- Better on DVD: They've released the entire first season on DVD, and it is definitely better. It has the unaired episodes as well, so that helps.

- Snark Bait: During the show's brief run, New Jerseyans took a great deal of pleasure pointing out and mocking the show's lack of research as to what the Jersey Shore was like.
- Too Good to Last
