Monday nights have a new queen bee. Move aside lame "Samantha Who." Yes, "Gossip Girl" is back (at least on the CW -- CTV what are you playing at hoarding episodes for later). A gargantuan THANK YOU to the TV gods for hauling the striking writers back to their computers just in time for us to reconvene & observe how season 1 of this deliciously saucy show wraps up. Ah, how I am devouring the final 5 episodes!
This program is a tantalizing recipe for success:
~ take the most exciting metropolis on the planet...New York City
~ add in the most visually gorgeous rich bitches and hot trust-fund blokes
~ drop in a working-class brother-sister combo from the other side of the tracks
~ mix-in designer fashions to die for, and the hippest haunts in the Big Apple
and you have yourself one juicy series chock a block full of betrayal, angst and lust.
The series is already well-known amongst teens as it is based on a series of young adult fiction written by Cecily von Ziegesar, but the CW with the help of OC head honcho, Josh Schwartz have crafted a television series that is smartly written and extremely entertaining to watch -- even if you're older than 18. The actors are all stunningly beautiful but hey, don't we want our rich society debs to be everything that we want to be? Hot, rich -- but of course! They're also leading very indulgent, messed up lives -- very troubled eye-candy that keeps on delivering.
"Gossip Girl" with its impeccable pedigree is just waiting for your invitation Monday nights. Dial her up on the CW and get hooked. Guilty pleasures were never so much fun!!
Final verdict: I LOVE this program far too much...it's probably not healthy how much I adore this series. Serena + Dan forever -- or maybe not!
