Yes, while you are hooked on Modern Family and Homeland and Arrested Development and Breaking Bad, I’m visiting Stars Hollow, Connecticut, trying to follow the fast-paced banter of the mother-daughter duo called the Gilmore Girls.

I expect happy endings all around, but it will be a sad day for me nonetheless.

    I love the Gilmore Girls! Over a series of Christmases, Dad and Mom eventually bought me each season. Good times. (and now I’m hooked on Parenthood which is currently on it’s 5th season, and happens to feature one of the Gilmore Girls)

    Jessi and I “bonded” over this series. We watched it together faithfully. A few years ago she gave me the whole series for Christmas! I still can’t re-watch the episode where Laurelei comes home to the empty room after Rory goes off to college….way too close to home! And re the room: what happened to the sewing machine? πŸ™‚
