I came very late to the Gilmore Girls party. I didn’t really watch much TV or read many magazines from 2000-2005, so its heyday passed me by. It wrapped in 2007, and was sporadic in its scheduling over here anyway, so the phenomenon pretty much passed me by!
This all changed about two years ago, when I bought the first season on DVD, and promptly fell in love with all the quirky inhabitants of Stars Hollow. I love Lorelai and Rory (qualifier: I love them most of the time. Sometimes they are so pigheaded and/ or capricious I just want to shake them), adore Sookie, and definitely want to be Emily Gilmore. Seriously – those suits? The pearls? Amazing. When I discovered she was a Junior League member I literally clapped with glee. There’s a very real danger if I ever procreate and it’s a girl, then her name will probably be Emily Lorelai or Lorelai Emily!
What can I say, after watching seven seasons in two years, I’m a little attached to the characters.
Don’t you love when that happens with shows or characters? I will always have a soft spot for Claire Danes and Joshua Jackson, primarily because of the 1990s based awesomeness of Angela Chase and Pacey Witter.
Do you have any characters you are inordinately fond of? Let’s geek out, friends.
