Gilmore Girls!

Warning: This post contains spoilers.  If you haven't seen the show, check it out on Netflix, they just added it.

-Gilmore Girls is one of my all-time favorite TV shows.  I wasn't happy with how they ended the series, but I loved all the previous seasons.

-The Mom, Lorelai, is played by Lauren Graham, and she is hilarious.  I love her relationship with her daughter, Rory.  They love to eat junk food, and Lorelai never cooks.  They bond by watching movies together.  Lorelai is the manager of an inn in the beginning, and then goes on to own her own inn.  It is inspiring to see what she accomplishes.

-You can tell from the beginning that Luke and Lorelai are meant to be together, and when they actually do start dating it is great.  But, what the writers do to their relationship is upsetting, and then they barely show them getting back together in the finale.

-I love Rory's relationship with Logan, and not only was it ridiculous that she rejected his proposal, but instead she went to work on Obama's campaign.  Talk about adding insult to injury.

-Yet, there are a lot of priceless gems throughout the show.  I love the small town that is supposed to be Stars Hollow.  It is the kind of place where most people would love to live.

-Many other characters make the show fun, like Kirk who is eccentric but funny.

-I love this post about the show on BuzzFeed Entertainment.  After watching Season 1, this was their conclusion:
Gilmore Girls is beyond incredible — beautifully written, perfectly acted, and its coffee cups runneth over with charm. Dean is the best boyfriend in the history of TV boyfriends, Lorelai is the mother we all wish we had, Luke is so scruffy and amazing it hurts, Sookie’s giggle could lead to world peace, and I can’t wait to start watching Season 2. I tip my eye-catching hat to you, Amy Sherman-Palladino. You done good.
Below are just some of my favorite quotes:
Lorelai: Who shows up at 8:00 for an 8:00 date?  Everybody knows that 8:00 means 8:15, 8:20 tops.
Rory: Obviously he was raised in a barn.
Lorelai: Okay, he's cute but this punctuality thing just marked 10 points off the dream guy quotient.

Lorelai: I'm related to God, that is so cool, it will make it easier to get Madonna tickets.

Lorelai: Don't let them put you on any of those pills, Tom Cruise would be upset.

Paris: We put the radio on Rush Limbaugh so people will think we have guns.

Lorelai: I can hear the termites chewing.
