Gilmore Girls MAG

By Ruthie W., Toronto, ON, Canada

     “Gilmore Girls,” now in its seventh (and final) season, is an amazing television show that follows the lives of the mother/daughter team of Lorelai and Rory Gilmore. Lorelai is an energetic, opinionated woman born to wealthy parents, neither of whom lack energy or opinions themselves. Lorelai got pregnant with Rory at the age of 16 and decided to move out of Hartford, Connecticut, to seek refuge in a small town nearby. At age 32 at the start of season one, Lorelai is doing well as the manager of the Independence Inn. She and Rory have a spectacularly close relationship and share everything.

Lauren Graham (Lorelai) and Alexis Bledel (Rory) each do an excellent job portraying their roles in this dramatic comedy. They act alongside a fabulous cast of quirky characters who make you envy their small-town life. Scriptwriter Amy Sherman-Palladino uses amazingly quick and often subtle humor to make the dialogue fast-paced, laugh-out loud funny, and a must-see for all.

“Gilmore Girls” is a hilariously joyful show, and if you’ve missed it, you can catch up by renting or buying past seasons. A plus to renting is that you can watch the special features which include interviews with the cast and crew, bloopers, commentary, and more.

I usually watch “Gilmore Girls” with my entire family - yes, even my dad. It’s our tradition and even though I’m often jealous that my mom isn’t more like Lorelai, watching “Gilmore Girls” has definitely brought us closer. It’s our little thing and that’s why I’m thankful for it. Maybe your family will like it, too. Give it a try.

I disagree. She made a dicision that was best for herself. Yes it sucked i agree but she did what she had to do... if she wasnt ready to get marrie than that's just how it is, if logan didn't want to wait then its his loss... she probobly felt he did it out of the blue in a hurry and not well thought through.. i love this show and own all 7 season on dvd... i think sayin gyou hate her just because she didn't marry logan right then and there is a bit hasty.

I watched this show growing up! Rory is the type of girl I always tried to be! I'm so glad people didn't forget this show cause it's so good like this article says.

i have watched this show since it started and its amazing. Rory  and Loreali have the kind of relationship every kid wants with their parents. Especially girls. to be able to be so open and honest.

I was in love with this show (and I guess I still am) up until about 25 minutes ago. I was watching the second to last episode and Rory said no to Logan and I started crying!!! I really loved Logan and would have said yes without a doubt! Sigh... I now hate Rory for making that mistake and breaking Logan's heart!!!!!
