    If it seems slow and staged at first, be patient.... [it has] oh-so-much potential for a delightful guilty pleasure. [26 Jul 2013, p.62]

    In this eight-episode, hourlong show, instead of Lauren Conrad, we get Katie, who is about as interesting as a McDonald’s salad.

    The Vineyard feels less like a Martha’s Vineyard experience than a generic young-folks reality-show experience.

    It's Jersey Shore toned up as an Abercrombie & Fitch campaign. [12 Aug 2013]

    ABC Family has assembled 11 mannequins for “The Vineyard” who are so plastic, so Barbie and Ken, so perfectly put together, that they might as well have come marching off a factory line.

    Please just give me the cyanide already. I mean, my god, ABC Family, I knew you weren't good but... not THIS bad. Alright, enough of the over-reaction train, this series is nothing but awkward moments, terrible "acting" and "writing", and having nothing more to do than a giant product placement for The Black Dog.
    0/10 never again.

    This is the worst show ABC Family has ever produce. The storyline is baloney the actors are floosies and the worst part is that ABC family still didnt cancel it yet because I hope it does. Full Review »

    This review would have been different if I had not watched all the episodes. Definitely improved each week and I looked forward to each episode. Been going to The Vinyard for 33 years and I think it is pretty accurate based on my experiences. Hope it is on again next summer! Full Review »
