A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The series offers a stereotypical view of what people from Tyneside are like. The importance of fitting in and doing some work in exchange for something are also minor themes.
Positive Role Models
The housemates are more interested in partying than anything else, but they respect Anna Parkin and take their job with her seriously.
Violence & Scariness
Arguments and occasional fist fights break out between the cast and other folks.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Nudity (usually women's breasts) is blurred. The cast is often shown in their underwear or skimpy bathing suits; their work uniforms are tight, sexy, and show bare male chests, cleavage, and legs. Contains crude references to genitals ("c--k," "t-ts," etc., some of which are bleeped) and descriptions of sexual acts. Men are shown pouring beer down a cast member's breasts and engaging in other acts; cameras show cast members under bedcovers allegedly engaged in sexual behavior (but nothing is actually shown).

Words like "s--t," "f--k," and British curses are frequent, but bleeped. The word "pissed" (meaning drunk) is often heard, too.

Products & Purchases
Logos for Luis Vuitton, Pringles crisps, Dr. Pepper soda, Evian water, and other items visible. Lots of references are made to Jaegermeister beer.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Drinking (beer, shots, champagne, wine, etc.) is constant; the gang enjoys drinking Jagerbombs (beer or an energy drink combined with hard liquor). Drunken behavior and vomiting is visible.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Geordie Shore, the popular British adaptation of MTV's Jersey Shore, features all the over-the-top antics of its sister series (endless drinking, promiscuous behavior, swearing, fighting), but due to the differences in U.K. culture and broadcast practices, the content is even stronger than the original. Curious stateside viewers might be interested in the Geordie culture, but what they will find here are mostly stereotypical representations of folks from the Tyneside region of England.
Is It Any Good?
The popular British adaptation of Jersey Shore offers lots of stereotypical characterizations about what it means to be from the Tyneside region North East England. Like the original, it uses these generalizations as a justification for the cast to play up their personalities, and engage over-the-top partying and negative behaviors.
The conversations are sometimes difficult to understand due to the regional dialect. However, the very little of what is said contains any substance outside of talking about drinking, sexual activities, and the importance of wearing self-tanner.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
