The unfortunate reality is that GILMORE GIRLS is coming to an end. Be it this season or next, we’ll soon find ourselves without our favourite GIRLS from Stars Hollow. But don’t throw away your Luke’s Coffee Mug just yet. After watching last night’s Lane family baby shower, this TV Addict has an idea. Why not a Kim family spin-off starring Lane, Zack, the twins and of course Mrs. Kim?
Before you accuse me of spending a little to much time with Kirk, consider this. A spin-off revolving around The Kim Klan (Okay, so we have to work on the title) isn’t such a bad idea. Think back to last night’s episode, what scenes did you enjoy the most? It certainly wasn’t the tiresome Luke/April story-line or the Rory and Logan relationship melodrama. The highlight of last night was watching the entire town rally around Lane, her family and the band at her baby shower.
An entire town pitching in to help raise a baby, sure sounds familiar. Almost like that tale we’ve heard of Stars Hollow coming together to help a young mother named Lorelai raise a girl baby named Rory! A Lane Kim spin-off would give GILMORE fans an opportunity to see what it might have been like for Lorelai to raise Rory all those years ago. ‘GILMORE GIRLS: The Lane Kim Years’ would not only provide us with more of the characters we’ve come to know and love — namely Lane, Zack, Brian, Gil and Mrs. Kim — we’d also continue to get our Stars Hollow fix for years to come (Not to mention possible guest star visits by Lorelai, Luke and maybe even Rory). The show could even go full circle and start Lane off with a job at the DragonFly Inn! Lord knows Lane and Zack’s band isn’t going anywhere fast. The growing family could no doubt use a little cash to, you know, feed and cloth their kids.
Dawn Ostroff and the CW — you’re welcome. theTVaddict.com has single hand-idly started the development process for a sure fire hit spin-off and your first franchise (think CSI, next up ‘The Kirk Years’). You can thank me later for this brilliant idea, and really no need to pay me upfront — I’ll settle for a simple executive producer credit, and a guest stint as a Dragonfly Inn guest with a mysterious past (Okay, I kill Michel, but trust me, I’ll be doing the show a favour).
