How can "Beavis and Butt-Head" represent contemporary white youth taking our frustration out on the world? Surely we could say the same thing about Eastenders with older people?! Looking for escapism from their boring and uneventful lives? (sorry if anyone does watch Eastenders).
That was exactly my sentiment, I'll scan the first 2 pages of this in properly tomorrow. You can't compare the whole of contemporary white youth to Beavis and Butt-head of all the things to compare us too! A made up exaggerated pair of teenagers, really annoyed me I completely disagree with all of it. Like you say you can do that with every program and compare it to any age group. What a load of tosh!
