Top 5 Reasons to Watch Gossip Girl when Sick

Tuesday 23 December 2014 by

Gossip Girl, TV,

I’ve been ill lately. My poor housemates have had to suffer along with me as I’ve snuffled and coughed my way through a factory’s-worth of Kleenex and sunk enough cough mixture to fill the Shard. But this also means that as I’ve holed up in my sick bed, and that can only mean one thing: Gossip Girl marathon. Thank goodness for six seasons on Netflix! But why Gossip Girl I hear you cry? It’s not really in keeping with my usual tastes. But here are five reasons why Gossip Girl is the perfect antidote to a whopping case of cold and cough…

1. The fashion

Admittedly, season one may have dated a bit. But the fashion makes me green with envy, and heart pulse with garment lust. I switch between tastes (I like to imagine I’m a Serena, but often I lean towards a Blair) but ultimately I want it all.

2. Chace Crawford

Those blue eyes. Need I say more?

3. plot twists

I can’t keep up with who’s dating who from one episode to the next, but what is more distracting than trying to keep up with the twisted love lives of some fictional characters?

4. The drama

It might be all Upper East Side backbiting and fun and games, but when they really want to get to the heart of it, the Gossip Girl creators really pack a punch. They know how to turn on the waterworks.

5. The hundreds of episodes

Seriously. The whole six seasons can fill days upon days. I never have to move.
