~ Chuck & Blair ~ 2.0
can't watch the preview on my iphone (not flash friendly) and can't watch on my computer right now as I'm at work. What are they saying about the ep? Anything worthwhile? Any hint that CB will get it together?
she's too beautiful to be real. her face is just perfection. i know i sound creepy but omg her gorgeousness scares me sometimes.
and the hair is fine...which is actually the problem. it's just...fine. her face is so perfect and she should have perfect hair to go with it! =P
I have mostly enjoyed the direction they went in with Chair up to season 4. I like the idea that once they were together, their love was so intense, their feelings for each other SO overwhelming, they just didn't know how to handle it. I will forever wish they came up with bloody better ideas than the IP and Chenny trainwrecks which were just indescribably AWFUL, but I like overall the stage they were in 4x09. Then came the absolute drivel and shite that Safran was team leader of, and apart from the apology scene in 5x06 I would like to forget the rest EVER happened. I even would have accepted what happendd in 4x22 if she HAD been pregnant with Chuck's baby. Season 5 had the potential to be alright. They never should have gone the late season 4 route that was just ridiculous, but they COULD have salvaged it before it was too late.
...Let's not even speak of late season 5, we all know how we ALL feel about this. But when you look back at the stage they were here, and you think about what we could have seen onsceen...I always ALWAYS wanted to see CB as a happy couple scheming, and taking down someone TOGETHER while they themselves were together. I REALLY wanted this. And thanks to failfran and his nutters we will never ever see it :(
*sobs* i'm with you, shan.
Shan, Sara Goodman is just wasting oxygen, she literally does nothing. And I really don't like her for some reason (well probably because she obviously doesn't know her own show b/c of the NJBC comment and because she can't handle producing 10 okay eps...) To me, she is an absolute airhead :P I wish Jake Coburn got EP.
Sorry but I don't really feel any sympathy for Chuck. I'm so sick of him being all dramatic. He could just stop obsessing about his dad and be with Blair, it's not that hard. I'm so so sick of it :P and at this point I think Chuck is just dysfunctional and can never be with Blair because he's obsessed with business/Bart/mommy issues and is always making excuses. ugh
and yay Blair and Nate!!!!
DS, ew. And I liked thanksgiving in s1/2. I didn't like s3's (I didn't like pretty much anything in s3 though) b/c they were all together and it was just superficial drama. the drama is obviously important but I just liked seeing how each family celebrated and seeing the family dynamics. not throwing everyone in the same room (even though it's not realistic that all of these people would be together on thanksgiving) to let the contrived drama unfold. whatever though
I'm happy about Blair and Nate though! and honestly I'm just annoyed at Chuck and sick of his excuses. He totally could be happy and be with Blair but he's just making excuses. I'm so done with it.
sanaa, she is soooo pretty, it's unreal!!! (but I agree, she should have perfect hair too!)
K, Chuck is moping alone and says 'if I could defeat my father do you really think I'd be drinking alone and unable to be with the woman I love?' to nate in his batman voice *rolls eyes*
and then we get a clip of a NB scene where they're trying to figure out how to help Chuck
then a clip with DS...I didn't listen but they're togetherish
then Georgina/Dan, and she's all worried that he's writing her a valentine chapter hoping she'll be all wooed (ugh I've been thinking this too. I can't even stomach DS, I almost have to look away because it's horrible and I wish Serena had some self respect, my God!!!)
and Jake Coburn talks the whole time and Sara Goodman literally does nothing :P at least she's not Safran I guess...
and that's about it!
they better have it together by the end of the next stupid episode. Like we know ep 9 has a major cliff hanger, probably some STUPID bs having chuck YET AGAIN nearly die. so if they aren't 'official' by then he will be proposing without them being together for even 1 fucking episode all season. It's just really pissed me off I thought they would have been TOGETHER by fucking episode 5 LATEST!! God these writers are just FUCKTARDS. Sorry, I am just absoltely stressed about exams and it is very satisfying to take it all out on these dickheads who I already hate!
Thanks for posting this Theresa, I love it:) Girls, you'll do great at your exams because Chuck Bass believes in you;)
Shan, this scene is perfection!!! Just look at them
OMG this scene. I cry my eyes out every time I watch this scene, and I've watched this scene numerous times, but Leighton and Ed and their amazing chemistry and talent get me everytime. This was just a beautiful scene, beautifully written and simply heartbreaking.
I will always love season 1 and 2. I admit that I was disappointed when season 3 started. Chuck and Blair were cute, but something was off. I don't know what it was, but after watching 3x01 I didn't feel like I felt after watching the s1 and s2 episodes. The storylines in season 3 bored me, Blair was starting to become a weak character, I didn't like that she attended NYU and there were many other things that I didn't like. I continued to watch the show because of my love for CB and because I was hoping that GG as a whole would return to its former glory. I shipped CB since episode 1, but I didn't watch GG just because of them in s1 and s2. I enjoyed watching s1 and s2 because I was interested in all of the characters, mainly the NJBC. But in s3 that changed. I kept on watching and there were scenes that reminded me of how great GG once was and how much potential this show had like for example the trainstation scene in 4x02. With Season 5 the show hit rock bottom. Except for Monkey, some of the CB scenes like for example Chuck's apology and Chily, I hated everything about it. And now in season 6 I'm trying to enjoy this show as good as I can. I don't watch the previews anymore, I don't listen to the GGirlsss podcast etc because I don't feel as interested in the show as I once was. As a viewer I can see how little the writers are interested in this show, how little they care about their viewers and you can even see that the acting got worse in this last season because the actors just want to move on.
I know all these things, I know that what you guys write is 100% true, but still I'm trying to enjoy this show. I know that I wasted four years on watching 3 mediocre seasons (s3, 4 and 6) and one horrible season 5. But this is the last season and I want to get as much fun out if it as I can. So I focus on these little things like for example Chate in the last ep and Chace's great performance. I try to focus on that and I try not to think about all the things that I didn't like. Besides there are still a lot of things that I love about this show. I love this thread, I love reading your comments and your rants, you guys manage to make me laugh about how horrible this show has become instead of being sad and I love you guys for that. I love reading fanfics, where the writers prove how good this show could have been with good writers, I love the gifs and the fanart that CBers post on tumblr, I love the CB videos on YT.
I'm an optimist, I can't help it and I hope that I'm not getting on your nerves. It's just the way I deal with what this show has become. So while I know how bad this show is, I'm trying to stay in my Chair bubble and I'm trying to enjoy these last three episodes as good as I can. If the finale is disappointing then GG ended for me in 2x25 and Chair lived happily ever after, because that was the last perfect episode for me, everything in that episode was great and the ending exceeded all of my expectations:)
Sorry for my long rant!
Thanks for the link to Serena love match tumblr post, K
Sacter were really cute, I absolutely love this gif
Leighton is gorgeous. I like her new hairstyle better when her hair is curly, like it was at the GG wrap party
