Perhaps you heard: The Hills are back, and even the New York Times seems to be excited! Says the Gray Lady: "The theme of ambition permeates the new season, although it detracts not at all from the show's canny sense that there's no such thing as postadolescence: you're a teenager until you start having biopsies and paying a mortgage." (The paper also - jokingly - calls Heidi Montag a "feminist hero".) You know what NYT? We love trashy television too, but there is no need to attempt to intellectualize something aimed at 16-year-olds. Just beach out in front of the television with a bottle of wine like the rest of us. (Speaking of, we'll be live-blogging the show tonight at 10pm Eastern.) [New York Times]
