't that show cancelled years ago?" and others somewhat excited about the impending birth of J.D. and Elliott's spawn. Another Bill Lawrence project that remains forever tucked away in the dusty corners of my memory is Clone High. Clone High was a short-lived cartoon that aired on MTV during the 2002-2003 season. Only 13 episodes exist of what I will dare to call a mini-masterpiece of the animated genre; an opus to the primetime cartoon.
