Let's get right down to business.
I wish I could quote what my dad said about it at breakfast this morning (yes, my parents watch Gossip Girl!) but I digress. To quote Carrie Bradshaw, this show is so over it needs a new word for over. Blair is too mean, Chuck is too affected, Serena is too slutty, Dan is too girly, Nate is too boring. I eat too much, I drink too much, I want too much, too much? Too much is never enough? WRONG.
The only reason I keep watching is to be able to converse (you'd be surprised how often it comes up. Oh wait, no you wouldn't) and to read the Daily Intel. And besides, I didn't read all twelve books for nothing. Unlike the 99% of viewers who haven't read the series, I've earned the right to complain.
Really Michael Vick? REALLY JASON MESNICK? Megan instead of Kari? I'm stumped.
Jazzy from Alabama is looking good. My Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader remains strong. Still rooting for Molly the cutie and Lauren the smartie. Didn't Natalie's departure remind you of Richard's last season? Sad, really.
Chomping on the bit for DeAnna's arrival. Remember when I loved her? Total media monger. My how the times have changed.
One Tree Hill:
FINALLY Brooke has a decent story line for the first time in a long time. You all I know I'm Brooke Davis' biggest fan. She's gorgeous, fun, talented and strong. Everything I strive to be in life. I may also be bias because she's a KKG IRL... But this whole adopting the orphan thing really wasn't flying with me. Why should the hottest character be single? I mean, let's talk about what will happen after the show ends. Who is most likely to still have a career? Sophia Bush. Case in point: have you seen James van der Beek before last night since Dawson's Creek ended? And when was the last time anyone saw Benjamin McKenzie? I didn't think so.
Silly me. Here I thought I was watching a show about Whitney and her fashion career in New York when in reality that plot line has gotten maybe about four minutes of air time. Why should I care about some sleezy male model and the clueless ball-and-chain? Say what you want about Heidi and Spencer; at least they're entertaining. I would think that at the very least, this show would be fun to watch because it is filmed in my city. It is anything but. I never thought I'd say it, but I miss The Hills.
