Gilmore Girls

The CW 2000

Lorelai Gilmore has made her share of mistakes in life, but she has been doing her best to see that her college-bound daughter - and best friend in the world - Rory, doesn't follow in her footsteps. That may be easier said than done, considering that the two share the same interests, the same intellect, the same coffee addiction and the same eyes.

I watched this show when at its original air date and I'm re watching in Netflix because it is one of the most funny, corky, simple, fascinating and brilliant shows that has ever been made. The writing is extraordinary and the acting too. It will give you so many people to love and a whole world that you can feel both it's so realistic yet it's magical and fantastic. I could watch it for ever and feel good.

avatar

I could keep on watching this show over and over again. That's why I'm starting again tonight, for like the 6th time.

There is going to be a new season- I hope this gets updated on Trakt.

I’ve watched this show about 26273891 times and it definitely has a special place in my heart. The characters are so unique and instantly make you want to live in stars hollow as well. The first two seasons are by far the best ones. As the seasons go on you sometimes can’t relate to the decisions Lorelai and Rory make and even after knowing what’s going to happen I always get so frustrated by what they are doing. Some fights are just so unnecessary and definitely didn’t have to happen [spoiler] e.g. the whole April thing, Jess leaving, Christopher ALWAYS coming back) [/spoiler]The show would’ve been better without them. But I still love it so much, it’s a cozy feel good show (at least when Christopher’s not around, ugh I hate this man). Team jess forever

Some final *Gilmore Girls* thoughts after finishing the whole series... **The Show’s Biggest Strength**: Relationships. At its best, Gilmore Girls knows its characters, and digs into the complicated web of past and present that ties them altogether or splits them apart. Whether they’re sturdy or frayed, its exploration of those connections is always good. **The Show’s Biggest Weakness**: Plotting. While the show’s quite good at telling individual stories within episodes, a lot of the time it’s decisions to bring people together or break them apart, or to cause a major life change for a character, are convenient and/or unsatisfying. **Favorite Character**: Emily Gilmore. What a fascinating, complicated character Emily is. She’s someone who loves her family, but tries to express it in ways that can often repel them, who believes in a certain sense of what’s right and proper but often forced to confront things that don’t fit that mold, and who projects an image of strength and dignity but who can secretly be an open wound. So many layers to her, each more interesting than the last. **Least Favorite Character**: Zack. He’s the rare character who’s both unpleasant to spend time with, and who negatively affects things plot-wise. He’s not only a jerk who doesn’t really show an inkling of reforming until the kids are born, but he’s also an anchor around poor Lane’s neck. **Favorite Season**: Season 2. This was a tough one, but I think this is where the show had fully-honed its voice, while still being able to capitalize on the original premise. I’m not a big fan of the Rory-Dean-Jess love triangle, but I think this is the season with the overall richest exploration of Lorelai’s relationship with her parents (my favorite element of the show) and to a lesser extent with Rory. **Least Favorite Season**: Season 6. There’s still some good in it, but the characters stop acting like themselves, the plotting is arguably nonsensical, and it feels like the soul of the show starts to dissipate. **What Team?**: Team Logan. Dean is a prop, and Jess went from being a bad match for Rory to being too good for her. That leaves Logan (or, alternatively, being Team “Rory Finds Someone Else”). Admittedly, the revival threw a monkey wrench into this for me, and I wouldn’t necessarily want my kid to end up with Logan, but I still think he’s the best fit for Rory in terms of being someone who cares for her, is up front with her, but also pushes her. **Odds and ends**: (1.) You win, guys. Once Paris stopped being pointlessly vindictive to Rory, she became one of my favorites. (2.) The show’s good at mid-season “event” episodes but bad at season finales. (3.) How in the hell did Kelly Bishop and Lauren Graham never win major awards for these roles? They were both amazing performers who sold the comedy and the drama like champs every time.

watching this is like watching cute paint dry (it's cute, but it's also just paint drying)

Gilmore Girls gave me cancer.

I had forgotten how utterly witty and charming this show is. So glad Netflix added it to instant streaming so I can binge the entire series again (though I will miss watching it with my mother this time around). The beginning seasons were definitely better, but it held through all the way to the end.

Don't get the appeal for this show. Sure, there is chemistry between the actors, but I was extremely annoyed with the show. It portrays trivial things as problems to the "protagonists", but to me it just comes off as being extremely snobbish. For example (Spoilers ahead), Rory's grandfather tries to use his influence to get her into Yale. Both Rory and her mother make a huge deal out of this, saying she wants to go Harvard (something which the show has hammered into our brains time and time again). But then, Rory turns around and joins Yale anyway. Also, she is the poster child of entitlement. She hardly does any journalistic work and is surprised when she is told she won't succeed? Also, she talks about having soooo many problems, like: Oh no! I have to choose between Harvard and Yale! Such hard choices! It's not like both are excellent colleges! Oh no! Look at my hard life! I only have one pair of ultra-rich grandparents who live in a mansion and are willing to finance me for almost anything I want to do! Oh no! My mom lets me do basically whatever I want! So many problems. Add to that terrible portrayals of people from other cultures and sexual orientations, and you got yourself a terrible show. Now, many of you may like it, and that's perfectly fine. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. According to me, you should skip this. Sometimes, taking out your nostalgic goggles can help you see the terrible quality of the show.

Ma série préférée depuis longtemps et pour toujours ! Les personnages sont drôles et attachants ! Mère et fille ont beaucoup de culture, c'est même parfois difficile de les suivre x). J'ai hâte de voir les 4 épisodes produits par Netflix ! Quelle grande réunion !
