Hey Shan! I miss all of those discussions here, too; they were just so fun! I pop in to post pics and Elise pops in from time to time. Twitter seems to be where everyone is right now tho. I hope you are well and I am so glad you posted :)
hey Theresa!!! know they were!!! :( I honestly have no idea what I would have done to get through the absolute travesty of season 5 GG without the bunch of you!! thanks for keeping up the thread!!!
Shan!!!!! So glad you dropped in! I miss the old times too. The thread was so alive then but luckily Theresa's keeping it going :) What are you up to and how are you?? I miss everyone, but T's right, lots of them are still on twitter I think. Hope you're doing great!
Elise!! :D hey girl! The thread was honestly amazing!!! so many brilliant discussions!!! I am now halfway through my degree ( CRAZY!! you must be getting on in it too??) and still adjusting to moving half a world away!!! how are you?? hmm i had thought about joining twitter but wouldn't have a clue how often id use it! if you're on it, tell them I say hi if you ever speak to them!!
hey guys!!! long time no talk!
I was reading through some old posts on here... man I miss the old times, and the chats we used to have about the show!!! :( whilst it was agony for those season 5 eps, it was so nice talking to everyone and having those great discussions! I wonder what everyone's up to these days!
hey guys, I really miss this page and when it was active all the time :( I've never thought about it before now but I was wondering who of you are on twitter, I was thinking of making a GG one...
You're brave to watch it all over again. I rewatched season 1 this summer and will probably rewatch season 2 at some point but I doubt I'll ever watch season 3-6 again. Once was more than enough :P Good luck with 3x18!! Those pictures you posted make me sad enough, let alone watching it...I will never get that whole IP thing. I still think Chuck would never. And then the CJ thing, NO WAY. GROSS!!! But as far as I'm concerned, S3--> never happened anyway :)
haha yea, i thought that too, and rewatching it too I found that while most of season 4+ especially season 5 is completely unwatchable due to Safran shitting ALL over it, I did enjoy quite a few things from season 3! I agree though, I doubt Chuck would even CONSIDER selling Blair, he loves her way to much to ever put her through that. See I think the producers knew how much of a goldmine they had with Chuck and Blair, and they just desecrated them. they took that unbreakable bond they were forming and stretched it to the point where drama became the driving force for their relationship. Luckily, the chemistry between these two was so magnificent that they could deal with the RIDICULOUS storylines that got thrown at them, and incredibly well too. but they took it too far, it seems like once they realised how special they were to the show they emphasised that, but in the wrong way.
to be honest..the only line they didn't cross was to have Chuck outright cheat on Blair, and it's basically known to everyone that it would never, EVER have happened. He just would NOT do it. There wouldn't be any urge to!! The same thing in my mind is what they had him do instead, he would never have done that either.
hey guys!! long time no talk, i hope everyone is still around somewhere!!
i am rewatching the series all the way through, part of a uni procrastination routine ive got myself into...
and omg i fall in love with these two all over again. If you havent done it in a while, i recommend going and rewatching it, you notice things you didn't before! I got pissed at the time of the lack of CB in season 3, and while I still am annoyed, there are SO many amazing moments for them, and so important like hand holding, and supporting each other, learning even more about who they are and how they work together. they are just so perfect! I am now however up to 3x17 and I am debating whether i can torture myself and watch the rest of season 3....hmmm :/
Personally, I think 3x18 is the most PAINFUL upsetting 40mins on a tv I've ever seen. Omg my heart broke for them, I dont think I can sit through it again!! :(
she loves him so much :( and he her but he doesn't even know how to apologise or fix what he's done. he just knows he's desperate to! GAHH
I will always, always answer Blair when I think of this question because I loved her so much in the first 2 seasons, and to me GG WAS s1&2.
