After the surprising death of DJ AM (Adam Goldstein), no one was sure what would happen to Gone Too Far, his MTV documentary about addiction. Would it be wrong to air it, since it was discovered that he was abusing drugs? Or is it a cautionary tale that could encourage others to seek treatment? Your feelings were mixed, although a small majority of you thought the network should continue on with the program. After receiving the blessing of his family, MTV finally premieres the eight-episode series tonight.
The show follows AM as he stages interventions with friends and relatives of young twenty-somethings using heroin and other drugs. It's a tough topic to cover — especially given the surrounding circumstances — but judging by the trailer, it looks like MTV handles it with the appropriate respect. The footage actually gave me a few goosebumps — it's eerie to see Goldstein helping others overcome the problems that led to his own demise.
Will you watch? It airs at 10 p.m. ET/PT, but until then check out the video for the trailer when you read more.
