Critic Reviews for Gossip Girl: Season 1

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (20)

Most of the grown-ups on prime-time dramas behave like children anyway, so where's the shame in escaping into a teenie confection like this?

Lord help me, I loved spending an hour hating them, their pedigrees, and their unlimited credit cards. It was like studying the peculiar mating rituals and shopping habits of the species Manhattanus Elitus.

The beginning here is encouraging.

Gossip Girl's portrayal of young women and their relationships was often highly nuanced.

Gossip Girl established the CW's ethos in a way no superficial rebranding could.

September 20, 2017 | Full Review…

The show could do with an even stronger sense of humor as it goes on, but for now, Gossip Girl at least hits the right notes, and should strike a cord with the young demographic it's going for.
