  • My new old favourite show!!! Ever watched "The O.C." or "One Tree Hill"? Still this show is newer, better, richer and funnier. A good show with a lot of potential!!!!

    It truly is a typical teenie-show and it is as shallow as it can be, but it is positivly shallow. You still can't switch your brain off.
    Out of the sky glamourgirl Serena van der Woodsen returns from boarding school. Not a minute passes and whole Manhattan knows she's back. Thanks to Gossip Girl(V.O. by Kristen Bell) for doing her job and informing everyone including Serena's BFF Blair Waldorf, the new queen of the private school, who has a hard time forgiving Serena that she left without saying a word about her sudden departure. Also Blair's boyfriend Nate Arhibald and the school's playboy Chuck Bass (played terrific by Ed Westwick) are surprised that she returned. Not everyone is happy that Serena returned, but Gossip Girl surely is, because a lot of new gossip is coming up.
    And there is a whole Family who never had to do anything with the characters mentionned above - the Humphrey's. Consisting of father Rufus, daughter Jenny and son Dan, who later is going to become Serena's boyfriend for the whole season. It turns out that Dan's dad had a relationship with Serena's mother and that they are still in love with each other.
    After a great start, the first season of gossip girl loses a lot of its good humor and its well-elaborated plot and gets very onesided. Dan and Serena, then nothing, then the other characters. Not as exciting as it could be!!! The idea, the show and the screenwriting have a lot more potential than the first season shows and the season finale is the most disappointing episode in the whole season. Still this show is worth watching it.
    Still I will continue watching. What there is to see from season two up to now looks a lot better, a lot more dirty and provoking and a lot more original! This Show was not at its best YET...
  • Based on the popular book series of the same name, this drama gives viewers a peek into the world of privileged teenagers on an elite private school in New York City.

    When I first heard about this series being aired on television I was curious how good it would be. Its based off of a series of books with the same title. Even though I never read the books I was very curious about the series, so I started to watch it weekly and I like it a lot. I been pretty much watching almost all the episodes. I hear the series is coming back. I plan on going to the website of the network airing it and check it out after so long. I can't wait until the new season come on television and sees what happens next.
  • We follow the lives of the fabulous upper east siders in New York city. In an elite private school, we meet a group of privileged teens (Serena, Blair, Nate, Chuck) who faces difficult problems in their glamorous lives.

    This show keeps you desiring for more, and it's wildy entertaining. There's the excitement and drama that keeps us wondering what will happen next to these glamorous teenagers that faces scandalous rumors and gossip. Although it is very similar to 'The O.C.' and 'One Tree Hill', this show brings something diffrerent, its plot is very interesting, and just the characters alone, make you want to watch the series. Not to mention the fabulous and stylish clothing the characters wear, it's a real trendsetter. It makes us grow curious about the lives of these teens. The series shows that if you feel that your life couldn't get any worse, there is always something that turns your life around, and even though you're rich, popular, and ranked the highest in the social status, it might just take a little gossip to bring you down.
  • It is a drama based on a series of books which includes the easterners and their problimatic lives!! How their lives revolves around being rich and popular and how that is not always what makes us happy!

    It shows how life turns around and how people change.
    the show also shows how money and popularity alone don't bring happiness!! the aspects of a caring family around you is cery common thing in the USA and the mixed lives back in high school, even for the parents! Ofcourse what made me excited even more to watch the series and continue it was the presence of really hot people such as Dan Humphrey and Nate Archobolt!! I mean for heaven's sake where do these people come from!! DAYUM!!! hehe
    Also, the actions of the mean girls such as Blair and how she uses everything to her advantage is just amazing!! Oh and the freindship that Serena has with Balair is also amazing as Blair was there for Serens in spite of what she did and Serena was there for Blair in spite of everything especially when Blair's social status was ruined and was about to leave and Serena stopped her!! I guess that tells you that facing the problem is the best so far!! I've always beleived that!

  • Counting down the days for the next season premiere!

