Gilmore Girls

Gilmore Girls


Free-spirited Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) hasn’t always made the best choices in her life; but since she became a mother at the young age of sixteen, she’s made sure that her daughter, Lorelai “Rory” Gilmore (Alexis Bledel), doesn’t make the same mistakes that she has. However, that may be hard to do since Rory is the spiting image of her mother -- from their mutual love of coffee to their vast pop culture knowledge -- and are each other’s best friend in the world. Rory, however, is more serious while Lorelai still has the heart of a teenager, but you can see a piece of Lorelai in everything Rory does.

Since Rory was born, the two have been everything to each other. Lorelai’s decision to raise Rory alone without the help of her wealthy parents, Richard (Edward Herrmann) and Emily (Kelly Bishop), caused a rift between them that has been slow to heal. Lorelai single-handedly made a comfortable life for her and Rory through her job as a successful manager at a local inn, a job that her parents are not fond of. But when Rory was accepted to a highly prestigious private high school, Lorelai was forced to reconnect with her parents in order to pay the tuition needed for Rory to attend the school.

Lorelai and Rory live in the small town of Stars Hollow, Connecticut, and each of the 9,973 citizens have their own unique set of quirks. Here, Rory met her best friend Lane (Keiko Agena), a Korean girl brought up in a strict, religious household, but has a secret passion for all things music. Lorelai instantly bonded with Sookie St. James (Melissa McCarthy) as a close friend and business partner. Together, Sookie and Lorelai opened The Dragonfly Inn and continue to run it together. Luke Danes (Scott Patterson) is the local diner owner who has always had his eye on Lorelai, but is hesitant and guarded when it comes to romance. Other citizens include Michel Gerard (Yanic Truesdale), the health conscious concierge at the inn; Paris Gellar (Liza Weil), Rory’s roommate and former arch-nemesis; and Kirk Gleason (Sean Gunn) a quirky, yet lovable character.

As the series came to a close after seven seasons, Rory must deal with the realization that her time at Yale is nearing its end and has to begin preparing for her future in the real world while Lorelai adjusts to the radical changes in her romantic life. But despite all of the ups and downs Rory and Lorelai face, the Gilmore girls will always be the best of friends, despite their ever-changing lives.

Here's Why Gilmore Girls is My Favorite Show:Rating: 4 likes, 0 dislikes

It's rare that a pilot episode grabs me and ends up keeping me hooked for a series run, but in the case of Gilmore Girls, I was hooked after the first scene. I stumbled upon Gilmore Girls by pure happenstance and immediately fell in love with the premise of the series. After seeing the pilot, I couldn't get enough of the quick wit and rapid dialog full of pop-culture references, sprinkled with family drama that I easily related to. Like Lorelai, I too am a single mother and seeing a strong, confident single mother as the main character was something that you don't see in your typical television series. And for the helpless romantic in all of us, the series is chock full of relationship drama that keeps you on the edge of your seat, hoping that Luke and Lorelai will finally be together or that Rory will finally be with the boy of her dreams.
