He's baaaaaaack

Well, last Thanksgiving Nate’s dad went to jail, and Dan’s dad is obviously alive and kicking and married to Lily.  So who does that leave?  Well, two other gentlemen be returnin’ and they are going to turn the town upside down.

Gossip Girl, Tame & Lame November 10, 2009

Last night’s Gossip Girl involved way too much Jenny.  Thus, I saw far too much platinum weave and racoon eye makeup.  But enough about the girl who once played sweet little Cindy Lou Who in Jim Carrey’s version of The Grinch… let’s talk about the threesome!

 

Oh wait, why bother?  It was not the delicious juicy scandal that it was made out to be.  Parents these days — they’re not very bright.  What they don’t realize is that any kissing threesome their teenager sees on TV has more than likely also been seen by that kid in person.  Oh hell it may have even involved their kid.  So parents, if you’re reading this: BEWARE.  Your kids are not as naive as you think.  They’re just little sociopaths waiting for a chance to fully blossom.

Did You Know… October 15, 2009

…that Leave it to Lamas had a season premiere of 2 million viewers?  Before you think your eyes have gone spotty and you’re reading things wrong, I repeat: 2 MILLION viewers. 

 

I’ve never heard anything so tragic in my whole life.  That followed The Girls Next Door, who got 2.2 million.  Somehow Gossip Girl only has a little over a million but those two piles of doodoo got over 2 million?  I give up.

 

Is Georgina Gone Yet? Please? October 12, 2009

I have had about enough of Georgina Sparks, so if this is truly the last we’ll see of her this season, I will count my blessings.  I’m not a big fan of the guest star business they’ve had going on lately either (hello, Joanne Garcia as Bitchy Bree Buckley and Hilary Duff as the too-nice movie star cum college student Olivia).  Next week looks to be juicy, as Nate and Serena band together to rescue Carter from the throes of Buckley hell.

The 2 characters that make this show worthwhile always have been and always will be Chuck and Blair.  I can’t rave enough about what a fabulous TV couple they are.  Snide, cocky, clever and quippy, and they do it all in deliciously expensive clothes.  But enough about my love of Bluck, let’s talk about what else happened.

My Cable’s Back!!! October 6, 2009

Yesterday was a bad day.  My cable and internet went down for 12 hours — yes, 12 hours.  I had to go to my mom’s to watch Gossip Girl (it was kinda lame, and Tyra Banks is probably the worst actress to ever be on that show).  I missed the finale of Rachel Zoe Project altogether (got to catch that tonight) and at 10pm I was finally able to watch Sunday night’s episode of Dexter.

 

But tonight is going to be better, I can already feel it.  The Hills but not The City (Roxy and Olivia frighten me), Flipping Out, and the rerun of Rachel Zoe Project.  No DWTS or Biggest Loser, but I can promise I’ll be putting up a Biggest Loser recap courtesy of guest author Mini Diva, who gladly fills my shoes in that department.

 

Also, now that I have Showtime, I have to catch up on Weeds and start watching Californication.  I’m hearing that the latter is a winner.

Last night’s Gossip Girl reminded me of the many reasons why I came to fall in love with this show in the first place.  The twists!  The turns!  Georgina melodrama!  Here’s some of the best squabbles and foils of the evening:

1.  Carter Baizen is set up by Blair and Chuck so Serena will stop dating him.  After Carter helped S ruin his business meeting, Chuck was oh-so-happy to participate.

 

2.  Meanwhile, however, Georgina is causing trouble for Bluck (that’s their couple moniker).  She gives Blair a fake invitation for a collegitate secret society and an assignment to buy an old portrait up for auction.  Problem is, her friend works at the office of some guy Chuck is trying to woo into doing business with him.  The secretary convinces Chuck that he also needs to buy the portrait, and then the bidding war begins.  Chuck always wins in the end, though.