    It is definitely entertaining, almost and kind of real like, absolutely funny, freaking mind blowing crazy, completely surprising, rolling on the floor laughing hilarious, adrenaline rushing risky, carefully secretive and eye catching attractive, oh my God so, so ,so darn H-O-T-T hott!, eye brow raising mysterious and suspicious, obsessively unexpected, really, really awesome, totally addictive, creative and informative, greatly done, amazingly directed, performed and [oh that motha chucka ED] oh so perfectly casted, weirdly identifying with normal teenage life problems and well really, no need for 100 words,... I can sum it down to three: I LOVE IT!!!

    XOXO B ♥
  • Gossip Girl is the show your parents don't want you to watch, but you do anyway.

    Although most viewers won't be able to relate to the glitzy and glamorous lives the teens on this show lead, they will be entertained nonetheless. Gossip Girl is set in the elite Upper East Side region of New York City, which is a nice change from the seaside locations of former teen dramas 90210 and the OC. The show explores hot button issues such as drug abuse and homosexuality, but it never delves too deep. Its main focuses are primarily social cliques and the price of popularity, so expect to sit through many catfights. If drama is not your thing, the fashion on this show is amazing. What I would give to raid Serena's or Blair's closet!
  • Full of drama and scandal, and I like it.

    When I first heard of Gossip Girl, I said to myself, "oh great, another stupid show where everyone sleeps each other." Though that may have happened in the show, it's more than just that I learned when I actually watched it. I love Gossip Girl not only for all the drama that takes place in their lives, which we can relate to, but because the character's are so alive. You love some of them, and you hate some of them, you care about most of them, it really draws you into the series. It also makes you say "OMG" frequently. I would have never seen myself watching a show called Gossip Girl. The good thing about this show is that in my opinion, it draws all audiences, of all ages, boy or girl. But that is just how I feel. Make things simple, this show is great, regardless of what people say.
  • This show is really really amazing.

    Once I watched it, I was hooked. It gets soo many awesome reviews, and it really deserves it. The great acting skills of Blake are unforgettable. The drama, love, all the mishaps, ups and downs are believeable. This show doesn't seem like one of those off the wall fake things, you can believe it. I would reccomend it to anybody... anybody. It's not one of those shows that I would die for, but it is one of those shows that I'd watch over and over and over and over, because its simply the best of its time. Really awesome show. We all know it.
  • using only adjectives:Captivating, atractive, refreshing, sensational, intense, addictive, hip, salvational(my word means worthy of salvation)

    This show has everything anyone could want in a drama. It has great fashion, romance, setting, hot characters, and of course a great story line. each episode is extremly captivating and will leave you salivating for more everytime.( FYI this show is based off of It's best selling book series)this show apeals to teenagers and young adults in majority. However, even my mother is in love with this show(mid 40's)This show is one of my personal favorites, although I was skeptical at first because of its cheesy comercials. This show is deffinatly not your average drama, and is your time so give it a try! I promise you will be hooked:)
  • A hit show based off a hit book, what could be better?

    A show about rich upper-west side prep school kids who look and act a LOT older than they should be. Everytime I watch and someone is like "I'm only 16" I can't believe it. Well for one the actors are much older but the storylines make them seem in their twenties. I went to a private school but that was definitely not how I spent my time. The show is very entertaining and the cast is nice to look at. The cast has also spiked a lot of controversy out of the show when it comes to their personal lives and dating history. As the show is coming to its second season I hope it does as well or better as the first did. It is the CW's main show on the air, I would hate to see another great show cancelled.
  • i started watching gossip girl the day it started i watched it with my friend and was hooked from then on out! its a great show that keeps you on edge every time! i cant wait for it to start again!!

