I agree with superchuckfan
its funny because they really all did (though i wouldn't ever put Chuck on a Bart level)
it probably was intended.
Season 1 Episode 1
The main thing that I thought of that made me make this discussion is:
Has anyone else noticed that whoever Nate sleeps with you end up hating? (Diana, Ivy/Charlie, Sage) etc
I feel they have ruined Nate. Whenever you think they'll finally let him be the good romanctic guy with a happy ending, or the good loyal friend, or a mature guy with a real relationship, he ends up screwed.
I agree about the writers! And the show is basically cancelled. This season is their last. They do deserve a final season. Hopefully they can redeem themselves and leave on a good note...
Yeah I'm really bad at guessing people's ages just by looking at them. I found out that the actress who plays Diana is actually like 50... whoops lol
They only have like 10 epsidoes left do they really need to waste one on horses?
I thought Dan was cute and charming when he was dating Serena in Season 1. I felt bad for him! But now, I want him to join Little J on the island of misfit toys. I hate him. He complicates and demolishes every relationship on this ex-amazing show. He has some nerve. Wanting to be friends with Chuck and saying he was going to help CHAIR, then orchestrating the unsuccessful nightmare we now know as DAIR. I have loved CHAIR since season 1 and still love them now. Though people hate to admit it, CHAIR is the main staple of the show and the only plot that has survived 5 brutal seasons. I am not saying they created the show to revolve around CHAIR, they created the show to tell the stories of 5 high school - college aged "kids". However, Chuck and Blair's beautiful yet complicated relationship has always been an important part of the plot ever since season 1. I have realized that one of the main reasons I always loved GG is because of the way they USED to depict CHAIR. It was hot. It was adorable. In a way, it was what every girl wanted. The dark prince. He was charming and sexy. He was smooth, smart,a dn good at everything. He was what everyone wanted, but only Blair could have. His devotion to Blair was adorable. Many people loved how passionate and hot they were. They were always making out and hooking up and it was hot. It was what we all wanted for ourselves. They truly did love each other and always pulled through for each other. CHAIR is the deep, passionate relationship we all dream about before we go to sleep. We were jealous of Blair because we wanted to be her, yet we wanted Chuck to have her because we love their hot moments and love to see them make each other happy. Although no one can hurt Blair or Chuck more than each other, no one can make either of them happier or complete besides the other. It hurts to see them apart which is why watching season 5 grew more painful as the weeks went by. Yet, how could we not watch? In our hearts, we know they will end up together which is why we keep watching week after weeek waiting for THE moment. I don't know about you fellow CHAIR shippers, but I will go down with the sinking GG ship until the moment CHAIR is on again. Though GG has dissapointed in the chair department the past couple of seasons, I am Chair forever <3
I will admit it, GG is my guilty pleasure. I have absolutely LOVED the show since season1 and have been a CHAIR supporter since episode 107. I am not trying to bash the show, I am just simply expressing some frustration have had with GG recently. First and foremost, the show needs to end with Blair and Chuck married and happily together forever. Chair is basically the only story line that has survived every single season. Second, what was the point of DAIR? DAIR made absolutely no sense and only lasted a couple of episodes. It was a major waste of time. Third, Blair's whole pact with God was very annoying. It didn't really make sense. She and Chuck could have been on the road to happily ever after sooner. Fourth, the entire Charlie/Ivy/Lola thing was truly absurd. It made no sense at all whatsoever, came out of nowhere, and took up like an entire season! Fifth, Lily and Rufus suddenly fighting over everything didn't really make sense either. They were a cute couple/family until one day they decided having them fight over everything would be relevant to the show. Sixth, why did Bart Bass come back? WHY?!? This has to be one of the most confusing things in all of GG. They killed him off in Season 2 which was actually a good idea because it helped develop Chuck as a character and was surprising and unexpected. What I don't understand is what were the writers thinking? What did they go to work one day and decide hey, why don't we make up some crazy story that makes no sense to bring Bart Bass back from the grave! I still don't understand the logic behind that. Seventh, why did they have to make Chuck's mother such an important and confusing plot? His mother is dead, now it's Elizabeth, now it's Diana Payne. WTF!?! It doesn't even make sense. Diana is some 30 year old whore who is okay with banging her son's bestfriend in her son's apartment. The math doesn't even add up because Diana is let;s say 32 and Chuck is let's say 20. Are you trying to tell me Diana gave birth to Chuck when she was 12? I don't think so.
I love the show and always will. But let's admit it. In season 1, everything made sense and show looked great and addictive. It is still good and very addictive, but in retrospect, everything up to now doesn't really fit in. All of these extra characters and extra plots don't make sense or fit into the Grand Scheme of Things, which should be the the UES Royalty, Chuck, Blair, Nate, and Serena (and Brooklyn's own Dan Humphrey) (and occasionally Georgina) living their lives. All of the plots should revolve around these 5 characters. Not crazy Ivy/Charlie/Lola, or Rufus, or Lily, or Bart, or Diana, or Jenny, or Vanessa, etc.
Honestly, I feel like ever since (or even before) the GG team knew they were being cancelled, they kinda gave up. It was like they wrote these episodes in their sleep. Nothing made sense and loose ends weren't really tied up. Instead, new problems were created. Although I will always love the show, the writers and most recent episodes are making it too easy to say goodbye.
