#RetroMTV? So much fun! Until it made us #FeelOld

It's really not terribly hard to make anybody feel old. Even an eighth-grader would get a little wistful if you reminded her it's been half her lifetime since Jordin Sparks won "American Idol". (ermahgerd!!)

So as fantastic -- in theory -- as MTV's decision was to re-air old (ahem, "retro") "Real World" seasons this weekend along with the hastag #RetroMTV, it did a lot more than stoke the usual embers of nostalgia. It reminded us how awesome the show once was, how far it's fallen and just how weirdly long it's been since Pedro and Puck were appointment TV. Also: that Contempo Casuals once ruled the earth.
