When Did Gossip Get So Boring?

I have grown irritated with Gossip Girl...anyone else? The first two episodes of this season have been, well, "inane" comes to mind. Which I should probably expect, the show was hideously stupid last year, but it was at least interesting and sometimes funny. This year it has just been plain old stupid.

I feel like it has lost some of its darkness, and I think that is what made it interesting. Just having them say "The Hamptons" over and over again is really not that entertaining, and I really find myself not caring at all what happens to anyone on the show. I will give it a couple more weeks, but it is now on a pretty short leash...

On the plus side, the clothes have been much better:-) I loved Serena's dress last night...very summery.

So, an update on a previous story...I am totally the best matchmaker on Earth!!! Since the last update, BFFg and the as-yet-unnamed boy have continued to see each other, progressively more, and she now reports that he is officially a boyfriend. They spent most of the weekend together, and then eventually got into what Ally likes to refer to as a "DTR". The result? Smitten kittens all around:-).

She is super happy, which makes me happy...and I am totally taking credit for this one:-D. I should actually call him today, but I am a little leery because I don't quite know what the protocol on this sort of thing is. I suppose I should just ask Boss Foxy, who will almost certainly make me call him immediately...:-).

Now...about BFFb...we gotta get to work on him...If only I could get him to date someone for more than a month before he gets bored with her...

I think we watch it for the clothes.Tom wants to be dress like Chuck Bass.

Too bad you don't live down here; I could use a Matchmaker:)

Never seen Gossip Girl, but the title of the show alone makes me think it might be inane....

Gossip Girl is such a guilty pleasure for me. I was kind of bored last night as well. There was almost too much scandal in last night's episode if that is possible. The clothes however are FAB.

Oh I totally disagree. I think the show has really found it's groove. Of course, I'm a TV geek like you're a civics geek so I notice little things like JAY MCINERNEY (author of Bright Lights, Big City and former boyfriend of John Edwards's mistress Rielle Hunter)as Dan's boss/mentor. Come on, that's kinda clever. And yeah, I kind of love the clothes, too. :-)
