XOXO

Of course you know about Gossip Girl.
Who doesn't, right?

For those who don't, Gossip Girl is the latest hit of THE CW
featuring New York upper east side high school students 
caught in teenage issues - drugs, sex, homosexuality, 
alcohol, love and the list goes on.

Starred by the hottest actors and actresses such as
Blake Lively, Penn Badgley, Chace Crawford, and Leighton Meester.

To start, I really didn't have the interest with the series.
I thought, before, that it wouldn't match the success of 
Sex and the City, Grey's Anatomy, or Prison Break.

But one boring weekend, I was bedazzled by the series' unique
treatment matched with gorgeous actors that stirred my 
sleeping brain cells - stressed, at that.

Maybe because of the American youth culture,
you could hardly imagine how these high school students
experience problems that, in the Philippines, only adults do.

However, on the brighter side, this lured me more to finish the first season.

It was not at all bad; it was even better than I expected.
It may not be your Carrie Bradshaw or Michael Scowfield,
but it's your next big thing considering the young cast.

I love Leighton Meester's bitchy yet lovable
character as Blair Waldorf. With her attitude, you'll love to hate her,
yet hate to love her.

Serena Van Woodsen (Blake Lively) and Dan Humphrey's (Penn Badgley)
love affair adds spice to the series especially the latter's innocent yet
aggressive character - his intelligence and wit totally attracts me, and that was
so gay of me. The twists and turns of their TV relationship 
makes the series more interesting to watch. 

Chace Crawford, the cutie hunk next door, stars as Nate Archibald who's 
involved in a relationship with Blair but is in love with Serena. However, during 
the first season, his character ended as interesting as the others.

Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick), the richest of them all, contributes to
an even more interesting Gossip Girl first season. His playboy yet reliable 
character makes girls watching the series fall in love with him.
On second thought, maybe it's his wealth. I don't know.

And who would forget Gossip Girl?
The "god" of the series. She practically knows every little thing
that's happening around upper east side without revealing who
she really is - a well-thought and effective mnemonic device that
makes it more appealing to watch.

I should applaud the rest of the cast who are not just supporting
actors but totes up to my high expectations for the second season.

Kudos to Gossip Girl's first season success - though the second is
now running in the US. 

I cant wait to have a copy. Prepare the way Quiapo. =)

You know you love me.

XOXO,
Gossip Girl

It's high time you watch GG Ms. Toni.
I think you'll fall in love with the series.
Well, not as much as how you did with Twilight. =)

But it's quite entertaining to watch.
Especially when you find yourself in the couch with nothing to do on a weekend.
