    good news!

    I'm actually enjoying this show more than other new show so far. It's one of the few new shows (and maybe the only one) that I really look forward to seeing each week.

    What's the CW? ;)

    I never heard of this show. Perhaps I should look. I'd set up a recording on the net if my series 3 wasn't dead.

    CW was the old WB.

    Good news. Not my favorite new show of the season, but it's definitely up there. It's a fun show with which to kick back with a glass or two of wine :)

    Can I ask if the second two episodes came across as pretenious as the first one? I had a mild interest in it.. but there was a chord that it struck with me that was a bit off putting so I did not watch it again.

    In what way?

    In that the most all of the characters come very wealthy families in New York and that the whole show seems to occur at some sort of fancy party of some type?

    If so, then no. It's the same. Same characters. And so far, most everything happens at some fancy party.

    :)

    I love it.

    also enjoying it. I saved 3 episodes and watched them all at once and it is a keeper. Fills part of the void left by The O.C., Veronica Mars and Gilmore Girls (only part.....)

    Yes. I agree. I needed the teen drama in my life. :D

    R.I.P. The O.C., Veronica Mars and Gilmore Girls...

    Gilmore Girls really wasn't a teen drama in the way O.C., 90210, Dawson's Creek, etc. were teen dramas.

    Can't get into it, but maybe now that they know they are staying for the season it will get better. And if they keep repeating on Sundays as that is the day my tivo catches it.

    Wednesday is a busy day on my TV -- something like eight shows being recorded. This is one of them. Glad to see it got a full season to spread its wings.

    I like this but I don't really understand why. Glad to see it has been picked up.

    No... but season 2 & 3 *kinda* had a little drama.

    But you are right, jsmeeker, Gilmore Girls wasn't in the same league.

    Gilmore Girls will probably stand the test of time a little better than 90210, Dawson's Creek and The O.C. Tough to rank them though, never watched Dawsons but really enjoyed the others.

    Gilmore Girls was real, the rest seemed to grow more out there as the storylines played out. As far as Gossip Girl, I will continue to watch and am glad for the Sunday airings too, I need them!

    This is the biggest surprise for me this season. I didn't figure I would get through the first episode, but so far I like it.
