I’m not digging this Haley s/l. As someone who has, unfortunately, had to go through losing my mother, it just rings so over-dramatic (yes, I know this is a drama). She has gone from grieving to being mentally unstable in less than two episodes and I would only buy it if she had a history of mentally illness. People go through this every day, and very few actually have a breakup with reality. That’s just my .02.

The Brulian bathtub scene reminded me of the Naley bathtub scene from season 3… it was cute.

Omg!!! This episode was the best episode of gossip girl in a long time:) Chuck and Lilly’s scene and Rufus and Eric’s scene was great but Rufus and Eric’s was bit to short.Jenny and Serena fighting was cool. Blair and Chuck were acting their age so that was awesome. Blair the bitch is back!!! Daddy VDw is interesting. Love the family conflict with the VDw’s vs Humphrys. However, there could of been less Danessa. Other than that the episode was brilliant and vintage gossip girl.

i LOVE your blog, i cant believe how you report all this from LIVE tv
and i love ALL the shows you cover. Impressive. And thanks, really…

I’m pretty sure Julian loaned Alex his watch when she was self-conscious about her scars in 7×13. It was to help her cover them, I think.

Also, I think the OTH writers have something against Haley’s instruments. First it was Nathan destroying the keyboard in 2×13, now this piano fire. 🙂 All that aside though, I’m a little worried about Haley…

4 05 2010

I think that they could have made Haley’s storyline better, I mean her reaction to the mom’s death. I wanted her to be bitchy andstuff but she’s just acting weird to me.

4 05 2010

Sane: I’m kind of with you, kind of not. It did seem a bit melodramatic but it’s not impossible. Either way, I’ll give props to Joy’s acting and that’s about it. Not a good storyline, IMO.

Alyssa: I was thinking that, too. It was cute…but sort of bothers me as it’s just another “repeat” and we’ve had soooo many this season.

Joe and Sara: *Loved* the Lily/Chuck and Rufus/Eric scenes. Best part of the episode for me. And you’re right, the Rufus/Eric one was a bit short. I hope we’ll get some more. I don’t have any siblings but the Serena-Jenny fight seemed so “sisters” to me. I liked it. I don’t think bitch Blair really went anywhere. Sure, she’s been sad the past few weeks but Blair has been quite a bitch to quite a few people this season. Danessa…I don’t know. I don’t know what to say about them. And maybe that in and of itself says something.

shivangi, thank you so much. I’m humbled by our comment. I’m not sure how I do it all either but makes me feel good knowing people like you are reading.

Trai: I remember Alex being concerned about her scars but I must’ve missed/forgotten the watch part. Thanks for the info. Interesting theory about Haley’s instruments, lol! I think we can be worried about Haley but need to put it in perspective: I don’t think the show is going to do anything permanently detrimental to their main character.

Wes: I don’t if I rather see Haley being bitchy. I just feel like–and unfortunately this is also true of other things this season–the storyline isn’t jiving with what we know from the past.

OTH: I really like Bethany Joy’s acting, but that storyline totally bores me. And Josh is gay–lol. Figures, huh? I thought it was a nice twist. That Katie/Clay stuff is so ridiculous. Come on! That’s just…ugh. Seems so fake. I really like the person Alex is becoming. I dont have really anything much to say about Victoria/Alexander….its just boring. (I say that too much.) Same with the Mouth/Lauren/Skillz drama. Man, that is dry. Next week’s promo didn’t thrill me, nothing I’m looking forward to. When I saw Haley jump into the pool, I rolled my eyes. GG:Jenny irks me! What is her deal? It doesn’t help that Taylor Momsen seems like her twin IRL. Why did she try to seduce Nate–I’m lost. (OT, her extensions are gross) I wonder why she leaves in the season later. Dan/Vanessa: I knew once she changed her mind about the internship she would change her mind again because she was already confirmed as one of the female leads who were leaving. I miss Dan and Serena! I do not like D&V as a couple. And i didn’t know Chuck and Lily were close. Thats so sweet!

4 05 2010

Alexandra: As someone who could not stand Alex at the start of the season, she has come a long way. Do I wish there was less focus on her? Yes. But I do love Jana Kramer. Jenny irks me, too. She tried to seduce Nate because she wants him for herself. I’m not entirely certain Jessica won’t be in the first few episodes back next season. Her character may just be away for the summer and the media spinned it as a lead leaving. Even so, Jessica/Vanessa isn’t in every episode anyway to begin with so it’s not a big change. But spin spin spin, says the media. I love Nate and Serena but I’m a big Dan and Serena fan, too. I wonder who will truly be the “endgame.” They don’t spent a lot of time on Chuck and Lily but I love it when they do.

I’m kind of thinking/hoping we will get a proper Dan/Serena/Nate triangle next season. I feel like there is a lot of potential there, especially now that Nate and Dan have become such good friends and although I ultimately would like to see Serenate together I want some relationship drama, pining, lust etc. … it kinded of urked me how N and S were just together when we got back from hiatus and how cool Dan was with it.

