The Gilmore Girls--Seven Seasons in Six Months

OK, so it may seem silly, but I have watched all seven seasons of the Gilmore Girls (on DVD) in the past six months. Anytime I sew or clean or do pretty much anything in the kitchen, that's what I have been watching. I feel like a little part of me is over today because I watched the final episode of season seven, the final season. It is like reaching the end of a great book. Some of the characters on the show began to feel like old friends. Anyway, I had to pay a little tribute to my Stars Hollow friends by putting up a little blog ode to them. What a fabulous witty show. I will miss it.

Below is the Wikipedia info on the Gilmore Girls:

"Gilmore Girls is an Emmy Award-winning, Golden Globe-nominated; American comedy-drama series created by Amy Sherman-Palladino and starring Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel. The series made its debut on The WB on October 5, 2000, and it ended on May 15, 2007 in its seventh season, which aired on The CW. Time Magazine named it one of the top 100 television series of all time.
The show follows single mother Lorelai Victoria Gilmore (Graham) and her daughter Lorelai "Rory" Leigh Gilmore (Bledel) in the fictional town of Stars Hollow, Connecticut, a close-knit small town with many quirky characters, located roughly thirty minutes from Hartford. The series explores family, friendship, generational divides, and social class.
Gilmore Girls features affected, fast-paced dialogue, with frequent popular-culture and political references. It also features social commentary, which is manifest most clearly in Lorelai's difficult relationship with her wealthy upper class parents."

Tara, I love love love Gilmore Girls! I was so sad when it ended. I am now watching reruns on the Family Channel.


I am so glad I am not alone! I seriously am having withdrawals. I learned so much from it and always found myself better equipped with witticisms and snappy comebacks after watching it. :) I DVR the reruns on Family channel now because I returned the DVDs to my friend from whom I borrowed them.
