Gossip Girl returns Sept. 1

I'm always such a sucker for the television couples that seem made for each other but are always torn apart by circumstance, stupidity or whatever. You know, like Pacey and Joey on Dawson's Creek, and Buffy and Angel, of course. I love the whole drawn together but not together thing, but especially on TV. Television gives the viewer a more intimate look at a character, because we're allowed to spend more time with them then if they were in a movie. Witness: 22 hours of Buffy in one season on television; 90 minutes of Buffy in a bad movie. You pick which character you'd rather spend time with.
But here's my new favorite couple, Blair and Chuck on Gossip Girl, and they are caught up in a, what looks to be, touching and serious moment. I've developed quite a TV-boyfriend crush on Chuck, and as he's the bad boy on the show as well, that crush will probably only grow until he and Blair are finally together and happily ever after. But, as this is television, that probably won't happen until the last episode ... which takes place five years in the future ... a la Dawson's. And I'm down with that, too. It just makes it that much more satisfying, yes?
