Gossip Girl S03E12: If Serena Bleeds, Serena Can Be Killed

You know what this show needs? A good death. The death of one of is principal actors, too, none of this Bart Bass nonsense. The best part is, there are so many characters to choose from! In an ideal world, you would kill all of them. "But then you wouldn't have a show." Exactly! But,… More »

Gossip Girl S03E11: Really? A Thanksgiving Special?

You're kidding, right, Gossip Girl? So you have completely given up, right? Just let us all know if you have completely given up, because I think a lot of us would like to give up, too. There is nothing more irrelevant than a holiday special that airs AFTER the holiday. As if this show wasn't… More »

Gossip Girl S03E10: The Play Is The Huh?

Obviously, this show has become ridiculous. It used to be about students at an elite private high school, their social and sexual manipulations, and handbags or whatever. That made sense. It had an internal logic to it. What is this show about now? Serena Van Der Woodsen is working for and maybe fucking a congressman? More »

Gossip Girl S03E09: That’s Your Threesome

"Have you been so busy that you've forgotten what time of year it is?" Gossip Girl asks at the top of the episode. Uh, no? No, I have not. It is fall. It is a week and a half after Halloween. It is two and a half weeks before Thanksgiving. I know all that, and… More »

Gossip Girl S03E08: Vote Or Die Or Just Die

At the end of this week's episode, they showed the teaser for next week's episode, and it is going to feature a threesome? Perfect. They should use this show in junior high school classrooms, to teach children about life. But more importantly: what is going on this season? It is so disjointed! Things were so… More »

Albert Hammond Jr. On Gossip Girl

This week's Halloween episode was even more nonsensical than usual, so we nearly blocked out its cameo from the 1,400 year-old, anemic ghost of the Strokes' guitarist. Watch him perform "In Transit" at the opening of Chuck's speakeasy. More »

Gossip Girl S03E07: I’m Dreaming Of A White Halloween

It's Halloween, and you know what that means: Kiss pumpkins! Wait, what? The episode opens with Rufus carving an entire series of Kiss pumpkins. WHY DON'T YOU FOCUS ON RAISING YOUR CHILDREN, RUFUS? Later, Rufus will dress up like the Ramones. Ugh, we get it. Music. The funny thing is how the writers don't eve… More »

Gossip Girl S03E06: Chuck Bass Is Blah-Curious

Blair has a bad dream based on All About Eve. Sure she does. It's 2009, it just makes sense that a college freshman would have a dream in which she is the Bette Davis character in a 60 year old movie about the price of fame and vanity. She wakes up in a panic and… More »

Who Should Die On TV?

Yesterday, on NY Mag's Vulture Blog, it was reported that Alan Ball is planning on killing a character in the third season of True Blood. Vulture then offered a poll to readers of which character they would most like to see killed off: Bill, Tara, or Andy Bellefleur. D) All of the above. FINAL… More »

Sonic Youth On Gossip Girl

Remember when Rufus' band opened for Sonic Youth? Well, SY returned the favor last night by playing an acoustic "Star Power" at his wedding to Lily ("Antenna" was heard earlier in the episode). Kim Gordon officiated the ceremony! Nate hates Sonic Youth! Watch the recap at Videogum. More »

Gossip Girl S03E05: Rufus And Lily Are No Jim And Pam. Also: Sonic Youth?

If there was one week to miss so far this season, it was last week. Hilary Duff? Tyra Banks? Come on. I mean, I know this show is a make-believe dystopian nightmare for children, but one celebrity guest at a time, please. My favorite part of the whole episode was when Lily finally came back… More »

Gossip Girl: Open Thread

It is hard to tell if you guys are even watching this season. Whatever, I ain't care. ASHER ROTH LOVES COLLEGE. In any case, I have not been able to watch this week's very special episode (Tyra Banks! Hilary Duff!) yet (it's weird that that aren't any TVs in LA, you'd think there would be… More »

Gossip Girl: Children Take Their Scotch Neat, You Know That

Blair, who uses gloves to turn dormitory door knobs (of course she does), walks in on Dan and Georgina up in each other's gutz. CAUGHT! Dan is like "I was just in here to get a book called Our Bodies Ourselves, but suddenly all of the buttons on my shirt broke and I fell face… More »

Gossip Girl: The College Years

Whoa. Whatever facts about high school may have been gently fudged during the first two seasons of Gossip Girl (almost all of the facts, covered in fudge), they're going even further with their depiction of college, obliterating generations of human experience in service of a nonsense make-believe fantasy world. Like, I'm willing to believe that… More »

Gossip Girl: It’s Not A Real Soap Opera Until Someone Gets Amnesia

Wow, the summer really is over. TIME TO LEAVE THE HAMPTONS. Or whatever. Are the Hamptons gauche now? I don't know. TIME TO LEAVE THE MOON. Old money is all about summering on the moon now. Of course, the season kicks off with a welcoming voice over from our very own Gossip Girl, whose "inbox… More »

Thurston Moore Talks Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl returns 9/14, but you knew that because you love Gossip Girl and reading about Gossip Girl on blogs. (Season 3 spoilers here.) Thurston Moore also loves Gossip Girl. Last month we reported that an upcoming episode features Sonic Youth playing "Starpower" at a party for Rufus and Lily, the world's best… More »

Dude Who Plays Rufus Humphrey Is Just As Bad As Rufus Humphrey!

In yesterday's "A Night Out With" column in the Sunday Styles section of the New York Times, they spent a night out with Matthew Settle, the actor who plays Rufus Humphrey on Gossip Girl. On the show, Rufus is a self-absorbed, criminally-negligent father with a superlame emo-streak. Rufus is just awful. And in real… More »
