What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Floribama Shore is a reboot of the once popular reality series Jersey Shore. It features all the excessive drinking, partying, hypersexualized behavior, and fighting the franchise is known for. Its characterization of Southerners relies a lot on gender stereotypes, too. Local Panama City Beach haunts are visible throughout.

What's the story?
FLORIBAMA SHORE is an unscripted series about a group of 20-somethings living in Panama City Beach, Florida. It features PCB locals and friends Nilsa Prowant and Kortni Gilson, moving into a house with Southern strangers, including Kirk Medas, Jeremiah Buoini, Gus Smyrnios, Codi Butts, Candace Rice, and Aimee Hall, for the summer. From working beach service to drinking, gossiping, and searching for romance, the cast does what it can to maximize the experience. It doesn't always go smoothly, but they're committed to being friends.
Is it any good?
This predicable Southern reboot of the MTV hit Jersey Shore series features all the boozy, hypersexualized drama the franchise is known for. It also relies on old gender stereotypes and other over-the-top behaviors that are characterized as being traditionally Southern to make it unique.
No one in the cast is particularly original, and the mixture of their superficial conversations and endless debauchery makes them less so. This, combined with its traditional Real World-type documentary style, makes Floribama Shore feel outdated from the the first episode.
