As September draws closer, madami spoilers, set photos, and potential storylines are being leaked to the public for what is to come for our paborito Upper East Siders. While some look potentially promising, others make you stop and wonder "What meds are the GG writers on?!" It seems as though they're attempting to boost ratings sa pamamagitan ng any means possible (European Royals, Elizabeth Hurley, or visits to L.A. ring any bells?) Personally, I would rather refer back to the greatness of the earlier Gossip Girl seasons and recomend the producers bring back some much loved favorites...
1) Nate having a REAL story line
I mean honestly, when was the last time Nate had a storyline that didn't involve dating the newest socialite or hooking up with a bunch of walang tiyak na layunin girls?
2) Serena's bubby attitude & admirable confidence
During the first season of GG, Serena appeared to be on a quest for redemption and reformation from her nakaraan partygirl ways when she returned to New York. However, whenever it seems like S is on the brink of changing, something seems to keep draging her down (usually guys or something from her past.) I can understand ipinapakita viewers the consequences one might have to deal with because of nakaraan behavior, but come on! The girl's been through alot, yet the writers never ipakita her maturing. In fact, Season 4 was my least paborito season for Serena's character.
3) Chuck's signature scarf
I mean come on, who can resist Season 1 Chuck bass with his infamous scarf?
4) Dan's Season 1 & 2 Haircut
I pag-ibig Dan, and although he's one of my paborito characters, one of the tanong that kept running through my mind with him during season 4 was "You've got to be fucking kidding me with that hair, right?" I mean Penn is a hottie, but they seriously need to give him a haircut similar to his season 1 or season 2 style.
5) Blair's Wardrobe & Headband Collection
It seems like lately Blair's style is less "Modern Audrey Hephburn" and madami "I think I'm gonna dress older than my Mom and wear a lot of boring, netral colors" and I can't even remember the last time I saw reyna B rock one her glamourous headbands.
6) Better Lighting
I'm not sure what's wrong with the lighting at the GG studio, but the dark & dreary lighting in half the scenes certainly isn't helping the atmosphere there.
Otherwise known as the combination of the two words Nate & confused. Throughout Seasons 1 & 2 Nate would occasionally offer many "WTF?!" facial expressions that can only be descibed as natefused.
8) Blair's Eating Disorder
Although I would never wish an eating disorder upon anyone, i think it's almost wrong to bring it up in season 1 and then completly dismiss it in the other seasons. The writers make it seem as if it never happened, but it's a part of Blair's character and (in my opinion) should probably be adressed later on in the series.
It seems as though Gossip Girl has Nawawala some of the initial edge that made it so popular in the first place. Think back to when it first premiered and so many people descibed it as "scandelous" and "juicy." Perhaps bringing back some of the witty dioloigue, sensational conflicts, and bitchy dynamic could reinstate that beloved reputation.
10) The Mystery Behind Gossip Girl
Remember when everyone was constantly wondering who Gossip Girl, the mystery blogger really was? Our beloved Non Judging Breakfast Club even attempted a take down in season 2. Now it seems as though no one really gives a shit who GG is, they only use her blog to cyber stalk their ex bfs (Blair and Serena.....)
Even though I doubt most of these will return in future Gossip Girl seasons, a girl can dream right?
