TV5’s Lipgloss: Local Showbiz Trying to Do Gossip Girl

The good news is, Sam Milby’s not in it (rumor had it he was going to play Nate Archibald’s role). The bad news is, the Philippine version of Gossip Girl is *here* and as expected, it’s a bucket of lulz. It’s tacky, it’s stupid, it’s pretentious, it’s ugly, it’s hokie, the boys look like douches, the accents (aka attempts at sounding rich) are horrible, most of the cast can’t act, and it fails. Miserably.

Seriously, watch this teaser (LOL at the narrator’s bad inflection, especially when she says “the younger generation”. Why so perky?):

Notice how they’re all “I’m rich I’m rich I’m awesome because I’m rich, even though my clothes look like the cheap shit you get in Divisoria I’m rich and I’m powerful and popular but I’m very sad, too, because I’m a teen and I have real problems oh and hey look! I HAS A GUN! YEY! Lemme wave it around for you while I talk about how rich and awesome and powerful I am!”

Are you freakin’ kidding me. Do you see that kind of bullshit and stereotyping in Gossip Girl? Of course not. Why? Because it’s cheap behavior. And maybe this joke of a TV show (Lipgloss) shouldn’t be compared to the real McCoy (Gossip Girl) because it’s not an exact adaptation, but it’s kind of hard not to when there are so many obvious similarities in the plot and the characters. I don’t know what I just said but I think what I’m trying to say is that this spin off is disgusting (can’t think of another word) and riding on GG’s popularity. God, the thought of it alone gives me goosebumps of horror. I mean, SERIOUSLY?! Can you imagine just how dumb and vapid each train wreck of an episode is going to be???

And who the heck names their kid Julivee?

Pilot (which aired yesterday) preview:

Face of the First School Day? With a trophy and flowers and a public awarding? Really? Really??? I bet my ass that my idiot cat, Bobby, who catatonically stares at walls and the floor for hours can pen a better show than this.

I mean, there is nothing exceptional about Gossip Girl to begin with. I watch it for the pretty people and Chuck Bass (my GG episodes take up around 5 gigs of my hard drive). People love the show because, while it has nothing substantial to contribute to the betterment of the world and society (unless Ed Westwick takes off his shirt, which I am crossing my fingers for), we want to be them. I seriously can’t think of anyone who’d want to be an Abby (who calls herself a second generation showbiz brat, whatever the heck that is. She’s pretty, though) or a Meg (who seems really really lame and can’t speak properly).

  • Reply Lauren August 17, 2008 at 10:48 pm

    The only redeeming quality of Gossip Girl is its latent function as a fashion guide. Well okay that, and it does an amazing job of suspending your disbelief, sucking you into their world, and making you wish you had their money, their fashion sense, and their superficial non-problems.

    Not only is Lipgloss a cheap, tacky spinoff of GG; it fails miserably at pretending to be original. Horrible acting, HORRIBLE clothes (my ukay wardrobe is more fashionable than the curtains they’re wearing!), horrible storyline, (ugly) cardboard-thin characters. Nobody’s going to buy it. Well at least, I’m hoping people will be smart enough to not watch it.

    I want to like this show, but it’s just so hard because the acting just sucks, so does the accent. Gossip Girl was such an easy show to love even though I hated it in the beginning for trying to replace The OC. But this one, OMFG: IT SUCKS.

    Oh and that Cebu school thing, I know which school it is. CIE (Center for International Education). They wear a white button down, with a really short green/black/blue checkered skirt and long black knee-high socks with black shoes. It looks hot when I see them around malls and stuff, because I know they’re actually fucking rich brats who have all the money to spend and drive a BMW to school, but this show just doesn’t do the justice from what I’ve seen.

    This could have been done right, had they given it a bit more thought and if the writers had a bit more imagination. Too bad they rushed it (probably to beat abs and gma to the punch) and most likely skimped on the writing talent (not to mention the acting.)

