Consistency.

That is something that the second half of the season failed miserably at maintaining. Story arcs started and ended abruptly and were hard to keep up with or even understand. The first half of the season was definitely solid. I would even dare say that episodes 1-14 were better than all of season one with episodes like "Summer Kind of Wonderful", "The Dark Night", "Pret-A-Poor J", "Oh Brother Where Bart Thou" and "In the Realm of The Basses".

As a devoted fan of Gossip Girl I have to say that the dynamic duo Chuck and Blair played by the AMAZING British actor Ed Westwick and Leighton Meester were the downfall and the salvation of the show. Westwick and Meester's on-screen chemistry is so tangible you can cut it with a knife. They are very powerful actors separately but when they are together it is explosive. Westwick and Meester basically carry the show on their shoulders throughout the whole season. Chuck and Blair is what makes you want to continue to watch but the writers and producers persistent narcissistic tendency to keep them apart is what ruined the second half of the season. It almost seems like you are watching a different show when you get to episode 2.21. By this moment in the season most if not all of the characters are written completely out of character and their behaviors are erratic and hard to understand all for the sake of an "OMFG Moment".

I continued to watch until the end because I am a masochist and will probably watch season 3 as well. But I was very disappointed with the second half of the season. I purchased the DVD just because the first half of the season was great and I can't buy it separately.

I'm probably going to be in a minority here, but more and more I became unhappy with GOSSIP GIRL in its second season. It isn't the characters. The show has a nice ensemble cast, nearly all of them nicely acted by the performers portraying them.

To explain why I have been increasingly discontent with the show, I need to call attention to one of the reasons I have enjoyed Josh Schwartz's two other shows. Both THE O.C. and CHUCK are character based serials. Both tell stories about how characters change and evolve over multiple episodes. For instance, a conflict between Summer and Seth on THE O.C. might develop and get resolved over a 14 or 15 episode arc. Story arcs for any of the major characters would extend over whole seasons. Much the same is true with CHUCK. The friendship between Chuck and Casey, for instance, took pretty much two full seasons to develop.

Now, contrast this with GOSSIP GIRL. More and more GOSSIP GIRL has become a show for viewers with attention deficit disorder. My guess is that the main inspiration for the increasingly shorter and shorter story arcs is the CW. This isn't the kind of change in a show that producers like to make. I blame the CW. Basically networks hate story arcs. They absolutely abhor shows have complex story arcs that extend over 7 or 8 or 9 episodes. This tension has been a part of prime time television ever since HILL STREET BLUES popularized story arcs on American television. But the network decreed that there could be only six separate arcs at a time, that preferably no arc would extend beyond six weeks, and at least one arc would be resolve each week.

Dedicated fans of shows generally love story arcs.

A friend had stopped by one day with season one and I was immediately hooked! I burned through the entire season in two days and jumped online to grab season 2. Which by the way was even better!! If you love The OC this blows it away. I love the cast and the story line is just unbelievable enough without crossing the line of cheesy. Plus I love seeing all the clothing, shoes and bags!

I bought the first season before even seeing the show on television first and i couldn't take a break to sleep, this season was the exact same. More twists, and the quality of the dvds was perfect. I would recommend this product to anyone who likes this show.

I love coming-of-age series, movies, plays and books, so Gossip Girl is right up my alley. If you like drama and teen-focused coming-of-age stories, then you will probably also like Gossip Girl.

The dvd's are all in working order, no problems there, but the dvd case arrived broken. I'm not too happy about it but frankly life is too hectic to take the time to rectify the problem.

I had never seen an episode of this show but I decided to buy Seasons 1 and 2 of Gossip Girl since they were so cheap on Amazon.com. Now, I am hooked! I love the characters, the storylines, the music, the city and the fashion. Can't wait for Season 3 to come out on DVD!

As a 30-year-old, I sometimes feel a bit ashamed to admit that I'm an avid Gossip Girl fan. Check out this DVD and you may soon share my secret shame :). Although it's a show about teens, it's alternately catty, funny, heartbreaking, and clever, and always entertaining. The actors may be young, but they know their stuff, and the writing is smart enough to make this interesting enough for those of us who are way past high school. If you're looking for pure, engrossing entertainment, check out this show (and the first season)!
