For the seventeen covers on page 2 - is it just me, or does it looks like were 'shopped into bobbleheads? ;)
chairisthebest - I'm exactly the same! Yesterday watched it twice (in pieces, the way they show it on the Canadian tv station's website), and once or twice in full. And the ILY over and over again... A few times just to help it sink in, then once each just looking at Chuck or Blair, then once again to see how the producers/directors wanted you to look at it (whose face was emphasized), then again to see their body language and chemistry...
They are a little clumsy and out of sync, but that is (I think to myself) both because they've been apart so long, and that the true and deep feelings are bubbling out of them so much, and are so honest, that they are learning to be together in a whole new way... It actually reminded me of a scene in Dawson's Creek, where Pacey and Joey are having dancing lessons, and their love on the verge of flowering, makes them awkward dancers...
What a fabulous episode... in some ways both more and less than I imagined... Hoping ridiculously and desperately that they will be posting "Spotted C&B" on the GG blog all summer... even Pacey & Joey had online postcards & journal entries, and that was years & years ago...
How the hell are we going to last 103 more days? Fantasizing??? LOL!
I have to agree with everyone here. I started watching GG to see what all the hype was about, and at first wasn't too sure of it. But the infamous limo scene was an incendiary catalyst, and I was hooked. I must admit that I hated Blair at first, but her pursuit of Chuck both matured and softened her, deepened her complexities, and did much the same for the character of Chuck. While I didn't hold the events and inconsistencies of the pilot to be canon, the lingering taste of Chuck as a potential rapist and all-round asshole took enormous talent to be transformed into the most vulnerable and compelling character on the show. I am simply amazed at the strength of these two actors, and am of course thrilled that their paths kept crossing, and how now joined... hopefully for a long (but tumultuous to keep it interesting!) time...
The Canadian TV station now has the full episode online here for those of us in Canada (and those who know how to set up internet proxies). http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNews/show/CTVShows/20090113/Gossip_Girl-default-test/20090114/
I OMFGGaga hereby join the Sisterhood of Gossip Girl!
I agree with what you said B*4*Bianca"im gonna watch seasons 1 and 2 over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again ! and probably not even THAT will keep me fully satisfied..!"
I wonder if the last half of the season will finally begin to make some sense to us after we've rewatched everything without any long hiatuses... I'm hoping it will. Having the CV hookup just b4 the last break was a disastrous move, and I'm hoping the writers will look better once the grand scheme is all laid out.
During the breaks I started rewatching from the beginning, but have to admit I couldn't watch New Haven Can't Wait and beyond... I got sooo mad at Serena, b/c that is where Blair began to lose the fight for Yale, and so heartbroken for Blair. NYU just won't do for our Queen B...
Lilly Lean, when you misheard (4/28/2009 2:55:05 AM) S calling Nate a "catman" she said "kept man" - the Duchess kept him as a mister-ess ;)
Whether it was sex for money, or a more experienced older woman, that made Nate a better lover this time round... I don't even want to know!
Didn't mind V too much after the initial I Never moment (anything to do with that disastrous move by the writers has seriously affected the liking I had for the character).
Jenny was decent as well, not at either emo extreme or happy-go-lucky babybot. The only thing that bothered me was her stick legs up to her neck. Toooo skinny stilts - it's been a while since I had the body or metabolism of a teenager, but hers can't be healthy????
Loved the Georgina moments, ESP. when she realizes that she has a chance to settle a score with Blair - that should be excruciatingly fun.
Watched it just now, on the Canadian station's website. Not everything I hoped for, but decent.
Hmmmm.... how many of us think that Chuck might be using G to break up Nair since B left with the limo. Killing two birds with one stone? On a drama level, things are ramping up excitingly. IRL, I'd not be too impressed with C tho. But Nate... he is kinda trying to handle this maturely... but... he seems to be trying sooo hard to make Nair work that he's once again ignoring who Blair really is, and trying to change what he actually does see of her real self. I'd prefer an out and out battle, but that's not really how C plays the game. It's a chicken-and-the-egg question - would C be trying to break NB up if N didn't forbid CB from being friends? I think this time, N's jealously and failure to recognize B's true self will end up pushing B into C's arms... and it won't take much longer!
Check out this little idea of theirs: http://cwtv.com/thecw/dovegofresh
I'm sure it won't take but a minute or two for us loyal Insiders to tear it apart. It's enough for many true fans to stop buying Dove - their taste is so appalling...
P.S. I wasn't a V hater until she slept with Chuck - now the gloves come off ;D
