    There is--beneath the stale crust of the new Beavis and Butt-head, baked in with the program's existential outlook--a special grimness.

    Ah. Beavis and Butthead. I am a bit late on this review, I will admit. But, I digress.
    This reboot is actually much better than the original.

    For an example: The old show, was mostly just their stupidity, and did little to
    satirize the culture of the 90's. It did, just not as much. The comedy mostly stemmed from
    the duo. However, in the reboot the comedy is for me at least, stupidity of todays culture.
    They poke fun at the reality shows, and the musical conventions. Ultimately they make fun of everything wrong found today. I particularly like how they parodied Twilight. the episode starts with B and B at a movie cinema as the characters on screen deliver really bad lines. They tease it, but eventually decide to follow its conventions to get chicks. So, they attempt to become vampires or werewolfs. ("Well, this isn't very good." Butt-head on Edwards quotes.) Its a mixture of stupidity, but also witty lines that make it interesting. It kind of makes me question if writers from the spin off 'Daria' are involved. Don't get me wrong, the duo is still hilariously stupid, its just, now they
    seem to have a layer of cleverness in there perspective which makes it much more interesting.
    If you're like me and you don't agree with todays stupid, you'll like this show.
    If you worship snooki, you wont.
