VH1 brings back a good show this time: Behind the Music

Lil' WayneNormally you can expect VH1 to be renewing their horrible reality sexcapade competitions and other trashy shows, but suddenly there's a glimmer of hope on what was once an actual escape for the more mature music enthusiast. While it's only for 10 episodes or so for now, I'm still jazzed that VH1 is reviving Behind the Music at all. This was E!'s True Hollywood Story before True Hollywood Story. For me it generally didn't matter who they were spotlighting, all the stories were interesting. Of course, there'll always be a special place in my heart for the Milli Vanilli story. Heartbreak and more heartbreak!

You could call it a response to the success of the New Kids on the Block "Behind the Music" special this past fall. Honestly, I'm not even sure why the series was shelved in 2006. There are always new acts sprouting up and you'd think there would be plenty of fodder with the likes of The Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus and a new batch of American Idol wannabes each year. So far Lil' Wayne and Scott Weiland have signed on. I'm hoping for a Kanye West one narrated and written by West.

I still think they should bring back Pop Up Video - that was a great show!

I'm not all that interested in hearing sugar coated stories about musicians who methed themselves out of the business and are "on the verge of making it big again". But if they are going to start telling the whole story, then I'm for it.

Bring back "Bands Reunited"

I am glad they are bringing something decent back, but I don't plan on watching it since I have mentally blocked anything vhr/mtv related. They still need to bring back Pop-up Videos, that was one of the best and most entertaining shows I can even remember from VH1. I used to watch that even if I didn't like/know who was singing. Hey they could do a pop-up on their skank shows.

About time - this was a pretty decent show. You might find this amusing as well - other TV spin-offs I think they should bring back: http://www.minutemuse.com :-)
