Summary of "The Complete 5th Season - Kirk cracks me up": Ah, the Gilmore's finally get some bad luck. The show has been quite cheery up until now, so it's nice to see them get a good dose of reality. Yup, real life isn't all peachy, though it would be nice if it were. I'm not rooting against them or anything, but conflict and problems make for better TV.
I have a complaint about this set; the Gilmore-isms booklet is gone! Instead of including the normal booklet with the set they've decided to post it on a website. It's just not the same. I like the cute little booklet with the funny words in it, and I like it in the DVD set. Woah, did that sound like a Lorelai rant or what? Seriously though, booklet = good, content on website = bad. Why is it bad? Well, I'm writing up this review and guess what? That's right, my internet is down! That means I can't access the website, and I can't read the funny words.
I realized a horrible, horrible thing while watching this set. Actually, I realized it awhile ago, but I forget it, so I re-realized it. We're all caught up! The next set, season 6, can't be released right now because the season isn't done airing. That means from now on we'll only get one season a year. It's horrible! (read entire review)
The Complete 4th Season - College time! (10/12/2005)
Summary of "The Complete 4th Season - College time!": I don't usually care for theme songs one way or the other, but I hate the Gilmore Girls theme. I usually hold the remote in my hand so I can skip it, and I'm ticked when I hear the start of the song. I forced myself to sit through the entire opening for one episode; never again. I think I need help.
I'm always amused by the reaction women have when I tell them I watch this show. They seem to think I'm bluffing, trying to use their love for the series for evil. They'll ask me questions about the characters, and they're always surprised when I get the answers right. Never question whether I actually watch a show, because I probably do.
I'm excited because Warner Bros has already announced the 5th season for release on December 13th. Season 6 has just begun airing, so that will catch us up to the broadcast season. The good news is that we'll finally be caught up, but the bad news is we'll only get one season a year from then on. Ack! (read entire review)
The Complete 3rd Season - Bye bye Chilton (5/27/2005)
Summary of "The Complete 3rd Season - Bye bye Chilton": Sometimes I'm dumb. Like the night I looked at the clock, saw it was 11:00 and decided to watch one episode of Gilmore Girls before bed. I should have known that I'd rather watch this show than sleep, and 3 hours later (4 episodes), I was rubbing my eyes and looking at the clock. Note to self - spending time with the Gilmore's is more fun than sleeping; don't start watching episodes late at night.
I've decided something; Kirk is my favorite character in the show. He's weird, but he's not on the screen enough to be annoying. He's always "Kirk," but he's usually playing a different version of himself (mailman Kirk, exterminator Kirk, dance contest Kirk). Sean Gunn must have a blast playing all those different Kirks.
In my review of season 2 I professed my love for this show, even though I'm a 27-year-old guy. I received a flood of emails from other guys around my age telling me that they loved the show too. It may be aimed at females, but guys can love this show as well.
Summary of "The Complete 2nd Season - The Gilmores Rock!": I love this show. Yes, that's right, I'm a 27 year old guy, and I love Gilmore Girls. It's not a sappy make-me-barf show; it's witty, with quick dialog and an insane number of references to books, theater, music, TV and movies. There were two notable guest appearances in season 2, at least for me. Bryce Johnson appeared in episode 9, and I had just finished watching him in Popular, a WB show that premiered in 1999. Then there's Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy) who was hilarious in episode 21. This was his first live-action appearance, and he's back for another episode in season 3 (they obviously liked him).
Pick up this show; it's fun, and cute, and I can't say that about many shows on TV these days. (read entire review)
The Complete 1st Season - Fast talking (5/06/2004)
I really enjoyed this show, and I wasn't expecting to. It's so different from the cop shows and fast-paced series I normally watch, and I think that's why I enjoyed it. It's good wholesome fun that families can enjoy together. I was just at a local retailer, and I asked them how it was selling (very well) and the girl mentioned that she's seen a lot of mothers and daughters coming to buy it together. Speaking of mothers, this is a set that a certain special someone may enjoy getting this Sunday (May 9th). Here's a tip guys - buy it for your mom and then watch it when she's not around (I won't tell). (read entire review)
