Season four marks a year of transitions for the Gilmores. Lorelai quits her job as manager of the Independence Inn, realizing her ambition of opening an inn of her own, The Dragonfly, with her best friend, Sookie (Melissa McCarthy, Samantha Who?). But various setbacks make renovating the new inn harder than Lorelai could have imagined. Lorelai and Sookie start a catering business to help pay for the expenses, made all the more difficult because Sookie is pregnant. Meanwhile, Rory is adjusting to her new life at Yale University, coping with the trials and tribulations that come with living at college. The stress of academia is bundled with having to handle her eccentric fellow students, especially her roommates, and the pressure of achieving her dream of becoming a journalist. All the while, the Gilmore girls still have to deal with Lorelai's parents every Friday night, the men of love lives past and the relationships of those who come in and out of Stars Hollow.]]>
The first half of the fourth season definitely foundered, as the show's usually topnotch creative team struggled to find a way to keep the Gilmore chemistry afloat despite separating their main characters. There wasn't much drama to be found for Rory in starting college, and though it got off to a great start, Lorelai's relationship with Jason never fully gelled. However, once the show got its girls into the arms of their Stars Hollow men, it turned around almost immediately, surging towards a creative revival that put its ratings higher than they'd ever been before. Along the way to its surprising and complex season finale, there were great episodes to be had: "Girls in Bikinis, Boys Doin' the Twist," which found Rory and Paris on spring break; "The Reigning Lorelai," centering on an unexpected funeral; "The Festival of Living Art," which had Stars Hollow resident re-creating classic works; and "Luke Can See Her Face," which finally brought the Luke-Lorelai romance to the forefront. The season may have started out rough, but this fourth year ended with a bang, and the promise of more fireworks to come. --Mark Englehart

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.
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...Read more ›
