O: Overhyped, Not.
Where as most television events are overhyped to a point where fans are virtually guaranteed to be disappointed [exhibit 'A': Robin Sparkles, but more on that later], last night’s return of GOSSIP GIRL delivered the goods in a big way.
M: “Maybe I’m a total Bitch”
Yes Blair, you totally are. But that’s why we love you. In fact what made last night so much fun was that even whilst dolling out evil, this TV Addict wasn’t sure which team he was on — Team Jenny, Team Blair, or Team I’m Way Too Old To Be Watching This Show.
Actually, check that. I’m totally on Team Blair. When is Jenny going to clue into the fact that she doesn’t have to pretend to be rich to fit in? I mean seriously, who does she think she’s fooling? Everybody knows she’s from [gasp!] Brooklyn. And if television’s taught us anything, it’s that it’s okay if you’re poor as long as you’re good-looking and friends with the boy everybody wants to date. Jenny, do yourself a favor and
shoplift pick up BEVERLY HILLS 90210 season one on DVD. I think you’ll learn a lot.
Which is exactly what’s happened to this lame attempt to break up ‘OMFG’ into different paragraphs. So I’ll just move on and say how much FUN — oh wait, this might work out after-all — Chuck vs. Serena was. Well, not so much Serena, who for some reason continued to open mysterious and inappropriate gifts in front of her newly blended family. But rather Chuck, who genuinely seemed to enjoy having Serena, Eric, Lilly and even Dan in his penthouse.
Is it possible Chuck’s simply your average misunderstood rich boy who just needs the love of a stable family? Could this dysfunctional Brady Bunch do for Chuck what the Walsh’s did for Dylan McKay? Is there anything 90210 doesn’t teach us?
G: Georgina Sparks
As if you need to guess what the ‘G’ stands for! Considering the affect an off-camera Georgina Sparks had on Serena “I need a Drink” van der Woodsen, this TV Addict is counting down the days until next week’s episode. I have a feeling, yes you guessed it, sparks will fly.
