All feels right with the world again. It's been 14 years since the last episode of the series' original run and it doesn't feel like they missed a beat at all. It feels like they cut & paste the original series and placed it in a modern context, with "Werewolves" touching on the Twilight craze. And "Crying" feels like an episode that would have fit like a glove as an episode of the original series. This series still works and I'm so happy to have it back.

After watching that first episode, I would honestly be surprised if someone didn't put two and two together at some point and determine that Beavis & Butt-Head are superhuman. I mean, look at all that they've been able to survive!

And while the interludes did feature looks at The Jersey Shore, there were also interludes that featured music videos, complete with old-school stock footage and new HD footage! So yeah...that means this is the closest that we'll get to see actual music videos on MTV again.

..and MTV Canada will air the episodes, too!!! Man, I am stoked!

Question: have there been any changes, graphically or otherwise? When I see this tomorrow night, will it be just like watching it when I was a teen?

The episodes themselves (and pieces of the interludes) are polished for HD. Other than that, this is B&B the way you remember them.

I can literally feel brain cells die when I watch this show, just like I remember growing up. It's a fantastic feeling. the "Grandma, how'd you get spyhillis?" line when making fun of Jersey Shore had me rolling.

This is a very welcome addition to my DVR schedule and will stay saved for a long time. Thursday is a really booked day of TV for me.

Just like that, 14+ years without Beavis and Butt-Head were erased. It's like they were never gone.

That wasn't even the funniest line of that segment. That honor belongs to Butt-Head: “I don’t see why he needs to get a job. He’s got a car and a place to live and he’s fat.”

On a night with a great Community Halloween episode and a great Parks and Rec Halloween episode (also, The Office was on), Beavis and Butt-Head RULED.

This was the first time I watched MTV in like ten years... and I'm not ashamed to say I quite enjoyed the return of the show. It was stupid, yes, but it was funny.

I would watch Jersey Shore all the time if every show consisted of B&B making fun of it.

It's also good to know that Stewart still loves the Winger.

Beavis and Butt-Head net 3.3. million viewers in debut. (insidetv.ew.com)

That's not bad, all things considered. Essentially, you had one generation of fans in their 30s who haven't looked at MTV in a decade and were being asked to find MTV again, and then a second generation of teenagers who were anywhere between the ages of 0 and 5 when Beavis left the air back in 1997. Plus it was up against a World Series game everyone is raving about. Nor did the show disappoint creatively; this was the same show the original generation loved in the 90s, just making fun of pop culture today. This being MTV, Beavis will be heavily repeated as well. There'll be a lot more eyeballs on Beavis and Butt-Head over the next several days and going forward.

Welcome home, men of the 2nd Bn, 127th Infantry, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, WI Army National Guard! Job well done in Iraq!

I'll keep watching, but...that just wasn't as good as I remembered. Beavis actually seemed a little more well-versed than he should.

Still, good to have the boys back.

I can't believe how much like the original series this was. I am so stoked and I pray to goodness we get another 100 episodes.

On the whole I enjoyed it. I am in the 30 demo that John talked about, as I hadn't watched anything on MTV for years, but I had to find it to DVR it. I thought the Werewolf ep was really awesome, with Jersey Shore and the MGMT video.

I did not enjoy Crying all that much. I admit it was similar to other episodes from the days of yore, and perhaps I have just grown out of it. I do want a bit more from these new episodes than such a one-note story like Crying. I agree with Thrill that Beavis was more intelligent, but I like that aspect because it is the voice and manner of speaking that has made me enjoy the character.

Bring on a Cornholio episode!

In 1993 David Letterman famously said that he dug Beavis & butt-head, because they exemplified the lowest level of human intellect. Almost 20 years later and B&B have identified something even dumber than they are-- MTV's reality shows.

The geriatric scene in "Crying" made me remember an old 1993/1994 episode, where the guys said the highlight of their lives was: "we got to see naked people!"

Oh, and I had never seen that MGMT video. Creepy stuff. Liked the connection with the kid's shorts and shoes. That's the sort of random and unexpected riffing that makes me love Beavis & Butt-head.

Correct me if I'm wrong but Will was his first guest on Late Night & Tonight Show (and last guest ever on Tonight), right? Wonder if he was unable to appear- you think he would've been asked...although he could be one of the surprises.
