A lot has changed since MTV's "the Real World" debuted as what is arguably the first reality show on TV. To give you an idea of just how much has changed since the first episode debuted 21 years ago, here's what was happening in 1992: Wayne's World hit theaters, MTV still played music videos, people were wearing acid wash, gas was averaging $1.10, and Bill Clinton was elected President.

Entering it's 29th season, which Variety shares may be its last, the show where "people stop being polite and start getting real," is returning to the site of its third season -- San Francisco.

If you were are old enough to watch the 1994 season freely, or like this writer -- had to sneak peeks after school before Mom got home, you'll remember the cast lived in a house on Lombard Street, documented Pedro Zamro's battled with HIV, and that Puck was evicted.

As of yet, we're not sure where the cast will live or what "job" they'll have. We'll update you when we learn more.

Here's the first episode of the 1994 "the Real World: San Francisco" season:

...didn't Puck just get manslaughter and sentenced to 1000 hours com service for hitting an older man with his bike and killing him? =P Honestly not a dig, but I swear I thought Real World was canceled Agee years ago...

Ugh... but... they should bring back Puck since he's a local, and made the damn show for them...

The show is not about people anymore, it's about getting laid.

You might as well replace the articles photo with a bunch of buff neurotic people that have drinking problems.

It's definitely not a good sign when the new real world casts select your city. MTV is garbage.

I suspect it's too much to hope that the show will also return to its original casting roots and feature interesting young adults who are doing interesting and productive things. God I fucking hate the worthless, parasitic, mentally-deficient douchetards who are on the show now.
