Editorial Reviews

Perennially one of the WB's highest-rated series, Gilmore Girls hit its creative high point to date with its stellar fifth season, which started out with young Rory (Alexis Bledel) feeling the fallout of doing something terribly non-Rory-like: sleeping with Dean (Jared Padalecki), her married ex-boyfriend. Rory's indulgence in adultery put, for the first time, a serious, sharp wedge in her relationship with her mother, Lorelai (Lauren Graham), who was both shocked by her daughter's behavior and worried Rory would repeat the mistakes Lorelai made at her age. But while Rory jetted off to Europe with her grandmother (Kelly Bishop) for the summer, Lorelai finally got her relationship with diner owner Luke (Scott Patterson) into a serious groove, starting with an official (and incredibly sweet) first date and others that involved, if you can believe it, a Swedish Pippi Longstocking movie. And as Lorelai navigated romantic terrain in Stars Hollow (terrain that of course did not run smooth), Rory found life more complex in her second year at Yale, as her relationship with Dean became increasingly strained. Not only that, she found her attention turned towards preppy Logan (Matt Czurchy), a spoiled rich kid who represented everything Rory couldn't stand--and was of course immediately attracted to. Little did Rory know that Logan's entrance into her life, and her interaction with his family, would be the catalyst for one of the most momentous decisions she would ever make.

With this season of Gilmore Girls, creative forces Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino finally found a way to make the Stars Hollow-Yale dichotomy work perfectly, as each location still stood alone but had decided repercussions on the other. Gone were freshman-year anxieties for Rory and in their place were more adult romantic concerns as well as a class consciousness that, for the first serious time, found Rory on the side of the haves and not the have-nots. While the Rory-Dean drama played itself out nicely and succinctly, it was the devilish Logan who lit a fire underneath this Gilmore girl; the episode "You Jump, I Jump, Jack" was a lovely twist on the '30s romantic comedies that found rich folk at play with words and deeds. Bledel started to fully blossom as Rory grew from ingénue to leading lady, and she was matched peerlessly by Graham, whose passion, anger, stubbornness, and ravishing beauty all came to a head in "Wedding Bell Blues," which featured her two greatest nemeses: her mother and Rory's dad, Christopher (David Sutcliffe). The show's trademark eccentricities were all in place--including a Pulp Fiction party and an elementary school production of Fiddler on the Roof, among other things--but it mined the best drama of its run with the season's last four episodes, which found Rory's confidence shaken to the core. To give any of the proceedings away would spoil the drama, but suffice it to say you will be glued to the TV for this season's final four hours; it's Gilmore Girls at its phenomenal best. --Mark Englehart

Product Description

Gilmore rising: Lorelai. The Dragonfly Inn is a huge success. And Lorelai's romance with Luke (the just-gotta-be relationship fans have waited for!) steams up Stars Hollow. Gilmore going down: Rory. College, boys and career plans crash and burn, leaving the once-confident golden girl reeling. Fasten your seat belt for a fabulously funny and heartbreakingly dramatic Season 5. The wit, charm and eccentricity that have created legions of Gilmore Girls devotees are on glorious display in all 22 episodes of the hit series' fifth year. Adding more sparkle is the brilliant array of totally off-kilter, totally engaging supporting characters: Sookie, Paris, Lane, Kirk, Michel, the imperious Gilmore pere et mere and a townful more. See you in Stars Hollow!

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Great In Season Five October 17, 2005
Gilmore Girls is one of those rare shows that has maintained a consistently high standard of quality throughout its run and has even managed to get better with age. The show started with the Lorelei (Lauren Graham) & Rory (Alexis Bledel) as mother & daughter who are best friends. Rory was an innocent intellectual who was starting a prestigious high school as sophomore. Through the years, the show has transformed her from a young girl who lost herself in books and education to a young woman who is experiencing life first-hand. The change started at the end of season four when Rory sleeps with her ex-boyfriend, the married Dean (Jared Padalecki) and continues in this season with her relationship with the rich Logan Huntzberger (Matt Czuchry). The change in Rory is startling and Lorelei has a tough time dealing with it thus creating rift between the two. This season also shows the blossoming of her relationship with Luke (Scott Patterson) and how that relationship is handled by her parents Emily (Kelly Bishop) and Richard (Edward Hermann). One particular funny episode involves Richard taking Luke golfing. The best episodes of the season involve Richard & Emily's wedding to renew their vows and the fall-out from Emily's visit to Rory's father Christopher (David Sutcliffe) who shows up at the wedding and gets into a verbal fight with Luke. The season ends with Rory and Logan stealing a yacht and Rory decides to drop out of Yale. Lorelei goes to her parents for help in this matter and they agree Rory shouldn't drop out. They provide the cruelest slap of all in Lorelei's face when they renege on their promise and Rory ends up moving into the pool house. Ms. Graham is particular superb in this season and fact she was snubbed for an Emmy nomination is criminal. Gilmore Girls continues to be among the best shows on television and season five only reinforces it greatness.

