Dear Luke & Lorelai Fans,
As much as you may detest the idea of Lorelai and Christopher, I dare you to argue against the undeniable fact that last night’s date (romantic drive-in movie under the stars) was the most romantic idea ever. (Note to Chris, kudos on taking notes from an episode of FELICITY).
To be fair though, aside from the nice drive-in moment and Emily’s hilarious run in with the ‘law’, last night’s episode of GILMORE GIRLS was incredibly uneven in terms of what I liked and didn’t like. Starting off with what I didn’t like (always more fun): Luke and April — painful to watch. Luke may be from a small town, but honestly, how has he never been to Target? In Canada we don’t even have Target, and I pop into one everytime I visit the US, great sales on TV series’ on DVD, but I digress… More importantly, it’s very painful to watch Luke interact with April. Why is Luke always painted as a complete moron? He runs a successful restaurant, he should know how to better interact with kids.
Rory’s story for the episode started off annoying, can she stop phoning Logan, Rory’s always been written as a smart and sophisticated young woman — one who’s central concerns were school and her life — not just a boy. Yet as the episode wore on, it was nice to finally see her have a bit of fun in the episodes final minutes.
No GILMORE wrap-up would be complete without a Paris mention. With only a few minutes of screen time each week, Liza Weil (Paris) knocks it out of the park, everytime. In future episodes, this TV addict’s vote is for more Paris and less Michel and Sookie.
