Jersey Shore can be revolting. But man, we missed it so much.
The fist-pumping, classless meatheads from the Northeast - you can't even say they're from New Jersey, as only two of the eight cast members are - invaded South Beach last night in the much-anticipated second season premiere on MTV. Why Miami?
Because they could bring episodes to air sooner filming in warmer climes. In the words of the great Pauly D, describing his native Rhode Island in the winter, "You can't do nothin' in this weatha. Can't tan, can't creep, girls don't come out in this weatha."
Enough said, my friends.
Pauly, The Situation, J-Woww and Snooki road tripped to South Beach while the rest of the gang flew. The fireworks soon followed, and we're not talking about the ones the guys lit off in the cornfield. Two of the same sources of drama started it again: Angelina and RonSam.
The Situation reacts to Angelina's surprise arrival in the house.
Having just called dibs on a three-person bedroom, Pauly and Mike are stunned by the arrival of Angelina, who waltzes in believing people should give her another chance.
Problem is, no one wants to, nor did they know she was even coming back for Season 2 of Jersey Shore, apparently. The guys are like, whatever. The girls? They hate her.
Meanwhile, tension with Ronnie and Sammi is predictable and lame. They're annoying, and need to get a grip - is this going to be an Audrina-Justin thing spanning years?
When the gang heads out to the clubs, the girls can't even make it out of the cab without a physical altercation almost breaking out. JWoww needs to lay off the steroids.
Hours later, Ronnie is really mean to Sammi, who storms off and leaves him to get belligerently drunk with the guys, stepping on land mines and grenades left and right.
The Season 2 premiere was nothing too exceptional, but it delivered the same entertainment value we were legitimately excited to have back after a long winter layoff.