Louise is pretty but the moment she starts talking I roll on the floor laughing, Accent niya parang bangketa girl. Abby is ridiculously pretty. Saab is a nice girl and pretty too. And Cheska can act, duh. I just feel bad they all had to be known as the cast of a show stupid simply because the producers didn’t have the brains to create one themselves. Filipinos as copycats is the oldest story ever.

    Everything looks half-baked, they could have done something about the lighting.
    The choice in music sucks and it was too loud.

    and for Juice..
    How dare you make assumptions of my school.. Do you actually know ANYONE from MY school!? Not everyone in CIE goes around town bringing a BMW.. in fact a number of students are “normal” students who just goes to CIE because of the excellent education it gives out.. not only does it give advance classes in Math and Business Studies.. it also gives you a chance to be affiliated with Cambridge University. And A LOT of PEOPLE from MY SCHOOL are NICE.. and HAVE BRAINS.. because you’re basically saying is that CIEans have NO BRAINS and are just RICH BRATS. I would have to say that.. what you are implying is COMPLETELY FALSE. Go over to my school and see for yourself.

    AND..um..one more thing, please…im begging you.. please stop using such words in front of the whole word,and,now,that i actually think about it ,this show has only its plot coming from GG.but,if they REALLY want to copy and rip off GG, they would copy the names of the “originals”, they would make meg=serena,abby=blaire,and the whole character.but, i guess, that this is just how filipinos learn on how to adopt on the america culture.like what my mom said,they cant make serena on th philippine television have *** with his bf on a sofa while preparing for her bf’s brother’s wedding.they CANT make the show like that.and, who knows,they might just do a real “Gossip Girl Philippines” with the hottest artist sensations in todays time on the station’s original station(ABS-CBN).and, another thing, HIGH SCHOOL GALS IN PHILIPPINES ARE NOT LIKE THOSE OF AMERICA.

    I’m pretty sure that school is CIS (Cebu International school) and DUH it’s not the first. It originated in Japan or whatever.

    And yes, this show sucks.

    Lipgloss is so friggin’ hilarious. Don’t look at it as a GG adaptation, rather view it as the camp version. Cris Pablo’s vision is probably to satirize the whole GG worldview to the point of ridiculousity. ROTFL!!! More more more Lipgloss! It’s so satisfying to see GG groupies with foams in their mouths dahil lang sa simpleng ka-jologan ng Lipgloss! :-))

    This show is so trashy. Non of it really depicts how students from Private High Schools act. If you wanna ask me, HOW I KNOW THAT? Simple! I’m from one.

    We don’t speak like, so conyoish!

    “OMG! Oh my gulay!” Ewww. The word LAME is written ALL OVER!

    L-) L-) L-)

    Not impressive. The conyo words make my ears bleed. And the english isn’t even half as good.

    lipgloss kinda disappointed me at first coz local showbiz just showed to everyone that filipinos are just imitators of other shows abroad

  • Reply d-godfather June 23, 2009 at 4:49 pm

    I never watch stuff like this may it be foreign or local…

    but couldn’t help but comment’

    just got this link from another site while doing some data mining

    You always have to take into consideration that in any media network out there, there is the so-called “business decision” and it involves creating a show that would generate a hype or buzz may it be good or not. Imagine the game shows that both giant networks have, they decided to franchise such shows not for the fact that those shows are really good, but it generates buzz, hypes, that in turn generates mass viewing from the public ergo market share and income…

    Compare it to say a very good indie/indy show, with good plots, great performance and all the elements that would make it great… but only a minuscule amount of public watches it, would you think it would last on air???

    networks are in the business not only to provide quality works but also to generate income.. its a business after all…

    giving an insightful critique would be helpful/good, but dissing and ranting about one’s work makes you go where?

    a lot of words had been thrown at this thread, like pretentious and cheap… come to think of it do you really believe that in some way or another you had never been one of those two??? Filipinos, youth are very well known for this….

    if you think you are cool? then i guess everybody’s cool..(reciprocity)

    May it be a good show or not… at the end of the day, it still created a buzz…..

      Just because it’s Filipino or Filipino-made doesn’t mean we automatically have to be proud of it. It’s ridiculously stupid to assume and think that. We have a very corrupt government; should we be proud of that?
