I haven't posted about the Gilmore Girls in a while because Lorlie has been pissing me off this season. Her stupid whiny passive-aggressive woe-is-me attitude was really starting to grate. But I liked the ending of the season finale tonight. Sure, it wasn't as good as when Rory gave it up to pilsbury dough-boy Dean at the end of season 4, but what Gilmore Girls needed badly at this point was a big rusty wrench thrown in the mix, and that's finally what we got.

I think it's funny when people get mad at fictional characters. I was in my room the other day when K-Mack ran in, visibly irritated, and said "You have to turn on the TV, this lady is really pissing me off." But I was busy. So she insisted. Finally I succumbed and turned on the TV expecting to see some lame talking head on a news magazine show speaking in absurd counterpoints to K-Mack's political worldview, but instead I found some bad sitcom pilot called Teachers, or at least it was about teachers or something. "But this is a sitcom," I said. "Yeah, I know," she replied. "A bad sitcom," I continued, "Yeah, I know," she followed. "But she's a fictional character," I queried, "Yeah and she's a total bitch," she answered. She was all worked up. It'd be like if I stormed around the house all mad at that pastor guy from 7th Heaven for being such a smug, self-righteous ass. Actually, I think I've done that before.

There is way too much WB going on in this post. My apologies.

Holy crap! I missed the finale. What the fudge happened? Please email me with good pop-culture references from the episode and brief synopsis. All work must be typed, single spaced, no more than 200 words.

I love GG. I too have been frustrated with stupid Lorelai all season. When did she become a doormat? The finale was pretty good - I didn't see the whole sleeping with Christopher thing coming.

They certainly packed in the music cameos for this episode. My fav was Yo La showing up.

I thought this finale had a nice "kicked in the gut" feeling when you saw Lorelei's face at the end. Oooh you could see the guilt. So. Good. I was pleased even if this season has been iffy. Lauren Graham really is a good actress I think. I hope she has a career when GG jumps the shark.

I made my boyfriend shut up for the last 20 minutes so I missed most of the show due to his vodka induced babble. His one comment:
"When did they make Rory such a slut?" which did make me giggle. I also was drinking...

I too, have been pissed off at doormat Lorelai for much of this season ... I would have expected a lot more comedy from all the musical guests, but I'm happy with where it all ended up and looking forward to at least one more season on the CW
