On this day 2 years ago was the launch http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/8...eality-TV.html http://metro.co.uk/2011/05/28/geordi...shouter-26167/ of the popular UK telly show Geordie Shore which at the point of launch in May 2011 had been previously conceived in the wake of the success of US TV show Jersey Shore which aired http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/200...improve/36009/ on (MTV?) in the US in December 2009.

Following the launch and success http://metro.co.uk/2012/11/15/geordi...es-yet-620064/ of Geordie Shore, 2 more Jersey Shore inspired and oriented shows have launched, the first was The Valleys set in Wales which launched http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz...lity-show.html on 25 September 2012 and the second was Gandía Shore set in Spain which launched http://www.formulatv.com/noticias/27...la-mtv-espana/ on October 14, 2012.

The show which echoes Jersey Shore with it's Geordie residents having distinctively orange skin (a point which has been referenced in various songs including Barley Political - Key Of Awesome’s track Jersey Shore Parody Song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EyBwZeoxISk and rather unfavourably in B Dizzle's eponymously titled track http://www.songcastmusic.com/profiles/BDizzle entitled Jersey Shore) has attracted some criticism after the show was criticized http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage...st-region.html for being a contributing factor to the north west having the highest alcohol rate in the UK after health campaign organisation Balance, which is based in the North East, hit out at the show for helping to glamorise alcohol and several of it’s cast members have been subject to high profile news coverage including cast members Holly Hagen being intimately involved with X Factor hit-maker Frankie Cocozza http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz...lly-Hagan.html , Miss Hagen accusing http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz...tor-Jay-Z.html hit-maker Rita Ora of having an affair with hit-maker and Ms Ora’s mentor Jay-Z, Miss Hagen being accused http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage...hore-jibe.html of being an wh*re by Miss Ora and Charlotte-Letitia Crosby being banned http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz...k-driving.html from the road for 18 months and paying £350 in fines after drink driving.

My opinion on the show, credit where credit is due Geordie Shore is certainly a more entertaining shore than most with this bunch, however, no shore in the world can beat Westward Ho! and I reckon Electric Sandwiches http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QYybB8-laA would second that.

People from all around the world, comments are enabled so feel free to leave 1, and BTW if you are reading this Richie Branson the show is called “Geordie Shore” not “Gordy Shore” what ever your Party Hard song may say http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZfary9WLa8 in the lyrics.

It’s is G-g-g-g-g-geordie hard not G-g-g-g-g-gordy hard OK?!
