Thank You Faking It – A Eulogy for an MTV Show

Life as a TV show addict is tough. You have to deal with many losses. The loss of a beloved character (Grey’s Anatomy and Game of Thrones fans know what I’m talking about) or the loss of the original greatness of a show. Or – the worst of all – the loss of a whole TV show. It happens to the best of them which is why I still can’t believe that they cancelled the only MTV show I ever truly cared about.

#TGIT Is Back!

This is of course a problem in the years 2016 where diversity in media is more important than ever.
