Okay so I pre-judged this show and always felt a sense of pride that I never had watched it. Recently out of curiousity and almost as a joke, I turned the first episode on and after that my boyfriend (who doesn't care for reality shows) and I were hooked. We have finally finished all the episodes. I have watched a lot of reality shows in my day and I gotta say this one isn't bad. There is definitely a lot of drinking, brawling, drama, and goofy antics. You will have moments of rolling your eyes and then moments of wanting to hurry up and find out what's gonna happen next. Give it a try. It's good for a lazy day or when you are working on stuff and can't fully concentrate on the tv. For the record...Pauly D and Vinnie are hilarious!!! They should be the ones with a spin off (not JWoww and Snookie).
