Tuesday, September 13, 2005 :::
I seem to catch flak for being a 30-year-old male Gilmore Girls fanatic. Sure, I blog about it a lot and fervently recommend it without shame, but it's not like I write them fan letters or wear Gilmore Girls T-shirts or anything. Ok, well I don't write them fan letters, anyway.
And just because a Google Image Search for Gilmore Girls turns up a headless picture of me in my hoodie, well that means nothing at all. I'm still a grown-up. Still a sophisticated television viewer. Still a man.
Plus, I don't understand who the WB thinks their target market is anyway. I defy any 14-year-old girl to explain to me the meaning of Lorelie's Paper Moon reference, Rory's "Bob, Carol, Ted, and Alice minus Bob" joke, or how Paris can use Blue-Lagooning as a verb. Tonight's Season Premiere only solidified my status as a tricenarian Gilmore Girls fan. I wasn't sure if my favorite line was Luke calling Zima his girl beer or Michel contemplating the risk of getting jock itch on his forearm, but the whole episode was top notch.

I couldn't wrest control of the fitness center television and it was too late to go to Best Buy to pretend I was interested in the wide screen. So, due to the fact I won't even have local channels til Saturday, I missed tonight's show. Fortunately, a tape is in the mail.
Is it weird, by the way, that I'm jealous your picture shows up when searching Gilmore Girls?

I resisted the goddamn Gilmore Girls, until my sister practically physically held me down and made me watch an episode. You know what? Its great stuff. It certainly had more dialouge per-second than any tv show I've ever seen, and its generally very witty. I would sleep with Alexis Bledel in a second, also.

Are there sharks on The Gilmore Girls?

Oh yeah, I forgot about the "Best Christmas Present Ever" t-shirt. Who had that made and gave that to you again?
I love when you wear it and people look all confused as they read it. One day, someone who knows will fully understand it's genius. Well, until then I need to get a true version of that in black and a larger size of that banana shirt I find so funny.

yep, last night's show was pretty decent for a season opener. i love that lorelai and rory haven't spoken yet. the thing that confuses me, though is luke's hair. in the course of "one day" (more like 4 mos. real-time)his hair got like 8 shades lighter. i can't wait for paris to start calling lorelai.

Well isn't that the signature of all WB Hour Shows, bunch of young hip people sitting around talking like middle aged Jewish screen writers? But in defense of "GG", Loreli and Rory have always been movie fans, they used to sit and watch old movies all the time didn't they? And made Dean sit with them and deal with their patter? So of course they make references to old movies...that middle aged Jewish screenwriters would love.

I will ALWAYS give a nod to the Paris is Gina Rolands in "A Women Under The Influence" after drinking too much of Patty's punch. The hand gestures, the rasberries, everything. That was fricken genius. And I swear I was the only one who picked it up.

Oh man...I'm in the same boat, Dan. It's a secret shame only because people don't realize how good the writing is.

Did anyone else see the commercial for the GG pajamas?

Have no shame! I am a 30 year old Degrassi: The Next Generation fan! ok, ok 29!
By jamesdamian, at 9:41 PM
Oh No, James! You should keep that a secret for sure. Cause Degrassi aint no GG - no matter how far in the future they set it.

If it makes you feel any better, I'm a twenty-something straight female who loves the Girls Next Door show on E! Though that is pretty funny you hoodie pic comes up on Google.

You don't talk about your private life very much, and no reason why you should, but your liking of the Gilmore Girls does give one reason to hope that you might be a "man's man" :)

You are the first man I have ever heard publicly declare his love for the Gilmore Girls. Wow.
PS: I hope GG does not end up jumping the shark with this TJ character...
By Susan, at 11:32 AM
I know a lot of guys who like GG. Superman fans who get into Smallville, and it kind of acts as a gateway show to other shows on the WB with the same kind of characters and dialogue. Prime Time isn't getting any wittier, so I say enjoy it while it lasts.
