“Gym, pale, laundry” is probably not a catchphrase on the Irish version of Jersey Shore, but I like the sound of it anyway. That’s right, there’s an Irish version of Jersey Shore! It’s called (confusingly) Tallafornia, and it’s about a group of hard-partying West Dubliners.
There are all the same devices as JS – hot tubs, muscled-out bros, girls taking shots in bikinis, plus some delightful Irish accents. The show premiered in the UK on Sunday and is already a huge hit. I’d say I hope it comes on over to the States, but then I’d have to recap it, and I can only handle so much trash in a given week.
