As long as MTV continues to air the I’m From Rolling Stone reality show, we’ll continue to
force encourage Idolator intern Kate Richardson to watch it for us. Her take on last night’s episode after the click-through.
Highlights from Episode 102: “Bi-Polar Express”
-During the first of several heart-to-hearts with RS editor Joe Levy, intern Russell sets up the arc of the episode by asking whether his “general dirtbagedness” will get him into trouble at Rolling Stone. He also casually admits to engaging in “a lot of harassing of women” and watching porn.
-Tika loses her notes after interviewing the Roots, and yet still manages to pull off a published story.
-Russell comes to the jarring realization that “editors are kind of wack, dude,” and uses this as an excuse to flail about the office madly and skip work.
-Editor Alex Mar begins to unravel mid-episode, when Peter’s unprintable Band of Horses article makes her realize that dealing with MTV interns is not worth the extra screen time.
-Krishtine and Krystal are forced to sit on the sidelines, pondering the unorthodox spelling of their names.
-In the end, Russell pledges to get to work on-time everyday, noting that he’ll “pull out [his] balls and flap them around” for ten minutes once he arrives at the office. Look for footage of this soon at MTV Overdrive.
Most annoying intern of the episode: Russell, by default.
Least annoying intern of the episode: Tika, because she seems to know what she’s doing and can achieve it with minimal fuss.
