Puck was all "Pedro, Pedro, Pedro, how about look at me you overly sensitive twats."

Then, Pedro dies.

The show's continued crassness rhymes perfectly with MTV's shift, through the years, away from a dorky sort of music fandom (Peter Gabriel has 13 Video Music Awards) and Kurt Loder-y gravity and toward the Jersey Shore.

OMG!! A network called MUSIC Television actually played music, had music fans, and "music fandom"!!!! Seriously, what an absolutely stupid statement, and I haven't even really ever LIKED Peter Gabriel all that much.

As for Thje Real World, THIS is really what we have to thank for all of the reality bullshiat saturating the networks today. Sure, there was the show in the 70's, but TRW turned it "sexy", and I will never forgive them for this shiat, every time a new Duck Dynasty, a Real Housewives or a Deadliest Catch comes out, it's just another spot something worth watching could be playing. And fark MTv for becoming unwatchable. You went from something that everyone would play in the background at parties to a network nobody wants to turn on anymore.

Ruthie is where the producers saw they could go off the rails and was the beginning of the end - Chicago is the first season I didn't watch and haven't watched since

Still waiting for "Slow Burn," starring not-Jon Brennan, to make it into theaters.

And where has Snoopy-loving, miniature human Miami Joe been? I like to think he crawled into his Amazonian girlfriend Nic's vagina to take a nap one day and, like Rip Van Winkle, fell asleep for 100 years.

/can't believe I remember this shiat after 20 years, but I can't even remember my kids' names.

Remember that time on Real World Seattle with David went over to that gay guy's condo, but David didn't know that he was gay, and the gay guy had all those little tube tv sets tuned to all the news stations?

Yeah, that was pretty sweet.

That's about as far as I made it.
Did Chicago have some girl cheating on a guy named Vaj or something?  It's all kinda hazy now.

The dark haired chick from Alabama in the first one.

That is all.

That tiny chick with the curly hair from Seattle.

That is all.

Yeah thats when I lost it too. We used to watch it at work and snark about it. Ruthie looked like Tiger Woods sister it was weird.

I saw the first four and stopped watching after Hawaii I think. Those Real World's were the best.

Damn I feel old.

I met Puck at a blackjack table in Circus Circus in Las Vegas in about 1995. Let's just say that his on screen persona is genuine.

Season 1 (New York): This looks like it might be interesting.
Season 2 (Los Angeles): This is the same show? What a bunch of drama queens.
Season 3 (San Francisco): Okay, I can deal with these people better.  Well, everyone but Puck.
Season 4 (London): This is the same show? They all get along so well. I want to be friends with these people.
Season 5 (Miami): biatchy, shrill attention whores?  No, thanks.  Maybe next season will be better.
Season 6 (Boston): These people seem mostly all right.  A bit out there, but all right.
Season 7 (Seattle): Meh.  I'll keep it on in the background in case anything interesting happens.
Season 8 (Hawaii): WTF is going on.  Nevermind...I give up.  I'm done.

Everything after that doesn't even exist in the world I know.  I have mad respect for Irene for calling the show out for the staged, manipulated bullshiat it was though.  It would have been even more wonderful if she had a bit more courage at the time to do it, but I understand how tough it probably was for her.
