Style to Air Gossip Girl from the Very Beginning -- What Stories/Seasons Should Virgins Avoid?

As The CW’s Gossip Girl prepares to launch its final season (on Oct. 8), the Style network announced that it would be airing episodes of the sudser starting from very beginning.

Starting Aug. 15, GG episodes will air in batches of three every Wednesday from 8 to 11 pm EST. Style will also present an all-day Gossip Girl marathon on Monday, Sept. 3 aka Labor Day.

From the moment I shared this news via Twitter, many of you were quick to weigh in with excitement and/or warnings about what seasons should be skipped right over — with most of the votes going to Season 5.

Gossip fans, what seasons/storylines would you advise first-times to be wary of as they check out the sudser on Style? And what episodes would you suggest for the Labor Day marathon, perhaps adopting a theme of “Oy, this was a labor to sit through”?

Lastly, on a positive note, what classic moments/early arcs are you looking forward to revisiting?
