we have a thread about twilight, so let's have a thread about gossip girl! what do you think of this series? i first saw the books three years ago. hated them because i knew they were trashy. hated them more because their trashiness was exactly what would made them popular. i read the first three chapters and felt nauseated. recently, i decided to skim through the first book in case i've changed my mind (after all, if it was so popular there must be something good about it, right?). i haven't. now that there's the tv series, almost everyone has heard of it. one of the main things that worries me is how the characters' behavior are going to affect the younger generation. i must say i agree with america ferrera about this kind of shows (and therefore books of similar nature). as you can see, i'm trying to have a let's-bash-gossip-girl thread rather than an objective discussion about the book. anyone who openly disagrees with me should be very wary about sleeping with their windows open. yay!
