    It's on at 5 PM here today, I might watch a bit before we leave for a Christmas party at friends (they're leaders in the local leather community, and the arrival of "Santa Claws" is always a big thrill).

    I was going to the Jersey shore beginning in the early 1950s, our relatives had several homes there, be curious to see the comparison. Do the roommates have Jersey accents? Or are they more fortunate, and come from other parts of the US?

    I have never seen the show but I did see a clip and it just happen to be the one when this guy punched this woman in the face. Thank god he got arrested. There is not excuse for that type of behavior. I come world that "REAL MEN" do not hit a woman ever! That guy was nothing more than a punk. I would never watch that show.

    That show is fucking stupid and makes us Italians look worse than the Sopranos did. Unlike the show All Italians aren't hot blooded whores who tan everyday and think they're gods gift to whomever. The ratings stink and i hope MTV cancels that bullshit and never tries that crap ass stunt again. Do a show about different kinds of younger Italians, it's shitty me whom does well for himself is mixed in with a spiky haired dude who tans to look dark but doesn't like dark and lives at home with mommy but thinks he's better than all. I have respectable Italian sisters, not them bitches on the show. Mtv has shitty programing but Jersey Shore is the worse!

    Ah, I had no idea... No, watching ignorant people behaving badly is not my idea of entertainment, either. I seem to recall the first of these "Real World" kind of shows, as I think they were called some years ago, and I guess this is the same concept? But those early participants were somewhat less trailer-trash than what you describe, mostly middle-class college kids or a little older.

    Well, I'll still try to tune in tonight, if only because it involves the Jersey shore, and judge for myself.

    Agreed and agreed!
    Especially because I've lived in the Jersey Shore for over 8 years and that's definitely not the kind of people who live here. I dont understand how someone could watch this either. The guys aren't even that hot.

    Oh, is that the cast? I see how they're going for the bad-boy look. So pretentious, I like my men natural and unassuming, not trying to strike an attitude. Some of them look like they're auditioning to be Army Drill Sergeants, as if they ever could be. And that 1 guy with the tats -- is he doing this as part of his probation community service? Cadillac indeed! He better hope GM doesn't go bankrupt again.

    I'm from Jersey and this portrays Jersey as a fantasy land for wasted,drunken,burnt out fake Italians. If Mtv wants to do a show on Jersey then go to Newark,NJ and duck for cover.

    Agree! I'm also from New Jersey (born in Glen Ridge in 1949 if you know it, raised in Upper Montclair, which my Dutch ancestors founded in the 1600s). And Italians are indeed a major group in Northern New Jersey, well represented in my late parents' social circles when I was a child and among their most intimate friends, distinguished professional people who were nothing like the negative mob stereotypes from TV & movies.

    I do judge people rather harshly, but never prejudicially based on race, skin color, ethnicity, nationality or any other stereotype, nor did my late parents, bless them, who were way ahead of their generation in that regard. But I do look at the quality of the person underneath the skin, and behind the name, and personality & character elements do matter to me.

    And so there are wealthy & prominent people who disgust me, and poor & obscure people that I'm honored to count among my friends today. In my estimation, decency counts more than dollars, personality more than pedigree.

    Well I'll try to watch this show today, and report back what I think. We'll see if it's "The Sopranos Next Generation" summering on the shore, or what the hell it is.

    It's not entertaining when you actually are Italian and your non Italian peers see this so called "Entertainment" and think this is what your heritage is about. All cultures strive for the best but MTV is basically saying this is the best that young Italians have out there, so put them on TV,let them fuck up our images even more and let the world think we're all women beating,tanned Guidos.
    It's not Entertaining it's offensive crap that a crap network put on TV to expose a quarter of young Italians.

    I seriously doubt anyone is going to not like Italians cuz of this dumb show. Which I find just awful to watch in a car wreck kind of way. (I also don't have cable so have only watched a couple episodes doing cardio at the gym...I find the people repulsive, but funny)


    Lighten up, people.

    It would be like me getting offended from Les Claypool's mockumentary "Electric Apricot: The Quest for Festeroo" cuz it plays on hippie stereotypes (and I'm a hippie...and found it hilarious). Or me getting upset that Queer Eye for the Straight Guy exists, as it makes ALL gay people seem like those dudes, that I don't identify with NOR do I know many who are like that.


    But if you say that represents 1/4 of the culture (which I disagree with, I'd say about .5%), then they have some ground to stand on portraying it that way! icon_wink.gif

    I'm in the bijockmus.,vindog & rujock camp! Hilarious! We're you guys as pissed off over Real Housewives of Jersey ("prostitution WHORA!!!" cue table flip!!)? NOBODY worth knowing is gonna think this is a representation of the Italian/American populus! Come on! It's trash tv & anybody watching knows it. Lighten up.

    As someone who is actually a native of the Jersey Shore, I would just like to say that this MTV show is a gross exaggeration of the people of my town....for the most part...

    I mean, there are only a few people like that...

    I see grown men wearing True Religion jeans and Ed Hardy and I want to shoot myself. I have a hard time enjoying myself once either of those things have entered into the equation.

    I'm only 10 minutes into it, and I'm already cringing... dunno if I'll even get through it. The people on it are soooooo fake and tacky.

    What's odd is that I spent the summers of my youth on the beach about 10 miles north of Seaside Heights, and the Italian American cultural presence was never in my awareness. Culturally, Mantoloking is a world apart. Seaside Heights was just the place with the amusement park that we'd go to once in a very rare while.
