They tried to copy CB and DS. That tells a lot imo.

Definitely, the things I love about the show I have never felt the same about in any other tv show, they are so great they surpass everything. Chuck and Blair of course but the friendships too, SB, the NJBC and also chuck/Nate and Serena/chuck - they all had something really special I can't quite describe what it is, I just love them so much and they felt so genuine and real, more so than any other show. I think that despite the rumours, for the first 4 years at least the cast got on so well, and ed/Leighton and also Blake, had really good relationships with each other. I just don't believe you can fake that LEVEL of chemistry, and friendship on screen, I don't see how it's possible. Also I think we are also so hard on it because we do love it so much, but it's the shocking waste the last 2 seasons were that cause so much disappointment haha.

Yeah they did do OMGS but it's like you said, they lost their impact because people were too intuned to spoilers or they filmed them somewhere dumb out in the open. Like we knew basically everything about the series finale, they weren't even bothering to keep it secret by then! At least in season 2 they filmed the cb scene with Nate as well so we were thrown off haha. But as far as actual OMGs, they became too obsessed with them and the show turned plot driven as opposed to character driven, probably because they were worried about ratings. Eugh.

Oh yeah I genuinely think 15-17 could rank up there as the worst television episodes ever lol. They made me hate Blair, And never thought I could EVER hate her!! She was my gal I loved her haha but she was completely unrecognisable. What she did to chuck as far as the contradicting speeches and actions and mixed signals was bad, but it was her behaviour in 15-16 that was the worst part for me. Her shocking insensitivity and selfishness in those episodes to Serena was just awful really. And then her declaration to chuck in 17 about not being in love with him anymore just didn't even make sense, after her speech to him at her wedding. Just so so confusing to try and correlate that to the Blair we knew. And they didn't even try and explain or acknowledge that this behaviour was awful or out of character either!! If they had done that it would've been so easy to accept and even a compelling storyline. But then they had that saccharine DB mess and that kiss, LOL. Do you guys remember when they did the 'you said dan, say it again' , literally nearly word for word copying CB's 'I love you, say it twice?' That had to be the writers rubbing it in even more, which made it even worse it was quite a risk to do that before the break because I know at least all the cb fans on the forums weren't watching live when it came back!!

Yeah cece's death was done so poorly I thought too, she deserved better than that! Haha I remember prom, I didn't like it either I wanted the whole episode to focus on prom but we did get some lovely feel-good scenes in that ep!

Yep, that's very true! I did enjoy them in the last episode I am a sucker for angst though ahah if it's done well, so I think for CB my fave season will always be 2! Just such heart wrenching moments and I loved watching both their feelings develop into a passionate love, even if they feared it at that point.
I hope your next response doesn't get deleted!

I think the cast still got on really well. It's like most shows when it is new and especially being young and moving to a new city they are going to get really close and socialise a lot but as the years go on they got older, their interested probably changed. It happens all the time with work places, school, college. It doesn't mean they don't like each other or hate working together. I think Blake and Leighton had wonderful chemistry and looked like they had fun between set.

I did read that they tried to hide the DS wedding and were a bit annoyed ppl got photos from inside the townhouse. Obviously they didn't try to hide CB and why would they? They needed ppl to see them bc that is what everyone wanted. So many people post pictures of themselves at CB's wedding spot and also when they post the Met steps it is always about SB

Agree very much with your analysis of 15-17. Nothing about them was original. "Say it again" "Say it twice" Oh the mixed signals she was giving Chuck were very frustrating - I love you more and more everyday if that is even possible and then basically asking him to wait for her and then saying I love you but I'm not in love with you. And cb fans got trashed and hated on bc we were hating on the db storyline but how couldn't we when Blair did a 180 so quickly. It's as annoying as when I read they had 2 years of build up. Really? They started half way through S4 and it was only about becoming friends, nothing else and then S5 was only the 2nd half too and Blair certainly didn't feel anything until 5x15. Oh I could rant about that so much but I better get off that track

I love the angst too - they did it so well (unfortunately) they put them through so much bc they were beautiful in their tragedy but they could also do the light stuff too. Agree Season 2 was the best overall it had all of that and the focus was on them. We were all hoping that would continue in Season 3 but they put them in the background for the 1st half. There was probably only three episodes in the 1st half that was about them which was disappointing. The 2nd half was more about them but we all know where that went As bad as 3x17 was for the horrible think Chuck did, the scene at the end was devastating but their acting was beautiful.



