and omg u made a TR vm?
i will watch it tomorrow. gotta go now
That's one of my fav epis. You should enjoy Seventeen Candles too. I could watch that epi forever. Ahh, the good old days.
Coincidentally, season 5 was on last night here in the UK and it still shocks me how much it has changed. It's really sad cause at the beginning it was unmissable and quirky and different.
Hehe, I know, when I saw that scene for the first time I sat with my mouth hanging open. I shipped Chair from that very moment. The chemistry between Ed and Leighton is electric. Even to this day, I feel they both really come alive when they are acting together.
Okay, let me clarify about Dan. I used to like him, in fact, he was one of my fav characters. I loved his relationship with Serena. It was actually that that got me hooked onto the show in the first place. But GG has changed so much. They dropped the Dan & Serena story from S3 onwards and after that Dan's character changed and not for the better. Even so I could still like him till the writers decided to make him fall in love with Blair and now there are so many 'Dair' fans that bleat on about how they are perfect for one another and blah. I just can't deal with 'Dair'. It's partly because I love 'Chair' so much and partly because I feel there is no chemistry between Penn & Leighton (no offence if anyone likes them, this is my POV). And also because I feel the writers reached a new low with this track. Blair needs someone who is hers and not another of Serena's cast-offs. And also, Dan nowadays just really irritates me. His character has changed so much. I struggle to sympathise with him now.
And then there's the fact I think Chuck is the only one who ever really got her. He brings out the worst in her at times, true, but he recognised that she had that side and he encouraged her to accept it when everyone else was expecting her and wanting her to be this princess. He makes her reckless, but he also understands her. He's always encouraged her even though he doesn't always go about it in a conventional way. And the things he's done for her...well I don't wanna say, cause it'll spoil it for you, but some of the things he did took my breath away. And sure, they have a volatile relationship, but that's what makes them different and special for me. There's an air of danger about them that makes them exciting and passionate. But, yeah, that's just my take on things. And actually, I do still want Dan & Serena to get back together. As I said, I liked their story. It's one of the things I wish they'd get back to.
