It's that time of year again. Another set of eyerolls, meaningful stares, and semi-contrived situations. Another heap of friend breakups, nightclub-hopping, and drama. Another season of The Hills on MTV.
As always, the trailer for the show makes things look pretty darn exciting (even though so often nothing ever really happens); we're promised jail time, Whitney in NYC, and more struggles between Lauren and Audrina. This time around, I've been pretty fascinated with the media reaction to the show: Entertainment Weekly gave Lauren Conrad the cover for a story about how different her life is from what we see on TV; Time said the whole show is staggeringly beautiful; and some other critics have admitted utter bafflement about the show's popularity.
So, let's talk about The Hills. Will you be watching tonight? Are you hooked on the show, and, if so, why? If you avoid it, what turns you off about it? To watch the preview and add your thoughts in the comments, just read more.
