Fan Culture Exploration - MTV's True Life: "I'm a Fanboy"


True Life, MTV Shows

In my ongoing research on fantastic fan cultures I came across this episode of MTV's True Life that focuses on the phenomenon titled "I'm a Fanboy." Although the program seems to include and reinforce some stereotypes of "fanboys," no doubt basted upon MTV's selection process in fan submissions rather than from a scientific cross-section of those in fandom, it does provide an interesting glimpse into individuals involved in these subcultures. This episode and others form the series can be found here.
