Awesome Concept... Poor Execution
6 October 2010 | by StanggSee all my reviews

First off, this seems like an interesting concept for a show. The basic premise of the show is that you go inside the life of a particular type of person (e.g. a homeless person, a rapper, a professional fighter, etc.), and you see how they really live their life.

The biggest problem with "World of Jenks" seems to be the fact that the show is only 30 minutes long. Because the documentaries are so short, I don't feel as if I'm fully delving into the world of the people that Andrew Jenks is filming. You get a few glimpses into their life, but you don't really learn anything earth-shattering about them. If the show were given a full hour slot, I think Andrew would get to go beyond scratching the surface, which is a shame because Andrew seems to have a very like-able personality.

In summary, it's a great concept for a show, but it was meant for a 1 hour slot as opposed to 30 minutes. Maybe MTV could shorten "Jersey Shore" to help "World of Jenks" have the time it needs.
