They promoted the hell out of it, of course it did well
I'm surprised that I'm the only one here that loved it! IMO it was so much better than the first episode of Jersey Shore!

[QUOTE=YvanEhtNioj;331684]Someone correct me if I'm wrong but isn't there a rule about showing/talking about/ or alluding to minors having sex on TV? I remember that was a [B]biiiiiggg [/B]thing when USA Skins came out. I know it hasn't hindered 16 & Pregnant, but the only thing that caught my eye last night was when they showed two of the kids getting into bed together under the sheets and then later it was revealed that they were having sex.[/QUOTE] Nevermind the fact that USA Skins was straight up garbage.

[URL="http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/review/mtvs-buckwild-tv-review-408358"]Here[/URL] is a journalistic take on the show, from the Hollywood Reporter: [QUOTE]Buckwild is everything MTV wants, and it's everything people will expect -- which is exactly what makes it so useless. It adds nothing. It's not shocking, it's not interesting, and it's not quite crazy enough to become part of the zeitgeist. There's nothing about these young rednecks that is particular to West Virginia, either, as much as any other state would surely deny it. These are just kids gone wild (though no wilder than you'd find in any college town). The biggest problem is, we've seen it all before.[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE=Bacchus;331763][URL="http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/review/mtvs-buckwild-tv-review-408358"]Here is a journalistic take on the show, from the Hollywood Reporter.[/URL][/QUOTE] Just to clarify, I never stated that this was some ground breaking program that was extraordinarily amazing. It's not. I found it to be a fun hour of television that I enjoyed, and will likely watch again. I grew up around people exactly like these characters so nothing about it was shocking or new to me, it was just an enjoyable watch. Is it must see TV? No, I'll catch it when I can until I no longer enjoy it.
[QUOTE=ILoveRW;331696]Plus she was wearing a cute little outfit, with matching necklace and big hooped earing (not to mention the matching hair), all to put her kids to bed.[/QUOTE] Well to be fair, she said that she had to put her kids to bed so she could (not verbatim) 'do adult things' or something along those lines. I took it as, she was about togo out with her friends in a bit, so she wanted to put her kids to bed before she left.

They don't. Buckwild makes The Hills look like award winning TV.
I'm really not trying to be a jerk here but is the main kid mentally handicapped in some way? From the snippets I've seen (I refuse to watch the show) it seems that way.

Watching the show actually make me quite enviable, it would be nice to be stupid enough to have no worries.
[QUOTE=JL81790;331780]I'm really not trying to be a jerk here but is the main kid mentally handicapped in some way? From the snippets I've seen (I refuse to watch the show) it seems that way.[/QUOTE] I think he's just a big redneck, but because he can't enunciate properly and really isn't articulate, it can be perceived as him being 'mentally challenged.' But that's probably one of the reasons he is in the show. I can see this catering to a younger crowd who want a wilder version of Teen Mom. I watched it, but I can't find myself liking any of the people on the show. I think that girl Shae is gorgeous, although I'm way too old (33) to even really be into these kinds of shows. At least on Jersey Shore they had some older people but these are all kids on this one trying to drive ATVS and stuff in the forest and thinking they are the redneck version of jack*ss.

Someday in a galaxy far away, aliens will watch "Buckwild" and determine our species has no value...
I am in love with this show. I don't care if a show is 'fake' and whatnot, I never care if a show is fake, I just care if the cast is good and entertaining. Which these people are! I wish I lived like these people. And I hate how people call them 'trashy' just because they like to live more dangerously and they don't take themselves too seriously.

I don't think this show is that trashy at all, I've seen much worse on TV. In fact right this moment I'm watching a reality show where some kids are on vacation dancing on some podium in the middle of a street naked. Unbeknown to them, their parents are in the bushes spying them, "oh no she has no top on". So trashy are these group of friends, they managed to make out with about 10 different people, get in a full blown argument with each other and show the world every part of there anatomy, all within about 2 hours of getting off the plane. I LOVE IT. Edit: Now they are giving *******s on a boat. Unsurprisingly the show is trending worldwide, #sunsexandsuspiciousparents Yeah so buckwild is pretty tame.
[QUOTE=Aereas;331975]You must mean the ones who haven't already seen Beavis & Butthead, South Park & Family Guy.[/QUOTE] Family Guy is pure genius. Anybody who thinks otherwise can't grasp the subject matter/have a legit sense of humor. [QUOTE=YvanEhtNioj;331976]I'd hope they'd be smart enough to know that those are animated..[/QUOTE] Agreed.
[QUOTE=Nostalgic;331987]Family Guy is pure genius. Anybody who thinks otherwise can't grasp the subject matter/have a legit sense of humor. [/QUOTE] I'm not easily offended and I say a lot of inappropriate stuff but Family Guy lost me as a viewer in the no cutaway episode where Brian gave Stewie a ****** in the bank vault. I've caught episodes here and there but I'm not on the bandwagon the way I used to be.
And I understand, JL. Anyway, I can't believe Cara slept in someone else's bad and gave head but then got mad when confronted about it. Chicken**** if I ever saw one.
[QUOTE=Nostalgic;331987]Family Guy is pure genius. Anybody who thinks otherwise can't grasp the subject matter/have a legit sense of humor. Agreed.[/QUOTE] Family Guy was great until halfway through Season 4. Since then it's been very lame
[QUOTE=Nightwolf;332083]Family Guy was great until halfway through Season 4. Since then it's been very lame[/QUOTE] This. American Dad is starting to lose it as well nowadays.
[QUOTE=Nightwolf;332083]Family Guy was great until halfway through Season 4. Since then it's been very lame[/QUOTE] This is just simply not true. The show got better when Season 4 started. Before it was just Stewie this and Stewie that.
Are these kids under the age of 21? I really hope people don't act like this.
[QUOTE=RMD1;332182]Are these kids under the age of 21? I really hope people don't act like this.[/QUOTE] I think there 16, or around that age.
Uh, they HAVE to be at least 20. They have a house to their own and they're going to clubs/bars and one girl has nude photoshoots surfing around the net.
