I am Kelley and this is my Gilmore Girls' confession. I never watched it. Never wanted to. And I don't like the name Loralei (sp??) At all. Still don't. And how is Rory a nickname for that? Maybe. Still not sold after about 140 hours of GG binging.
How did it happen you ask? I was in between crime/violence/mystery dramas and I got sucked into the hype of the reunion episodes. Binge watched all 7 seasons in November. Nice diversion from life and election! Quirky. Silly. Happy. Cute guys, pretty clothes, romantic chemistry.
Annoying. Bad acting. Flawed characters. Plots that were just obstacles. And Hellooooo. I binge watched Parenthood over the summer which probably melted the ice a bit on my attitude towards GG. Hello. Lauren Graham's character dating her daughter's teacher? Helloooo? of course, GG did it first. But I was already trying to keep the Bravermans outta GG. Enough I thought. But I kept on watching because Luke. I loved him. Hated him. Loved Loralie (sp, still not sure!) hated her. And Christopher. Hated him. Never liked or loved him. Loved Logan after I stopped cackling over Carey Agos (Good Wife anyone?) with the hairdos! And Paris. (HTGAWM anyone?)
The quaint town, the bumpy, weird lives, I love it all. Toile wallpaper, mismatched upholstery + my dream of having an inn, swoon!
So I watched the trailers, and then the spoilers. I agree and disagree with them, which is so November 2017, right? And I am now an expert on GG, old and new. And I watched it seamlessly - They aged 10 years overnight for me. So I think I am having less of a letdown. No meltdown. I don't think they wasted precious GG minutes on the oddball characters, nope. Those crazy plots and Kirk-isms are what kept GG light and easy. Not heavy, L&L drama. The musical. Loved L's reaction. Just like I loved the karaoke scene. Which is 3 minutes of great TV and bad singing.
And I am 1/2 done with last episode. Still no Dean? I was such a fan... still no Suki? come on!
But they just snuck a bit of Parenthood in there, so ha!! I caught it. Thank you casting agent.
I am going to watch the end. And I'll be back to comment. Because I like to amuse myself. And all my TV shows are colliding...