    Gossip girl is a great series of RUMOR , love and friendship its a show that once you see it you see it you cant stop bc you have to find out the twist next time!! B-Blair and S-Serina are best friends that have secrets that will brake their friendship apart and others that will build them closer! When S left last time she did it without any warning and when B found out she was so upset... then come to find that she left to help keep the secret that her and nat had slept together a secret well when that was unbailed it was a battle between the two until all solved and now they are stronger then ever having to try to cover up S's biggest secret ever!! well off to the positive Dan and S are by far the cutest couple on the show they are cute and fun and best friends. S's lil brother is now out in the open about him being gay and S's lil secret is tearing her and Dan apart.... also now that Jenny is the good girl again we dont have to worry about her and B getting into it.. Also it sucks that S's mom and Dan's dad aren't together bc until really recently I couldn't stand Chuck but when S received the letter from her long lost partner in crime things with chuck started to get a lil closer and more personal for the help of her! well when the episodes start again they will open with a twist and then when it ends again it will leave you on the edge of the cliff......thats gossip girl for you

  • Unexpectedly awesome

    So, I'm sitting at home a month ago, flipping through the channels. I come across the pilot for Gossip Girl. I had heard about the show so I decided to see what it was about. I figured I'd watch for a little while then go back to channel surfing. What I did instead was watch the whole episode and rush to download the entire season once the episode was over. This show is awesome. Yeah, it's essentially a teen soap opera filled with rich, spoiled, over dramatic people. But there is something about the show that makes it ok to have all those things. On the outside you get all those things. But if you actually watch the show and follow the plotlines and relationships, it is a (for lack of a better word) deep show.

    To me the best parts of the show are the relationships. Dan and Serena, Chuck and Blair, Nate and Blair, Nate and Chuck, Serena and Blair, and my favorite Rufus and Lilly. For people who like character and relationship driven shows, Gossip Girl is something you will like.

    So, if you haven't checked this show out DO IT. It's awesome and offers more than just rich, spoiled New Yorkers
  • my new guilty pleasure :)

    i heard about gossip girl from a friend and started watching it when i heard my favorite actress kristen bell would be providing the narration, and a few episodes in i was addicted! unlike most shows in its genre, it doesn't take itself too seriously. the plot revolves mostly around the rumors and scandal of a group of rich young socialites on the upper east side of new york. the best characters on the show are blair waldorf, who is always mean and fun to watch but is also relatable, and womanizer chuck bass, who seems to have a soft side underneath it all :), played by charasmatic actors leighton meester and ed westwick who stand out alongside an otherwise mediocre cast. plus the amazing narration done by the always fabulous kristen bell gives the show something special and different. it is a great show and although it can be a bit cheesey and over the top, that is one of the things i love most about it and it gives me an enjoyable hour.
  • Amazing, just amazing, keeps on getting better each episode! I advise people to watch it if you don't well.....

    Like i said it's amazing, keeps on getting better each episode. Gossip Girls has so many fans and it's not for no reason! It's so interesting, it's fabulous, glamorous, it's indescribable, i think your getting the point. It's not just for girls don't think like that, it's also for boys my brother watches it as well! I told him to watch it! I also got my sister to watch it, my friends as well. It's not a waste of time i promise you that lol i have good taste in tv shows. I can't wait for season two, it's the most thing I'm excited about and I'm not even lying. I'll never hate it!
  • You're nobody until your talked about.

    Welcome to the East Side world where everyone revolves around money,sex,drama,and lies.From the book series to the television screen.Gossip Girl! Thank God they made it into a TV show! There are 2 reasons I watch this show: 1. The fashion! I love the style that they always wear; 2. The drama. I like drama on TV shows and this show is in and out drama. My favorite character would have to be the infamous Blair Waldorf. Yes, she can be a female dog sometimes but I still love her. I think shes really pretty. I like Serena too, though! Everybody hates Chuck but I find him sexy.LOL. and Nate, hes cool I guess. Dan..I dont know what to say about Dan. Hes sweet and all but ehh no. And little Jenny. Shes cool too. But I do NOT like GEORGINA. What the hell kind of name is "Georgina"? It sounds like a dudes name! Well it has "George" in it so whatever. The show is definitely worth watching. OMFG CEXY ;)
  • Wanna be part of the Upper-East Siders' dream? Certainly not, because the definition of "dream" is quite far what u'r about to see...

