    yeah, thats the thing though. you can't really have a good feel for serena or blair with out reading the books. or at least waiting until they get explained more.

    I'm not sure, they both seem ok. But I'll have to see a few more episodes to judge appropriately.

    I think the point of the show is use the books as a basic framework rather than copying them directly. I'm guessing the books will be rendered a little pointless seeing as the characters will probably take different routes.

    i know its just a base. but they are still using the descriptions of the charaters. that is the thing they are keeping the same. they change little things but the characters are the things that are mostly staying the same. so that is why it would help to read the books. cause i don't know when they will really go into depth about the characters.

    blair is the obvious choice. i mean shes knows what she wants and she gets it. shes smart and ambitious. i mean she has had to overcome a lot of obstacles. when serena wants something she gets it handed to her. and lets not forget that in book 3 she almost sleep with flow(?) and then she like blew him off

    yeah exactly. i love blair because when she wants something she sticks with it.
    serena just gives up or moves on half way through. like in book 6 it said serena wanted real love like nate and blair, but when she was with nate in book 8 she just ignored him. then she realized she wanted him at the end.
    blair isn't fickle in her choices. she doesn't just blow something off in the middle. she finishes what she starts.

    I've seen the Pilot and I still don't know who I like more. Although seemed nicer, I just need to watch a few more eps then I'll decide.

    Also, how many books are there?

    i think im the only one who like Serena. i find her much better and i like her charecter too. Blair looks better than serena but Serena is clearly the better actress.

    I like Serena also.
    Blair is just too uptight, insecure, devious, and just a straight up b*tch.

    I'm puttning my vote on Serena... It feels like she wants to change, make up for her mistakes. I see Blair as a b**ch, but give me a few more episodes and I can make a definitiv decision!!!

    I've only red the first book, but I agree, I think the books are only a base for the show, I hope they make their own twist on it... The bad thing with making a show based on a book is the whole... is the book better than the show or the show better than the book, but I think you have to make a difference between the medias, books are books and it all depends on the depth of you imagination, movies or tv are a more obvious form, and I don't think it's fair to either one to compare them to eachother!!!

    But I liked the book

    I liked the pilot!!

    Let's see how things develop!!

    Personally, I've read only a couple of the books, but from what I have read and from the pilot I like Sabrina a hell of a lot better. Blair is annoying and whineswhen she doesn't get her way, and especially in the tv seriesNate is obviously in love with Sabrina. Hewould havefinally slept with Blair,but he leaves her to see Sabrina.

    Serena for sure, i havent read the books and i probably won't but basicly there is so many reasons why i like serena much more 1: she goes with the flow, not trying to be "oh look at me im best at everything" 2: sure she might have had sex with nate, but so clearly pointed out that it was a misstake and that she dident want to hurt blair since it was her friend and so on 3: blair has such a big ego that i hate "what is SHE doing here?, she cant be around me im best!"

    but then again, its probably many people just like blair who watch these kinds of serie so i guess why people like her
