  • As a die-hard Laguna fan of course I'm going to love The Hills!

    Wow, what a difference to Laguna. I always thought Lauren a different person on Laguna simply for the fact that she wasn't excatly the main character. The Hills is a perfect way to get to know her and little better and to better understand her life.

    First off, good for Lauren for not becoming some totally spoiled rich kid and not going out and working! Good for her for going for that internship and for getting it. She better buckle down though and work because her boss scares the hell out of me! Whitney's a sweet girl and I look forward to seeing more of her! I didn't quite understand the whole fashion change thing, "There, that's more Teen Vogue." What the heck does that mean?!

    Heidi.. dear Heidi. I don't understand why exactly you would ever crash a party that your friend's job is leaning on, it seemed like such a mean thing to do! I would certainly never to that to someone that I know!

    I love it, I love this show already! I cannot wait for the season to continue.moreless
  • this is when Lauren leaves Laguna and gos to Los Angeles to start her new life going to fashion school and working for teen vogue.

    this was a great start for Lauren. this was better then expected for a drama and reality show.this shows that if you live your home dose not mean things are going to go bad. that there are always new expires to learn and live. there are so many other people to meet and that that life that you left will always be there for when you what to go throw memory line. there will always be drama where ever you go. it will always be like if you where back in high school with all the same problems and just different people.moreless

    I love this show! Lauren Conrad is by far my very favorite character. I just love her; I think she is so pretty and I really admire her. I really like Whitney too. She's pretty too. And Audrina! Wow she's so pretty and I admire her so much! MTV was smart in choosing this to be Lauren Conrad's show where she moves to LA. I absolutely loved her in Laguna Beach and couldn't wait to see her on her own. It has been an exciting experience for her. She has met many cool people that she likes and so do I.moreless
  • The first episode of a great show.

    This episode follows the journey of Lauren Conrad after leaving her life and family behind in Laguna Beach and heading to the city of angels, LA to start a new life.

    In this first episode we meet Heidi who Lauren shares an appartment with and watch as Lauren tries to land her dream job... working at Teen Vogue in LA.

    Of course, Lauren gets the job and is extremely happy, which is when we meet Whitney, Lauren's co-worker.

    Overall, this is a good pilot episode to a great series and really gets you in the mood to watch the rest of the show!moreless
  • LC gets her intern at Teen Vogue and moves into an apartment with her friend Heidi. LC gets to cover a specific area at a party she has to go to for her job, and Heidi brings her firends to the party unexpectedly and puts the pressure on LC to get them inmoreless

    LC needs to get a new roomate!! How dare Heidi just show up at the party for teen vogue unannouced and put the pressure on LC to get her AND her friends in. Also for Heidi to have an big argument with her boyfriend at the party and sit in the chairs thats her and ger friends were specifically told not to sit down on. It is not also her fault, LC could have did more to prevent them form sitting, and she should not have told the girl at front to get Heidi in. She needs to have more balls when it comes to standing up for her job. Overall the show was good, and it keeps me wondering how much drama and trouble is Heidi going to get LC into, I mean she has already showed her true thoughts about school. Im just waiting for the drama to unravel.moreless