    Oceans of money, plenty of arrogance, more than plenty of vanity, "star wars", love, sex, parties, false friends, lies, broken hearts, lots of family issues... and "all that money can buy". But why do i have the feeling that i've seen this before? Hmm, yes, "the Bold and The Beautiful"!... (just kidding, Rich is hardly a handsome teenager anymore :D)

    But anyway, i absolutely adore the outfits that the stylist chooses, the actors are not that bad in playing spoiled princesses and princes and the story is nice. I guess the show is worth watching even only because of these things. All else is... "A secret i'll never tell". Just watch and see!
  • Serena van der Woodsen returns after a mysterious absence, disturbing the silence that has covered the Upper East Side for too long.

    One of the best shows I've watched. Every episode doesn't disappoint. A lot of people would say that the show is superficial and that all the characters care about is partying and drinking and stuff. But I for one, know that we can learn a lot of stuff from this show, even if we don't mean to. The Blair and Jenny feud teaches us about not craving for power, because we'll only get hurt in the end. The whole Chuck-Blair-Nate-Serena thing is a perfect example of friendship, no matter how they f-ed things up, true friends are forever. Lol, that was real cheesy. But yeah, Gossip Girl is a great show and I love every minute of it.
  • No secret's are hidden from GG, and more drama is taken from the Upper East Side.

    This show is classified by many as either tacky or the same as many other teen shows. Well, it isn't. You don't have to take my word for it, because you don't have to like it. The point is I watch this show because while my sister read and told me everything in the book series, and while people expects certain things from it the show somehow doesn't catch you by surprise, but gives you what you secretly want. Many people hated the SereDan prefect couple so they broke them up, in the stupidest way but nonetheless. Chuck and Blair was not liked by everyone so they didn't get together, plus they're transforming characters that maybe someday will hookup again. Nobody likes Jenny, so she's being shadowed for now, just wait when she gets together with Nate. It'll be funny to see those whole like them together but don't like Jenny. Still this shows deliver, it's first season was unpredictably predictable. Some predictable things like Seredan breaking up, Blair backstabbing everyone, Blair doing it with Chuck and then with Nate. Also some unpredictable things, like Vanate, Eric being gay and Serena killing someone. They have to catch the fish first, then they eat it. So they're delivering what people want, they have enough time to twist it up and down, and I'll be there watching.
  • Good, but could of been a lot better, especially with the Rufus/Lily story line and Dan, in my opinion, overreacted.

    Since the pilot episode I have enjoyed watching this show, it felt original and fresh and more promising then the popular but rather shallow GG books. This episode of course had its highlights, Blair and Chuck pairing up together for the demise of Georgina Sparks and ultimately then realizing that they want to be together; for real this time, but then for Chuck to only go back to his old ways because his father scared him with the speech about commitment, to me was a very good twist because he's Chuck Bass, and for his character to change so drastically in such a short amount of time is not only unrealistic but a betrayal to the fans who have seen his character so carefully sculpted from the pilot episode.

    Also Blair coming along and bringing Georgina down in pure 'Blair Waldorf fashion' made me happy, however I think the writers could of dragged it out more, they built up Georgina's character so much, yet disposed of her very quickly.

    I did not, however like the "closure" of Rufus and Lily, there was no heartbreak, no sadness and Rufus, who spent most of this season pining for her, only seemed too happy to let her marry Bart.

    Serena and Dan annoyed me in this episode, Dan overreacted and I felt like it was just an excuse for the writer to tear all the couples apart to start with a new slate in season two.
  • This show puts daily soaps to shame.

    This show was recommended by my friend who just loves watching shows (he is the tv genius, not me). And I watched this and god! was it amazing. It is like you don't need flashy CGI and million dollar actors to make a good show. All you need is a gritty story that can last long and make you wet your pants because you can't wait til next week.

    This show has not been spoiled at all, even by the writers strike. The story was always there and the formula was pitch perfect. The actors and actresses definitely played well in this whether they were playing a romantic scene or a hand-me-a-tissue scene. And also, may I just say the people in the show were absolutely gorgeous!

