Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Buckhead Shore features all the expected drinking, catty behavior, and strong sexual innuendo that has become a trademark of all of MTV's Jersey Shore spin-offs. There's lots of cursing (much of which is bleeped) too. Issues like coming out is a theme. One episode features a minor accident where someone gets hurt.
Is It Any Good?
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.
