Grunt like a gorilla.
I will not grunt like a gorilla.
If you grunt like a gorilla I'll tell you what color underwear I'm wearing.
Had you considering the grunt, didn't I?

OK, I admit it... I started to watch this show because I knew my favorite actor, Scott Cohen, was going to be a guest star. (My family tapes the episodes and sends them to me here.) I fully intended to stop watching it after his appearances were done. But, somewhere along the line I found myself enjoying the show even when Scott wasn't a guest star. The writing is absolutely wonderful. Lorelei's verbal comebacks are some of the best I've ever heard -- her verbal banter with Max in the coffee shop scene of the Cinnamon's Wake episode is one of my favorite scenes. It's warm, funny, serious, and just all-round enjoyable. Lauren Graham is perfect as Lorelei, and special kudos go to Alexis Bledel as Rory... for a first time actress, she's done a marvelous job. I very much enjoy Kelly Bishop and Edward Hermann as Lorelei's parents. And Max... well, I think I'd like him even if he wasn't played by my favorite actor :). My thanks to Scott Cohen -- if he hadn't been on this show, I would have missed something very special.
