Did You Know?


The character of Lane Kim is based on Helen Pai, a co-producer of the show and the best friend of creator Amy Sherman-Palladino. See more »


The iconic last cut in the opening credits for each and every season is an external shot of Luke's diner (we can see Lorelai, Rory, and Luke inside). This cut is from the last scene of the pilot. However, in the pilot, Luke's diner is a stand-alone building in the middle of a block on a busy street rather than a corner unit adjacent to the town square with windows facing in two directions and a door set in from the corner. The shot pulls back so that we can see the door and address. It can't be the Luke's we know from every episode after the pilot. The interior is a bit different as well. See more »


Lorelai: No, Mom, I'm shopping for Rory. You're shopping for your imaginary granddaughter, Barbara Hutton.

the best ever
23 December 2004 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

i do not exactly know, which audience this show is meant to appeal to. i am a single male in my late thirties with a long history of being in love with my best female "friend". so of course, it will always be the Luke-lorelai relationship that will appeal to me. but the way lorelai interacts with her parents, the way, the town's community is depicted, the sheer speed of a 45 minute drama/comedy, are all simply wonderful. in a lot of ways, it reminds me of thirties' screwball comedies, you know the ones, katherine hepburn, cary grant. anyway, this show is perfectly written, directed and acted. it's a pleasure to watch. my previous favourite shows have been "northern exposure", "picket fences", "buffy" (oh yes) and "frasier". "gilmore girls" took the best of all of them and put it together. i hope, they can keep this sort of level and i hope it will never stop.
