We’re Giving Away GILMORE GIRLS Swag (Your opportunity to reconnect with your inner Gilmore!)

In the three short years since we last left Stars Hollow, an awful lot has changed. First, as part of set pieces from TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES, the quant fictional Connecticut town was overrun by killer robots sent from the future. Next, went the town’s signature Gazebo, which was demolished to make room for a ghastly fountain in the short-lived ABC series EASTWICK. And why, when Warner Bros put the word out that in exchange for mentioning — that GILMORE GIRLS: THE COMPLETE SERIES is now available for download on iTunes with seasons 3-7 available for the first time ever on any format in HD theTVaddict.com would be offered the opportunity to give away two pieces of Stars Hollow history, we jumped at the chance!

Up for grabs: A “Luke’s Diner” and “Dragonfly Inn” coffee mugs. To enter to win, simply post a comment with what you miss most about GILMORE GIRLS in the comments below. One lucky entrant will be notified via email on April 19, 2010, so please be sure to enter with a valid email address. Not a winner? These GILMORE GIRLS inspired coffee mugs are always available at the WB shop.

  • Megan

    Friday Night Dinners!!!

  • Liz M

    I miss that the references to events/places/people always made sense even if it took you a while (and multiple viewings) to realize it.

  • I miss all the references and jokes about coffee, which is to say I miss Lorelai and everything about her.

    Coffee, coffee, coffee. / So three coffees?
    and Do you like coffee? / Only with my oxygen.

  • annultsch

    I miss the familiarity of it all. It was expected that every week you could lose yourself in your home inside your home, with your adopted family (that didn't actually know you, but you felt like they did).It was (and still is thanks to DVDs) the family and life you wish you were a part of because it made you feel good, it made you laugh cry and sometimes even made you angry. I miss the witty banter that i want to be part of my everyday life until i die.

  • malloriemecham

    Like just about everyone else who has commented, there's not enough space for all the things that I miss about the Gilmores or Stars Hollow, so I guess I'll have to make it short and sweet. I miss the excellent one liners like “Oy with the poodles already!” and “Monkey monkey underpants!” How, may I ask, do you get better then that?

  • Remy

    I miss kirk and luke's rage the most!

  • becky628

    I miss the realism of the relationship between lorelei and rory. their dialogue and closeness was refreshing for television.

  • Rachel C.

    I miss how SMART and funny this show was. It wasn't about a bunch of sex and toilet humor. Don't see that very much. And I miss the soundtrack. Doesn't everyone wish their town had a troubador?

  • IM_Kelly

    I miss the show so much that I watch it every day on ABCFamily channel. I loved it when Lorelai said “FRAK!” I miss the Friday night dinners, fast paced dialog and Paris.

  • Ace

    Miss pretty much everything about Gilmore Girls. But like most of the others here, I would have to say the dialogue. You really believed that Lauren Graham was downing all that coffee b/c otherwise I don't know how she got all of those words out so quickly.

  • TVaholic83

    I miss the ENTIRE show. I miss the funny dialogue. I miss that I had to look up some of their references. Not many shows can make you do that. I miss Rory and Logan. I miss Lorelai and Luke. I miss Michele and Sookie. I miss it all. I actually think I'm going to watch the box sets this weekend now.

  • kyool

    I miss all the witty pop culture banter.

  • Sara

    So I watched GG for years but my mom was never able to because she lived where she couldn't get the WB.

    I was home last August and saw that she could watch the reruns on ABC Family Channel and for the next few months I kept getting calls from her saying “Oh my God why did I never watch this show!” or “Emily Gilmore is totally my mother (my grandmother) except she isn't rich, just mean!”

    So it became a thing I asked about all the time. I would ask “so what happened today on GG” and she would tell me and we would laugh and laugh. Then she got really close to the end and it was a weekend and I asked what was happening on the show and she told me. I said wow you are almost a the end, like really close to the end. She got all upset and made me look on the DVDs to find out how many episodes she had left. When I told her she only had 2 episodes left it was like I stabbed here with a knife. She was so sad and rearranged her entire week so she wouldn't miss it.

