Since watching the first episode of the first season, I have come to love this show and it is definitely now my favorite.

With that said, even when it's at it's worst, just like Buffy, it's still better than almost anything else out there.

I have been a fan of the 'Gilmore Girls' since the second episode of the series (I never saw the pilot until the DVD release), and ever since that episode I had been hooked into this wonderful, magical, comedic, and heartfilled world with these characters.

Season six starts off on a much different note, taking the show in a direction that it has never been: What would things be like if Lorelai and Rory where no longer friends, and never spoke? After the rift between mother and daughter at the end of the fifth season, Rory dropped out of Yale and moved in with her Grandparents, aliennating her mother, who was eccentially at a loss for words on the entire subject.

Trying to make up for each other's loss Rory starts to go down a path of wallowing and denial as her relationship with Logan gets more and more serious. Lorelai on the otherhand has a wedding to plan and a new dog to take care off.

Lorelai Gilmore, as played by the wonderful Lauren Graham, is usually the merriest of characters, a wellspring of fun and laughter. However, in this sixth season of "Gilmore Girls" she is forced to cope with levels of disappointment and heartache unprecedented in the show's history. The first half of the season Lorelai is estranged from her usually "freakishly close" daughter, Rory (angelic Alexis Bledel); and in the second half she watches in anguish as her fiance and soulmate Luke (Scott Patterson) slips away from her.

Some fans of the series were upset by the Lorelai's rift (including reportedly Graham herself) but I thought it was a daring move by the writers. Rory has always been a little too good to be entirely believable, and it was interesting to watch Bledel's fine work at displaying Rory's bafflement in screwing up her life. Graham also shone as she showed Lorelai's stoicism and trademark mental toughness as well as the grief lurking underneath. When the reconciliation finally came it was a classic Gilmore moment.

The revelation of Luke's long-lost daughter was derided by many as a "Cousin Oliver" moment, and I had problems myself with the haphazard plot mechanics. But the emotional content of the storyline rang true. Scott Patterson was touching as a man clearly in over his head, and once again Graham was heartrending as Lorelai desperately tried to hang on. This season the many, many laughs were balanced by a lot of tears and some viewers didn't like it. But if you view this season as part of the journey and not the final destination I think you will get a better perspective. We all await with some trepidation a new season without the Palladinos, but given the set-up of this eventful sixth season the next could be fascinating.

Format: DVD
First, I'm not a kid, but I don't want my personal details attached to this review. Having said that, I didn't particularly care for where the show went in this season. I think that the quality of the writing seriously decreased since season 5.

Having said that, I find serious faults with this DVD release:

1. Instead of the book style of the previous five seasons, wherein each disc has it's own plastic "page", this set has the six discs on three pages, with two overlapping discs per page. This makes it incredibly frustrating when taking out or putting back the bottom disc of each page (because you have to take out both discs, then put the top disc back).

2. There are NO ENGLISH SUBTITLES! I used this feature quite often in the previous five seasons for two primary reasons: a) because the characters talk so fast, it's sometimes hard for me to understand them; and b) because it's hard for me to understand Michel. Warner Bros apparently decided in their infinite wisdom to only include French and Spanish subtitles on this season.

3. On the fourth (last) episode of Disc 3, you will notice a serious degradation of quality. During the second chapter of the episode (right after the opening credits; 2:15:30 into the disc, which is 1:49 into chapter 23), you will notice the color get much darker and the quality will drop. It's almost as if someone turned a light off during the filming.

4. There are NO SPECIAL FEATURES! In each of the previous five seasons, there have been special features -- deleted scenes, featurettes, facts/trivia, etc. In this season, there is nothing. It's as if Warner Bros decided that it wasn't worthwhile to put any time or effort into this DVD set.

All-in-all, I'm quite unhappy about this purchase.
