Gossip Girl > Gossip Girl 100th Episode Review: OM-GG! > Comments Page 2
For a show to get a 5pt rating it would have to have NO mistakes. I thought 4/5 was generous, considering how stupid Blair is and how irritating she has become.
WTF! sriously what is going on i have just been crying my eyes out since the start of the wedding this really cnt be happing WTF1 is all i can say and georgina is GG since when?
Although I absolutely love TVFanatic and appreciate all the effort the team is putting into it, I will complain about one thing.
I've been reading your reviews for the last two years now, and recently I've been getting the feeling you don't give the show the chance it deserves. After all GG has never received a TVF 5 star rating. TVD on the other hand rarely ever gets anything below 4 and a half stars. This might be an adequate rating for a show that is superior to any other show, however GG has produced excellent episodes, some of which top TVD.
Just to be clear: I, too, think that GG's season 5 has not been the best season so far, and I love TVD! Still, I feel like you are being a bit picky on shows like GG and extremely generous with shows like TVD. I can honestly not think of anything negative in this episode, and apart from people not turning their cell phones off during a wedding, neither do you, Steve Marsi, according to your review!
I think the writers prefer Blair and Dan to be the headliners. These two are the best actors in the pack and relying on their skill keeps the show afloat. My theory before watching this ep was that Blair would run away from both Louis and Chuck and go straight to Dan. I wasn't surprised at all he was in the car waiting for her. I am so glad this is the end of Louis. So sick of his accent that teeters between French and British but honestly I respect him more for telling Blair off. Come on! Is he really a bad guy for that? In the real world he gets a high five.
First of all, come on whats there to complain about seriously, just acept that its a TV show we all love since we watch it. If we wanna change it, start working as a writer for the show :P
I do belive that the "Chair" fanatics will have their treat, dont worry the producers have been walking arround it as it was a hot potato. She will just seek Dans friendship since she knows she can trust him in difficult times.
She will probably overcome her fear of god in the last episode, even though I do belive that the best thing would be a Dair with a bit more of the old Blair thing but thats my thoughs, live well and prosperious :)
i have not been on this website for a while, but im glas to be back :)
chuck and blair, amazing chemistry. blair needs to quit saying they cant be together because they can! they make the show, and i loved the twist with prince louis..... whata bitch. but the sceneat the wedding where the guy asks if anyone objected to the marriage and the look between chuck and blair was so powerful i cried. it was very beautiful. georgina was also amazing like always
chuck and blair till the end
@ Ace: I'm sorry, the 1000 character limitation that TV Fanatic now has prevented me of thinking that I should clarify the following: during my post on this site I have always said that this show moves in the realm of heightened reality and it is ridiculous to expect that real life logic and morals be applied to this show. Now that being said, I expect "heightened reality". Meaning that even though I don't expect EVERYTHING to be realistic, I do expect some realism or logic used in certain situations. Lately the show lacks this aspect in most of its situations, and that bugs me, because it didn't used to be this way.
This show has never really been about realism; if it was, Blair and Chuck would never have been together on-and-off for this long in the first place. Well, let me take that back, if Blair was truly the independent all-woman-empowered character that she was, this whole Chuck drama would not even be a blip on her radar. I mean, seriously, as far as realism is concerned, you'd have to be the biggest emotionally-damaged masochist-doormat to continually believe Chuck is a viable option. And I'm not saying that Blair was completely innocent either as she's done her share to contribute to the toxic relationship that is Chair.
Only in this heightened dramatized novella can that relationship last.
It's best to just have that suspension of disbelief.
I have problems with this episode that are not even of the shipping kind. Georgina as GG? Logistically impossible in some instances, like when she was sent to boot camp that later turned bible camp, how could she report from there? Or from Belarus for that matter? She's awesome but this only makes sense if she is now turning into GG, or has a collaborator. Blair's hair awful, bridesmaids dresses awful, I don't care if they were Vera Wang originals. Unrealistic the phones sounding off in the middle of the wedding. Unrealistic a final fitting outside the house or church on the wedding day. More unrealistic than anything, they marrying in NYC instead of Monaco, but I don't even want to get into that too much, production reasons after all can be used to justify this one. Where on earth was Roman? Louis in the appartment on the wedding day, risking to break the rule that the groom cannot see the bride before the wedding?
