Obviously, Gossip Girl will not be winning any awards for its script or acting any time soon. The dialogue is clunky, the plot unrealistic and predictable and the acting is, at times, painful to watch. However, Gossip Girl doesn't try to succeed in any of these areas. What it does try to do, and what it completely succeeds at, is entertaining the viewer.

I absolutely love watching Gossip Girl. It's addictive. I need to know what's going to happen next, who's dating who, what scandal will Gossip Girl uncover next. It is plainly an addictive show! I'm only midway through Season 1, yet I can already say I am obsessed with this show.

Many of the actors (I'm looking at you, Chace Crawford) are hilariously bad, their stiff performances almost unbearable. I also find Serena and Nate to be incredibly bland, one-dimensional characters. However, I find Blair, Chuck and Jenny very interesting to watch. Penn Badgley as Dan Humprey surprised me with his very fair acting abilities. Though many of the plots are very dry and predictable, just as many story lines are redeeming with their suspense and creativity.

Gossip Girl is not a technically fabulous show. What it is, however, is enjoyable, and this is why it has won over so many viewers. Cast aside your preconceptions about this show and you will find yourself enjoying it.

Usually, I'm not a huge fan of something like Gossip Girl, but it seems that it has become a trend for me to enjoy shows like these. First, The Hills and now this.

At first, I watched GG just to make fun of it. The drama that these young and spoiled (but i must say handsome and beautiful) people have to deal with seemed so distant from my own life experience. But, the more I watched the show, the more I got hooked, to the point that Gossip Girl became my addiction (I know, that sounds sad, especially considering the fact that I'm a guy!). Though, I have to say that the reasons for this are pretty logical or at least I hope they are.

First of all, I like the setting. Glamorous-New-York-type surrounding are something that attracts me. I've never been in New York, or in USA for that matter, but that is exactly why I like Gossip Girl.

And second, I like the middle class characters in this show - Dan, Vanessa, Rufus Humphrey and so on. Especially Dan with his adventurous, almost Peter Parker type lifestyle and, of course, his huge... emmm... bookshelf.

Currently I'm trying to get rid of my addiction. We'll see what comes out of it.

In reading the reviews already posted on the show, I'm a genuinely confused by how strongly negative so many of them are, and I'm wondering what kind of shows those people watch... Gossip Girl is a helluva lot better than almost any other show I've ever seen. No plot? People *die,* and fall in love, and run away... and come to grips with major issues people of "this" generation actually have to deal with: sex, eating disorders, drugs, drinking, bullying, cyberspace, parents acting like teenagers and teenagers acting like adults, class issues...

I found Gossip Girl to be as enchanting and engaging as the Harry Potter series; It's a little like a fairy tale, only slightly more relevant. As I understand it, audiences were initially underwhelmed and unimpressed by Gossip Girl, until teenagers who were actually living that lifestyle (on the Upper East Side) started validating and defending it. As a graduate from one of the most selective schools in the country (boarding, college, or otherwise), I *know* this lifestyle, through friends more than personal experience, but it's really refreshing to see likable characters dealing with issues I see my peers experiencing.

The whole show is incredibly romantic, with gorgeous shots, color-coordinated sets and costuming, hair/makeup, not to mention the drama and romance of the actual content (characters/plot). I also really appreciated the effort put into staying ahead of fashion trends and music (the music was *awesome* in this show). I also love that everything was shot on location, too many shows/movies take place in New York but are shot in LA... it definitely makes a difference.

Someone said Gossip Girl could have worked as a movie; I have no idea what they were thinking. It would have made a terrible movie! It's meant to go on... You're supposed to fall in love with the characters and watch them grow up and eventually find happiness and success despite all kind of personal, never-ending strife. That's how life works...

Back to the people who wrote super negative reviews... What shows are you watching?? Crime or detective shows- horribly unrealistic and with no coherent plot or character development from episode to episode? Reality TV? Cartoons? What are you comparing this show to? (For reference, I loved Dollhouse, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Downton Abbey, New Girl, House... diverse, intelligently written and well-produced.)

I watched this show first time few months ago when airing started in Croatia. I got hooked. It's a guilty pleasure. You have that sorta glamor and that little over the top drama. It has so many twists and turns, you can try to guess what will happen next, but you never know. In one moment you can hate one character because of something, and in the other moment that one is great, but someone else is now the one you should hate. Season Finale of Season 1 airs tomorrow in Croatia. Me and my best friend, we always watch Gossip Girl while texting each other. It's a great show for all the ones that love the guilty pleasure kind of shows. I think a guilty pleasure show is a show where there is a lots of drama and you get hooked easily, and you can't stop following it.
