I've been too busy to get around to recommending "Gossip Girl," but just pretend I did. Then pretend that I withdrew the recommendation. Just. Too. Stupid.
Immoral I can take. One can always claim that the awful behavior of young people on TV will serve as a warning, and that good ultimately triumphs in these shows. But stupid I cannot take, and the flights of fancy around the topic of securing Ivy League admission in last night's show were so embarrassingly far-fetched and wrong that I didn't make it very much past the first commercial break.
