The Good Kind of Train Wreck. So Bad, It's Fanatastic!

I love this show. Then again, I'm almost eighteen years old. It's so cheesy and dumb that it's good. "It's like watching a train wreck" as they say. It's hilarious and highly addicting; just don't be stupid. It's obviously not for kids. That being said, I don't think it's completely off. People are judging this show a bit too highly... It's VH1 in the 21st century, people. Don't go comparin' it to good 'ol Green Acres now. Things are waaay more edgy these days...
