A year in life
Fall. I am glad they named the last episode fall, because it is my favorite time of the year. Well it used to be when it rained in these dry lands.
Can I start by saying, how good all the cast looks. They really do not look that aged at all, matured or little seasoned maybe. Rory might be the most 20 something looking 30 something.
I totally loved how they managed to retain all the original cast. Well nearly all. It was so like the old Gilmore Girls. The town Kirk, Taylor, Michelle, the Korean choir, Mrs. Kim, town meetings.
I loved the eccentric, dramatic, musical impossible skits. I liked how unreal Stars Hollows is and how it is still bubble wrapped and outer world can never really breach it. Even the phone signals keep getting lost. I totally loved the fact that they were able to bring back, Collin, Robert and Finn back with their eccentricities.
I am very glad they did four seasons, I liked that they have all their previous friends with them still.
I loved the Rory-Lorelei back and forth. There movie references that I would never get but its alright because Luke never seems to get them either. I liked that there was Paris and Doyle and Logan and his three crazy musketeers.
The eccentric, brilliant Paris, who is successful, has kids, who love their nanny, has five-story house with no elevator, the angry, pushy, extremely inappropriate always paranoid Paris, who could accuse her best friend of having affair with her husband and next minute send her out with her kids.
Jess with his worldly wisdom and a book and a sack. He walks in, fixes things or provides solution without ever overstepping and then leaves. He thinks Lorelei needs a therapist and he is the only one who actually understood Rory’s true calling and pushed her for it. He is Luke’s someone to throw ball with or in Lorelei words to through ball at.
Alice the super smart kid, who Luke just can’t keep up with but it is much like all other women in his life whom he cant keep up with, but is alright with it.
Dean, with his tallness, and Dean-ness which I always translated into really his Sam-ness because lets face it Dean is Sam, only Dean does not read as much.
Lane and Zack Van, they still have their music thing, the kids and band. How they still jam, and how they are unhappy they are making more money because Zack has to wear a shirt and tie for it. A dress code they think is an insult to their sacred culture of rock.
Michelle, how he is the sweetest to the guests and manages to say they most awful things about them behind their backs. The snide French man whose accent just does not seems to mellow even though he has been in states for 30 years at least. How he is trying to be nicer to the kids without sounding like a child molester. Right now he is at 6 out of 10, so working to lower that.
Sookie with her heaps of cooking, and how she can smell things which should be impossible to smell. In sink, on table top, on Lorelei’s hair
Emily Gilmore, the stuck up old lady, who knows everyone, has all the money, always gets her own way, ever the blackmailer and can’t help herself from interfering into others life or binding others to herself, in deals they don’t like but eventually get used to.
Logan Huntzberger with his big gestures and prince charming moves. The perfect couple when they are not being officially a couple. I was so completely happy to find out he still calls her Ace. Their perfect chemistry but worlds too far apart to be in sync.
The remake could have been stupid full of mistakes, but it really was not. It was as perfect as it could have been. Lorelei and Luke, and Rory and her some what dysfunctional love life.
I kept on wishing Rory would figure it out, but it is Gilmore Girls they always make things impossible before they get somewhere with them.
I really, really do hope they make another season. I hope when they do, the wrap the story with out cliff-hangers. If this was an attempt to see how people will receive the Girls, it was successful because we still love them and they still are the most quirky people.
So much nostalgia watching the four 90-100 minutes episodes. I am just happy they made them, could not really find anything wrong with them.
