Gossip Girl: Season 1 (2007 - 2008)



Critic Consensus: Inappropriate to some and droll to others, Gossip Girl appeals to a broad audience with stylish costumes and a look into a nasty, upscale world.

Critic Reviews for Gossip Girl Season 1

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (21)

Developed from novels by Cecily von Ziege, Gossip Girl has lots of characters and shifting relationships and could be heading for a longer run that The O.C.

Feb 27, 2018 | Full Review…

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?

Top Critic

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.

Sep 19, 2007 | Full Review…

The beginning here is encouraging.

Sep 19, 2007 | Full Review…

It's got all the elements of good, smutty, check-your-brain-at-the-door soapy distraction: mystery, scandal, bitches, and blandly attractive actors who can probably memorize all of their lines.

Jun 11, 2018 | Full Review…

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

Oct 4, 2017 | Full Review…

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

Sep 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.

Sep 20, 2017 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Gossip Girl depicted its characters' excessive power and wealth as a double-edged sword, but it still cast their Upper East Side ecosystem in an aspirational light, thanks to the audience surrogates in the Humphrey family.

Sep 24, 2018 | Full Review…

There's a cynicism pulsing through the pilot, a cockeyed appreciation of how the rich do play.
