This show stared very well, had descend character development, and had much intrigue. The main cast had of course the good fortune of being rather good looking.
The start of the story might have been slow, but with the amount of characters. It was logical it would take some time before the public got to know everyone. yet when the time was right everything kicked off. Love, money, dreams, society, mystery. The show took care of it all.
The first seasons where very good. but after a while, only one mystery remained. The Identity of Gossip Girl. And the show might have been losing quality, the great mystery kept audiences watching.
The reveal and the eventual wedding where a great moment to end the show. The show might have overstayed its welcome for a little, but some shows did it way worse.
