I didn’t realize that this week was going to be the SERIES finale of “Gossip Girl.” I don’t think I’ve been this sad about a television series ending since “Sex and the City” and “Friends” both wrapped in 2004. “Gossip Girl” has kind of been like my “Sex and the City”—well, at least in the sense of its closet, and the romance with The City. I will really miss the fashion. Fashion has a way of stirring my imagination in a way that makes me want to turn my garage into an incredible circus.
The plot of "Gossip Girl" has become a bit too insanely wacky, and I guess when that happens, it’s time for a show to end. Anyone remember “7th Heaven’s” series finale? That has to have been the worst series finale in the history of television—it was wacky, overly cheesy, and did I mention WACKY? By that point I had stopped watching the show, but I tuned into the finale just to see how they were going to end it. All I remember was everyone getting on a giant bus or RV, and Stephen Collins looking and sounding like he was off his rocker. I swear I thought that bus was going to fly into the sky like Sandy and Danny did at the end of “Grease.”
Anyhow, I will miss Blair, and I will miss Serena’s closet. And actually, I'll miss Blair's closet, too. I suppose this is good timing for me, personally, as now I have eight months of a strict Bar prep schedule ahead of me, because I AM going to get lawyered next fall. I will also miss looking at Chase Crawford’s unfairly beautiful face and perfect hair. And I will miss Blair and Chuck’s twisted, passionate love story. I will miss Chuck, too--I really grew fond of him in the end. Not to mention, he had a pretty fantastic wardrobe, too! I will also miss Lilly and her impeccably groomed, Kennedy-esque, picture perfect on the outside, disaster on the inside of a woman. But mostly, I will miss Blair, and I will miss Serena’s closet. And Blair's closet. Blair was such a well-written character--interesting and human.
I think it’s good that they’re ending the series at this point though. There’s too much scheming for the plot to get better, but they haven’t yet ruined the show. The unfortunate thing is that the CW has piled up on fantasy/superhero like series, and it’s a bit overkill, in my opinion. They still have “90210” and “Hart of Dixie” though. I think “90210” will also bid adieu soon, though I can't say I'll be torn over that one. And I only watch “Hart of Dixie,” because you can’t help but love Wade.
Perhaps it’s time for another visit to the Big Apple. I do love that city. It’s magnificent!
For now though, it's back to preparing for my "Español para abogados" exam.
BIG LOVE & HUGS
