Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Lorelai: Rory is very low maintenance. Kind of like that robot kid in A.I., only way less mother-obsessed. Oh my God, that kid was so annoying. I would've pushed him out of the car while it was still moving.

Thoughtful show
24 November 2004 | by sadisticbelizeanSee all my reviews

While it may appear to be a chick thing, I enjoy watching this show. The characters are not stereotypical and stand out thanks to the great job of both writers and actors (I especially enjoy Melissa McCarthy and Liza Weil's portrayal of their characters), the show is chock full of wit (that is if your brain is quick enough to register the references made through the fast speech) and the plot, from what I have seen, is more than sufficient to keep you wanting to see more.

My favorite thing about the show is that, unlike other dramas, it isn't too over the top. The plot progresses smoothly and slowly (just slow enough), and while the show changes as time passes, it doesn't change so completely as other shows in the same genre would. It is a perfect example of that while life changes, it is a subtle change, not an overt one.

I would recommend anyone in search of intelligent, witty television to watch this show. I give it a 9 out of 10, and I hope that it stays on the air for years to come.
