***SO FAR I'VE BEEN WATCHING THIS... AND IT'S BEEN !!ING AWESOME! MUST WATCH IF YOU'RE A RETRO TV JUNKIE! I’m glad someone remembers that MTV used to stand for music and that it’s getting old. Too bad that MTV doesn’t remember that their main purpose was to play music or acknowledge or celebrate their history. But for those that do, this is your weekend and enjoy! SPREAD THE WORD!***