5 05 2010

I was irked by that, too. I wanted to not only see reactions from Dan, Vanessa and Blair, but also had S and N finally got together. Where we started at 3.13 was not where we left off at 3.12, and though I guess it saved them time, I felt a bit cheated. I am such a sucker for pining and lust. I think I would very much like to see a Dan/Serena/Nate triangle but I worry about how they’ll do it. (And how the Dan-Serena stepsibling stuff will be handled again.)

this haley thing… is SOOOO weird!
I dont understand why Haley is getting mad at Jamie for stupid things.. and pushing Nathan away.
And to be honest. if Haley were to become an alcoholic. I wud think that is really stupid cuz like.. when Nathan had his drinking problems.. we saw her watch him in disgust… of it..
SO i dunno.. One Tree Hill for me.. is getting quite boring..
like.. example… Brooke.. and Julian.. are FINE!!!???!!!! LIKE?? thats weird.. considering that the last 10 episodes have been them.. at each others throats.. JUST.. like her and Lucas before…
AND… haley and Nathan storyline.. isnt believable..
Quinn and Clay.. are like the only ones with a proper storyline..
AND.. like.. wtf??? Grubbs… and w.e her name is?? LIKE.. thats SOOOO weiirdd

Im not liking Serena… there showing this side of her.. that is kind of different.. I dont like that she doesnt appreciate Rufus.. and she is tryin break Lily and Rufus up!
I dont get the Jenny storyline.. ??…??… HOW? does she figure there is somethign weird about the medication? she dealt drugs.. does that make her an expert pharmacist???
I LOVED the BLAIR.. and CHUCK… storyline.. i felt it was nice… it was a discrete and captivating way to get the audience to watch..
SERENA and NATE???? wtf? does she not realize regardless of EVERYTHING.. nate still chose to spend his time with Jenny.. and even though Jenny tricked him… i still think its weird.. that Nate and Serena… are okay. again??…
Dan… and Vanessa?…. im getting sooo tired of them.. they have the same problem EVERY episode… and besides.. they are SOOOOO isolated.. from everybody else… in the show…
Lily and Rufus.. was a good storyline.. cuz we havent yet seen tht love triangle.. with William… I just dont like how Serena is getting involved..

put some excitement.. into it… they arent in highschool.. they shudnt be fighting over a girl… and.. throw a stump into Brooke and Julians relationship.. cuz so far we have seen that their professional lives are where the obstacles occur..

Ev, you don’t have to apologize for being cynical or critical. You are entitled to your opinion and we welcome all opinions here. =) While I don’t like the Haley storyline, I think they are trying to show that she is not in the right mental state due to her mother’s death, hence her weird behavior. And while I’m happy Brulian is back together, I don’t like that it took Brooke apologizing for them to get to this point, since Julian had things to apologize for, too. I’m not sure what makes Quinn and Clay’s storyline proper to you. Regardless, I don’t care much for Clay and I care even less for Quinn, plus I’m tired of the psycho storylines and I think this has ruined the Clay-Sara storyline, so I’m not happy with at all. As far as Grubbs and Miranda go…just a waste of screentime. I do agree the writing has gotten lazy for OTH (which is one reason why I think it shouldn’t be renewed). I can sort of understand the little girl in Serena wanting nothing more than mommy and daddy back together so she can have the true nuclear family she never had, I don’t like her behavior. Besides just being unrealistic, she’s not being fair to Rufus or her mother, really. No, Jenny is not an expert pharmacist. But she took Lily’s pills and gave them to that girl. And that girl had a bad reaction to them. Which indicates that Lily’s pills weren’t what the label said and what Lily thought they were. Thus, Jenny is realizing something is wrong somewhere. I guess S has forgiven and forgotten with Nate…but not with Jenny. I kind of understand it, kind of don’t. Dan and Vanessa are getting tiresome, precisely for the reasons you said: repeat problems and isolation from everyone else. I’m kind of tired of Rufus/Lily drama, too, though. I feel like it’s been non-stop since the show started.

5 05 2010

Yeah, that OTH phycho storyline ruined EVERYTHING. Its completely ridiculous and unrealistic. Clay is lame and now that you mention it, so is Quinn. WHY did they waste their time on a boring character like her? GG: Now that I realize it, you’re right, Dan and Vanessa are very isolated from everyone—they do not have much interaction w/anyone but each other. As I said b4, I was a HUGE Dan and Serena fan, even for someone who barely watches Gossip Girl. I miss them, they were sweet and awesome to me. I don’t like Serena and Nate at all, it all just seems so cheesy…They just remind me of each other? I dunno, they are just weird.

5 05 2010

Hmm, I never thought of Serena and Nate being similar like that. I do kind of see it, though. She and Dan were definitely more opposite.

10 05 2010

None of u are true OTH fans in my opinion, I love the show so much, I just want it to stay on tv…The Haley thing is a little extreme, but they are trying to make a point of her depression and her being out of character. I love that Brooke and Julian are back together, Brooke deserves to be happy she has been thru a lot; I’ m sure they will put her back into something dramatic eventually, but I think she deserves a break!…I’ am coming around to Alex’s character, she is actually trying to be a good person thanx to Julian. Victoria & Alex, I like it, it’s different but Love comes in so many different ways, and if they are happy who are we to hate on them?! As for Clay and Quinn, I like them both they are more calm characters but the storyline is not boring, its just a different kind of romance and throwing the supposed “Sarah” in the mix makes it crazy interesting. I want to see Quinn kick her a** ! I think Mouth and Lauren should be together. I Love Skills but he messed up, he lost his chance. This is real life (yes its a show but still) , not high school; be with who u want to be with, dont feel bad about falling in Love with someone. I want Grubbs & Miranda to be together, it could be like “The Proposal”, marry him so you guys can date!…Last but def. not least, JAMIE; I love that little boy, he is the best character and actor on the show, there’s too much to say about that little cutie( I want to name my future child after him lol)…Also I do miss Lucas & Peyton, I love them but I just think their storyline is finished, they have been thru so much together and apart, their happily ever after is complete 🙂
