This show is one of the few that I rate 5 out of 5. I have to admit I was a bit reluctant to start watching it because I thought it would be a really shallow show about a bunch of rich people dealing with stupid problems and pointless drama. After having watch it I guess my presumptions weren't completely wrong, but the thing is that it is really entertaining.
Yes the show is a bunch of rich people dealing with stupid things but the main reason I watch tv-series is to get away from my own life in a sense and understand other people's realities and this show just does that perfectly for me. It has a great mix of good looking people, great acting and balanced storytelling. Because it's a drama it's obvious that things are always going to happen to screw things up for the characters but they do it in a very good way on Gossip Girl.
I think another reason the show is so great and has such big following is that most people, secretly or not, dream about that upper class life and watch Gossip Girl really gives you the chance to pretend for a while that it's your life.
Lastly, what I think is the biggest reason I love the show so much is because it has one of my favorite couples in it - Chuck and Blair. These two always play games with each other which keeps things interesting but at the same time they are also so loving and wonderful together and Leighton Meester and Ed Westwicks chemistry together creates rainbows, just sayin'!
To anyone who enjoys watching the rich and glamorous clash, this show is a gem. Blake Lively and Leighton Meester play Serene and Blair, two best friends who's rocky friendship in New York makes for drama. The anonymous Gossip Girl keeps track of every aspect of the lives of these Upper East Siders, and it makes for great viewing.
