Judging by the writing this season, Blair is going to be Diana for some reason. I smell a scheme
I don't like Barney and Quinn either, when Ted said "You really love this girl, don't you"? I was like, really, already? At least with Nora we saw them get together and develop. With Quinn, it's like they just need someone to get Barney to the alter.
The writers are trying to build tension for this season but all they're doing is confusing me. I don't know what's going to happen, mainly because I'm not sure of the characters' motivations.
I'm trying to like Dair, they talk about a real relationship that's built on friendship as well as lust but something's just lacking with these two. The passion really isn't there. I'm all for talking in bed but doesn't that usually happen post-coital? They were a mile apart, like two kids on a sleepover, not lovers sharing ideas. Every time Blair talks to Dan, she has this horrible whine in her voice. And every time she talks about Louis I want to smack her, he was loving to her right up until the wedding. When she revealed to another man that she loved him instead. Louis may have been as interesting as dry toast but he put with a lot from Blair.
Maybe I don't like Dan and Blair because of Blair. I'm all for a genuine, sweet relationship but this isn't it. I miss Derena, I miss old Chair, and I miss Nate with random, cougars. Diana and Nate leave a sick taste in my mouth after Monday's revelation.
I miss Betty, this is a strange thing for me to say because I've always hated her. I know January Jones was away having a baby during the filming but we need more of her later on. Mad Men just doesn't seem like Mad Men without her. It's like when Joan's away from SCDP, it's not the same!
It will also be interesting to see how Betty's handling the changing times. She's pretty set in her ways.
I'm so glad we got that one episode with her but we need more. I never thought I'd be saying that.
to be a father and now, he's avoiding it. As Don pointed out, he's got everything but still isn't happy. Great acting moment when he's in the whorehouse and the girl is trying to please him, what dark humor! I love it.
As for Don, the biggest problem isn't that he's happy or that he's not cheating, it's the fact that he seems flawless now. You can't go from being mostly vice, to being pure. You can't go back that far. If you want to cut out the women, throw in the smoking. Give us something that reminds us of Don, not the washed over character whose completely transformed. Give him a work project! Something Don-like!
I loved this episode, just like I loved Mystery Date. I was worried that this season was going to be a disappointment, frankly I was let down by the premier. But these last two episodes have been excellent. The fight was great but I enjoyed Lane's despair more, he's clearly new to the Ad business and despite being obnoxious, Pete has a point. Lane is not an accounts man, he shouldn't try. You know what they say about mixing friends with business.
On that note, Megan is irritating me too. I loved when she was at the Campbells and blathering away about how she got into advertising when Pete just gives her this look. He's knows that she didn't work for a damn thing.
I have the same reaction to Pete as most viewers. He's like a big child, he can't handle the life he's clawed his way into. The saddest moment for me was when he looks at his daughter and says, "I take no responsibility for her". Its meant as a joke but clearly there's more underneath that. He didn't really want to be a father and now, he's avoiding it. As Don pointed out, he's got everything but still isn't happy. Great acting moment when he's in the whorehouse and the girl is trying to please him, what dark humor! I love it.
What is with that picture? I've seen it twice now? Does Elizabeth insist on having it with her on set?
Whoa, that's awful. GG's style has slowly been improving but that color washes her out.
Nate and Serena are the reason you should never hire your high school friends. But Nate running a newspaper in the first place is just silly. College and internships, that's the next step for this UES kids.
Why the Hell are they all over Manhattan? Why can Chuck suddenly run a multi billion enterprise when he's simply a spoiled playboy? He may have picked some things up from his daddy but there's no way he'd know EVERYTHING off the bat. Why is Blair married? Why is Serena bouncing from high profile job to high profile job, fucking up every single one of them along the way? Don't these people talk to each other? Whose on her resume that didn't fire her?
AREN'T THEY IN COLLEGE?
This is just ridiculous. I'm willing to suspend my belief for a couple of things because it is a tv show but come on! None of this remotely comprehensible!
Oh GG writers, what have you done?
Blair and Dan can only have sex when they're drunk? That's terrible. What a message to send out to young people. Drunk sex is mostly regrettable. I get that it makes you lose your inhibitions but also, you get sloppy. Especially the guys. Also, it encourages teens to go after more drunken sex, that was something they never needed encouragement.
I understand that some couples have a rough time initially with sex and they work to resolve it, fine. But to solve that solely with alcohol? Meh. They can redeem this if they have Dan and Blair actually enjoy themselves while remembering it in the morning.
NOT DIANA. NOT ELIZABETH. OH GOD MAKE IT STOP.
The Ivy storyline is ridiculous. End of subject.
Serena as GG? I may be intrigued... Lets have S dig into the dark side they always talk about but NEVER show. Not really anyways.
