now that the election is over and I no longer feel the need to torture myself watching hours of cable news programs, I realized that there really aren't that many tv shows that I like. In fact, aside from the fake news programs, there is pretty much only one: Gossip Girl.
They are all just so bitchy and pretty and the fashion is absurdly fabulous. (On what other show would a teenager wear a sequined tuxedo and have it go without comment from any other character on the show?) Plus I am obsessed with the wallpaper in Blair Waldorf's dining room, and totally intrigued by the fact that it is only on half the room.
I felt like an absolute dork watching a show about teenagers until I noticed that NY Magazine hilariously recaps each episode and declared it the "best show ever" last April. It's comforting to know that I am not alone in my age inappropriate obsession.
(monday update: I now feel even better, the nytimes has an article this morning about gossip girl.)