    Then I got a call at work immediately after she watched the last episode and she was crying and sniffing. It was so cute.

    So I guess the thing I will miss most about GG is my mom seeing the episodes for the first time and then talking about them after. I don't think anything on TV right now is written as well or as witty as GG and that makes me sad. I love that I own the whole DVD series and can pick episodes that I know are great and watch them over and over.

  • Heather

    I miss looking forward to it every week. That's what I miss most.

  • ToddWinNC

    Too many things to mention just one.

    I miss most of all the smart, witty, fast-paced dialogue.

    But, I also miss the characters, the relationships, the constant festivity of Stars Hollow, the quirkiness of its town members, the constantly amazing performance of Lauren Graham, and the perfect blend of drama & comedy.

    It's not serious enough to be a drama. It's not goofy enough, corny enough, or staged enough to be a sitcom. It's not sappy or melodramatic enough to be a soap opera. It's its own entity.

    I've always expressed my disappointment in season 7 and, to a certain extent, the 2nd half of s6. But, I recently re-watched the last two seasons. S7 is still the worst season, and I still think the final scene of s6 was a horrendous mistake, but episode for episode, it's not as bad as I remember, not even the series finale. I finally relented and now count GG as one of my all-time 9 favorite TV shows. And, if I had to narrow it down more, it could possibly be in the top 5.

  • Oh I miss Emily and her ability to make sure there's a Friday night dinner for Lorelei to suffer through….

  • Jamie

    I miss everything about Gilmore Girls! But I guess the thing I miss the most is having a show that my mom and I loved watching together. She's not as into TV as I am, so it's not often I can convince her to watch something with no complaints.

  • brent

    I miss Paw Paw

  • amaiyume

    I miss the lalalala song of the town troubadour and the quirky episodes with unusual town events (like the picnic basket auction or the living-art contest). But most of all, as a fellow coffeeholic, i miss the begging and cravings of Lorelai when entering Luke's 🙂

  • Emily N.

    I miss everything about the show. Especially the witty banter and hilarious one liners.

    “I hear he controls the weather and wrote the screenplay to Glitter!”

  • New42

    I miss the zaniness of Stars Hollow events. I miss the quick witted banter and the charm that the show had. I miss relating my life to what was happening to Rory at the same time on the show and I definately miss the Jess years. I pretty much miss everything about it and love being able to get back from class (I'm in college) and watch repeats on ABC Family.

  • Jennifer

    I miss the Lorelai-Luke tension. I miss Rory's bad-boy phase with Jess. I miss Paris & Rory on spring break. I miss every single thing about Lane. I actually kinda really miss Emily Gilmore & her hoity-toity attitude. I don't miss the time when Lorelai & Rory weren't speaking to each other, but I do miss how amazing it felt to see them reunite.

  • Annie

    I miss the reliability of Lorelei and Rory

  • Kristen

    I miss the feeling of belonging that I got while visiting Stars Hollow. Even when I watch the reruns on ABC Family and SoapNet now, I still say to myself, “that's where the people like me live!”

  • I miss all the random pop culture references, fast talking and of course every single character to come out of Stars Hollow!

  • ashleybeans

    I miss everything about Gilmore Girls honestly. But most, I probably miss the great banter & awesome relationship between Lorelai and Rory being on my TV every Tuesday night 🙁

  • TankGrrrrl

    I miss the snappy dialogue and constant barrage of random and obscure pop culture references!

  • lilhoek

    Oh my. Honestly, I miss the butterflies in my stomach that used to happen before a new episode! The jeep, the inn, the new inn, Lane! Oh, how I loved Lane and Mrs. Kim! And cute, sweet Dave… whatever happened to that kid 🙂

  • Chelsea

    I miss the wit. And the pop culture. I feel like my mind has become sluggish since GG. No one I’ve met in real life has 1/5th the arsenal of intelligence and witticisms in their repertoire that the Gilmore Gals did.

