I am still hyperventilating as a result of last night's Gossip Girl and I'm kind of pissed off at Us and Kelly Rutherford for leaking the business about Eric. We've got bigger problems, though, don't you think? Here are mine:
1. The show only really sings when Rutherford, Leighton Meester or Ed Westwick is on screen. Last night's episode was extraordinary in being entirely Chuck-free (and Nate-free, for what it's worth), and yet compelling from beginning to end. But it brought home how dependent the tone of the show is on those three actors.
2. Are we sure this show isn't on Fox? Last week's Nelly Yuki material made me more uncomfortable the more I thought about it (I think I initially praised that subplot because Blair was so good). The take-away from this week was mildly supportive of gay teens, but we got there via some pretty homophobic stuff.
3. Michelle Trachtenberg is still not clicking for me. I think the problem is maybe the character: Georgina is unbearably evil. Even when Blair was being mean to Serena at the beginning of the season, she was never this bad. Also, again, see above about Leighton Meester doing no wrong.
What did you think? Do you care? After all, the fashion remains so great.
