The Pitch: What if the GILMORE GIRLS were sisters?
WHO’S WHO: Indie mainstay Parker Posey makes a welcome return to the small screen (after numerous sitcom guest stints) alongside her new sister Lauren Ambrose (SIX FEET UNDER) and GILMORE GIRLS alum Scott Cohen.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: When hardworking book editor Sarah (Parker Posey) learns she can’t have children, she decides to ask her estranged sister Coco (Lauren Ambrose) for one really big favour. A favour that carries a nine month commitment.
THE GOOD: In a word, okay three — Amy Sherman-Palladino. Her unique vision, trademark blink-and-you’ll-miss dialogue and unique sense of humor all make a long awaited return to television. GILMORE GIRLS fans will not be disappointed.
THE BAD: The laugh track. Memo to FOX, this isn’t ‘TIL DEATH. Amy Sherman-Palladino fans are smart enough to realize when something’s funny, there’s no need for awkward canned laughter to cue us. And while we’re not in love with the title (a little too long and wordy for our tastes) we can’t think of anything better. If we do, rest assured we’ll be sure to let you know.
Please note: This is not a review, just a first impression. The pilot that was sent to theTVaddict.com is by no means final and many things can and will change between now and when the show actually premieres in September