Thanks CK for the video

Yeah I agree!! I never bought the Blake/Leighton feud because they were so close on set, there's a lot of vids over the years and they always seem to be getting on really well. And maybe in the end not so much but their chemistry throughout most of the show was fantastic, I probably cried almost as much in their sad scenes as CBs haha! And ed/Leighton had incredible chemistry that never died, they drew me in completely in season 2 though.

Oh yeah that's right they did try and hide that, but yeah lol I think CB were certain by that point so it didn't really matter I guess. Aw the met steps, they are so iconic for the show not gonna lie I really really wanted SB's last scene to be at the steps, I'm sure they could've worked it in there somehow, the fact their last convo was about dan really annoyed me



I think a lot of people started to hate Blair in those episodes, because her behaviour was just ATROCIOUS. If you watch scenes, she's whiny, selfish, insensitive and egotistical. Basically a completely different person. And it did get worse, remember when chuck tried to go and visit her as a friend for advice on Elizabeth, because she knew her best, and she basically told him to piss off?? Thank god serena was there for him instead but omg.. and then she accused him of trying to buy her back! It was also the dialogue that I HATED - 'I guess I'm not used to chuck doing something selfless' or dan 'come on it's chuck' when Nate said he just did it to do something nice for Blair. Like wtf, what was the point of the apology scene, or the WHOLE of episodes 6-13 if she's going to act like he's still the same guy who did those things?! Sorry for this particular rant but I've just watched it lol and this episode was INFURIATING.

Although, bless him, when dan goes to whine about Blair nates putting a framed photo of baby NJBC on his desk screw people who say they weren't important, they are Pretty much the most pivotal core relationship of this show, as the side pairings (CB,SB,CN,NS, CS AND even BN to a smaller degree) all stem from them!!

Also remember the salon episode? I have never seen a more pretentious, nauseating display than in that episode. Pod Blair was in full effect. And exactly, I mean the only way they could get them together was to completely isolate Blair from Serena and chuck - how many scenes were there when her and Serena were both in the penthouse but had NO interaction together?! SO UNREALISTIC. And she's out getting ice when Chucks mother bomb drops and doesn't even seem to care?? Lol so ridiculous. Exactly, season 4 dan might have been pining but Blair didn't even want to admit to a friendship lol and still had her mind on chuck, so it didn't even start until that disgusting valentines episode. LOL I've just managed a massive rant about 5x19 so I will avoid it as well

Aww that was a devastating scene poor Blair, and oh god how painful is the next episode see I think we all know chuck did a despicable thing but I never even thought of stopping shipping them, because they do angst like NO ONE ELSE. They definitely brought out their best acting I think, I will always remember leightons face in 2x23 as well - the slow progression to tears. And 2x01 was the first moments where we saw her get emotional over him

Me too! I have some other ships but Chuck and Blair is the OTP of OTPs They are so unique, no one can hold their place. So I really agree with you.


Aww sorry, which couple are you talking about?

Yeah definitely agree they were my first proper ship that I was ride or die about haha, so they'll always be the best because of that, but they're also insanely special as well because the bad boy/bad girl (that's obvs very generalised as there's so much more to them) dynamic was so unique! I don't know a single other couple that has that dynamic and pulls it off like them. They were so exciting when they were both their scheming bitchy selves in season 1 that whilst I wasn't as invested as I got in 2x01, they were so fresh and entertaining haha

Argh, do you watch greys anatomy? I love Alex and Jo, can't really describe why but Alex is that kind of ******* on the outside/ big heart on the inside type character, and jo is similar in the sense of what they've been through and she brings out a fun/light side to him, so I was really drawn to them, in fact I remember watching them when they first got together finding odd similarities to chuck and Blair actually, it's funny. But now they're getting systematically ruined and have nearly zero screen time. It's super annoying :/

Who else do you ship? I need new ones so maybe you can convert me haha
Also those vids are killing me haha how are there still such great vids of them this many years after? That's amazing

I love how our thread gets relegated to the back pages and gets no help if we aren't around

Sorry I have been m.i.a. - I haven't had a computer and this website is terrible on my phone and iPad.

Hopefully I will have one soon and be able to reply to all the great posts
