So I didn't watch much of Gilmore Girls Season 6 while it was on. It was a time conflict with something else I was watching, I can't remember now, but I just didn't really get into season 6. That is, until I got it on DVD on Sunday.
Now I know you are all thinking, what's with C. buying DVD's and CD's when she's got to be saving up money for her trip to NYC in October? Yeah, that's a good question. I don't have a good answer. I'm a media slut. Something cool comes out, I must have it. I've been able to contain myself a little, I haven't bought Lost Season Two, Veronica Mars Season Two, or Grey's Anatomy Season Two yet, but I will get around to it. Probably after NYC. I really need to save some more money to spend in that expensive city.
Now lets get back on topic. Gilmore Girls Season 6 was a little rough, what with Rory and Lorelai being all mad at each other for the first half of it, but overall, and especially when you've viewed the entire season over four days, it's got a lot of good drama, and the whole season is like a build up for what happens at the end of the season. Good storytelling. Rory and Lorelai both have some heavy relationship issues to deal with, and they both seem to handle things a little differently than we would have expected them to. Like Lorelai putting up with all of Luke's crap, like not letting her meet his daughter and putting off the wedding and shit, that was kind of weird, but she finally stands up for herself in the end. I think we really see how much Lorelai has grown as a character over the course of the series, before, like with Max, and to a certain extent, with Christopher, you see a Lorelai that is too scared of commitment, but when she finally goes for it, she gets let down by Luke. It's such a blow. No wonder she goes out and sleeps with Christopher. I also love the two episodes with Jess. He's like the character that always tells you how it is. Like Spike on Buffy. Maybe you don't want to hear it, but it's what needs to be said. I like that about Jess. And he's a little hottie.
The season 7 premiere was interesting. With a new show runner, Dave Rosenthal, it had a lot of the same ol' Gilmore Girls feel to it, but there was just something different about it I couldn't put my finger on. Everything seemed just a tiny pinch off. I think it will come together though. I'm interested in seeing what happens with Lorelai and Luke and Christopher and all that. I'm also interested to see what happens with Rory, will she stay with Logan now that he is in London? Lord knows what happened the last time they were 'apart'. I'm torn when it comes to Rory and Logan. On one hand, I think he's kinda cool, they have great chemistry together, but on the other hand, he's like one of those jerkholes who chicks like and you are always like, why do you like him, he's an jerk. I kinda just which Rory and Jess would end up together, but let's face it, 'Jess' who is played by Milo Ventimiglia has a new hit show, which I hope will live for seasons and seasons called Heroes. But that's a whole 'nother post.
I think I've said enough, and then way way way too much about Gilmore Girls. I know I'm a geek, you know I'm a geek. Let's just leave it at that.
