Are you ready for Josh Schwartz’s next guilty pleasure? Are you prepared to get hooked on yet another group of beautiful rich teenagers [played by twenty-somethings] who have far too much money and power, yet still manage to face those everyday peskly little ‘problems’ like drug addiction, date rape and peer pressure? If not, do not click here.
No seriously, if you’re anything like this TV Addict — translation: you have ‘issues’ when it comes to getting hooked on television shows like BEVERLY HILLS 90210, THE OC and MELROSE PLACE — do not even think of clicking here. If you do, you’ll be taken to iTunes where you’ll be able to download the series premiere of the highly anticipated new CW show GOSSIP GIRL. And again, if you’re anything like this TV Addict, say goodbye to twenty-two hours of your life.
GOSSIP GIRL has it all. The pilot comes complete with a mean girl rivalry (Serena vs. Blair), the usual mystery (Why exactly is Serena’s brother in the hospital?), the standard party of the year (in this case, the ‘Kiss on the Lips Ball’) and what’s now become the obligatory Josh Schwartz trademark party dust up between good guy Dan and bad boy Chuck. Oh, and did we even mention that Veronica Mars herself, Kristen Bell narrates as ‘gossip girl’? Pretty much all that’s missing is a welcome to Manhattan B*itch!
It goes without saying that this TV Addict is already hooked and assuming everything goes according to the CW’s master plan — soon you will be too. Blake Lively is the new Misha Barton. Seth Cohn — you’re so 2005 — make room for Dan Humphrey. And Blair Waldorf, well you make Julie Cooper Nicol look nice.
