Gilmore Girls was really good last night. Even Paris had a good subplot. I don't know how I feel about the whole Marty/Logan thing they have developing, since Marty is a boring simp, but the rest of the episode was top notch. I don't know why I feel like I have to apologize for liking The Gilmore Girls every time I post about it.
No new episode next week, but that's ok because next Tuesday we got something even better:
Season 2 on DVD! It's gonna be a Gilmorific December!

Yeah, a Gilmore Girls post!!!
You can't forget the great moment at the end where Richard talks to Logan about setting a date for the wedding, etc. That was great!!
Not sure how I feel about the Logan/Marty thing. I am glad that they gave up on the Rory and Dean relationship, because it was getting old. I think a Logan relationship could be entertaining for a little while, but nothing that would last very long.
So, you buying season 2 on DVD?

Are you kidding?

I will never apologize to anyone for LOVING the Gilmore Girls, never ever. I want seasons 3 and on DVD now!

Hmmmm...that would have been a nice xmas present for you from someone.

I'm so excited for my DVD set....!
Even more so because I did not see the first, second or third seasons of Gilmore.
How could such a thing be, you ask?
Well, I stayed away because GG had won some award from a family organization for great programming. And that freaked me out; I feared it was going to be another Seventh Heaven type thing with spooky Christians who always say exactly what they're thinking (known as on the nose dialogue in the screenwriting biz -- which I'm not in, but I can still sling jargon like a presidential candidate flipping hotcakes. Mixed metaphor, er, simile, sorry.)
So the pagan in me stayed away, not wanting to watch a show endorsed by some rapid family values people. But then, after the demise of Buffy, I decided to try GG, just this once. Well, crack for a crack baby, I always say (or was that my Grandma?), I was hooked. (And, yeah, dug Rory's Buffy allusion last night to Paris ... who hooked up with a Buffy alum.)
Do agree that I could do without Marty. Haven't seen the whole Jess-Rory relationship yet (ah, the places I'll go!) and was sorta 'eh' about the whole Dean-Rory combo. Logan, despite his breeding, is damn attractive to me. I like him. I like him and Rory together. And my God if I was caught at work typing more words on Gilmore Girls than I have all day about our anniversary celebration (THIS FRIDAY), I'd be dead.
Anyway, Dan, I say the both of us stop apologizing for love of this show. It's a natural thing, nothing to be ashamed of.

I've always avoided "GG." To me, it just seemed like one of those weird, on-the-fringe shows that only a strange select group likes, like "Sponge Bob" or "Alias" or "Monday Night Football." Plus whenever I clicked past it, the characters were talking incredibly fast which annoyed me.
But when I was setting up my living room this weekend my friend Gen was hanging out watching "GG" reruns and I found myself being entertained and even laughing a couple times. Kind of makes me feel like crap about my own relationship with my parents, but what are you gonna' do?
And last night I did watch the new episode for a couple minutes, but I was totally lost and it was up against "Biography," the best show ever! Dustin Hoffman really has had a fascinating life. His apartment blew up once!

Dustin Hoffman's apartment blew up once? Are you sure you weren't watching Outbreak or something?

The Gilmore Girls has good lessons in it -
1. If you're a teen mom, you can be best friends with your daughter when she grows up. And you'll be a hot mom - with great clothes.
2. The Jess-es of the world will always steal the girls away from the Deans of the world. Unfortunate truth for the Deans out there.
3. Rich people are maladjusted freaks
4. Small towns are charming
5. Two main characters can get together without the show "jumping the shark"
Oh I only hope Santa brings me the Gilmore Girls on DVD so I can learn those lessons over and over.

Though I do not watch the Gilmore Girls, I think that if you like the show so much there is no reason to apologize for watching it.
I do not apologize for my Trek obsession. It's okay for you to like the Gilmore Girls. Just don't expect me to watch it. Not my kind of show.

I'm starting to feel like this is a support group for GG addicts.
Hi, I'm Maggie, and I'm a Gilmoraholic.

Every Star Trek and Star Wars fan should be constantly apologizing to the world...

Oh, come on now. There can't be a Logan without a Marty. It's the same now as when she was dealing with the Dean/Jess thing.
Rory's going to be attracted to the nice guy because she's a nice person. She's also going to be attracted to the bad boy because she's got a wicked sense of humor and a need to be challenged. It's been the same thing Lorelai has been going through all of her adult life, only now Lorelai has Luke: the nice guy AND the bad boy. Until Rory likewise finds both qualities in the same guy she will always be dating the wrong guy. Or two of the wrong guys.
My apologies for the rant.

No need to apologize. It's a brilliant show. Yeah. . . I think Marty needs to start doing something interesting soon, because this proletariat good guy crap isn't flying.

not that this is at all relevant, but I have a good friend who was an extra on the show. very background, very "extra." once you start looking for someone on a show, it's fairly amazing how many freakin' extras are on a show.... but really, I am digressing all over the place here...
