Normally, I’m pretty opposed to networks just up and reviving shows that they cancelled a decade (or more) ago because they just plain ran out of ideas. See: X-Files, Coach, and, of course, Fuller House.
However, there are some shows that were so brilliant in their concept and were ripped from the airwaves way too soon that the world wants — nay, DEMANDS that they come back. Arrested Development, Community, and Futurama are brilliant examples, and now, joining their ranks, in this corner, weighing in at 75 episodes of claymation glory — Celebrity Deathmatch.
That’s right, your favorite series featuring clay renderings of celebrities beating the ever-living shit out of each other is being revived by MTV2, eight years after, well, its last revival from 2006 to 2007. The ORIGINAL series, which aired on MTV proper, ran from 1998-2002 before being cancelled.
Should you be excited? I mean, try watching this bout between Kid Rock and Eminem WITHOUT pissing your pants laughing.
Think of all the brawls this new version could bring. Just imagine:
Justin Bieber vs. Orlando Bloom
Solange Knowles vs. Jay-Z
Iggy Azalea vs. Azalea Banks vs. Snoop Dogg
Taylor Swift vs. Katy Perry
Taylor Swift vs. John Mayer
Taylor Swift vs. One Direction
Taylor Swift vs. … You get the picture, right?
Common Decency vs. Roger Goodell
The possibilities are endless. I mean, unless you like new ideas on television. If you do like original programming, MTV2 also picked up a show called Kingin’ With Tyga, a six-episode series that follows around the guy that rhymed “Rack City, Bitch” with “Rack Rack City, Bitch.” You watch that, I’ll watch a clay Ludacris beat the shit out of clay versions of the comedians that made Paul Walker jokes at the “Justin Bieber Roast.” .
