Last night's 80s flashback episode, "Valley Girls" was also the set up for a potential Gossip Girl spinoff (sometimes titled the former, sometimes titled "Lily"), focusing on Lily's wild years in the 80s with her sister in the Valley. While initially the buzz for this show was very strong and a pickup was likely, lately things have been cooling down . However...after watching this episode, we thought we'd ask you your opinion! Based on last night's episode, did you see a potential show? Should Valley Girls/Lily/GG Spinoff get greenlit...would you watch? Personally, while I found Brittany Snow well-cast (and I loved seeing Andrew McCarthy on TV yet again following the Lipstick Jungle ax...though he seems forever relegated to the "rich jerk" role)...I'm not sure I saw a whole show there. As many of you have pointed out, Lily is not exactly the most interesting or loved character on Gossip Girl as it is. A whole show about her...where she pretty much just acts like Serena in the 80s...I just don't know. Of course, Josh Schwartz has clearly proven himself to be an incredibly talented guy between The O.C. , Gossip Girl and Chuck , so perhaps if given some time and room to grow, the show could develop into something worth watching. What do you think? Yay or nay?
Gossip Girl Season two is locked and it says to contact you to edit it. Episode 23 "The Wrath of Con" has a description that is completely incorrect the correct description would be more like: Blair plays on Georgina's guilt over her checkered past and ropes her into helping with a scheme. Meanwhile, Chuck and Nate's competition over Blair heats up, and Lily finds a covert way to assist with Dan's college tuition.
While this weeks episode was great....No where in the episode was there any "lovechild" mention. Got me all excited to see that drama unfold and all we saw was the Old Georgina back. I must say, I am dissappointed.
wot is lilys secret about why she was in hospital in france did she have a baby wif rufus or sumin?
Many shows have awesome music that makes a moment or even the show overall, and often even brings us great new bands and songs we would've missed out on otherwise! So of these shows and any we missed, what show is your favorite when it comes to great new music you've come to adore and can always count on from your show?

Personally, I find Lily's character really rather pointless and to be honest, I really dont care or want to know what happened in her past. Does anyone else feel the same?? I think either the makers are INSANE or GENIUS...genius because they have the fabulous Brittany Snow playing Lily...what's not to love about that!!! C'mon people...lets admit it...we loved her in John Tucker... Either way...I'm just going to have to "forget" it's about Lily and watch the show for what it is...and give it a chance.
I just watched the sneak peak for Monday.... I think Gossip Girl is jumping the shark!! I am so beyond disappointed its not even funny.
So Serena sucked big time in taking over Little J's birthday, ruining it, and then running off with absolutely no real backlash or apology for being a selfish git. All the while Jenny's feelings and position get cast aside as the whining of a spoiled teen (which this time is actually un-fair). == Go Team Jenny & Boo to Serena's FAIL PS How old is Poppy that she's jet setting all over the place and living with some random guy? If she's Serena's age, where are her parents? ==To Poppy's Parent--> FAIL Now to the juicy bits that sent our eyes popping out of our heads and had us saying a big WTF at the end: Blair|Nate and Chuck|Vanessa Strangely enough, Vanessa warrants the first mention in this weeks WTF. Her character development has to be the strangest and most unbelievable. I have to say that I have mixed feelings when it comes to Vanessa. On one hand, she's this smart, deep, beautiful girl, who works hard and has a good head on her shoulders; which begs the question how a character like this could be in GG? She's all about the anti-drama, being real, and having a normal existence yet we find her on GG? It feels like the writers are forcing this character to act in ways that are in direct opposition with the way they wrote her. The Vanessas of the world would have nothing to do with the Nate Archibalds no matter how prince charming or nice they seemed to be. Nate stands for almost everything Vanessa hates, so I have no idea how they even got together in the first place beyond the fact that they're both good looking. Vanessa was written as no crap taker with proper morals and ethics and now she's this whiny thing pining away for the King of Vapid Flatness Nate Archibald and gets suckered into the bed of walking STD Chuck Bass? (I still love Nate and Chuck btw don't get it twisted) == --Points for inappropriate and unrealistic character development and