My 'There Might Be Blood' Review

Gossip Girl is a show about a judgmental boy named Dan. In this episode, he judges Nate, Vanessa, and his sister Jenny. After he is done judging them wanting morally, he decides that he should follow suit. this is a very bad message for our youth

Jenny is a 15-year-old girl in outright rebellion of her father. She wears Goth make up and is a very bad role model.

The parents on this show are all either ineffective or outright evil. No one ever goes to church on Gossip Girl.

Objectionable Material: The character Blair believes that she has been given a sign from God to blackmail an adulterous mother to get into Yale...

Hahahaha I love your perception of things!I actually agree with you to some extent but Jenny's goth make up is actually cool. And well I still enjoy watching the show. I dont imitate them though...

Dude, you need to tone it down.
I can see where you're coming from on a few of these points, mostly about Jenny and the parents. Everything else though, you need to take a step back and check the situation out more.

people commenting should note this article is from a girl named Lisa who wants to be a writer.
anyway, my thoughts on her piece:learn what a sentence fragment is.not going to church in no way exemplifies immoral behavior considering faith is not necessary in life and also has very little place in network television because it a) pigeon holes the characters and a religious beliefs for the show and b) lessons the target audience significantly. now, considering that a large portion of the shows viewers are young teenagers, including religion could quite possibly alienate a group of young people who are at a point in their lives where rebellion is the name of the game.Please also note that Blair did attend church in season 1 episode 8 after losing her virginity to Chuck in the back of a limo.
why is it a moral issue that Chuck refers to the back of his limo as "sacred"? that makes no sense. who cares what Chuck thinks is sacred.
in my opinion, the person writing this review, Lisa, is over analyzing the show, and even though I did mention that the majority of viewers are young teengers, the likelihood that they would get all the subtle sexual and inappropriate content is very slim. those that do are walking wikipedias or fantastic researchers, and in that case, mad props to them.
Keep in mind that Gossip Girl is intended for people, in my opinion, 16 and up, therefore, in the target range to do some of the things done in this show. though adults may view it as obscene, it is a fact of life that these are the things teenagers do, and with more money comes higher stakes. everyone experiences a childhood of mischief, theirs is just in a more complex media-savy world.
there, my review trumps yours.

GGirl - I don't believe I have to tell you this, but your comment obviously misses the point.
Benjy - You are funny and I like your review. But what it comes down to is this: GG is clearly a show that indulges in superficial content and the supposed allure of the 'high life' in Manhatten New York. I love it because it does not pretend to be anything else and makes no excuses about it. It is a show that one should clearly not watch if you keep your self-righteous hat on all the time. But if one enjoys that momentarily weekly indulgence, then I say what the heck, watch it and take it with a pinch of salt.

Why must every show have to have some religious quality? Not everyone in this country is religious, there are shows on TV dedicated to religion so go watch one of those.
How does wearing goth makeup make someone a bad role model? No one in this imperfect world is perfect, so why expect some show to depict perfect lives for their characters?
