Gossip Girl, the Good and the Bad
Delighted that Lady Gaga was on “Gossip Girl” this week, though I would have preferred it if she’d had a speaking part and didn’t just perform one of her songs. I think that if I weren’t going to be me, and weren’t going to be Rachel Maddow, I might like being Lady Gaga.
Otoh the game of switching relationships between characters on “Gossip Girl” is starting to make my head spin. First Dan was with Serena, then with Olivia, and now it looks like he’s going to be with Vanessa. And Serena is starting to disappoint me. She’s a nice person, probably the character I most identify with, but she’s switching guys so fast — Dan, Carter, Trip, Nate, Trip, not even counting her European stuff over the summer. I found myself making a mental list of the guys she hasn’t been with yet. There aren’t that many. And she was also trying to find her father, then the show dropped that storyline completely for several episodes, and then started talking about it again, then dropped it again … maybe Dan Humphrey can get an after-school gig as a script doctor.
