Goofs

Throughout the series, it's clear that the actors/actresses portraying teenagers are actually in their 20s+. This is done as to not interfere with the schooling of real teenagers and to give the general viewing audience who are teenagers themselves someone they can look up to. See more »

Gossip Girl: Speak of the devil and he doth appear - wearing his trademark scarf. Careful, B, hell hath no fury like a Chuck Bass scorned.

Confused by Negative Comments...
26 March 2013 | by btaylor-643-231837See all my reviews

In reading the reviews already posted on the show, I'm a genuinely confused by how strongly negative so many of them are, and I'm wondering what kind of shows those people watch... Gossip Girl is a helluva lot better than almost any other show I've ever seen. No plot? People *die,* and fall in love, and run away... and come to grips with major issues people of "this" generation actually have to deal with: sex, eating disorders, drugs, drinking, bullying, cyberspace, parents acting like teenagers and teenagers acting like adults, class issues...

I found Gossip Girl to be as enchanting and engaging as the Harry Potter series; It's a little like a fairy tale, only slightly more relevant. As I understand it, audiences were initially underwhelmed and unimpressed by Gossip Girl, until teenagers who were actually living that lifestyle (on the Upper East Side) started validating and defending it. As a graduate from one of the most selective schools in the country (boarding, college, or otherwise), I *know* this lifestyle, through friends more than personal experience, but it's really refreshing to see likable characters dealing with issues I see my peers experiencing.

The whole show is incredibly romantic, with gorgeous shots, color-coordinated sets and costuming, hair/makeup, not to mention the drama and romance of the actual content (characters/plot). I also really appreciated the effort put into staying ahead of fashion trends and music (the music was *awesome* in this show). I also love that everything was shot on location, too many shows/movies take place in New York but are shot in LA... it definitely makes a difference.

Someone said Gossip Girl could have worked as a movie; I have no idea what they were thinking. It would have made a terrible movie! It's meant to go on... You're supposed to fall in love with the characters and watch them grow up and eventually find happiness and success despite all kind of personal, never-ending strife. That's how life works...

Back to the people who wrote super negative reviews... What shows are you watching?? Crime or detective shows- horribly unrealistic and with no coherent plot or character development from episode to episode? Reality TV? Cartoons? What are you comparing this show to? (For reference, I loved Dollhouse, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Downton Abbey, New Girl, House... diverse, intelligently written and well-produced.)
