You know you love me,
xoxo Gossip Girl
For the past couple of weeks, on the evenings I feel I need to wind down or the lazy days I feel I want to spend on the sofa watching Netflix (this happens far too often, damn procrastination!) I’ve been re-watching Gossip Girl. Netflix offer all six seasons – hooray for Netflix and just last night I finished Season 6 episode 10. Netflix also offer the cheeky end comments from all the cast and crew of Gossip Girl in the ultimate final and for the first thirty minutes or so, I was so confused because I was like THIS IS NOT HOW GOSSIP GIRL ENDS.
Now, I got into Gossip Girl what feels like a lifetime ago, I bought up to season four on DVD, I crushed on Nate until I realised I was more into Bad Boy Chuck Bass and yeah I wanted to be the IT girl. Serena is my penultimate girl crush and you know what, I actually f**king love Dorota. Sorry but she was the best, am I right?
Gossip Girl had me hooked back when I was fifteen and re-watching it again these past few weeks, I’ve been itching to continue. Of course, yesterday I reached the end and once again I’m sad to say goodbye but it is definitely a show worth binge-watching. Even the boyfriend got semi into it. He’d be waiting for his games to load with his mouth wide open asking questions about why Chuck was being an asshole and occasionally laughing out loud and saying ‘I love Dorota’ – don’t we all babe.
The characters were perfectly executed by the cast. Enormous praise given for Ed Westwick and Leighton Meester on their scandalous, passionate and sexual sensations of portraying Chuck and Blair – the ultimate relationship goals! SWOON.
Literally, this show gave me all the feels of an outsider wanting to get in. Life as an Upper East Side elite seemed like a dream. Of course, now I’m older and wiser I wouldn’t like to live in a world dominated by money. Money was something that just didn’t matter – like come on. Anyone would love to be that well off that they could live comfortably for WELL EVER. But the drama overload and the secrets… too much.
I definitely couldn’t stand a relationship like Blair and Serena’s… How many times can two girls go up against each other, fight and scream at each other… like come on?
I really disliked Vanessa and Georgina Sparkes was the best character in the entire world. Michelle Trachenberg is perfecto. Her days as Buffy’s annoying kid sister is gone and she plays dirty and I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT.
I always forgot that she ended up with Jack Bass and it saddens me that Rufus and Lily never got back together.
The ending to Gossip Girl was perfect but also I don’t know, didn’t sit right with me. I always knew Dan and Serena would be end game (awks for Penn and Blake, hats off to them continuing to work together after their break up) and it was sad that Nate, the only honest guy didn’t end up with anyone at all… but omg Little Henry was adorable and Eleanor and Cyrus – NOT ENOUGH!
Overall, Gossip Girl is my ultimate teenage show, one that I will not stop returning to, again and again. Even if Netflix keeps threatening to take it off. I rushed the last three episodes last night because it kept saying ‘this show is available until the 15th Feb’ but now it’s saying it’s available until March. WHAT IS IT NETFLIX? WHAT DO YOU WANT.
Enough of my evening rambles,
you know you love me (or not…)
