I'm gonna take a shot in the dark: a sexy young girl lives in some big city (most likely NY) , has sex every other episode, flirts on and off with some pretty-boy, and has more daily drama than any real human being could bare. That about right?
Not to rain on your parade, but there is no originality on TV.

I like this show a lot, too. I used to watch The O.C. and the guy who made that makes this show. Personally, I feel like The O.C. especially the first two seasons was better. Gossip Girl lacks that witty humor that The O.C. had, but I'm looking foward to more Gossip Girl.

Yep thats what I think aswell.

Serena = Marissa?
Blair = (Season 1) Summer?
Dan = Seth?
Nate = Ryan?
Lily = Julie Cooper?
Ruthus = Sandy?

Oh as much as I like Gossip Girl, Josh Schwartz does not have a sense of creativity.

TripOpt55
15-04-08, 01:21
I see the Marissa/Serena parallel, maybe the Summer/Blair and Seth/Dan. Nate is probably a more likeable Luke maybe, not Ryan (just because Ryan was more of an outsider). I had a crush on Mischa/Marissa (still do) and one on Blake/Serena now too, but never really thought they looked that much alike, but they do a bit in those pictures. As far Josh Schwartz goes these shows are similar, but I think unique enough. I think he is involved with that show Chuck too. That certainly is a bit different.

Yes, I agree that he is not very creative. But this show is 'based' on a book (or it's supposed to be), so he did not create the characters. :)

Yea he didn't make the characters

But I wouldve preferred it of Schwartz actually made an effort to cast unique looking actors/actresses. I think the whole Serena/Blair vs. Marissa/Summer thing is too much, and apparently according to fans of the books, Blair is supposed to have blue eyes and a short bob hair cut.

Well it is a good show.

Hmmm... I think Gossip Girl is a decent show, but my friend tells me that it's nothing like the books its based from. (I prefer One Tree Hill. :whi:)

It is based on the book largely. In fact, the author of the books, Cecily Von Ziegesar, has co-written a few of the episodes. Basically it follows the books plotline, just adds a lot more in the middle of it.

Whoa! Seriously? I've asked some of the girls in my class and asked them who all watches it and they're like "Girls and gay guys." I was just like okay...

A lot more guys should watch it, there are a lot of 'guy' funny moments.

Yeah, I find it really easy to relate to.

Also, Blair is one of the hottest people in TV history.

Leprechaun2010

I don't mind the dvd cover, it looks like one of the books? I dunno, never read them but I've seen one of the covers.

I don't like that orange promo pic, Blake's head looks badly photoshopped one, Leighton looks smokin there tho.

Leprechaun2010
08-06-08, 16:52
I like the limo one a lot. The gold one is pretty cool, but "Chuck" looks weird.

In the books of Gossip Girl, Chuck is gay... but I hope he is not in the show... it would be awkward if he ways, just becaue of the way he acts.

That would be awkward if he was in the show. It wouldn't be the TV Chuck Bass.

Exactly. Lol. I hope Gorgina comes back eventually... like not next season... but eventually.

ECB
09-06-08, 23:04
Oh, I hope she comes back in a third or fourth season and that it ends the episode the same way when she first came back. When she leaves the letter. I already knew who Georgina was from my friends. I thought is was a great way to introduce her. I also have the song on my iPod that's playing in the background. :D

I loved when you find out Serena's big secret. :D

ECB
10-06-08, 05:49
The OC really went downhill after Marissa died. I think that was a mistake, but hey Mischa wanted off...

Leprechaun2010
10-06-08, 19:26
And look where Mischa is now... NOWHERE! Ha. I can understand why she wanted more pay... but she didn't have to pull a Shannen Doherty (she had fights) on us and leave the show.

ECB
10-06-08, 19:34
Is that the reason she left? Also, if she had never left The OC would possibly still be on.

Leprechaun2010
10-06-08, 20:03
Yes thats why she left.

I'm not sure if it would still be on for long. Because the creators and producers said in an interview that they didn't want to drag the show past 6 seasons, they want to move on to other projects. And, the OC DID NOT get cancelled, the creator (Josh Schwartz) chose to end the show and all of the cast felt it was time to move on. So I doubt it would still be on.


GOSSIP GIRL SEASON TWO SPOILERS BELOW:



1. The character of Georgina Sparks (played by Michelle Trachtenberg) may or may not be back. It is not confirmed that she will appear, but creator Josh Schwartz says "everyone is coming back and that it’s going to be like a crazy, wild cast of a million people."

2. Dan and Serena will NOT be dating the majority (if at all) in season two.

3. Chuck and Blair WILL be dating the majority of the season and will be the "couple" of season two.

4. Nate will have a new girl on the premiere, that will be neither Blair nor Serena (Jenny maybe...?).

ECB
10-06-08, 20:35

I think it was a bunch of things. But I know they filmed like 3 endings to season three with Marissa, Sandy, and Julie dying... Also right before the finale aired she had a HUGE fight with the producers... so I guess they just decided to kill her :)

i dont want jenny to leave :(

And I dont think she will leave for awhile.

THESE ARE THE (IN THE WORKS) SEASON TWO SPOILERS

1.The season starts in the Hamptons.
2.One of Bart Bass's companies is the sponsor behind Rufus's band. The band gets a call to go on a rock tour.
3. Bart is trying to make Rufus go on the road so he can get Rufus out of Lily's life.
4. Twenty-four episodes have been ordered.
5. Season two is based in the summer between their junior and senior year in high school.
6. Chuck cancels his and Blair's plans to go to Tuscany, and instead they go to the Hamptons (of course).
7. Serena and Dan go to the Hamptons alone as singles.
8. Nate is going to the Hampton's to confess his love to Serena. Although, Nate is still dating Vanessa.
9. Lily and Bart are vacationing in the Hamptons.
10. Rufus somehow ends up in the Hamptons as well.
11. Nate cheats on Vanessa with Serena
12. Lily sleeps with Rufus... but Bart finds out.
13. Dan is still in love with Serena, but he finds out on GossipGirl.net about her summer fling.
14. GossipGirl.net still does not know about Chuck and Blair (aka Chair).
15. Dan and Vanessa end up dating.
16. Bart files for divorce after finding out about Lily and Rufus.
17. Serena and Nate are officially a couple.
18. Jenny has a crush on Nate (obviously), but doesn't know that Nate and Serena are dating.

Apparently GossipGirl.net needs to catch up on its gossip about the lives of Manhattan's elite.