@Kimmie i think that's the million dollar question. who send in that video? my guess is dan which i might be impossible but he has the most to gain.
i actually agree with everyone who says blair is now the annoying character.i know that she's like the center of the story but her being the center of every episode is sickening.it's all about her and the other characters are just background characters that has nothing else. and i'm not surprised that this season's ratings are low.i remember last season the highest rated episode was the townie when the story was not about blair.don't hate just saying that they at least focus on something else that's why i'm kinda excited for this lola storyline to progress because its something new..
the episode would have been better if jenny humphrey was invited and was the one who sent the blast to gossip girl.that would have been a classic gg sabotage and a tribute to the core 6 characters of the show..
I fully expect this get alot of backlash, but I really liked the unexpected change in Louis and honestly felt like Blair got her just desserts. Let's not forget that the first time that the two went on a date, Blair treated Louis like dirt because she thought he was a chauffeur. Later on, she sleeps with Chuck while she was meant to be with Louis, and takes him for granted. Then to top it off she humiliates him on his wedding day. I'll admit that Louis was foolish for chasing after Blair in the first place, but the fact that he tried to make things work and Blair threw it all back in his face made me glad that it finally came back to her.
I was never shipping Blouis. Everyone knows that Chair is endgame - and we'll probably be subject to another annoying billion 'will they, won't they' moments before they do - but someone needed to give Blair a reality check and I'm glad that Louis did.
One, it is not all about Blair. I am so sick of the show centered around her for the WHOLE season. Two, Louis, who everyone hates and just wants to see leave is still here. I am so sick of looking and that guy's face every day. Well it is what Blair deserves for being a whiny little princess which is what she has turned into. This brings me to three, the change in Blair's character. I know that Blair is supposed to be all mature now, but she is acting more childish than ever. Her reasons for not being with Chuck even though she loves him more and more every day are weak, and the Blair I used to see would NEVER submit and marry Louis, a man she doesn't even love. The producers said that they wanted GG to go back to what it was like in season one, well the only way I see that happening is if they bring Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz back.
I don't really know what to say. If this was supposed to be the grand and spectacular 100th episode then the rest of the season is not going to be very good. Now this episode had some good moments with Serena being smart for once, Georgina being awesome (and GG?), Nate being typical Nate, and the parents were all great of course. The problem I had with it (ship bias aside) was that if I compare this supposedly amazing episode to season one episodes it is not nearly as good. It would probably be an average episode when compared to season one, and for a few reasons.
I definitely LOVE this episode! It's wonderful!Although CHAIRYTALE didnt happen, this episode surely is nerve-racking and heartbreaking.I love the lines,the characters esp Mommy Waldorf ,the fashion and of course the SURPRISES!!! Good job for the writers!Just please bring CHAIR back to each other's arms asap!:))
Chair all the way! Dont get me wrong, i love Dan, but Chuck and Blair are definitely endgame! I love the dan and blair and dan and chuck friendships though. I hope we see more of that.
Also does anybody remember that after the car crash Jack Bass rings dianna?? Can't wait to find out what thats all about.
I love that scene between Chuck and Blair in her changing room. Their dialogue was so amazing. What I have a hard time believing was that last week Chuck was so on board with the priest to r and stop the wedding and now he was completely ready to let her go...again. I feel like something happened within the week that we missed.
One good thing I realized came out of this episode was that Serena kind of said it all for us. Chair is epic. They will always have each other and will always come back to one another.
Who did send that video then???
Oh great, so I guessed this means Dair may be a real couple *gag*. I just want Chair to be together already and I don't really care for Serena and Dan.
Overall this episode was okay, but I definitely did not shed any tears. Blair lookd beautiful though.
Lily and Rufrus...umm seriously just go away.
One flaw that I noticed was tha the priest never showed up after talking to Georgina. This show tends to do that alot. They often end a character's storyline kind of aruptedly so it doesn't make sense. I mean I'm glad he's gone but to end it so sudden was just weird.
