There was much talk and debate over Gilmore Girls' fourth season. Some thought it was great and that it was one of their best seasons. Others thought that it had a lot of good stuff, but had problems and was, quite easily, it's weakest season. I can't say that it's a bad season, because it's not. The second half contains some truly great episodes, but season four was a disjointed disappointment. The show went through a transition this year, and shows that go through a certain 'growing up' phase do have some problems. They usually don't go through it unscathed. Season four of GG is no exception. Rory leaves home and Stars Hollow and goes off to live in her dorm at Yale. This leaves a new, and awkward, dynamic between mother and daughter and the show. The relationship between the two was a major factor of the series, and the fact that they spoke to one another on cell phones more than anything else it seemed was also a component that didn't add to the season. They added in the character of Jason 'Digger' Stiles, and most people didn't really like him or warm up to him. This was not actor Chris Eigelman's fault, as he was good. The only actor who could match Lauren Graham's rapid speak and quick wit. Lorelei also had new developments in her life. She and Sookie were getting serious about opening their own inn, and in the meantime, take on careers as caterers. It seemed that the writers had a hard time settling into their new set ups and situations, and it left the show disjointed, misguided, and just not the same show. This was mostly during the first half of the season, although there were some highlights. "Chicken Or Beef" was a classic GG episode dealing with Rory running into ex Dean, who invites her to his upcoming wedding.Read more ›

Although reviewers were quick to criticize season four, no one will deny that the last few episodes of the season were some of the best the show has ever brought forth.

Season four brings Lorelei and Rory to a new place in their relationship. Rory moves out of the house and into the dorms, and Lorelei struggles with the realities of bringing her life-long dream of owning an inn to fruition. Through phone conversations and Friday night dinners the girls struggle to keep their relationship as close as it once was. Dean reappears as a married man, Luke is as funny and endearing as ever, and the elder Gilmores struggle to adjust to changes in their marriage. Digger and the lawyer prove amusing distractions to the real love story, which finally reaches its beginning in a satisfying scene outside the Dragonfly. And lets not forget about the final scene, which left everyone in shock - because when Rory messes up - she messes up big.

This collection is a must have for any Gilmore Girls enthusiast. Don't listen to the naysayers. There are a lot of gems to be found throughout season four.

Nominated for 1 Emmy and 1 Golden Globe in its first five seasons, Gilmore Girls has experienced much greater success among TV viewers than among industry critics. In fact, the show is the first script supported by the Family Friendly Forum's script development fund to go on and become a regular television series. Part of an initiative between The WB Network - maker of such hits as Dawson's Creek (1998), Felicity (1998), Angel (1999), and Smallville (2001) - and fellow industry executives, this push for more family-oriented programming resulted in a series showcasing a unique mother-daughter bond and the various people they encounter on their life voyage of discovery. Set in the fictional town of Stars Hollow, Connecticut, Gilmore Girls utilizes many of the same sets as the hit series The Dukes Of Hazzard (1979) - another successful Warner Brothers production from years past...

Gilmore Girls is set in a small idyllic community in Connecticut filled with a wide range of diverse characters and eccentric personalities. Against this backdrop, Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) attempts to raise her daughter and best friend, Rory Gilmore (Alexis Bledel), to carve out a better life for herself. Having made a number of youthful mistakes, Lorelai made the decision to raise her daughter by herself at a young age (the same age as Rory when the series begins), and she's bound and determined to make sure that Rory makes better decisions for herself. As Rory prepares to go off to college, she displays many of the same likes and dislikes as her mother - especially when it comes to the opposite sex, and that's what worries Lorelai the most...

As always, this season is laced with witty banter, charming humor, and verbal sparring that makes the show what it is. This season brings truth to the world of Stars Hollow, as life gets more complicated for Rory and her mother: being close isn't so easy from different towns, let alone entirely different worlds. Rory begins Yale and along with her great sense of style, she also brings that famous naivete and innonence we know and love. She realizes that a lot more exists beyond her little hometown, and with that revelation comes a sense of loss for Lorelai. The only reason somebody wouldn't enjoy this season is if they were looking for an unrealistic portrayal of life! The Gilmore Girls is real, clever, and always heart-warming in a non-cliche way. I have never found a better show for all ages, and especially for women. Never a dull moment, nothing overdone, and all the drama that we need to keep us waiting for more. This season is just as amazing as all the rest...may there be many more to come!
