little kid does the hillsAs MTV's The Hills comes to a close, we must ask ourselves, Why this show? What was it about this show that took such a stranglehold of the cultural zeitgeist? A heavily-staged, overly stylized reality show essentially plotted around nothing but brunches and hookups was a THING? It was. It was a thing and it captured even the least tolerant of us.

The series finale is approaching and the only thing that would keep us wanting more is if, I dunno, the cast was replaced by babies? Because that would be the best.

Oh, look! Funny web video!
