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 »

Best from the books, with new stories
6 August 2008 | by onlyatdevonshireSee all my reviews

All of the comments seem to be complaining of too much drama. However, if you have ever read the book series, drama is the selling point. True, the appeal behind Gossip Girl isn't the realistic aspects. Rather the producers' knack for providing excitement in every show (as they proved with The OC).

When I first tuned into the show, I was expecting a book-by-book exact portrayal. I was pleasantly surprised that while each character stayed more or less true to the books, the plot of each episode was different. This kept the fans of the books (like myself) from getting bored with the shows. It kept the show from getting stale, as it would have if they kept all story lines the same.

Drama is what fuels the series, as it is with half of the programs on television today. If it were realistic or didn't take chances, then viewers would have no incentive for watching. With all television today, the more scandalous and provocative a show can be, the more viewers are likely to watch the next week. Especially with the age demographic that Gossip Girl specifically targets.

Gossip Girl represents the books well for old fans, while still intriguing the new audience. And for that, it does it's job well.
