Jersey Shore Delayed Again


Apparently the mayor of Florence, Italy is having second thoughts about the whole Jersey Shore thing going on in Florence. MTV had finally been given permits to shoot in town as long as they observed a bunch of restrictive rules which will make this season really, really boring and challenge the skills of a team of editors. One thing the cast still had going for it though was the chance to film at some of the great landmarks of Florence. This was necessary because basically the show is turning into a film at the house or nowhere else kind of thing and you could have done that on a backlot in Los Angeles and just superimposed some Italian shots on a green screen.

Now though, the mayor has yanked some of the permits which would have allowed filming at the landmarks and MTV is going to have to work to get them back. The airport scenes in the US had already started filming and the cast was ready to leave when the announcement was made. They should just pull the plug now. Is filming in Italy really going to be that much better than another summer in Jersey?

I'd rather watch them somewhere tacky than somewhere nice. It's more appropo.

I say just stick them on a deserted island somewhere, let them scour for food and shelter, and let them vote each other off into the shark infested oceans. Much more entertaining, no?

Florence is an absolutely beautiful city. They don't need the Jersey Shore people trashing it up.

Good for Florence.

They can keep delaying it forever, as far as I'm concerned. The world would be a better place if these pieces of shit dropped off the face of the earth.

Personally, I love this mess of a show and can't wait for it to be on t.v. I don't give a shit where they go as long as I get to watch it.

Mr. Mayor of Florence, please don't let your beautiful city become the laughing stock of Europe.

I kind of want them to go to Italy...just so they can get bitchslapped by REAL Italians. However, if they're having a hard time getting the permits, MTV should do the spin-off shows.

Send them to Italy. Maybe they'll piss the locals off so much they'll want to drown them head first in the Trevi fountain.

Yes, I know. The fountain is in Rome, not Florence. Still it was fun to picture those idiots being drowned for a second.

I'm sure Florence has fountains too.

I have no clue why they are taking it to Italy. Just cause they're all Italian? They should go to Amsterdam...there they can smoke pot walking down the street. It's a little more laid back.

Other than that...might as well go back to the Jersey Shore. I go to the Jersey Shore all the time...and the places they go to are so tacky and we would never go there. The Jersey Shore isn't all like that at all. LBI is awesome...and so is Spring Lake. No fist pumpers.

I say we send them to the Middle East. They'd be sure to piss off every terrorist within 5000 miles.

Florence? Why Florence? Its too beautiful to be mucked up with this stupid lot.

Send them to Naples, lets see how far they get there without being shot in the knees.

I don't know why they got the permits in the first place. I lived in Florence, they don't seem to tolerate this kinda of thing (American realities shows). Florence is a immensely cultural city, home of Dante Alighieri and other masters. I wish they stay away from there.

Florence is a tiny village that currently produces nothing of any cultural value. And yet the Mayor was mad to even think of letting them film there, and God knows why they wanted to: there's no beach, no swimming pools apart from tiny hotel ones, they should be at a beach resort like Rimini - the equivalent of the Jersey Shore or Miami - rather than an inland city. This was entirely misconceived from the start.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. They need to shut it down in Italy and MOVE IT TO THE GRAND STRAND. Myrtle Beach, SC.

Snookers can have all the fried pickles she wants!

@ lauren - you must be talking about Florence, Alabama?

RocketQueen said...

LOL! Can you imagine if they sent them all to an Island - Survivor-style?? Oh man. SIGN ME UP to watch that. Every minute of it.
