Just Keeps Getting Better With Each New Season,
This review is from: Gilmore Girls: Season 3 (Digipack) (DVD)
The third season of "Gilmore Girls" is probably the most perfectly realized year of the series yet released on DVD. Okay, Lorelai (the amazing and totally hot Lauren Graham) maybe isn't as prominently featured as we would like, but her relationship with Luke keeps deepening in preparation for its full flowering this year in season 5. Season 3 has lots of action for Rory (the terrific Alexis Bledel): academic pressure during her senior year at Chilton; first friends, then enemies, then friends again with the hilariously nasty Paris (the great Liza Weil) and her airhead flunkies Madeline and Louise; the traumatic dance-marathon break-up with Dean and subsequent stormy relationship with that little punk Jess.
The season kicks off with probably my favorite two Gilmore moments, at the beginning and at the end of the episode "Those Lazy-Crazy-Hazy Days": Lorelai's dream that she is pregnant with Luke's twins, and their reconciliation in a deserted Luke's diner at the climax. These two scenes, with their splendid blend of wise-ass humor and genuine emotion, are typical of what makes this series so special. If you purchase these discs, you just may wear them out by playing them so much.
