Scotch: The New Beverage of Choice for Underage Drinkers
I finally got around to watching Gossip Girl (GG) on Netflix. I like to marathon-watch series that have ended, so this has consumed a big chunk of my time over the past few weeks. It went 5 full seasons + 10 episodes (also known as "Season 6"). I had a love-hate relationship with GG. During the first season, I was shocked at how much scotch, bubbly, and assorted mixed alcoholic drinks a bunch of freshman and juniors in high school guzzled in front of their parents and in so many upscale establishments around Manhattan. I don't think any of the main characters was of legal drinking age until GG Season 4 or 5, and yet no one EVER got carded by a barkeep (or even reprimanded by any adult for downing an 80 proof beverage in their presence). Did Drew Barrymore teach these adults NOTHING of the dangers of alcohol use by the young and privileged?? I found that disturbing, because it made it seem like teenagers drinking booze was more than just a part of their glamorous Upper East Side (UES) teenage lives it made it seem like it was a normal teen activity. I could go on about the predictable plot twists. Or the absurd amount of coincidences faced by the GG characters. Or the fact that the characters have the WORST timing EVER.. But the fact remains that the show normalizes addictive behavior. All of the characters emerge unscathed. It's a complete fairy tale, and it must be viewed as such. Taken as farce, the show is entertaining primarily because of Blair and Chuck. Nate was solid (through most of the episodes) because he was so deftly played by Chace Crawford. Beyond those 3 and the Waldorf household, though, the rest of the regular cast grated on my last nerve after several episodes. If I were to recommend this series, I'd probably suggest skipping Seasons 3 and 4 altogether. Aside from the locations and the fashion, there was little to entertain during those two seasons. That said, it was a semi-entertaining way to get nothing accomplished for a couple of weeks.moreless
Totally Worth Your Time
It Was Awesome Honestly !! I Have Read Reviews On IMBD, And In My Opinion They're So Irrelevant. The Entire 6 Seasons Are Made Up Of Extremely Entertaining Drama Of The Wealthy In Upper Manhattan. Drama & Rich People Will Never Seem More Interesting . This Is Honestly A Perfectly Put Together Show & I'm A Big Fan . Totally Recommend It. Its Really Worth Your Time
At my age in 2007, Gossip Girl was the kind of TV show that my mom would never approve of me seeing. So I watched the first season on Netflix a few months ago, and lost curiosity into season 2. A lot of drama, and nothing too appealing for my taste in television shows. I tried a couple other shows, but was somehow drawn back to Gossip Girl, being slightly curious for some answers. I finished season 2 and fell in love with Chuck and Blair, which I've noticed I'm not the only one. After that, it was all-nighters and endless hours with my laptop rather than my boyfriend (luckily he's very understanding). Although it was Chuck and Blair's passion that sparked my interest for good, so did everything else. The lies, jealousy, heartbreak, love affairs, and scheming were too good to forget. I have one season left that I plan on finishing in the next day or 2. If I hadn't tried it again, I would have missed out.moreless
SUPERB! I love Blair & Chuck xxx Dan & Serena
I was sooo hooked up with these episodes especially the last two seasons that I cannot believe I will not see these guys again! I just love Blair Waldorf attitude and powerful Chuck! & sexy Serena .... And the intriguing Dan! Not to mention Nate and Lily & Rufus .... Will miss you all ... Or is there a sequel coming up?? Or maybe a movie?? ;)
Couldn 't resist watching this tv show and found this really great! It deserves to be rated as one of the most amazing serials.. Dan Humphrey is my favorite cool one!!!! Every girl would wanna drool behind this handsome guy. LOL !! The story of gossip girl is more likely of an everyday happening of teens, endless gossips , pointless jealousy , humiliating one another, criticizing and more fun!!!!
I would never stop watching gossip girl. Awesommmeeeee!
best show ever
I found out about this show and thought I might try it .so I watched it I didn't understand it a first but its the best best best best thing that I have ever watched in my entire life:-) :-) :-) :-) also my fave characters are Blair Waldorf she is so funny and always wants to be queen of what ever school she is in. but she has a rough has had a very complicated and bad background but after returning back to Manhattan is always there for her best friend Blair when she is in trouble and all of her family and friends:-) and chuck bass who has a rough side and a very soft side with people he loves .he is always losing Blair and getting back with an amazing TV show
Xoxoxo gossip girl
THE SHOW DOES HAVE MEANING!
Gossip Girl , I don't mean to sound clich, but it is my favorite show in the entire world.
The show teaches teens that by doing what you love you will find where you belong. Just like Dan Humphrey. Dan is the ultimate outsider. He's from Brooklyn so he doesn't fit in with the kids he goes to school with. But, Dan and I quote writes himself into the group of elite/popular students.
This show also teaches you that, everybody can surprise you. In the show nobody guessed that the person who Gossip Girl is, could be Gossip Girl . (I say this so that if you are going to watch/ are watching the show I don't spoil it for you).
So after reading my little letter, I hope that people who thought Gossip Girl was clich don't think that anymore!
You know you love Gossip Girl ,
