I don’t have a long thought out piece on why The Hills was so important to me, or how I’m so sad it ended, because I think I’ve covered The Hills enough in my 3 years at TVgasm. The show went from being my obsession to being dead to me, but because the show was such a staple on my DVR for the past 4 years, I owed it to myself to watch it to the bitter end.
I loved The Hills during the LC days, as most did, but when Kristin came on the scene it became JUST another dumb show. All the B-characters had A-story lines, and Heidi, and Spencer became monsters–hence, why I hated the show…anyway, no use crying over the show ending, because it was about time they ended the series. However, I do want to touch up on the last scene of the finale–the movie set after the Brody/Kristin good-bye. Was that their little joke that they drummed up for us little viewers? I could see them thinking of it in the story room, and then telling the actors–then, they all laugh, and say, “wow, hahahhahaha…that’s amazing, we’ll show them–real or fake, I guess we’ll only know.” I HATED that they did that, it was dumb.
Here’s the thing about that show–they wish it was ALL fake because they’d be deemed as good actors, and while the show was heavily beated with beginning, middle, and ends, the characters were just playing a version of themselves…so yes, it was fake, but they were still themselves. And, NO they didn’t film the dumb show on a movie lot…we all know that…MTV: we’re not idiots, so don’t give us the middle finger.
The only part of the finale that I enjoyed was the Finale Aftershow party. I know we didn’t get any extra information from anyone on that couch, but it was nice to see Lauren come out on the end. The Finale party took away my intense hate for the past two seasons for that one hour, and let me enjoy what I used to love.
Anyway, the Final episode was ehhh, but I will never forget that whole series–I was a die-hard fan from Laguna Beach to the bitter end. Thank you, Hills.
