Despite the fact that it is easily argued MTV shows like the Hills and Bromance are extremely trashy and useless, I have come to notice and learn about some MTV shows that are actually of some legitimate importance. They address important topics and despite the fact that they use celebrity and television in their efforts, they use it quite wisely, what better way to get the attention of todays teens, our future generation, than via popular TV?

I learned about 4Real when I met the creator Sol Guy at a conference here in Calgary in October, and just happened to find the Jessi episodes. If you are interested in humanitarian efforts and issues they are definitely worth checking out.
