5.0 out of 5 starsWow!! Can`t believe i am writing this.
Verified purchase
I am a 50 year old male, Give or take a year or two :) and I actually Love this show. I Live in the Gold Coast in Chicago on North LSD ( NO NOT the DRUG,the Road, Lake Shore Drive) so i know what it`s like to be AROUND the filthy rich! I am NOT one of them although i wish i was :) Anyhow.... they got alot of this show right in my opinion and picked perfect cast members.
MOST of The Filthy Rich in Chicago (Not all) are not as Uppity as New yorks Rich are but i am sure the people here "Get it" anyhow. I mean I get it and I am not rich by anyones definition.

The Writers, Characters, the back and forth Banter and basically everything in this show is good. When it`s suppose to be funny it`s very funny. When its suppose to be sad it`s exactly that and so on. It also gives us a look into what it`s like to have all that money and be able to do whatever you want whenever you want but also to know that NO amount of money can get you out of certain Troubles.

That said, My favorite part besides the Characters/Actors is that the show lets you see how "Human" you are whether you are Rich (Chuck) or not (Rufus,Dan and "J") I think they do a very good job getting emotions out of the actors. I mean lets face it... Alot of these Actors know exactly what it is like to be rich so they come into this with a general idea anyhow.

Well.. thats it. I wanted to give it 1 star, I thought about giving it 4 stars but honestly i had to give it 5. I like it that much.

5.0 out of 5 starsADDICTIVE TRASH in New York City
Verified purchase
I kept putting this show off because it just didn't do a thing for me within the first ten minutes of the first episode. None of the actors seemed to have the WOW factor to keep me glued. Here we are almost a year later and the show has arrived on DVD. Me being the bargain shopper that I am, I decided to finally pick this up on DVD solely based on the fact that it was under seventeen dollars. Considering there's only eighteen episodes making each episode a little less than one dollar (Total Bargain). Needless to say, I was bored last night and needed something to watch and this flipped the bill perfectly. I finally gave this show a chance and it was worth it.
Yes, the acting is bad and even on some levels hideous by some of the actors - amateurish acting at its best. Even veteran actors like Matthew Settle and Kelly Rutherford don't really deliver the goods either. It's true what they say - You have to work with what you're given and these actors aren't given the best lines. Nor do I believe that the director of each episodes pushes to get the best of them. But under the cheap exterior of a soap opera with actors in their twenties playing teens, lies a decent show.
The lead actress Blake Lively looks like she is in her thirties during the first few seconds of the show on her train ride into Grand Central Station and pretty much in every episode as well. It bothers me that she doesn't look seventeen, but I can handle it.
The show reminds me a lot of Cruel Intentions for some strange reason. If Manchester Prep School was made into a show, this would be that show.
I feel helpless because the show is almost done with its second season and I am only on episode three of season one.
The show revolves around Serena, the so-called IT GIRL who has disappeared for boarding school only a few months in only to make a surprise return into the city. Her old posse are all in shock when she returns and after much negative influence from Blair is axed from their inner circle. Though the narrator, Kristen Bell, keeps harping on the fact that it revolves around the lives of the rich and privileged in the Upper East Side of Manhattan - this couldn't be the furthest thing from the truth. I adore that the show is shot in Manhattan, but it's rarely on the UES. Many of the scenes are shot around Midtown and under. The Palace Hotel where Serena stays during the first season is in the fifties on Madison Ave. And the UES is not even all that. Everyone that lives in Manhattan knows how untrendy the UES is. It's just a playground for married couples who have children and want to pay overprice fees to send them to private schools instead of public schools.
Leighton Meester (Blair Waldorf) is just a bad actress. So is the young sister (Jenny Humphrey) played by Taylor Momsen. She is beyond atrocious in the acting department. If speaking like a valley girl means acting than I must have that act down pat. But, Ed Westwick (Chuck Bass) was born to play his role. Everything about his overall presence fits the part of the snotty angry rich kid that causes nothing but trouble. He wreaks havoc perfectly.
Overall there is promise for this show. It's packed with beautiful people (for the most part) and the basic premise is an interesting spin. It's like watching celebrities live their lives after they read their own gossip that swirls the headlines and the fury ensues.
Though this show is much like most teen soaps, lacking real talent and most of its stars just don't have the x-factor - its still deliciously devilish fun in the vein of Melrose Place. Kristen Bell narrates this show annoyingly yet fittingly with that darn teen condescending voice of hers. If you need something on TV to keep you entertained since Sex and the City went south after season three, this is the show for you. You know you love it XOXO! Hahaha

Verified purchase
Well I love the show but with school sometimes I miss some episodes. So with having it on DVD, not only can I watch them back to back, I can view the episodes I missed. My only complaint: not enough episodes :p... It's a great show for teens and people in the their 20's. It probably wouldn't appeal to much to the older crowd (at least over 35) and it may have too much inappropriate content for younger than say, 13. Its a great show over all though. You really can relate and connect with the characters and non ever break character. The actors are very good at what they do. They may all be beautiful people but they are also talented people.

Verified purchase
I first started watching this because I was annoyed with how superficial girls at school sounded when they went on about Gossip Girl. Feeling bad that I was calling them superficial behind their backs without having ever seen the show myself, I decided to watch it. At first I wasn't sure I liked it that much, but by the time it came back on TV after the writer's strike.... well lets just say that I was watching religiously by then! I found out that the TV series isn't much like the books at all, for which I am very happy! Even if you despised the Gossip Girl books, I would give the TV series a chance if you like a good chick flick now and then.

5.0 out of 5 starsA Show Worth Gossiping About
Verified purchase
When it comes to guilty pleasures, this one is the juiciest and most fun to watch. Based on the book series by Cecily von Ziegesar, this CW show is narrated by the mysterious title character. Not really so mysteries as it is that of the recogniziable voice of Kritsen Bell, who was both seen and heard on three seasons of "Veronica Mars". This first season of "Gossip Girl" begins with the return of Serena van der Woodsen (played by Blake Lively of "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" movies.) The question of why Serena left in the first place is not answered until near the end of the season. Each of the 18 episodes contained in this DVD set are satisfying viewing because each one of them is a well written, well acted, well done piece of storytelling.
