Why is it that I love to watch a show about snobby teenagers in high school? I can not relate at all to their high school experience; I am very far removed from my own high school experience and yet I am totally enamored with Gossip Girl. The plot is really quite terrible; the acting is far worse, but once a week for forty minutes (because I can only watch this show on DVR as watching commercials on a 'live' viewing is pure torture due to ALL the cliff hangers) I am completely captivated and quite frankly feel less intelligent post-show. My challenge to you: Watch it and try to not become hooked by the ridiculous turns of fate / plot. And if you aren't hooked, you are probably just lying to yourself.
You know you love me.
