Gossip Girl gets significantly worse this week for many reasons. Gossip Girl has been in a slump since the season started, and I really hope things return to form soon. The story lines continue to be immensely contrived, what with Dan & Serena's very tired/predictable breakup to Chuck "seducing" Blair only to have Lord Marcus walk in.
The whole "turn the candle off" thing was just incredibly ridiculous, and I was just having trouble wrapping my head around this very strange concept. The idea of a blackout in New York City opened up a lot of exciting possibilities but Gossip Girl fell short.
Jenny is becoming her annoying self again, even though she's still better than she was last season, she still bugs me. Does anyone actually care about Nate & Vanessa, I have not seen any chemistry between the two and now they expect me to care about Catherine and this couple? I don't think so. So overall, pretty disappointing. Here's hoping next episode will be better.
