Wicked Single. WTF?!

Ok, so this is a totally random post, but I am just watching "Wicked Single" on VH1 for the first time and I. can't. believe. my. eyes. Or my ears. Apparently, according to VH1's website, it's a show about "six Boston locals attempting to navigate adulthood while managing a constant hangover". Is that how one navigates adulthood? I know I'm married now and live in the suburbs but this is not what people my age are doing every night around here. I feel like Phoebe from Friends in the episode where she sees Monica and Chandler getting busy and she screams, "My eyes! MY EYES!!!!!" My eyes hurt. So does my stomach.

In addition to the obnoxious, disgraceful to the city of Boston belligerence, I have a few serious problems with this show...

  • Most of these people do not appear to be from Boston, nor do they actually live in Boston.
  • I grew up 10 minutes from Boston, so I know exactly where they are in these episodes and they're not exactly hotspots for their age. 
  • Some of their accents are TERRIBLE, which from a local, means they are FAKE. This one girl can't seem to decide if she's a valley girl or a Boston girl and it is bad.
  • This show is sloppier than the Jersey Shore cast on a Real World/Road Rules Challenge. Within the first half hour, one girl fell on to a cab, wiped out on the bar floor, and then broke her wrist. Meanwhile, one of the guys was licking girls' faces at the bar. What?!?
  • The girls claim they want to be married by 30, yet they're face planting on cabs at 29.
  • They party in Chelsea. Need I say more?

One of the girls loves Derek Jeter, and as a Boston girl, you would think that would be a problem, but I get it girl. 
I get it. 

I wanted to like this but I just can't. Wicked pathetic. Have you seen it? What do you think?

  1. OOOhhhh my gosh, I haven't seen this show and now I want to/never want to all at the same time. I actually, weirdly enough, saw a job posting on a media website where they wanted a few people to go around to clubs/bars in the Boston area and find basically wrecks to be on a "Jersey Shore-like show for Boston." Guess it was for this show!! I don't know how I feel about this, but even without watching it I totally get what you mean about the fake Boston accents. They are always WAY overdone in movies. They're much more subtle than they make it on TV. Annoying. Also, I died when you said "They party in Chelsea. Need I say more?" haha
