Comming Soon: Jersey Shore, Russian Edition


We kid you not.

According to the NYPost, producers claim their new reality show (tentitivly called Brighton Beach) will be “a cross between the Jersey Shore and Anna Karenina.”

A cross with Anna Karenina?

Unless this means that we can expect to see an orange Bolivian little person throw herself in front of a rush-hour A Train because Count Vronsky didn't like her hair extensions -- then we're not watching.

Have the producers even read Tolstoy?

Crossing Jersey Shore with Anna Karenina is like trying to cross Mein Kampf with Hello Kitty’s Nighttime Storybook Adventures. Then again, people would watch that too.

Mary Mother of God, please please please let this show happen and not be a vicious rumor.

Apparently, it will correct the same kind of false stereotypes about Russian-Americans that Jersey Shore has so excellently dispelled for Italian-Americans.

Oy! What a hoot! There definitely won't be anything remotely concerning Anna Karenina but you'll see the worst of the Sovok and something of the white trash. Can't wait! LOL.

I always thought that Dawson's Creek was Kafkaesque with a little hint of William Faulkner thrown in but was always unsure if the producers had intended it to be that way.

It should be very, very funny. The best way to describe the ex-soviet immigrant style is New Jersey-esk. Makes sense. Nothing to do with Tolstoy of course, but most people wouldn’t know the difference.
