Is it just me?
11 January 2005 | by BMatth6167See all my reviews

I know the rest of the critical world has endowed this show with the highest of accolades. Numerous websites are straining their voices to sing it's praises. So am I the only one who finds these characters so annoying I want to scream? I cannot remember a show that was so desperate to be adored, that went so far out of it's way to be precious. I've tried a couple of times to get interested in it. After all, with so many praises being heaped upon it, there must be something, SOMETHING I'm just not seeing. And every time I watch it I'm ready to strangle every character on the show within ten minutes. I watch the lead characters of Lorelai and Rory (could they have possibly been given more precious, saccharinely "darling" names?) and keep waiting for one of these characters in this mother/daughter relationship to behave like an adult. A REAL adult, not the kind of hip, cool writer's-creation version of an adult that could only exist in a television show (usually found on the WB).

I'm growing to hate this show more and more each time I see it. Unfortunately, syndication is making it increasingly difficult for me to avoid it. It's cloying and annoying, and if you are someone who prefers your television with at least a touch of reality, I recommend avoiding this one at all costs.