butchering a potential role model On to Mr. Archibald. I'm not hating his decisions this week. It's like he woke up and realized that his relationship with Vanessa was based on nothing and would fall apart under the slightest bit of scrutiny. Oh that's right, after the 5 millionth thing to threaten their flimsy relationship, it finally did fall apart. From his side of things, it looked like they were only together so that he could get a consistent amount of support and love which his family and friends weren't giving (and to them I give a big FAIL). He finally gets his family back, as well as a sense of self worth and direction; so he really doesn't need Vanessa anymore. With that, she's out the door and guess who walks in? Miss Blair Waldorf. Ok, I see why he would want to be with her. She knows him better than just about anyone (she actually has great insight when she's looking beyond herself), she fits into his world and understands it, and she knows how to stand by him based on the rules of that world. And I think that he's been through enough crap where he's no longer so extremely clueless and could actually be a good friend and bf for Miss Blair. Face it ppl, Vanessa would never have survived Nate's world. And remember that while she was trying to save him from that world, he never actually asked or seemed interested in being saved. She was just like a Vacation. Harsh but honest. == Kuddos Mr. Archibald for manning up, picking a direction, and behaving the way your character was written Note: No one forgets that Nate is a fickle bed hopper but I'm trying to keep the faith. Oh to Chuck|Blair. Are they two totally messed up individuals that fit well together, yes. Do they love each other, yes. Do they work, no (for right now anyway). People are coming down on Blair for moving on so quickly, but I don't think that's fair. She did everything she could for Chuck and consistently got tossed aside and walked over for it. She had her breaking point. It's understandable. He was too little, too late; especially when she nee
Bravo has greenlit a real life version of Gossip Girl (I'm thinking like all of those Real Housewives shows...but with teens) called NYC Prep . It will premiere on Tuesday, June 16th at 11PM and will move to 10PM in subsequent weeks. Official Description: ''NYC Prep chronicles the lives of a group of privileged teenagers who are key players in Manhattan's elite high school scene. Students who travel in packs - whether it's on sophisticated vacations or to a townhouse for an exclusive midnight party, their lives intertwine as they network, shop, party, study, date and write college applications. Everyone's beautiful and everyone's connected. On the surface, it seems that these teens live an enviable life. They have access and privilege to spare, and can't imagine that anything or anyone, will get in their way. Over the course of the series, we'll see them on the benefit circuit, viewers will get to know their families, their entourage (trainers, college application advisers, stylists) and their guys/girls of the moment. But privilege has its price. Despite their carefree lives, the pressure of lofty expectations can sometimes be too much for even the most confident teenagers.'' So...is this a show you think you'd like to watch? I always thought those Real Housewives series looked silly, yet recently I have found myself addicted (especially NYC), so I am totally there!

I was so excited to see Remains of the J because I knew that Blair and Nate were getting back together and I couldn't wait to see Chuck's jealousy and attempt to win Blair back. But what I got was more than I bargained for. I really didn't have to see Chuck waking up to see Vanessa doing up her dress..the same dress from the night before..implying that they had sex. I had faith in the writers..I really thought that they were building Chair up to be this epic romance but honestly, they've just dug themselves into a grave and I can't see how they're going to get out. I can not believe that they have screwed my favourite couple on the show; I honestly felt like when I saw the last 2 minutes of the episode. What happened to Blair and Chuck's LOVE? Blair seemed pretty much over Chuck and completely smitten with Nate (but I'm not complaining, I like Nair); as for Chuck...could he be any less predictable? Someone who moves on from girl to girl so easily can't be in love with another girl. Someone who loves a girl wouldn't expend all their energy on trying to make them jealous by sleeping with the SCUM of the show. I hate Vanessa so much right now. She has a thing for ruining the best couples on the show, doesn't she? For such a minor brain-numbingly dull and boring character, she can be a real pain in the ass. I wish she'd just get stabbed on the subway or something. Anyone else share my views?
