I watched my first episode of Geordie Shore today.
My verdict - less of the ‘aye’ and more of the ‘why’?
SWTF are these guys up to.
I’ve seen a few episodes of Jersey Shore (same same but different format) but, ermergerd, these lasses make Snooki look like a saint.
I got the banter, I could understand that (I have Ant & Dec and watching countless episodes of Alan Shearer on MotD to thank for that *hat tip*), but it wasn’t how they were saying it, it was what they were saying.
Any program where you can say “It’s like she was sewing my fanny flaps together” has got to be a bit off. Hilarious, in the spluttering, oh my god can you believe it kinda of way, and that was the tame bit.
You also got to see a bit of “knob sucking”, a couple having a pissed root in the shower then a hand shandy under the covers.
Seriously - they know there are camera’s right?
Based in Newcastle Upon Tyne it has been running since 2011 on MTV and follows a group of Geordies out having loads of fun at home and abroad, whilst wearing very little clothing, a lot of bronzer (not gender specific) and drinking loads of shots.
Oh yeah, in this one episode there was also some pissing in a box, Charlotte I think, and one of the girls smacking her boyfriend across the face, which then prompted him to go out and drop £10,000 on an engagement ring. Classy.
I felt hung-over just watching it, you know that queazy feeling where a little bit of bile keeps coming up, but I couldn’t turn away. That.
Now the episode is over I feel hollow and a wee bit grotty, with a hankering for a kebab. I’m not sure if I will ever recover my moral high ground, I'm thinking I should probably watch another episode to check.
