Jersey Shore may have come to an end, but that doesn't mean MTV is ready to stop putting out the kinds of trashy, mindless, ridiculous reality shows we all claim not to watch but actually DVR every week. The network's latest attempt? Buckwild, a series about nine friends living in a tiny West Virginia town called Sissonville. The promos presented it as redneck reality programming at its best. There were pools fashioned in the backs of dump trucks, one cast member proudly proclaimed he doesn't deal with "none of that Internet stuff," and everyone's idea of fun seemed to be sitting in the back of a pick-up truck while someone drives through the mud in the backwoods. There aren't any spray tans or GTL philosophies, but do we really need all of that when we've got things like muddin''?
Buckwild's series premiere, which aired on MTV last night along with its follow-up episode, was exactly as it was advertised to be. That's both good and bad. As for the positives, Buckwild met our (low) expectations. The bad? Though the cast members' antics were certainly wild, the series has yet to present anything particularly shocking or new to really hook discerning viewers into sticking around for the rest of the reason.
One thing the show doesn't need to work on, however? The cast members are definitely talented at doling out truly idiotic quotes. Call it the foundation for this show's possible eventual success. Or, if you're more jaded, just call it moronic. Either way, check out our picks for The 10 Stupidest Things Said on MTV's Buckwild.
