Rule number one in my life is “Don’t watch MTv.” However, this has not always been the case. There were a few good things about MTv in the 90’s. Consider the following:
5) Inspired Stache to choose a name starting with T as his confirmation name. Years later, this would provide amusement to many.
4) Was first to air Mike Judge, in the form of Beavis and Butt-Head. Judge went on to network TV with King of the Hill and the classic movie Office Space.
3) Aired Daria, a show that lambasted the very pop culture that MTv was simultaneously responsible for promoting.
2) Jimmy the Cab driver commercials. I recall the one about Aerosmith’s video for Crazy being the funniest, but I can’t find it on YouTube, so you’ll have to settle for Ironic.
1) Aired the State’s sketch comedy show, which ranks in my top 5 shows of all time.
