Video Clip and Reaction to Gossip Girl Lily Spinoff Scenes From "Valley Girls"

Could Gossip Girl's Lily Spinoff Work as a Series?

Most of you were at least a little excited to see Gossip Girl introduce its potential Lily spinoff on Monday. Well, now that we've seen the sample scenes, do you think the show could work as a series? Or is this one trip to the '80s that you'd be just as happy to cut short?

I didn't care for the spinoff scenes, but mostly because they were too forced on the GG episode. But it could make a decent series as long as they give a lot of screen time to Lily's sister (I love Krysten Ritter!) and they get rid of that creepy guy, Owen. Argh, the guy doesn't have one thing going for him! Ah, also, lots of Andrew McCarthy, of course :)

I really liked the cast. Ryan Hansen from Veronica Mars and Serena's dad is Psycho Derek from One Tree Hill. I would watch that.

I thought it was actually interesting! Much better than the pilot episode of 90210. Brittany Snow was amazing, and I really hope that Andrew McCarthy has a bigger role on the show if it gets picked up. My only complaints are 1.) I didn't like Lily's love interest and (2.) they tried too hard to be '80s. A Rubik's Cube??? really?

YES. I'm so hooked. I was sad when the episode ended last night, I really wanted to see more. I've always loved Lilly, and now I'm like-ohmyfreak-the mother was really cool and perfectly snobby, and how the heck does Lilly end up with Van Der Woodsen after such a unfriendly first meeting? When does Mr. Humphrey show up, and will we also see a young Bart Bass and maybe his deceased wife, Chuck's mom? I totally want more dirty 80's LA!

i did NOT appreciate the intrusion during gossip girl, i was sooo annoyed. not to mention, the chick who plays young lily was quite annoying - i get it, she's supposed to be this clueless, rich brat but so was alicia silverstone in clueless but yet she was still charming?!

It has potential but I mean, we kinda know how it's gonna end so it's hard (for me at least) to enjoy the love interests they were setting up.

I ended up kind of liking it; I think probably because I began with such low expectations, haha. I don't know if Brittany Snow is the best fit for Lily, though. But I thought it had potential

The only thing I was thankful for was that we didn't go completely over to Young Lily and we still got the rest of the characters and the prom. Didn't like it Didn't like the characters. Didn't care about their "world." About 20 minutes was enough for me.

i thought it was good... owen's a hottie, and there were a few funny moments (ie lily wanting to be a prostitute except, "are BJs a must? because if that's the case, i'm SO not doing that!") it wasn't as good as regular gg but i would totally watch the spinoff if it got picked up

I hate Lily's love interest he looks like the guy that will slip you a pill in your drink...EW! Totally gross. And this episode was horrible...flashing and back and forth..and the whole Blair and Nate break up...too the writers just decided "lets just throw something in". Was looking forward to Georgina scheming :(

I have to agree with sweetheeart I really enjoyed it last night. I have been going back and forth between GG and DWTS every monday for the past couple weeks but this was the first week that I didn't flip back to DWTS because I was "Totally" into the show! On the other hand- I am probably one of the older views of GG (I am 30) so I was around in the 80's and loved the 80's and I love Brittany Snow! I enjoyed it and I was thinking at time this is good but how can they keep it going as a show and not just similar to a movie but I often think that for most new series.

no - i think that it was kind of annoying actually. i LOVE andrew and was thrilled that he's the dad -but otherwise there wasn't much to the series snippet

Worst episode of GG ever. It was boring to the point I thought about turning it off.

c4rollin3 — you'll definitely see this episode. It was basically a test for the CW (the network that carries it here in the US) to decide if they want to make it a full series. We'll find that out next week.
