Rating the Arrival of Georgina


Last night's Gossip Girl marked the much hyped arrival of the character of Georgina (played by Michelle Trachtenberg).


So how did you guys think she did?


Personally, though I wrote earlier that I was excited about Trachtenberg joining the cast, I was not entirely sold by her performance. Maybe it is just the fact that she looks young to me, but the dark hair and dark makeup (and even the phone conversation with a supposed drug dealer) did not convince me that she was bad news (just dressed that way). I still am far more scared by Blair...


Either way, I like the idea of the character. She's bound to create some good new drama!


What did you all think of Georgina's debut?

I agree that she is not that good an actor but she did make you wonder about Serena's past. She did what she was hired to do.

I didn't like her performance either, I kept thinking of Harriet the Spy the entire time. Like it was the only time Trachtenberg could actually act. I haven't seen her do a good performance since. Even when she was staring at Dan at the end of the episode, I wasn't convinced. But her character is gonna give the show more drama so thats the only plus..

She wasn't very gud at all!!! I expected Georgina 2 b reeking of wicked trouble, n Michelle did not portray this at all. Even comments like "u kno how i get wen im angry..." still didnt make her look the least bit menancing! I just hope that she does a better job bcuz the storyline of her secret with serena is very intriguing...can't wait 2 c how it will unfold!!!

She got me intrigued about Serena's past. But her acting was kind of plain.

plain and simple, Michelle Trachtenberg is <i> not a good actor </i>. it's kind of hard to ignore.

I think she played her 'Bitchy' performance well. She made you believe that both her and Serena had a rotten past of tricks that hoped not to get out of the bag. Her character fit into the drama of Gossip Girl well. Serena better look out because someone is out for revenge and her boyfriend is the first target.

Personally I didn't think she was horrible. In my opinion she wasn't added to the show to be the new bitch on the block, just to add some drama and more crap for S. to deal with. I saw some mean but it was nothing compared to Blair. But it was enough to let us know she's bad news. overall I think she's was pretty good and wouldn't mind seeing more of her.
