Here's Jennifer Lawrence's Favorite TV Show

Posted by Wm.™ Steven Humphrey on Wed, Jan 29, 2014 at 10:14 AM

You trust Jennifer Lawrence, right? (What's not to trust?) So when she says she has a favorite British TV show, it's time to prick up your ears and pay heed. So what exactly IS this Jennifer Lawrence-approved show? From ET:

The American Hustle starlet revealed during an interview with The Sun that she thinks the British series The Only Way Is Essex, also known as TOWIE, is "ridiculously amazing."

"You guys have your own version of Jersey Shore which is so ridiculously amazing I can't even begin," the 23-year-old told the newspaper about the ITV2 program. "It's like another world in Essex."

For those of you who might be unfamiliar with TOWIE, it follows a group of friends in the town of Essex and features lots of love triangles, plenty of hair extensions and tanning salons—a combination of The Hills and Jersey Shore.

Mmmm... I think I'd call it a combination of Jersey Shore and Downton Abbey... but I wouldn't dare nitpick Jennifer's choice, because it does look pretty goddamn amazing. Check out these "best of" clips from series nine of TOWIE—and commit to memory some of the choice phrases, such as "You're always trying to dick my sister out." Language NSFW, so headphones UP!
