I remember being so excited when Gossip Girl started its season earlier than most shows last Fall. Boy, have we been paying for that early start in '09 so far, as the show has taken so many weeks off, I've lost count of where we are in the season. I think that's only added to my sense that GG is slipping a little — it's had a few iffy outings this Spring and not enough consistent episodes to really get some momentum back.
I'm hoping that all ends tonight, when the show returns with "Seder Anything." The title may be slightly outdated by now, but the drama seems fresh enough: Serena returns from a trip to Spain with Poppy (well, supposedly — for more on that, check out the video below), Dan gets an actual (gasp!) job to save money for college, Blair apparently does some scheming with Nate's grandpa, and Chuck appears to be back to his good, dirty self. Proof? He's turned his carnal attentions to young, lithe athletes. Oh, Mr. Bass, I have missed you.
Can Gossip Girl get back on the right foot starting tonight? To check out a clip,
