Southern Charm Savannah: Dumb and Dumber.

I have been to Savannah many times. This does not represent the citizens at all. I am embarrassed. Step up Bravo. And I have one thing to say to Lyle. Get a girlfriend that can have a conversation without that open mouthed, dumb, moron look about her. She is clueless and kinda stupid. Bless her heart. You have to feel sorry for her. She don't know any better. Move on and be the sweet man you are. You will find someone that will appreciate you.

Ti many lies being told. Everybody judging Cathrine when its Ravenua that is a asshole and lier. No decent woman would put up with him, too bad she is truly in love with him .

Bad choice young people, they drink too much. Lie about what they do and say. Wouldn't want my children making these choices in real life.

This title has:

Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Some folks may find it entertaining, but this reality series lacks genuine hospitality. Southern Charm Savannah features a group of millennials who revel in their family's legacies, which range from having a great-great-grandfather who signed the Declaration of Independence, to being related to town's first Jewish settler. It also highlights how their families' dark pasts, including plantation and slave ownership, as well as criminal behavior, contribute to their current wealth and social status. Regardless of history, the cast is clearly proud of its Southern heritage.

It's slightly better than its sister series, but most of the show revolves around individuals celebrating their pedigree and justifying their place in Savannah's upper crust. It also features lots of self-centered and privileged behavior, some of which simply reinforces common stereotypes about people from the region.
