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.
