Riese’s Team Pick: MTV’s Undressed

Hi! Did you suffer from insomnia/sexual deprivation/adolescence in the mid-90s? Perhaps you stayed up all night watching Undressed marathons on MTV as well, even though it was a terrible show, like I did! Sometimes even queer stuff happened and Emmet Honeycutt showed up. Anyhow for some reason possibly related to the show being awful, it’s not out on DVD yet.

Anyhow IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN, you’ll be happy to find out, perhaps a few years late as I did, that you can at least watch Season One of Undressed now on the internet at Undressed TV and that they’ll allegedly be uploading further seasons at some point. So. Watch that spot.

  1. I was definitely a sexually deprived adolescent insomniac in the 90s. I would watch marathons of Undressed in the middle of the night with the sound low to make sure my parents didn’t hear it
