Gilmore Girls – Season 6, Episode 1

A lot of message board discussion has surrounded the creators of the show leaving and whether the new showrunner would be able to maintain the trademark dialogue that makes Gilmore Girls what it is.  My response is: Good Riddence.  I’m sorry that they didn’t get enough money to keep them interested in the show they created but let’s face it: Last year sucked.  Further leaving the new showrunners with the ending last season of Lorelai sleeping with Christopher (something I think wasn’t in line with the characters) was just mean.

I liked this episode.  If I didn’t know that there was new blood on the show I wouldn’t have thought twice about it.  The discussion about racquetball, the traffic camera and the whole rocket/ Twilight Zone gift was well  in line with the show’s roots.   I even think Lorelai’s attitude to Luke throughout the show clearly came through as a guilty person who doesn’t want to deal with the hard truth of what she did.  Luke’s return at the end of the show and Lorelai’s blunt statement about her sleeping with Christopher is sure to push the show in interesting directions.

    i actually just read that the new writers on gilmore girls are from everwood, which may explain the stronger start. what a sad loss to my television week-which was pretter selective in the first place. I don’t watch the show, but, if the folks from everwood are in fact on board then i may have to start watching.

    Cara,
    I would recommend Brothers & Sisters then for your Everwood fix. The creator is now running this show and Dr. Brown is joining the cast. Not sure if it will pan out but worth a try.
    Also, don’t forget that Bright is going to be on the OC.
