For All You Jersey Shore Fans in the UK

Everyone knows how much I love the Jersey Shore (especially the Jersey Shore tactical RPG). Well, I can't tell you how excited I am by this. Ladies and Gentleman, I bring you The Geordie Shore!

The UK version of the show will be made by Liverpool-based Lime Pictures, producer of another teen reality show, The Only Way Is Essex, which was a hit for digital channel ITV2 last year, and Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks.

Taylor said it would be "loosely based on the American show". "The things we are taking away is the great cast - memorable characters who are funny and brash but at the same time warm and get on with each other," she added.

I think the best part is the production company has a person who's supposed to be the "head of factual", and they're making a reality show.

The real travesty was Grizzlor

Sure, Leech didn't look all that hot in the She-Ra cartoon.

But you have to admit, the original toy was pretty bizarre to begin with. I think they went a little overboard with the suction cups. (I definitely liked him when i was a kid, i admit. I thought all of the Horde was awesome. Until i saw the He-Man/She-Ra movie, anyway.)

If anything, the real problem with Leech in the She-Ra cartoons was that they hardly ever used him. They tended to favor the insanely annoying Catra instead.

Grizzlor, on the other hand... i don't know what was going on there. Check out his toy.

That is a big fuzzy dude who is ready to party. But in the cartoon?

That's a sad mantle of fur. And cartoon Grizzlor is skinny and dumb looking. (And I don't know why Hordak was always putting a mouth-breather like that on monitor duty.) Really terrible cartooning there.
