    It does feel like the last of the fist pumps are fast approaching, but until then, soak up the sun and the new term "guido bingo."

    At least season five starts better than Italy ended. The brood is back where they belong.

    He sighs, "I got nothing left in me." Neither does this show.

    This show is so repetitive. Every episode is the same. Same clubs, drama, same everything. Jersey Shore is the disgrace of all reality TV. MTV Should cancel this show. If this goes to Season 6 The World OF TV Will Burn to the Ground. Full Review »

    Easily the worst show to ever grace television and that is a triumph. I cannot believe that CRITICS have made this get a 53!!! How!?!? What is there to like? WHAT? A bunch of stuck up broads do random stuff and get angry at each other. What is there to like? This is horrible and pathetic and I am ashamed to live in the same country that produces such an abomination of a 'show'. Full Review »
