  • As it stood it was funny but what it led to causes me to ding it 3 points from 8.4 to 5.4

    The bad thing about Remote Control is that it was the beginning of the end for MTV as we knew it. Once upon a time MTV was the coolest thing - nothing but music videos 24/7. Then came Remote Control - it was still 95% videos but the flood gates had creaked open ready to unleash a torrent of crap the likes of which the world had never seen before! Once Real World reared its head, the old MTV was on its way to becoming a pants load.

    What do you see today? Junk. Music videos are scarcer than hens teeth unless you are up at 3am on 24 hour missile watch at NORAD. I mean you got everything on MTV during normal viewing hours except videos! VH-1 went down pretty much the same route loads of socalled "Reality TV"... they should just change the names of the 2 networks to RTV and RH-1. Get rid of the M and the V because they arent about Music and Videos any more.
