    This is one of the few reality shows I watch. I've watched and enjoyed it for years. It's not as good as it once was. It's now usually pretty goofy, but in the past it gave some good insight into issues people deal with and could be informative and entertaining.

    I'm watching this episode on people wanting their kind to be respected. Who'd have thought Juggalos could be on a show and not be the biggest assholes? The vampires are retarded. If you're bored, watch this and get a load of them. "Logan" getting all angered over someone biting someone else without permission is hilarious. This would be bad enough if these were teenage dipshits. These are fucking adults claiming to be real vampires. Christ.

    Can't embed, but here's the link at MTV:

    Been a long time since I've watched anything on cable. I watch it all online and commercials there don't seem as bad as I remember from cable. It got ridiculous with cable. I'd forget what the hell I was even watching before the commercial breaks were over. They'd go on so long, I'd get bored and start looking through the guide and usual find something else to tune into.

    True Life might be the only show I could watch on MTV without a problem. I haven't watched it in a while, but I liked how it seemed to unbiased toward the subject matter.

    Yeah, I recall that. Can't remember the episode. I'm going to need to go back and watch some old ones. There are bunch of good ones.

    The guys addicted to porn. I love the one who excuses the camera to pound one out and then is all ashamed.

    The chicks who couldn't physically have sex

    The guy who got plastic surgery to add calf muscles

    There are so many more that I've just forgotten about. Definitely need a refresh.

    I remember the fake calf implants. :facepalm:

    This was one of the douchiest people in the history of True Life second to the Italian kid who went to wrestling school, but missed half his classes because he was hung over, or doing heroin.

    Started in the late 90's. Late evening programming you shouldn't have missed. Along with the show Undressed, full of college hot girl actresses whose careers mostly ended up nowhere.

    Undressed was a good show. I also liked real world back in the day and some of the challenge shows. Haven't really kept with their programming. I did watch a few episodes of that Catfish show and it was OK but I cant believe how gullible people are.

    Yeah, I also watched a lot of Real World back in the day. I think the last season I saw was one with a tranny. I also watched the season with that dude who died recently. Can't remember how long ago that season was. I actually went back and watched the first few seasons. I hadn't seen them since they first aired. Really was a unique show at the time. You had that and Cops as far as reality TV. Now reality TV is nowhere near that real.

    I also watched a few Catfish and it was almost interesting. After a few, it just gets old as it's basically always the same thing. Or worse, they are who they say they are and the two hit it off. That's no fun.

    The best part about True Life is that they usually featured two different stories and if one of the people was a blaek, you could fast forward through those parts and be done watching in 20 minutes.

    I remember the guy with the calf implants. He went to the beach and he was pointing out his calf "muscles" to girls thinking they would be attracted to him because of them. From what I remember, they laughed at him and were dumbfounded by him.

    The Austin vampires were fucking ridiculous. My wife friended them on Facebook so we could troll them after we saw that show.

    The "I'm addicted to porn" episode was pretty intense.

    That one was awesome! That dude walking around with his fake gold grill and smiling at girls with it was hilarious!

    The saddest part of that ep IMHO was that profile they did on porn star Jayden James. She won Best Newcomer at the AVNs and was disappointed that her parents weren't :quote: proud :quote: of her. Her poor dad was :facepalm:, and her sister (who had a regular job and was once pretty hot) couldn't get through to her either.
