JERSEY SHORE – 2/10/12

February 10th, 2012 | 3 Comments | Posted in Jersey Shore Season 5

Just like JWow’s face, I hope they iron things out, and get back together soon, if for no other reason than to give me more time to figure out what exactly Rodger does for a living. All we know is that he has a “work phone,” but that he is allowed to call off of work if he can’t find his normal phone, and he occasionally has to work later than scheduled. I always thought he was the lead singer of Avenged Sevenfold, so frankly, I stumped.

While JWow has troubles getting near Rodger, Pauly has a different sort of problem, as he realizes that he has a stalker. Creepiness aside, I don’t blame the girl for wanting to be around Pauly. He is as committed to having a good time as he is to that star design on his elbow. (The number of shirts with the star design owned by Pauly > the number of shirts with an “L” owned by Shirley’s roommate.) His enthusiasm is refreshing. Like this episode, when he opens up a box of cracker jacks, gets a prize, and declares that this is the best day of his life. Unfortunately for the stalker, she’s not that pretty, so doesn’t have much of a chance with Pauly. Nonetheless, she follows him around the boardwalk, sits outside of the Shore Store while he works, and shows up at the bar where he and Vinny are playing pool. Pauly is dumbfounded, and has no idea how the girl knows where he is (hey Pauly, here’s a hint: it could be the bright lights from the cameras that are following you around all day. Just saying. It’s a possibility.)

Vinny, fresh off his Plan B smush, is feeling confident, and decides to play a joke on Pauly, by inviting the stalker girl over and telling her that Pauly likes her, but is too shy to make the first move. As she has been stalking Pauly for a while, she clearly knows it’s a lie, but plays along anyway. While being introduced, Pauly has the same look of shock and disbelief on his face as I did this morning when I realized that this season runs until April 15th. Luckily, Pauly is quick on his feet and smoothly extracts himself from this awkward situation by standing there silently for 5 minutes then running into the bathroom to hide.

Lastly, we learn that Mike’s older brother Moses (yes, that Moses) is dating Deena’s sister, creating the potential for Mike and Deena to become in-laws. Mike as always is looking to create some sort of drama from this news. Unfortunately for Mike, it may be harder than usual this time around, as Deena says that she is always on her toes around Mike, making her only 3 inches shy of being tall enough to ride the bumper cars. What she lacks in height, she makes up in brilliance, as noted in her Pauly Quote of the Night, “A leper never sheds his stripes.”

That’s about it for this week’s episode. Two other quick points before we depart. During a commercial break I learned that if you, or any of your loved ones, have died from using Yaz birth control, you may be entitled to financial compensation. I’m not sure how much money you’d be owed if you died from that product but it’s definitely something you’ll want to look in to.

And lastly, I’m the first to admit when I am wrong. I made fun of “I Just Want My Pants Back” a few times, saying it will be the worst show ever, sure to be cancelled midway through the first episode, etc. But I looked up the ratings, and the show was far more successful than I could have ever imagined. Although the premiere had less viewers than an episode of “American Pickers” (really), it did have more viewers that the Puppy Bowl Post-Game show (probably not). So looks like there will be one or two more weeks of “I Just Want That Half Hour Back” before MTV does the right thing and simply reruns the Jersey Shore episode that just aired.

Till next time.

  1. To take a line from your recap; “I am turned off by your misspelling of not one, not two, but THREE of the main character’s names/nicknames”.

    Roger does not have a “d” in his name.
    JWOWW has two w’s at the end of her nickname.
    Snooki does not have an “e” at the end of her nickname.

    If you are going to recap a show, take 2 seconds to find the correct spelling of the character’s names. Otherwise, it just makes you seem lazy.

  2. I totally get you, casper33, but to Reese’s defense, JWoww’s line at the beginning of the show makes me cringe every week, whereas I laugh at the misspellings in the recap.

    I think Reese’s misspellings of the “actors'” names is proportionately appropriate to the atrocity of JWoww’s butchery of the English language. IMHO, it reaffirms their irrelevance nicely:)

  3. I think the jwow thing was intentional. i thought there was a post about how she doesn’t deserve the extra w. LOL!