    This show may start off as a guilty pleasure but in no time, you will be standing on top of a building screaming your undying love out to america that you watch gossip girl.
  • Love, Betrayal, High Society, Scandal, Power, Ruthlessness........Ahhh

    I just recently got into this show and I love it. Theres something about drama in New York City that I just love! I think its so great that the entire show is filmed in New York City, this leaves no room for plot mishaps and goofs. But the best thing about the show to me is Gossip Girl itself. I love how that one blog is so powerful in their little world, and holds so much extremely personal knowledge about the characters lives, and what they do and what they don't do behind closed doors.

    XO XO Gossip Girl
  • This series is based on the series of books by Cecily von Ziegesar. Although the TV series differs greatly from the books it is still a very intriguing show. This show gives insight to the lives of the elite in the upper east side of New York.

    This show is absolutely fantastic. I was doubtful at first because usually movies and shows based on books aren't as good as the books they are based on. However, with this show although it differs quite significantly from the books I still find that it is a very good show and shows great potential for next season.
    I also love the idea of the gossip girl. It's amusing to see how obsessed they are with the site. It is a great reflection of how society actually is. The representation of the rich kids is great. I love how they do whatever they want because even if they get in trouble mommy and daddy can always bail them out. However, in this show they actually learn to have some morals (or at least most of them do)
  • Not as good as the OC...but definately worth watch...A very hot new show

    I've read some degrading comments on this programme and am not surprised, just disappointed at people's cynicism. Yes it's simple and it's like The OC in Manhattan but who cares?! The OC, which i think is the best tvs eries ever made..was well acted, funny, sad and kept me hooked right to the last episode in Season 4. I can't say whether Gossip Girl will match that but so far I've been impressed, the acting is solid and the girls are hot so that's a definite plus. You've also got the underdog loner who is easy to like and relate to and the plot simmers along nicely mixing humour, drama and lavish locations which in all honesty are pretty cool. And you do care about the characters which sets it apart from many other TV programmes. I don't think it will ever match the roller-coaster ride that The OC provided but as that's gone I'm perfectly content with Josh Schwartz's new effort.
  • MUCH better than i thought it would be

    I have to admit that at first i thought that Gossip Girl wouldn't interest me. I never read the book and i usually don't really care for these High School Shows, especially not when all the Characters are rich as hell. But i decided to give the show a shot, since everybody was praising it so much etc. Well, the majority isn't right all the time, but in this case they were. I can't really empathize with the characters on GG, but that doesn't matter. It is very entertaining and if you can't love the characters you at least love to hate them!
  • a mix of biatches,(i cant say the real word) the hot guys, hippest fashions, and biggest scandals wrapped in one and you get Gossip Girl

    This show is totally amazing. I love everything about it. The loves stories are unbelievable. At first I admit I was a little skeptical cause I thought it was gonna be a rip off O.C which it is not. Serena pretty and free spirited and blair goregous and **** Nate sexy and undecided a nd CHUCK the total bad boy. Then we have our autsiders Dan and jenny the brookyln kids going to this big rich private schooll where the only thing these kids have to worry about is if they have the american express. Great ACTORS, Great PLOTS, and Great EVERYHTING. this show is exciting and it keeps you on your toes. Its not as O.Cey because with this show you wont have to cry every other episode. Its good you should watch
  • Gossip Girl, is a tv series based on Cecily von Ziegesar books, and tells us a story about a group of young millionaires through the eyes of gossip girl, a bloger who knows every that happens in their lifes, and loves every scandal!

    Manhattan... School full of teenage rich kids with very little to do so they explore everything NY has to give them. This is the perfect environment to create intrigue, comments and rumours.
    Gossip girl, seemed to me, like a very futil series at first but then I got addicted to it! It's not bad at all! It's all about rich people..it's so much more then that! you just have to know everything about Serena and Blair's rivalry,secrets, their loves and affairs, friends, enemys, text messages..
    It's pretty addictive and I just can't stop watching it know!
    I totaly recommend people to watch it! I really do like it even though I'm usualy a "soap" kind of person..
