~ Chuck & Blair ~ 2.0
Another cute pic...
it is actually sad..SO sad..how completely obvious the difference in every single aspect of this show is between seasons 1 and 2 and the latter ones. It is ridiculous, the most obvious is the standard of acting to be totally honest. Yes, they ALL had their great moments, but Leighton for example...take the scene in 2x14 in front of the mirror. How NATURAL and just plain emotive was it? it was like there was no effort involved, yet we all know she put EVERYTHING into it. and that's the difference, in seasons 5 in particular everything was just so OFF with her, her voice, her facial expressions, her movements. there was absolutely no natural flow, no connection with her character or the audiecne. same goes with the others as well. It is so upsetting sometimes watching season 2, for me season one was just AMAZING, the show was in its absolute prime, the storylines were so fresh and new and executed so perfectly. But season 2, the show just felt...seasoned, the acting took a total step up (even though it was SO good anyway) especially Leighton and Ed, they just came into their own TOTALLY. It felt like a well crafted movie, everything made SENSE. Their season arcs just made sense, it is just an absolute shame.
I totally agree with all of this. Perfectly put Shan!! The first 2 seasons are why I love this show. After that, it was just painful :/
thanks for the great pics Theresa! so many that I haven't seen before :)
