Serious waste of time...

Watching the shows like putting your brain on ice. There's not much substance at all and it's about a bunch of early 20 somethings that don't have much substance to them. Way too obvious that they are saying prepared lines.

Is It Any Good?

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

The formulaic and voyeuristic unscripted series is Atlanta, Georgia's contribution to the Shore franchise. Granted, it isn't taking place on an actual shore, given that Buckhead is landlocked. However, it does its best to follow in the footsteps of its sister series by doing all it can to create and maximize drama for entertainment's sake. The 20+ something adults featured on the show seem to spend the majority of their time drinking, arguing, and enjoying some sexual escapades. Cameras also follow as some individual cast members negotiate their own personal life-changing moments. If you are a fan of this type of thing, you might be inclined to tune in. But Buckhead Shore doesn't offer anything innovative or new outside of its geographic location.