5.0 out of 5 stars The season of Luke and Lorelai September 18, 2005
The fifth season of Gilmore Girls might as well be named the Luke-Lorelai season, because basically that's what it was. From their first date, to thier breaking up, to Lorelai popping the question, it is obvious to me that they belong together. The break-up showed that. Luke was miserable without her, trying to find excuses to be near her, and Lorelai couldn't sit up! The whole point of the short break-up was to show that they belong together. It would be a major dissapointment to me if Luke and Lorelai didn't end the series together. After the great Luke-Lorelai romance, where could they go? Bring back Christopher? I don't think so.

On to Rory... seasons 1-3 were basically about Lorelai and Rory. Thier relationship, and being best friends. When Rory went off to college, it was hard for them to stay as close. Despite a few exceptions(Rory visiting Lorelai in bed after Luke breaks up with her) there were few great Lorelai-Rory moments this season. This makes sense, because Rory is off to college, so some seperation is inevitable. Rory... has changed, and needless to say that has made many Rory fans unhappy. However, I think change is inevitable, especially when going off to college. And you can't blame it all on Logan. Although I don't nesesarrilly condone Rory's actions, I think her changes are more realistic than if should would have stayed exactly the same from ages 16-20.

I liked Logan. I have to say that he was better than Dean, and way better the Jess(the jerk). Logan treats her right, so what he likes to have some fun? What has he really done to Rory or while he was with Rory that was all that bad? He stood up to his family when they attacked her at the dinner. Rory dragged him to steal the yacht, not the other way around.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoying a Renessiance of a Year September 9, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After a brutal year that left fans guessing up until the last minute whether or not the girls would be back for a fifth season, comes what many fans argue as the best season of the series.

Focussing on Lorelai and Luke's blossoming relationship, as well as Rory's ventures into adulthood with sex and matural relationships, Gilmore girls starts to retreate into the teritory of the first couple years, bringing back the charm that was so veyr much missed over seasons 3 & 4.

Durring the Emmy Nominations times, there was alot of buzz going around about how this coule be the year that Lauren Graham gets a nomination, but eventhough she was overlooked again (in favor of 3 housewives) this season still remains the strongest season to date.

Special Features Include: The 100th Episode with Commentary by Creator Amy-Sherman Paladino (this is the first gilmore commentary!), behind-the-scenes footage, trivia, and more.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Gilmores are back in full force October 1, 2005
It happens on many shows that when one or more of the principal characters transitions from high school to college, the series sometimes loses its footing. Gilmore Girls did lose some of what made it loveable from previous seasons in their fourth season. Though good as always, the fourth season was lacking and it was a new dynamic to get used to. However, any charm and wit that were lost in the fourth season are reclaimed in Gilmore's fifth and strongest season to date.

Season 5 explores Rory's journey into adulthood as she begins to embrace the life that her mother ran away from. Rory's relationship with the wealthy Logan Huntzberger unnerves her mother as much as it thrills and pleases her grandparents. We also see the long-awaited blossoming (and often tested) romance of Lorelai and Luke. The audience is also exposed to a side of Richard and Emily that was only hinted at in previous seasons; their obsession with class, breeding and appearances. It manifests itself in horrible ways, driving a wedge between both Rory and Lorelai, as well as Lorelai and her mother with whom she had been on relatively good terms with in season 4.

The bonds between mother and daughter are tested both at the end and the beginning of season 5, in ways never before seen on this loveable, relatable and well-written season. Gilmore Girls has definitely emerged as a series that transcends all ages, races and genders.
