Dave!In all honesty, I don't know what commentary I could possibly offer that could add to the brilliance of the season premiere of Beavis and Butt-Head tonight.

Any concerns that Mike Judge might have lost his edge in the fourteen years that the show has been off the air were washed away almost immediately. The savage, near-brutal wit that made two such stupid characters transcend to genius is as sharp as ever. Sharper even.

And I knew it would before the show even aired because of the preview footage released by MTV. Watching Beavis and Butt-Head tear into the shame of the nation, Jersey Shore, was near glee-inducing. It was so good that I didn't even mind that the secondary "story" component was kind of weak...

Beavis and Butt-Head

I still feel that South Park is the more critical voice when it comes to smart commentary on pop culture and current events, but I'm happy to say that there's definitely room for what Beavis and Butt-Head are serving up.

Here's hoping the 23 remaining episodes prove as entertaining.

Which may be difficult now that MTV no longer airs music videos for Beavis and Butt-Head to comment on. Fortunately, there's enough other stupid crap on television to fill the void.

    B&B is like the grand-daddy of them all and I agree that South Park has gone above and beyond there is a direct evolutionary line between the two that can’t be denied. South Park stands alone but owes a debt to the boys.

    Had to work so I missed it but I’ll catch up sooner or later. Glad it was good. I was hoping it would be.

    It was awesome – and you’re right – the second half wasn’t quite as good. Wonder if they’re gonna tackle Glee?!!

  3. Karl says:

    I have it recorded on my DVR. Gonna watch it later. Glad to hear that they still hold up after all these years.

  4. kapgar says:

    I can’t believe I missed it!! AHHHHHH!!!!

    Must find a replay!!

  5. Avitable says:

    I recorded it and have yet to watch it, but the clips I saw tickled me.

  6. the muskrat says:

    They’re back? Awesome! Now to figure out if we have MTV.

  7. martymankins says:

    I have it queued up and ready to watch. Can’t wait. The last two interviews with Mike Judge that I heard (Howard Stern and Adam Carolla) were so good that in addition to my love of Beavis and Butt-head, Mike’s story telling was brilliant on it’s own.
