"The Show That Almost Wasn't."
That's the most surprising lesson learned about the nature of television production -- as told by the show's creator Amy Sherman-Palladino -- in the WB's stellar GILMORE GIRLS release: Ms. S-P had pitched a variety of programs for WB executives, and, when they asked for more, she made up an idea on the spot -- with no preparation or background detail -- which the executives took! Then, Ms. S-P had to go and create it.
GILMORE GIRLS arguably stands as a benchmark in television history. In some ways, the program is like SEINFELD: if you don't get it, you won't get it. In other ways, it's a high quality Hallmark Channel movie-of-the-week, currently stretching out beyond its fourth season and soon to be entering its fifth. Still, in more ways, there's absolutely nothing else like it on television.
GG is far more than just the story of Lorelai Gilmore and her daughter, Lorelai "Rory" Gilmore: it's the story of the fictional town known as Star's Hollow -- the dreamland for bed-n-breakfast businesses -- and the odd assortment of characters who happen to live, work, and breathe there. While the centerpiece is clearly the Gilmore family -- a contemporization of the BRADY BUNCH, if there could ever be such a thing -- the spin of the show is, to its benefit, the plethora of wonderfully imagined and uniquely quirky townsfolk who populate the secondary storylines.
And, yes, the acting is top notch. The direction is absolutely superb. The writing is, by far, some of the most deserving work being put up on the boob tube today.
Still, GG is on the WB, meaning that it will, more than likely, never find the kind of ratings the show deserves. Like STAR TREK, GILMORE will find its true financial potential in syndication and DVD releases ...

No vampires to slay. No kryptonite "Freaks of the Week." No friggin creeks that you wish the series' namesake to drown in. Nothing but a well-written, wonderfully cast show that is long overdue for a DVD release. When the first season DVD release hits shelves, the fourth season should be close to wrapping up on the WB, and hopefully will continue everything about the show that made the first episodes so enjoyable.
Set in a fictional Connecticut town called Stars Hollow, The Gilmore Girls follows the lives of Lorelai and Rory Gilmore, a a single mother and teenage daughter who share a bond that is as much best friends as it is that of a mother and child. The series begins with Rory's acceptance into the prestigious Chilton Academy and Lorelai's frantic desire to make that happen, which much to her chagrin, involves the help of her own mother, Emily Gilmore (played by the excellent Kelly Bishop) and father Richard (Edward Herman). Growing up the rebellious daughter of wealthy society types and becoming pregnant at age 16 didn't exactly endear them to each other. It is Lorelai's relationship with her parents that drives much of her character's motivation.
While life as a single mother might be hard, Lorelai is not without a support system. Stars Hollow is populated with an impressive collection of colorful characters, from the gruff, flannel-wearing diner owner, Luke, to Lorelai's coworker and best friend Sookie and the annoying Frenchman, Michel.
Rory, too, has a group of close friends and even closer enemies. Lane Kim, daughter of a Korean Bible beater is the music obsessed best friend, Dean (Jared Padelecki) is her first boyfriend and Paris, her academic and social rival.

I have to admit that I'm as macho as the next guy. I like action movies, sci-fi and comedy. When I first heard of Gilmore Girls I just wrote it off as another show that I would skip. That is until I actually saw an episode. That one episode opened my eyes and forced me to expand my definition of quality television. I have never encounted a show whose dialogue was so SHARP and yet managed to stay so close to how real people would react. The charecters, both main and in the background, are memorable and unique. And I will say to anyone who asks, whoever made the decision to cast the parts of Rory and Lorilei were absolutely brilliant. The chemistry between the two just takes your breath away. It blows my mind that I have to keep reminding myself that they are not mother and daughter in real life. I think what ultimately draws me as a viewer is that way it perfectly mixes sharp dialogue, drama, humor, and most of all the way it shows not just whats going on on the surface of a person but underneath as well. I still proudly call myself a guy. Its just that now guys who are into quality television have Gilmore Girls to add to their list as well

Welcome to Stars Hollow. A small, quaint town in New England. A town where everybody knows each other, and with people slightly eccentric living there, the place never gets boring.
Lorelai Gilmore moved to Stars Hollow one year after giving birth to her daughter Lorelai Leigh (Rory for short) at the sweet and very young age of sixteen. Being the strong, independent woman that she is, she refuses any help from her parents on raising Rory. Oh, did I mention that Lorelai and her mother do not get along at all? That is sort of the reason why she moved out.
The 21 great episodes are:
01 Pilot : Rory (now 15) gets accepted to Chilton, and Lorelai asks her parents to help her out with Rory's tuition. Rory meets a boy named Dean and changes her mind about Chilton.
02 The Lorelai's First Day At Chilton : Lorelai oversleeps on Rory's first day and to her dismay, all her good clothes are at the cleaners. Students at Chilton determine to make Rory's life miserable.
03 Kill Me Now : Rory is required to take up a sport. Emily suggests Richard takes Rory golfing. Rory has a great time with her grandfather, and Lorelai gets upset.
04 The Deer Hunters : Rory gets her first "D" in her life. Lorelai helps Rory study for her English test that is 20% of her grade. They oversleep and Rory gets into a car accident.
05 Cinnamon's Wake : Rory's English teacher, Max Medina, asks Lorelai out. The town mourns Babbette and Mory's cat, Cinnamon.
06 Rory's Birthday Parties : It's Rory's birthday and Emily and Lorelai both want to throw the teenager a birthday party.
07 Kiss and Tell : Dean gives Rory her first kiss. Rory is afraid to tell her mom about it, and Lorelai ends up hearing about the kiss from Mrs. Kim, Lane's, Rory's bestfriend, mom.
