One of them is from South Shields I think. Its fine having people from Gateshead, North Tyneside or parts of South Tyneside, and even places like Blyth in Northumberland, but it gets ridiculous when you have people from Sunderland, Middlesbrough and County Durham!

No, Vicky's from Newcastle as well. They've basically taken different sections of the North East and put them in the show.

How is it?

Jersey shore, none of them were from the shore, mostly from north Jersey, and pauly D was actually from near providence.

Providence to the shore is a lot longer than middlesborough to newcastle, the point is to have people come from areas outwidth, to party and have a holiday, isnt it?

No it's not. I think this show's based on accents rather than Geordie people.

Half of them don't have Geordie accents though!

If you look at each of the videos, I think they're meaning on both sides of the river.

Sadly you could find a similar 'cast' anywhere in the country and people would be falling over themselves to take part if given the opportunity to get their faces on screen.

I liked Greg, he seemed like the only decent-ish one. Vicky seemed a bit sly to me. I'm not too keen on her.

It seems like an alright show, not as bad as I thought it would be

Aye, thats it - one of them (one of the meatheads) was talking on local radio yesterday saying "not many people even know that Newcastle has a beach"..

Actually, Newcastle doesn't have a beach - there are however beaches on the NE coast, which is about 9 miles east of Newcastle.

Sadly you could find a similar 'cast' anywhere in the country and people would be falling over themselves to take part if given the opportunity to get their faces on screen.
Exactly - you could change the title and all references from 'Geordie' to 'Chav' or 'Charver' and it would all still fit.

OMG turned this off after five minutes.
Where did they find these 'individuals'?
I've been entertained more watching Strangeways than this.

At least they kept up good old northeast tradition by starting fights because they were being looked at.

Glamorising flights in bars, the cast are just a bunch of slappers and muscle marys.

The sad thing about the fight is that the hand gesture was correct - he is a w****er

Not a good advertisment for the city.

I was embarrassed to say the least.

"In there like swimwear" WTF language is that

What a pile of shite! It's Viz live - The Fat Slags and those new characters - Shit for Brains.

Pull the plug now, it's a disgrace.

Definitely car crash TV. It is full of the worst type of people imaginable.

I have no idea if they are genuinely that vain and self absorbed or they are just acting up for the programme.

Gaz is vile!

Shows how low television standards have dropped over the years.

The thing is, there are tonnes of thickoes out there who love this sort of thing and lap it up. Why can't we have proper dramas? And as for MTV, it's MUSIC TELEVISION! Glad I don't have $ky.
