After filming the first half of season 2 in Miami and now returning to the Jersey Shore for the second half, the “Jersey Shore” cast proves to be the best one yet, saying goodbye to the confrontational Angelina while embracing Snooki’s friend, Deena.
Since Deena is practically a clone of Snooki, the episodes are twice as entertaining because the two are loud and outspoken.
Deena also entertains viewers with her secret crush on the grossly muscular Mike “The Situation” and silly things she does with Snooki, such as playing one-on-one wiffle ball on the roof of the house.
While Deena is popular among the Jersey Shore house, Sammi and Ronnie, the couple that formed during season 1, aren’t the house favorites.
The drama between Ronnie and Sammi hasn’t ceased and is increasingly agitated with each new episode.
Sammi picks arguments with Ronnie concerning his previous unfaithful actions in Miami, while talking in a New Jersey accent coated with a pompous attitude.
While the show would be better without Sammi, this half of the season is still more entertaining than the first because they are back in the town where it all began: Seaside Heights.
The girls are surrounded at nightclubs by their ideal “juicehead gorillas,” as Snooki would call tan, muscular guidos; and the boys are able to go to their favorite barber shop, gym, and dry cleaners.
Although only four episodes have aired so far, Snooki has already gotten into trouble.
In the third episode, she is arrested for public intoxication after causing a scene on the beach.
Subsequent to yelling “Where’s the beach?” while running alongside it on the boardwalk, Snooki even being able to arrive at the beach was surprising; however, she is out of jail and now uses the “head on her shoulders” to keep her alcohol consumption under control.
While the show is vulgar and should only be watched as a “guilty pleasure,” drama-lovers and those looking for a good laugh should tune in to watch MTV’s “Jersey Shore” on Thursdays at 10 p.m.
