@Anonymous I was going to make a similar statement as you did regarding Chuck and Lily. I think Chuck should leave Blair alone for now and focus on other things. He and Serena should move back with Lily and spend time with family. I think being closer to Lily and Serena would do more good for chuck's progression, instead of worrying about Blair (because she's obviously confused). I just love the scenes between Chuck and Lily, and I miss those adorable scenes between him and Serena in Seasons 1 and 2.

@Ace Josh Safran is an incompetent hack, you can tell by the way he immaturely behaves in interviews/previews, it's pathetic.

@pty I love it, we share the same opinions on the show, even though we don't agree on the shipping preferences.

@Ace Gossip Girl feels way more cartoonish than Gargoyles.

@ALF Exactly, they should've developed the characters, not repeat the on/ff crap ad nauseum.

@junior It's not about plausibility, these writing is terrible, these characters are getting ruined with horrible writing/characterizations.

@momo1983 Chuck should move on, Blair's not worth it, she needs to grow up. The Lily/Chuck bonding scenes are much better than the melodramatic bs that comes up every time Blair makes some stupid excuse.

Most definitely checkout Gargoyles. The entire series is on YT. Fair warning, it is a cartoon, but don't let that dissway you. It's just as rich and vibrant as any other well-written live action show.

HIGH FIVE! Good luck! The CPA is a monster. I have no aspirations to take it since I'm not interested in public/forensic accounting. My MSA/CPT is just as good for internal support since my field is primarily in treasury.

The good thing about it is that you take it in sections and you'll only need to retake that particular section.

For the record, I actually thought Chuck's redemptive arc was going in okay direction (relative to this show) for the 1st few eps. this season. Then it became all. about. Blair. They had an opportunity to explore Chuck's background and motivations, not just "improve" him for a relationship. I don't even want to get started on what they've reduced Blair to...@Momo, @Anonymous Season 3 really is where it all goes bananas, right? College ROCKS! Instead of capitalizing on that, they aged the characters and made them increasingly inane. Sadly S3/S4 are downright Shakespearen compared to S5. Aye, I have to stop thinking about this show! I'm just so unreasonably happy there's been nary a mention of Chair v. Dair.

Anyway, @Ace, I'll have to check out gargoyles. I like anti-hero protagonists though they do have to be written with care. The writers can't keep hitting the reset button (House MD, anyone?) to excuse bad behavior because the actions become too repetitive and as @Anonymous mentioned, the next time they "change" its cheapened more and more. The foundation must be laid over the course of the series, not just lazily tacked on in one episode, only to be reversed in the next. All Chuck does is flip flop between "good" and "bad". They've done this with all the characters, really, by allowing them to only inhabit one category or the other when the best written characters occupy the grey area. I mean, damn, someone can be a caustic playboy and be an otherwise decent human being.

@ACE- HIGH FIVE! There's such a misconception as to what our profession entails. As you much mentioned, one must have excellent verbal/written communication skills. BTW I finish my MAcct in April and then I'm off to tackle the CPA. Send good vibes! lol. @Junior- I'm female but that's neither here nor there. I too am psyched that a genuine, non-ship discussion is going on. I'm also fascinated how one's profession influences how they experience the show. Ace and I work in an almost purely analytical field- I apply the cause->effect, transactional analysis model even to GG. Meanwhile @junior is approaching the show from the standpoint of, I gather, a clinical psychologist so he/she considers the character's motivations perhaps less rigidly. I know, off-topic but fun to ponder...
