Cruel Intentions + The O.C. = Gossip Girl

One of CW’s new shows of the season, Gossip Girl, already has me hooked. A little bit The O.C., a lot Cruel Intentions, Gossip Girl has a lot going on.

With hints of dark drama, including date rape and suicide, Gossip Girl centers around fallen “It Girl” Serena, who disappears leaving her BFF Blair without a word, only to return a year later out of the blue.

Nate (who is a dead ringer for Ian Somerhalder, by the way), who is Blair’s boyfriend, is a little too happy to see Serena again, and we soon learn why, as right before she disappeared, Serena and Nate had sex.

Blair is already pissy to Serena, but when she learns of that betrayal, the claws really come out.

But Serena seems not to care too much about her social status these days, as she is too busy tending to her suicidal brother Eric, as well as hanging out with her new friends Dan and Dan’s sweet little sis Jenny.

As this show stems from Josh Schwartz, the brains behind The O.C., it will be interesting to see what happens when the parents’ drama, which was only hinted about this week, gets mixed in with the kids’ drama–O.C. style.

    Fantastic combo comparison – it’s absolutely the OC placed in New York with some down and dirty Cruel Intentions mood going on. Makes me wonder a little about the future for the bro & sis… hopefully we’ll stay a little more OC on that situation and just have the not accepted guy totally in love with the gorgeous popular girl.

    Woaahh. thats a great comparison. its totally like that!

    I read all of the Gossip Girls novels, and though I was a little disappointed with the first episode, I’m deffinitley hooked too. haha.

    I didnt really expect serena or blair, (or nate or dan for that matter) to look like the actors that were playing them, but they’re still great. Serena looks maybe a little too old though?

    i seriously cannot wait for the next episode — yum!
