This week’s Netflix Obsession is “Gossip Girl”.
I think that it was the first TV show that I started watching when I got Netflix. I was hooked right from the first episode, it was different to anything that I had seen before.
A group of hyper-privileged Manhattan private-school kids seem to get away with everything. Except an anonymous blogger is watching their every move.
It’s so hard being able to describe this show, as it’s a mix of reality and drama but it can also be quite suspenseful. The storylines range from small gossips, to big life changing and life threatening problems. The whole gossip girl website that creates a lot of the drama is one of the reasons you want to keep watching, so that you can finally find out who really is Gossip Girl. It means that you end up rooting for some of the characters, or find it devastating when they then end up on a blast.
The characters themselves are all well created, each have their own problems and family lifestyles and different dynamics with all of the other characters. Watching them is what is enjoyable about this TV show, is seeing who is going to fall out with who, whether they’re going to finally date, whether someone is going to successfully ruin someone’s life.
It’s such a classic Teen show that is so easy to enjoy, and the episodes just fly by.
