Great twists and turns,
This review is from: Gossip Girl: Season 5 (DVD)
This season of Gossip Girl provides new twists. The spotlight seems to be on Blair instead of Serena. Serena's character kind of gets pushed on the shelf.
You can see her struggling to find her identity. There is another side to Lily that you see in this season. It seems she's money hungry, angry and unforgiving which
explains why her relationship to her husband is on the rocks. To make matters worse, Serena is turning into a younger version of her mother. She doesn't find
any love this season. Nate gets on my nerves. He falls in love with pretty much any girl he lays eyes on. Plus he sleeps with a girl he can't stand just to get
some information while having another girlfriend. He's cute but his character is not likeable. Then what really kind of makes you upset is that the Blair and Chuck relationship is dead and
she's carrying on a romance with----I will not spoil the show for you. This new couple is just so mismatched. The only thing I can think of is to please put Blair and Chuck back
together. Blair is reckless and makes every bad choice possible in her early adult hood. Georginia is back causing all kinds of trouble. Her husband who is a house husband supports her and all
you can think of is boy this guy is a wimp. He needs to get a job. He just lets Georginia walk all over him. More secrets are revealed about Serena's family.
Besides the bad decisions each character makes on season five, the show still hooks you. I give it a five because I was hooked. Some of the material in the show is offensive but
I try to ignore it. I hope in Season Six people finally grow up. This gives rich people and celebrities a bad reputation. All of the characters to me come across as spoiled. They sleep around left and right and there is no consequence to their actions. I would like to see a show where someone gets AIDS or a terrible STD to show the young people these things can happen if you sleep around. Most of the young people will be watching this show and will kind of think this is how your suppose to live. I take the show for what its worth-entertainment that can't be taken seriously.
