Gossip Girl

One of my new favorite shows this season is Gossip Girl. It is kind of a guilty pleasure and it requires a suspension of disbelief that these 16 year olds can get away with what they do on the show (drinking in NY bars, going to strip clubs, etc). The first time I saw the show, I thought they were supposed to be in their early twenties...but then they went back to high school. I am excited for it to come back now that the writers strike is over, but I think the new ads are too racy given that the characters are 16 year old prep school students. There is a video as well that is quite suggestive. I do not consider myself a prude, but I think using such sexual ads with teenage characters is in bad taste.
