16, Pregnant, and Kind of Lame

December 15, 2010 -

An episode recap of the MTV's 16 and Pregnant reality show entitled "There's Nothing Wrong with Video Games" follows the trials and travails of teen parents Megan and Nathan. Nathan seems to be more preoccupied with lip rings and dungeon dwelling than being a father, while Megan hasn't grown up enough to give up rainbows and ponies.. There is also a lot of talk about a lack of tough love, but who cares? Let's get to the video game references:

"Megan tried to see Nathan as a reformed daddy-to-be, whose partying days were now replaced by hours and hours of perfecting the art of laziness in Megan's basement dungeon. When he wasn't getting a fierce tan from the glow of the TV screen, or working up a fierce digital work out, Nathan would have the occasional incomprehensible conversation with friend Tyler about how cool it is that they both have two lip rings. (My children will never play video games.)"

I don't think the author can blame video games for lip rings and the last time I checked, they can't get you pregnant either. Some more from the recap:

"When it was time to step up and support his family after Megan went back to school, Nathan took a job with a dependable income but in an undesirable location. Moving to Texas for work seems like a big decision, yet also one that allows him the "freedom" he complains he never got while sitting alone in the basement all day. Are you proud of him for actually getting a job, or do you fear he'll get distracted living so far away from Megan and the baby, and will fall back into his routine of playing video games all day?"

Read the whole thing at Entertainment Weekly's TV Recap. At least Megan isn't beating Nathan up in every episode, unlike some other previous "star" in this MTV series. Also, these kids should have played Privates..

Remember when MTV used to be all about Music? I thought that was what the "M" stood for. It used to be nothing but music videos and interviews with musicians. I miss the 80's...

Re: 16, Pregnant, and Kind of Lame

Yeah, long since went from "Music"TV to "Me"TV.  As in "All About Me"TV.  Including things we never really wanted to know about or care about "Me".

Re: 16, Pregnant, and Kind of Lame

Not that I've seen the show in question, but from the description it sounds like the M should stand for 'Moronic.'

Re: 16, Pregnant, and Kind of Lame

 In all honesty, I have no interest in the opinions of people who watch MTV- let alone those who make a living watching and analyzing these episodes.  Nothing to fret over here.  

Re: 16, Pregnant, and Kind of Lame

I'd rather commit suicide then be tied up to a chair to watch any of this reality exploitated bull that's been shoved down our throats like wildfire. F!!! MTV! & F!!! 16 & Pregnant!

Re: 16, Pregnant, and Kind of Lame

 I think I'm going to repress any knowledge of this show existing. My fragile sanity cannot take the horribleness. 

Re: 16, Pregnant, and Kind of Lame

that show just glorifies teen-pregnancy.

how? you get pregnant, you might just win a chance to get on TV

Re: 16, Pregnant, and Kind of Lame

 I see where you are coming from, but I disagree.  The show does portray having a kid at that age as being incredibly difficult.  While yes, these kids now have a better chance of getting further TV/entertainment deals- the show hardly makes their lives look glamorous.  

Re: 16, Pregnant, and Kind of Lame

Can...not...stand...that...show...so...much...BLEEP!!!

The only reason I've seen this show is due to a sister that likes it. It goes from sad to stupid to just wanting to slap each and every one of them in the back of the head. Usually that is in the first 5 minute, then I leave and go find something else to do.

MaskedPixelanteDude was at the center of a pretty serious plagiarism scandal back in 2011, and it was widely known he ripped off other musical pieces well before that.12/27/2014 - 9:33am
Kajex@Masked Right, because his work actually composing music for several Metroid games necessitated plagiarism.12/27/2014 - 9:04am
MaskedPixelanteI can't believe Kenji Yamamoto got another job. Then again, his job on Smash was "musical arrangment", so copying other people's work is right up his alley.12/26/2014 - 9:31pm
