This week’s episode of “Jersey Shore" - appropriately titled “cabs are here” - was disappointing to say the least.
Even if you hadn’t seen promos, you probably weren’t blindsided by Sammi’s dramatic exit. Unless, of course, you’re Ron. After emotionally abusing Sam, breaking her glasses and kicking her mangled belongings out onto the balcony, he was still somehow flabbergasted by her decision to leave.
As if merely living under the same roof as your ex wouldn't be reason enough to get the hell out…
Either way, I refuse to spend any more time talking about Sam and Ron’s star-crossed relationship. The 40-some minutes MTV gave them on Thursday night was more than enough.
As for the rest of the cast…
JWoww and Roger grab dinner at a Mexican restaurant, but it’s not as romantic as JWoww had hoped. Roger, a Seaside local, keeps bumping into old friends, leaving Jenni to awkwardly nibble on chips and salsa. How ever will she get his attention back? By donning that dominatrix getup she purchased last episode. Duh!
Snooki and Deena's failed attempt to move Sam’s bed downstairs was pretty funny, but watching them alienate that poor waiter and his neon yellow shorts was more uncomfortable than anything else. (I would like to take this opportunity to thank MTV for the hot dog projection that appeared behind Snooki while she went into grave detail about said waiter's... hot dog.) What I really wanted last night was more Pauly D.
Watching him clean his sneakers with 409 while listening to Sam and Ron fight was one of the most entertaining parts of the whole episode.
Despite the lack of funny one-liners and drunken exploits, I’m giving “Shore” the benefit of the doubt. By the looks of the mid-season trailer they released earlier this week, things will pick up in no time.
What did you think of last night’s episode? And what do you think will happen with Sam out of the picture?
