WOW….. not too eloquent, but really all I can say after returning from an afternoon away from my MAC (computer & dog) to come home and discover 21 (and counting) very interesting comments with regards to my upcoming interview with David Sutcliffe.
I must say I’m disappointed (not really surprised) at the negative tone of some of the comments. I think fans of the show have to keep in mind a few things:
1) David is an actor doing a job! While I understand Luke & Lorelai Shippers desperately want to see them happy, negative energy/comments shouldn’t be directed towards David. He is an actor getting paid to do a job – one he does exceptionally well in my opinion. I say this, not to kiss some serious butt, but rather because his fantastic portrayal of Christopher is part of what infuriates me as a fan of Gilmore Girls (in a good way!). I can honestly say that Lorelai could live happily ever after with either Luke or Chris, which is a tribute to the acting ability of David, Scott and Lauren.
2) I think fans have to realize that just seeing Luke & Lorelai happy season after season doesn’t make for compelling television. Christopher plays a very integral role that keeps the show interesting. He puts the DRAMA into the Dramedy that is GILMORE GIRLS. Without Christopher constantly popping up in Stars Hollow at the worst possible time, the show wouldn’t be nearly as great, and devoted fans would have absolutely nothing to talk about!
