It's Over...

My husband and I finally plugged our way through the final season of the Gilmore Girls, and I have to admit to being quite satisfied with it. I'd read a few reviews or maybe some blog commentary that it was too pat, too sugar-sweet, but I disagree. I think there was plenty of sad to temper the happy-go-lucky, and I think it tied up several loose ends very nicely.

I had fun watching. We never watched the show while it was on television, and after it went off the air, I just had to see what I was missing. So we plowed our way through seven seasons worth, borrowed from the library, and Lorelai and Rory wormed their way into both our hearts (my husband's very grudgingly)

I love the fast pace and the in-your-face dialog, but one thing that kinda bugged me about the show was that everybody talked fast and furious. Initially I got the impression that it was just going to be the Gilmore girls, but almost everyone in the show talks at a fever pitch. What's up with that? It's a small town--slow down and take it easy!

Anyway...just thought I'd put that out there. I haven't watched Pushing Up Daisies yet...maybe that's next for me.

I might have to copy you and go out and check out some seasons. I watched most of the first seasons, but I'm not sure how many I missed at the end. Two? Three? You're SO right about the dialogue. It was like a speed-talking contest on the show! Sometimes it was more obvious than others but luckily I didn't find it too bothersome.

I notice that when I watch 3-4 episodes of Gilmore Girls in a row I start talking really fast & make a lot of dorothy parker references. I love the way the show ended, it was just as it should have been.

I haven't watched them yet, but everyone who has seems to really enjoy them. Maybe that will be Science Guy and my next group of video's. :)

For those who haven't watched yet, I do highly recommend the series. Although, as my husband says, 'It's like an overdose of estrogen'.

Stacy, Vicki, love the new pictures!

"I love the fast pace and the in-your-face dialog" - The banter between Lorelai and Rory was one of my favorite things about the show. That and Lorelai's tortured relationship with her mom. I haven't seen it in aeons and was thinking of renting the DVDs. I guess I will.

Definitely watch Pushing Daisies. It is a great show.
