Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (9 ):
Kids say (8 ):

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.
