I used to stay awake till the wee hours, waiting for the episodes of Gossip Girl to be uploaded after broadcasting from abc TV station in United States. I basically downloaded season 4 and 5 through torrents right after finishing the three previous seasons (www.thepiratebay.org), that’s how much I love this show.
For those who are curious enough to know about the show, Gossip Girl is an American teen drama television series based on the book series of the same name written by Cecily Von Ziegesar. It is mostly based on the lives of five teenagers; Serena Van Der Woodsen (Blake Lively) the lead actress, Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) Serena’s BFF, Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) Blair’s on and off true lover, Nathaniel Archibald (Chace Crawford) who has a very interesting character in this show since he was Serna’s AND Blair’s ex, and Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley), the lonely boy whose first and true love was and remained Serena Van Der Woodsen. These teenagers live at the Upper East Side where drama never ends and gossip never stops, except Dan who lives in Brooklyn and appears in the first season as the outsider who falls deeply in love with Blake’s character.
On the other hand, there’s one person who literally stalks these teenagers and made their news and updates her one and only interest: The Gossip Girl. In every season, Gossip Girl never reveals her name even though the Upper East Siders attempted to unveil her true identity and take her down for several times but with no luck. Gossip Girl has a strange relationship with those Upper East Siders and with the lonely boy, she keeps texting them whenever she spots something not right or dangerous. However, not every text that she sends or blog about were true because some of the sources that she got were not trustworthy.
The American teen drama is not just about stupid gossips who people crave for, it is about facts and real experiences occurring in our real lives with our families and friends and best friends, it is about a trust game we learn how to play through our cruel experiences, every mistrust that we face is followed by a payback time which is probably exaggerated in the show but it is also happening in our daily lives.
To recap some of the moments of the show, here are some my favorite quotes that I missed the most:
