Got hold of my gossip girl season 1 boxset at the weekend, and along with watching the TV programme, I enjoy reading the bbfc consumer information for each episode.
The show has been rated a 15, even though most of the episodes are a 12, because, of course, they have to take the highest ratings.
Anyway, these are some of my favourite consumer infos:
For the episode Woman on the Verge: 15 - Contains hard drug references, preparation and use (makes it sound like an episode of Nigella or Ready Steady Cook!)
For the episode All About My Brother: 12 - Contains infrequent moderate sex references and homophobic abuse
For the episode Poison Ivy: 15 - Contains suicide references
Ever since the bbfc got all creative with their information to Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets – “contains mild violence and fantasy spiders” – things have just gotten better and better. Love it! xoxo
