Gossip Girl is the new American TV show for teenagers to hit the UK. It is currently being shown on ITV 2 and revolves around the lives of a group of friends living and attending school in New York’s prestigious Upper East Side.
When Serena Van Der Woodsen returns on the scene once again in New York after disappearing in a rush, the gossip mongers are foaming at the bit to find out all the juicy gossip on why she left and what she plans to do now she’s back! The resident gossip columnist known only as Gossip Girl (Voiced by Kirsten Bell) is always one step ahead of the latest information and regularly posts snippets of information on her online blog.
Dan Humphrey (Played by Penn Badgley) has been admiring Serena from afar and can’t believe his luck when he finally manages to get her attention, could this be the start of a new romance on the Upper East Side? Gossip Girl certainly thinks so!
However, certain people aren’t so pleased to see Serena back in town; this includes her one time best friend Blair Waldorf, the Queen Bee of the school whose super rich parents make sure she is always the height of fashion and centre of attention. Enraged to learn about her boyfriend Nate Archibald’s involvement with Serena can these two ever make things right between them again?
This show is one of the hottest things on TV right now, the characters themselves are all gorgeous, the fashion and technology are constantly changing and surprising us with new clothes, accessories and gadgets and the mix of humour, fun and drama really seems to have worked its charm.
My favourite characters have to be Serena who is played brilliantly by the beautiful Blake Lively, and although it’s hard to believe her age in this (She’s clearly older than the character she’s portraying) she has a certain something about her that makes her instantly likeable as a lead character. I also find Chuck Bass (Played by Ed Westwick) growing on me with every episode, he’s the resident ‘bad boy’ and your classic spoiled rich kid, but could he be changing his ways? We’ll have to wait and see.
If you enjoy teen drama’s or soaps then Gossip Girl will definitely appeal to you. You can catch it on ITV 2 and where US gossip blogger Perez Hilton has bagged himself his own column talking about the show.
Definitely one to keep your eye on, it’s going to be huge!
