Gossip Girl, 2.15: Gone with the Will

It saddens me to say this but I think I might be over Gossip Girl. I'll give it till the end of this season then I'm pretty sure I will drop it from my viewing list.

I hate it at the moment. I am bored with Blair and Chuck (both separately and together), I loathe Serena, the entire Humphrey family is made of fail, and the characters I *do* like (Vanessa and Nate) are barely in it. My current favourite character is Uncle Jack, whose side I was on throughout the entire episode, because there is no. Fucking. Way. A seventeen year old should be running a corporation, and Jack actually deserved the job. Yet Gossip Girl seemed to be painting Jack as the villain and Chuck as the person we were supposed to sympathise with. Uh, no. Chuck should be in school, and maybe Josh Shwartz should hire some writers who aren't too ancient to remember what it was like to be a teenager.

Don't even get me started on the retarded mystery baby storyline, and the show's weird insistence that it means the van der Woodsens and the Humphreys are now blood relatives who "share DNA" (WTAF?). It's not that I expect realism from Gossip Girl, but didn't it used to be quite smart and fun?

And then there are all the pathetic attempts at keeping the three main ships interesting. It's as if the writers were told that once a couple gets together they become boring (which, sorry, no. It is actually possible to write stories about couples that don't suck. Or better yet, write stories about individual characters that aren't about their relationship. Clearly this is beyond the GG creative team so I'll say it again: HIRE NEW WRITERS). This means that they never let any of the couples get together for real, yet they can't move past the idea that C&B, S&M and L&R are MFEO OMG, so they contrive bullshit repetitive obstacle after bullshit repetitive obstacle, and I've had enough. I'm bored. I can't even remember the last time I enjoyed a storyline on this show.
