I was born 1995 in China , so when the original gossip girl released it is the same period of my youth. I have to say the OG had an significant impact of my life until now. Although I call tell the storyline sucks and and the terrible world outlook from the way I see it now!but I totally believed that it's the luxury and peacockish life of Manhattan elites at that time. So when they release they are going to remake a new gotcha girl after a decade ,I knew it it! It must be horrible because they want to show the diverse of the new generation they wanna add more stuff compare with the old one. But it went much further than I thought!! A teacher wanna gossip the student ?? No matter the story are real or not they just sent it at once? I am without the misery of gossip girl you knew it it was the teacher so this setting it sucks! And you know what? As higher class they won't use five minute to show the Louis vuitton bag at the very beginning. You won't see Lily van der Woodson show off her Hermès Berkin !or Harry Winston diamond rings ,right ? Because it is their daily lives they don't need to show off the lifestyle to make you believe they are rich! The new generation won't like it and the original fans won't like it! So it's a trash it wastes my time !!
