TV Review: Snooki & JWoww Season 1 Episode 6
Roger is barely in this episode at all.
Needless to say, fuck you MTV.
Also, adorable dogs.
TL;DR Nothing happens, but we’re used to that by now, aren’t we? At the end Jenni gets into a phone fight with Roger after he finds out she’s being sued. So stick around for next episode, I guess.
That’s something I’ve been noticing with this show. Nothing of interest happens during the show, then they tack something that looks interesting onto the end. Then that is resolved (usually poorly) next episode. Repeat. Jersey Shore was notorious for this, too, but at least they would manage to fit something decent into the show itself.
Anyway, this episode sees the girls decide to go out for the first time in Jersey City. Snooki volunteers at a doggy daycare, Jenni goes to a cooking lesson, and that phone fight begins. Keeping it simple.
Nothing ever feels like it has any impact on this show. The girls just find weird things to do while I wait for Roger’s next one-liner. Hopefully this Jenni/Roger spat will be the start of some genuine fucking drama.
I think Snooki being a wet blanket due to her pregnancy (ie: she can’t drink) isn’t helping. Sober Snooki is boring Snooki.
Why I hate this episode:
I don’t really have a lot of specific complaints this episode. It’s just generally dull and inconsequential.
And I want it to be exciting and inconsequential. Gosh!
At cooking class Jenni meets some random bitch called Ashley, who she then invites to her and Snooki’s drinks thing. Rude. I know Snooki is being a boring ho, but I’d be pretty unimpressed if my best friend invited someone neither of us knew to what was supposed to be our best-girl-friends drinks.
And the creeper who stares at the girls during the drinks was obviously staged. Snooze.
Snooki volunteers for the dog thing, then shows up late and complains when she gets “attacked” by the dogs. Rude.
Oh, and Jenni looks like Rose McGowan without makeup on. Those lip fillers aren’t fooling anyone. Shudder.
Reasons to watch:
There are a few choice moments, though.
Jenni actually says that Snooki is playing the pregnancy card too much and she’s sick of it. Finally, something even close to real drama.
The girls go out to eat and compare their cheating stories. Jenni cheated on a long term boyfriend with his best friend, then Snooki 1-ups her, having cheated on a boyfriend with his brother. I loved it.
I wish I was Ashley. I’m boring and have no social life, too. I want to go drinking with Snooki and JWoww, dammit.
Snooki recalls her vet tech training when talking about the volunteer position. She then says she never did anything with her schooling. You don’t say?
The dogs she works with are all adorable as fuck. And trust Snooki to get mobbed by a bunch of cute-as-hell midget dogs.
Also, from personal experience, dogs like licking fake tan, so that’d probably explain it.
Best line of the episode goes to Snooki when she’s criticising Jenni’s healthy diet: “You eat fucking prunes.” There’s something very insightful about that.
Oh, and Roger be mad as fuck on the phone. Make this into something interesting, MTV. Goddamn.