Chuck nearly as much, especially season 2 it just brought out a completely new level of vulnerability to his character that hadn't been there previously, largely due to Ed's SUPERB acting. He just caused you to feel such empathy towards him, there was something about him that just made you root for him without losing his personality at all. So yea, Blair and then chuck most of the way through and will always remember them overall as my favourite. HOWEVER due to Blairs horrific character assassination in s5, the later years have caused me to love Serena more and more because she is just SUCH a great person. She always has been and I've always loved her but her heart of gold was just so prominent towards the end, given all she put up with, all she had to go through I admired her a lot! So at the end of the series I would say her and Chuck.
hey guys!! hope you're all well, I'll try and post here a bit more often, I would hate to see this thread die, theresa and elise you are AWESOME for keeping this alive!!
omfg, I've just revisted the no white noise recaps. they are actually HILARIOUS. the one I'm reading right now, 6x10 lol just one eg,
LOL I LOVE LILLY'S CAPTIONS hahahahah
hahaha love him for pointing out the absurdity of this show LOL
LOL what rhe actual fuck was that seriously hahaha, rufus is a fucking joke
oh good lord the trueness of this....*face-fucking-palm*
LOL LOL LOL
Serena in 1x11 'Mom anytime you say it'll just be the three of us, it means you're dating someone new, whoever it is I don't care, I'll just meet him at the wedding'. That's GOTTA be one of the funniest things S has ever said if not the funniest omfg LOL hahaahah
I know right, I wish it got put into capable hands, the difference would be just unbelievable.
haha the thing about Serena is that she has the tendency to jump to conclusions, or be so dense in her assessment of situations initially (similarity to Nate, bless him!), however she can be so perceptive about people at the same time it's ridiculous!! I mean she is for SURE and without a doubt the biggest CB shipper on the show lol, she calls both of them out on their bullshit especially Chuck in 2x19 which is great because the show needed someone to do that otherwise they NEVER would have sorted their shit out lol. It's what makes her annoying later on though, she can come across as so self-righteous (I wonder who rubbed off on her by any chance?) but she's got a good heart!
Back then, I really just loved the show in general. Every single thing about it. I definitely didn't watch for Chuck and Blair until season 2 and then later on when it really was the only thing that kept me watching this show at all. I really enjoy Blair/Nate, Serena/Blair, Dan/Jenny, etc. and all of the family dynamics. Watching this ep gives me those warm fuzzy holiday feelings haha. It's classic GG and I love it.
totally, TOTALLY agree!!!
And yes, I remember Serena getting on my nerves in season 2, but so far in s1, I really like her. She's such a great person. Everytime Blair is ridiculous, she puts up with it and remains a good friend. And she puts up with Dan's judgmental douchiness (he has some likable qualities in s1 but I still don't like him ughhh). Rewatching these eps is really making me more of a Serena fan :)
oh yea haha the amount of times she just rolls her eyes at Blair is actually really funny lol. what I liked about their dynamic is that Blair could say whatever she wanted, tease her about her past and she knew never to take it to heart she just brushed it off as 'Blair being Blair' lol, and when Blair bashed the heck out of Dan she knew it was pointless to fight back lol noone beats Blair in a sparring match, except for Chuck :P. And Blair sounds like shes being a total bitch until you see scenes like in 1x06 where she orders her minions to find S a date no matter what, and of course 1x16 onwards. and Dan is actually SO funny. It's a shame, I hated him so so sooooooo much at the end of the show but prior to him falling in love with Blair (its cringing to even type that) he was such a sarky guy, kind of the sense of humour alot of people in my country are prone to having.
and LOL at the scene in 1x14 with Chuck in the bathroom. Seriously gotta be one of my faves 'this is MY bathroom......I don't share any of your DNA, nor do i ever wish to...' 'Then I suggest you get new hand towels' LOLOLOL
and dan as gossip girl. yea, pretending that didn't happen. Biggest joke ever rewatching season 1. As far as I'm concerned, we never find out because accepting it's Dan just completely ruins not only DS for me which I actually really loved in S1 and 2, but Dan himself. As much as I hated him, I loved most of the characters in the first 2 seasons, and him being GG destroys that because it makes him the biggest creep in the world IMO.
