I could care less for Vanessa, honestly, I feel like it was inevitable since the viewers don't seem to favor her. But I don't want this to be true; first off, unpopular opinion, I love Jenny. I always have. Thus far, I'm not fond of Charlie, but we'll see where the story goes. It has potential, but for some reason the actress portraying her just annoys me a bit. Just my two cents.
They had her dressed relatively classy, but still sexy in tonight's episode, and now this? Ugh, Serena, if you really want your professor to believe that you didn't send the email soliciting sex don't dress like this. It's rather simple, girlfriend.
She has no style. It's like the costume department didn't even think it over.
Why has this girl's wardrobe been so largely ignored?
I meant to say "schemes" against our UES characters.
Seriously you guys, this episode was PATHETIC.
I cannot believe I waited all summer for this piece of fluff. The acting was horrible, we hardly got to see any Paris landscape (just flashes of shop windows, why film in Paris if you're not going to SHOW Paris? Seems like a waste to me.), and the whole Dan/Georgina baby storyline does not intrigue me. In fact, I'm really struggling with why Dan Humphrey STILL hasn't grown a pair. He really seemed to be coming into his own last season at college, but now he chooses to just casually forgo a paternity test, or put it off for whatever reason? He doesn't even seemed phased that his "fate is sealed." Dan is supposed to be the street smart, savvy character. What happened to him? The only realistic part of all of this is the adults don't seem to buy it for one minute, especially Rufus. I loved Lily's "Please, you're enjoying this," to Georgina. At least the parental units in this episode were semi believable (especially Eleanor and Lily together on the topic of Serena at Columbia, and a note to the writers? No no and NO.)
I really wish Georgina would get killed off by a Russian mob, because her character bugs the shit out of me. Whatever motives she may have, I find myself not caring, just angry, and bored. Really angry. To me she is whiny, and not in the least bit the evil nemesis they make her out to be. Sure, she's a pathological liar and she scenes against our UES characters, but short of that, she lacks the bite and sly persona that Agnus has.
I wish that the subpar season premieres the writers have been feeding us for the past two years improve, because if they don't, how do they expect to keep viewers or improve ratings? I am constantly being let down by all the hype surrounding the return of a new GG season, but I stick around, because a loyal fan just doesn't give up on a show after being invested in it since its beginning. I find myself questioning, however, whether or not we'll ever get back to the intrigue of season one. Maybe I'm reaching for the stars, here. I don't know.
The only thing I am excited about is Katie's character. She seems pretty awesome/mysterious. I can't wait to see what she brings to the show. However, if she and Nate become an item, I don't give them two seconds together. She's too smart for him.
Agree with Queen B. And UGH, Serena, MUST YOU? The ensemble and hair is just too much. Hair department, enough with the braided ponytail! Not a good look at all.
Here's what this proves,
Gossip Girl still sucks. I want my Gossip Girl back. :(
Here's what I have to say about all of this,
I hope Taylor stays on the show, and I don't have any inclination that she's leaving. I've noticed that people may be transferring their Vanessa Hate to Jenny, why do this? Yes, she's screwing with everyone's beloved Serenate, but hello, this is GOSSIP GIRL. Shiz is SUPPOSED to go down. Without the drama, the show has to survive on whose hair is shinier and that lack of what the writers are calling their pathetic excuse for a plot these days.
Taylor Momsen is one of the few actors on the show that can actually act, her and Ed Westwick, and I'm standing by that. Their characters are fantastic, and they always make the most of whatever writing they're given, even if it isn't the best. I hope to see more Chuck and Jenny scenes because together they are explosive. They seem to be the only diabolical characters left. Put them together and you get magic.
I may be in the minority here, but I absolutely adore Little J. Always have.
