    Overall, I don't have too many complaints. But if you're a fan of the fantasy "Real World" houses, I should warn that you'll be disappointed. The aesthetic highlight here is blue Astroturf.

    As stupid as it looks, and as much as you can hate yourself for watching, it's a complex show about the nature of sin. There's a tendency to examine it too cerebrally in that regard, to think of Jersey Shore as pure performance art. Sometimes critics can be wrong in typing too many words.

    Season 2 of MTV's instant trash classic moves the Situation, Snooki and Co. down to Miami Beach for a little change of scenery and no apparent change in attitude. Actually, the scenery hasn't really changed, either.

    Season 2 is more of less than we've come to expect.

    The show still has the moments of off-the-cuff comedy and guilelessness that made the first season fun to watch, if not exactly a parade of role models.

    From pariahs to parodies. What a quick ride. The party is almost over for Jersey Shore.

    Jersey Shore is appalling, which is mostly its appeal, but it can also be funny, irreverent and breezily dimwitted--which is the rest of the appeal.

    Seriously people. If you had to choose a season to watch, this is it. It has all the drama, all the drinks, all the Snooki you need to enjoy some good ol'fashion Guido time! Expand

    Why is being messed up, clueless, ignorant and mouthy good entertainment? They are apparently off to Italy where they need to be aware that their courts say you are guilty till proven innocent. Good Luck. Expand
