    Default Did anyone ever watch "Clone High" on MTV?

    Ok, Clone High is seriously one of the most underrated TV shows ever made.

    It only aired about 6 episodes on MTV before getting canceled because MTV's brain dead audience didn't get it, but it's seriously brilliant.

    The premise is that the US government made clones of numerous famous historical figures and put the teenage clones in high school together. Abe Lincoln is the every-man protagonist; Gandhi is his ADD-ridden spazzed-out best friend; Joan of Arc is the depressed goth chick in love with Abe; Cleopatra is the obnoxious overbearing popular cheerleader, and JFK is the asshole jock.

    It's pretty terrific, and it's all on youtube if you anyone's interested in checking it out for free.

    It's a shame the humor went right over the heads of most of the audience...a couple of memorable quotes:

    "You know, I've been thinking lately, about like, life and stuff...you really gotta the seize the day! There's no, like, fountain of youth to keep you living forever or anything!"
    --Ponce de Leon

    "Will you go to the prom with Nostradamus?"
    "No!"
    "I KNEW you'd say that!"

    "People liked the real JFK because he was a strong leader!"
    "I thought he was a macho, womanizing stud who conquered the moon!"
    --JFK's foster father/JFK

    "I watched the first two thirds of the MC Hammer: Behind the Music, and if there's one thing I've learned about money, it's that it NEVER RUNS OUT!"
    --Principal Scudworth, the bat-shit crazy weirdo assigned to monitor the clones during high school for later use in a super secret government clone army conspiracy. (Though he has a "secret" plan to steal the clones and place them in an amusement park called "Cloney Island.")

    "Heeeey, keep it down in there! Some of us are trying to nail Catharine the Great here! Or should I say...Catharine the so-so..."
    -JFK

    And the restaurant where the kids hang out after school is called The Grassy Knoll...just all kinds of awesome little subtleties.

    I'm 99% sure no one will have seen this/care enough to respond, but...

    Abe Lincoln - INFP
    Gandhi - ESFP
    Joan of Arc - INFJ
    Cleopatra - ESTJ
    JFK - ESTP
    Principal Scudworth - ENTJ
    Mr. Butlertron - INFP?

    Man, I wish more people knew about/appreciated this show.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    This show was awesome. My friend and I used to go back and forth cracking each other up saying "Say whaaaaaaaaat?!" like Ghandi. It figures - MTV cancels a great show like this and now the network is filled with unwatchable crap "reality" shows.

    I remember it. It was awesome. I couldn't believe it wasn't a huge success.

    Yeah, I watched that show. I thought the concept was funny.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Way way back in the 1980's
    Secret government employees
    Dug up famous guys and ladies
    And made amuzing genetic copies
    Now their clones are sexy teens
    Now they're going to make it if they tried
    Loving, learning, sharing, judging
    Time to laugh, and shiver and cry

    Time to watch,
    Clone High
    Energetic and engaging
    Clone High
    Our Angst is Entertaining
    Clone High
    Our Lives are Never Boring
    Who am I?

    Great show

    It can't be true...


    But then again, it rhymed. So it must be.
