Goofs

Sets which should be somewhat permanent change, especially in early seasons. The foyer of Lorelai and Rory's house in S1 does not open to the living room, but it does for subsequent seasons. Luke's apartment changes frequently, with the bathroom moving from one side of the apartment in S1 to the other in S2. The cash register in the diner switches from one end of the counter to the other regularly in the first couple of seasons. The elder Gilmore's house changes as well. These are in addition to very large changes from pilot to series. See more »

Outstanding Drama, Writing and Cast
18 December 2000 | by (San Diego, California) – See all my reviews

I have no idea what's going on with Friends this year. I started watching Gilmore Girls because I knew Scott Cohen was going to guest-star. I stayed with Gilmore Girls because the acting is really good (I love the actors who play Lorelai, Rory, Sookie and Luke), the writing and pace are excellent, and the theme is so similar to situations I have faced in my own life. The best thing about the show has been the budding romance between Lorelai Gilmore (played by Lauren Graham) and Max Medina (played by Scott Cohen). These two actors have magical chemistry. On top of that, the "Love, War and Snow" episode of 12/14/00 used the theme of magical snowfall in Lorelai's life to underscore the romance. Brilliant, high quality writing. I want MORE!
