I watch this because I love seeing other train wrecks in action. However, the slutty clothing they wear, the types of things they do at their job, and the way they treat each other is sickening. I can't imagine people really act like this in real life. It has to be amped up for this show. I personally wouldn't let my under 18's watch this because of these reasons. Call me old fashioned, but since when did watching a show about bar skanks count as quality tv?

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1):
Kids say: Not yet rated

From serving customers burgers and beer to continually bickering with each other about their looks, attitudes, and other issues, the women featured here offer little more than a chance to watch them drink, party, and argue. Despite the fact that some of these women are working hard to earn cash to go to college or start a new business, it's hard to take them seriously.

It's not clear why these women have their own TV show, as any attempts to tell a story are overshadowed by their drunken, over-the-top behavior. Some folks may find them entertaining enough to watch, but it's unlikely that you'll find anything educational or inspiring here.
