Everybody is talking about Squid Game, the Netflix phenomenon that has become one of the biggest shows on the planet. It's the biggest series launch in the history of Netflix. If you weren't planning on watching it, but now feel pressure to watch it because everyone else at the Jersey Shore is, this is info you need to know. We asked Jersey Shore residents if they were on board with Squid Game, and here's what we found out.

Our survey was not a scientific one. We simply asked Jersey Shore residents if they had watched or plan to watch Squid Game, and we thought the results were pretty interesting, and thought you may want to use the information we found to help you make your own Squid Game decision.

It turns out Jersey Shore residents are pretty much split down the middle, with 54% saying they are, have or plan to watch the Netflix smash, but the spit goes further than that.

Nearly half of the people who watched it said it didn't live up to all the hype, so their reviews weren't that great. If you break it down that way, about 75% of Jersey Shore residents either won't watch it or don't recommend you do.


On the other side, the other half of the area residents who did watch it absolutely love it and rave about it. It seems like if you liked it you loved it, and if you didn't like it, you really didn't like it.

So, when all is said and done, it looks like you really have to decide for yourself if this is for you. I'll tell my experience. I almost didn't make it through the first episode, but I did, and after that, I couldn't stop watching.

I watched the whole thing in less than two days. Is it my favorite show ever. Not by a long shot. But with only 9 episodes, it's worth the watch and a lot less of a commitment than most binge shows.
