Thoughts on The Hard Times of RJ Berger

Why did MTV have a movies award show in June? My guess is MTV has a contract of how many swears it can beep. The contract was almost up, so they put on an award show so they can use up the beeps in the contract. Sadly since I haven't seen Twilight, I felt left out. Most of the awards went to Twilight (big shock). Well after the MTV Movie Awards came a new show to MTV called The Hard Times of RJ Berger... then 6 repeats of the MTV Movie Awards.

The Hard Times of RJ Berger is about Michael Cera... I mean the guy that was Kick Ass, uh wait no, I mean the kid from Zombieland. Is that right? Both had the same haircut, both have crush on girl, both are awkward characters, both are involved in a zombie apocalypse... wait that's not right. Ah so they aren't the same! Also there is another difference (that we know of) between the two, RJ Berger has a big D***! Which is revealed to everyone in the school after some jock pulls down his pants. I never understood why people would do this. "Hey Brian watch this *pulls kids pants down* HAHA." "Man Tony! That is totally not gay! Which you show by dating the hot girl in school!"

My first impression from the promos was this was going to fail. Which it might... can you name any non reality program on MTV? Andy Milonakis, Beavis and Butthead, and Wonder Showzen you say? Alright name one that came out in the past 5 years that reached to a second season... Human Giant! Ok wow, you got me, but come on that has Aziz Ansari and that's basically cheating!

Final Say:
I made it through the episode, and I'm surprised to say that I will be coming back to check out the next episode. Sure it's not the best show out there, but if you like the awkward characters Michael Cera plays in his movies, then you should enjoy The Hard Times of RJ Berger.

Watch it here.
