TV Talk: It's All About Gilmore Girls

One of the downer things about summer is that there's no new TV. It's one of those things I don't get... because, don't most people have more time to "laze" around in the summer and enjoy TV? During the school year, life is insane usually, and then, if we allow ourselves to get addicted, we have to figure out how to fit TV in along with all the other craziness. I guess perhaps there's vacations and such in the summer and people are gone, but still, I've never really understood it.

But anyway, this summer, we've taken matters into our own hands around here and have addicted ourselves to some old TV shows. Shows we've missed over the years before the advent of cool TV recording devices. We've gone to the library and rented seasons of Buffy, Smallville, and most importantly Gilmore Girls!

Yes, it's been a major Gilmore Girl fest around here. We watched half of the first season awhile back, so we got the DVDs again, finished up the first season, and are now nearly done with season 2.

So since I am so into this Gilmore Girl mode lately, I decided I needed to discuss it even though for most of you this is all ancient history!

My thoughts:
  • The dialogue for this show is a blast! You better pay attention, or you'll for sure miss something extremely witty!

  • I love all the pop culture/book/movie/music references. So fun.

  • I'm aching for Luke and Lorelei to get together. I know it's going to take them forever though, because of course that's part of what kept people watching, right?

  • Seeing Milo whatshisname aka. Peter from Heroes show up as the brooding teenager Jess has been very fun. He is so different from his Heroes character!

  • But I really love the Dean dude too, and am curious to know what he's been doing since Gilmore Girls. I think he's in something else too, as the bad guy now?

  • Sometimes I lose interest when the storyline follows the mom and dad. They are kinda irritating.

  • But I love the Paris stuff and the Lane stuff. They are both great too.

So let me know, are/were you a Gilmore Girls fan? What was YOUR favorite part about the show? What season was your favorite? Is there a point where I should stop watching?


  1. Ooh, another Gilmore Girls fan! This is probably my favorite show of all time. I love it; it just keeps getting better. Beware that the seventh season is a little different because the creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino and her husband Daniel Palladino left the show. It still has it's moments, but it's more uneven.

    My favorite parts come in later seasons, so I won't spoil it for you. I think you'll really like it as it goes on though.

    Have you seen Veronica Mars?

  2. I really love Gilmore Girls, too! I now own all seven seasons. :)

    Oh, and if you haven't seen it yet, I'd also recommend Veronica Mars.

  3. I know nothing about Veronica Mars. I'm assuming it's similar to Gilmore Girls? Does it have seasons available on DVD then?

  4. Loved this show. It was definately a change when the Palladinos left, but still worth watching to the end, I'd think.

  5. I'm not a scripted drama sort of girl, and watch very few TV shows while they are actually on TV (most I end up watching on DVD after they go off the air), but this show was my big exception! I loved and continue to love this one. I can't wait for you to get farther into it to see what you think. :)

  6. Love GG! I think Dean is one of the brothers on Supernatural now.

  7. I was a huge GG fan for many seasons. After one season (4? 5?) I was a little less interested, because Rory seemed like she was making the same stupid choices her mom did. However, I was so addicted to the Luke and Lorelei relationship, I started up again. I don't think I watched any last season stuff though. The mother/daughter dialog is by far the best part - and the quirky supporting characters. Oh, to watch these again for the first time.

  8. I had a Gilmore Girls marathon earlier this year - watched all seven seasons! Love it - I miss it - almost ready for a re-watch, I think.

  9. I love GG! I am watching all the seasons through for the nth time now. Season 6, to me, is a little painful, but it's worth it to watch all the way through to finish the series.
