The New Beavis and Butthead

Well, eventually I had to give my opinion on this series now that I've seen all the new episodes. I must say I am a little bit disappointed. I more expected to see them do some music video critiques again. However, more often than not, they did critiques of reality shows that are aired on MTV. Although I was aware before the new season began that they would be critiquing reality shows, YouTube videos as well as newer music videos, I didn't think it was going to be made up almost entirely of MTV reality show critiques! I've seen few actual music videos, and no YouTube videos, and there wasn't a newer episode of Beavis and Butthead that did not have them watching an MTV reality show. I guess I'm still just used to the old Beavis and Butthead. Though I will say the new episode ideas were very cute. I loved it when they tried to emulate Supersize Me. It was interesting to see Beavis and Butthead as obese teenagers. At least they can say they know what it's like to be fat. hahaha! I know! I know! They're cartoons. But it sure beats these skinny-ass teenagers who say "Go on a diet" when they have no idea whatsoever what it's like being fat. I've said it before and I'll say it again, diets don't work! I know that as well as anyone my size. You may lose weight on a diet, but I can almost guarantee eventually you will gain it all back, and sometimes even more than before. Women especially, and especially women like me who are on hormone medications. My thyroid is fine, the problem actually lies elsewhere.

But anyway, I was not really that pleased with the new Beavis and Butthead. I'd hoped to see just as many music videos as anything else. Actually, the reality shows make the new Beavis and Butthead more confusing. The first time I saw the new episodes merged with some of the reality shows, I almost turned off the TV. I have no interest in any of MTV's reality shows, and I thought perhaps Beavis and Butthead were over. Then when I heard Beavis and Butthead's voices in the background, it dawned on me that this was part of their show! It was kinda confusing. I was used to seeing them critique music videos! But actually very few of these new episodes had any music videos. But there wasn't a single new episode that I know of that didn't have them watch one of these reality shows. And I believe I saw them all!

Well, that's my views of the new Beavis and Butthead season. I kinda wonder if they will be having any more? I'd like to see their promises fulfilled, of them critiquing videos by Justin Beiber and Lady Gaga. I once read somewhere that Justin Beiber is a fan of Beavis and Butthead. I don't know if that's true. Beavis and Butthead have not really been on the air in a while, and the last time I saw them, Justin Beiber would have still been a child, and should not have been watching Beavis and Butthead. I'm glad though that I now have every Beavis and Butthead episode that was worth anything in a DVD collection. I collected them, and put them on disks myself. I have the Mike Judge Collection too, but I almost never watch it. What's the point? They aren't full episodes. I mean, the videos have been cut out. So, I almost never watch that collection. I sure wouldn't watch it over the collection I made myself. And I kept NO episodes that has Beavis playing that Cornpolio character! It kills the movie. I always foreward through those scenes. And the episodes, I just don't have them in my collection. And the one new episode (thankfully) that they had in the new season where Beavis did that again, I just didn't watch that episode! Thank GOD the warning that he was going to do that again was in the title. So, I didn't have to watch it! I don't like any episodes or anything where Beavis portrays that Cornpolio character! They're beyond stupid! And the way he got started! He started that by making fun of Stewart's misfortune. And all he ever says is "I am the great Cornpolio! I need TP for my bunghole!" and he repeats it over and over again! No variety! And I thrive on variety. And you notice on those episodes, they hardly ever show Butthead doing much of anything. Beavis does a lot of stupid shit on that series, but this Cornpolio is totally insipid, even for Beavis!
