Just about the most brutal review
I've read from a mainstream source:
JERSEY Shore (Tuesdays, 9.30pm on MTV) is the most life-changing show on television. Everyone should watch it. It will work a miracle on your soul. Inspire you to be a better person. Make you appreciate your life. Encourage you to cherish things youíve always overlooked.
Jersey Shore accomplishes this impressive feat by being so unspeakably bad it makes everything that isnít Jersey Shore look wonderful, like green pastures filled with gangly newborn lambs and gurgling brooks and sunshine.
Iím serious. This show makes vomit look good. It makes Twi-mums look good. It makes the music of Justin Bieber sound good. It even makes Charlie Sheen look good. In fact, if my life after Jersey Shore consists solely of a horde of Twi-mums singing barbershop quartet renditions of Justin Bieber songs while Charlie Sheen vomits all over me, I will be genuinely delighted. Rapt. Relieved.
I will never take anything for granted again.