I didn't expect Louis to be that heartless. But whether they get married or not, the video was already leaked so there wasn't much point to going throught with the wedding. If anything, it makes it look like Blair is marrying him out of guilt. His dialogue in the beginning with Serena was just awful.
The 100th episode was okay. I have seen much better episodes, but this one also has many surprises that I did not see coming. I don't have much to say just because there wasn't anything epic about this episode to be honest.
It just occurred to Nate on the day of the wedding that all his relationships were based on lie? Wow, he really is slow. And is that girl the real Charlie? Umm, does Carroll really not know where her daugther is or something because why would she work in New York?
...But nowadays nothing makes sense on GG anymore. The writers turned Blair into this annoying and whiney version of her old self, so I guess we will see Dair happen unfortunately.But I will certainly not watch it, that would be gross. And that's not meant as an insult to Dair fans. This is just my opinion. I hope we get to see the NJBC takedown or Chair plotting against the Grimaldis that would be great. I'm glad that Jack's returning to GG and his and Diana's storyline will perhaps be interesting. And I really love Harold, Cyrus and especially my favourite Chair shipper Eleanor! Loved her scene with Chuck! That was just great!
@xmeg816x , torontogirl98 I agree with you. Dair being friends is okay, but a romance between them wouldn't make sense at all. Blair told Serena to tell Dan about her feelings and she didn't seem to be jealous at all. When Louis told her that Dan had written the vows she seemed hurt because Louis betrayed her but she didn't seem like she was reconsidering her feelings towards Dan. Besides to hurt Serena by having a relationship with Dan, that's just wrong.
Wasn't it obvious that they would again not let Chuck and Blair be happy? Of course they would make Blair run away with Dan, and by that time I so disappointed with the whole episode that I didn't even care about G being Gossip Girl.
WHY DO SO MANY PEOPLE WANT DAIR?? Dan sucks, his character is just despicable he's like Blair's puppy or something who just revolves around Blair grr the way the UNFAIRLY blamed chuck for sending the blast and why did he write those vows for Louis in the first place and he knew damn well she didn't love him and whyyyy did he support he in the stupid plan of marrying Louis to protect Chuck and he knew that's why she was doing it
But you know what, after all that went down these last few episodes Blair doesn't even deserve better than Dan or Louis. I hope that Blair and Dan elope somewhere out of gossip girl together. It just brakes my heart to see Chuck so unhappy. He should fall in love with G, she's the closest thing to the old Blair we used to love.
xmeg816x My thoughts exactly its not that I hate Dan, but I don't see how it is even possible for Blair to start dating him when she is so madly in love with Chuck. I really enjoy their back and forth with each other but again they are friends, and not everyone on GG needs to sleep together! I loved how much Chuck grew up this episode, like how he refused to play the priest's game, he is so much more mature now
i am already quite annoyed with blairs character just because of her bipolar ways with chuck. one second in the episode she is telling him how much she loves him the next second she says he will always try to ruin her life. i don't even know why she assumed it was chuck who sent the blast someone else obviously filmed it so i don't know why her thoughts automatically went to him, she is queen b everyone is always trying to get dirt on her. on another note...
as soon as louis made his confession i got so excited at the idea of an old school NJBC take down. if it doesn't happen this show has really lost its way.
and did tonights episode make anyone else miss the old nate. when he actually truely mattered on the show. i am hoping for an s and n reunion to make them both matter again!
dissapointed with the idea of georgina as gossip. would have been way more shocking if it was like dan or something.
"one dad, not enough!" probably my favorite line of the whole episode. or when Eleanor told Blair she only gets more beautiful everyday showing her change in character compared to the pilot. Even the scene between Serena and Blair when they talk about Humphrey is so sweet and it reminded me of old times!
also, did anyone else feel like Blair running to Dan was just another reason for a twist? I don't understand why she had to ring him to tell him, wasn't he at the wedding? although I think it makes for good and I love their friendship but I just felt like it was a little forced.
I disagree with some people I think the chair scenes were spot on. My favorite thing about their scenes is that you can feel the passion and love in room and no other couple makes me feel that way on the show. Ed and leighton do a fantastic job every time.
I also felt like the make up crew stepped it up a bit. Blair and serena looked flawless the whole time.
anyway that's my 2 cents
