TVD is achieving exactly what they want too. Its not just a bunch of nonsensical plots meant to reduce people to OMFG looks. There is an endgame (plotwise, not in terms of couples) in mind. And despite it being a plot-based show, there is character driven stuff. Which I appreciate.
I still think you were watching a different show if you did not see the whole thing about the witches, Esther, bloodlines and ect last season and the whole Silas and sire bond stuff this season as NON-sensical plots. As for the character-driven stuff....please explain that, cos yeah, again to whom exactly are you refering from the character list?
GG had no commitment to writing. No consistency. And not a single character showed growth, in any magnitude.
True BUT I think after s2 it wasn't about the writing anymore...anyway, my main point is, that even without the quality writing there were still so many reasons to watch GG - I for one along with sister and other people watched for the fashion....others tuned in just for the music..others because they liked the different locations where they shot scenes....or great parties they went to...What has TVD to offer except the doomed pseudo-triangles and man candy? NOTHING. Because now when TVD goes off air what will peopl remember it by? Oh just some vampire show that started out well and ended badly. Oh and there was shitty love triangle between a brainless chick and two psycho murderers. GG left some cultural significance for teens - girls dressed like Blair and Serena, it introduced a lot of bands and had many appear on the show, the OMFG posters, the promos they did, even quotes - I can name many good quotes from s1 and s2 by Blair, Chuck and even Dan....TVD for me will leave nothing except a painful memory of how good the books were and how the show did not live up to those standards.
To be honest i'd take the bad writing of GG over the bad writing of TVD anyday of the week. They are both HORRENDOUSLY BAD!!! However, watching Chuck and Blair beat watching anyone on TVD cast, Caroline and Klaus included. The storylines of GG were a lot more scandalously fabulous (up until season 4) than TVD up until now.
THIS so much! As for Chair, um hello first of all they were a REAL couple, Caroline and Klaus are not a real couple.....is still just a pairing that is only teased to maybe happen but honoestly probably never will. Until what happened with the hotel trade and then the punch, Chair was great....but then again Klaus already threatened Caroline's life twice by making Tyler bite her and then biting her himself....don';t know how you can call him a man after that.