    I also miss Jess, because really – he’s Jess.

  • God, what do I miss the most? So much to choose from. I miss all those wonderfully wacky town events that seemed to take place each week end. I mean, who doesn’t dream of living in a place like Stars Hollow?

  • Rachel

    I think it goes without saying that I miss everything. But if I HAD to pick one, I'd say the relationship (especially the banter!) between Rory and Lorelai.

  • What I miss most is watching Luke and Lorelai falling in love. I feel the ending wasn't fully finished and there was still more of the story to be told. I really missed Amy Sherman-Palladino's writing in the last season too. I'm aware that from the very beginning she knew the last two lines that were to be said on the show. She's never told them to anyone and since she didn't write the finale the fans never got to hear them either. Truth be told i miss the way ASP wrote the show. Now I would say I miss watching Lauren Graham on television since she's my favourite actress but she's recently been cast on Parenthood and I couldn't be happier. I've watched Gilmore Girls since it aired and I was only 6. 10 years later and i'm still watching the DVDs everyday. It's the reason why my mother and I are so class and for that i'm thankful. I miss the wittiness of Lorelai and the Gilmore Girls in general and all the hilarious pop culture references. I've learned so much from the show and still cannot believe it's been done for 3 years. But also I miss Stars Hollow and all the funny characters that came with it. Gilmore Girls was more than just a show, it was a life style. I love it with all my heart and it will forever be my favourite show. There's so much more I miss about it, but there's not enough room to write it all. I'd need to write a story book to do so. There is nothing on TV now that is as good as Gilmore Girls and nothing will ever compare. The best moment of my life was when I got to see the sets. Now if I ever met Lauren that would be a high second, but I just miss Gilmore Girls SO much. And one of my favourite artists 'Amy Kuney' was the folk singer in an episode in S6? I really need to stop rambling, but pretty much my life relates so much to GG and I just feel like i'm apart of it rather than watching it. <3

  • Leon

    I miss the fun

  • Amy

    I miss the music and the dialog!

  • Stephanie

    Wow – so hard to narrow it down! I think I miss Friday night dinners the most… the banter and the relationships between Lorelai/Emily and Rory/Richard. Funny and heartwarming.

  • WOW. I had no idea such mugs existed. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win.
    What do I miss about Gilmore? Hmm, I'd have to say EVERYTHING. That was one awesome show!!

  • Nav

    Gilmore Girls is my all-time favourite show and I enjoy it now through reruns and show DVDs. There is so much to miss about the show. At the core, it was about relationships – mother-daughter relationships of all three Gilmore Girls. This was appointment-TV with my own mom and sister and the three of us enjoyed watching the GG go through their realistic relationship dramas with each other. It gave us all something to think about, but always left us feeling warm-and-fuzzy. The banter between characters was unlike anything else on TV and the pop culture references were a great part of the dialogue; I always found myself looking them up. I loved the fact that Rory was so different, in a positive way, from other teens on TV and I could relate to her bookwormy-academicness + obsession with TV and movies! It was refreshing to see; finally someone who enjoys culture, books and actually cares about her education by actively showing that she studies, I never really saw that on TV. The crew of characters, the quirky, small-town feel… I could escape each week and feel like I was a part of that world. Some say the Gilmore Girl universe was unrealistic but that’s not the point… maybe you can’t find a real town with such a closely-knit community, but the show still offered a dose of realism with its messages about love, community, family and friendship.

  • Kate

    Paris! She was the funniest part of Gilmore Girls.

  • Amabel

    what i miss most about gilmore girls is the amazing relationship lorelai had with rory. The way they interacted and could share anything with each other. they truly understood each other. i also miss singing along…” where you lead i will follow anywhere that you tell me to”… i just miss those gilmore girls 🙂

  • Heather and London

    I would have to say what we (my 13yr daughter and I) miss the most is the kind of bond we felt with Rory and Loralai. We grew with them. With a bond for each other like they had for one another. We still watch Gilmore Girls daily. As it is a part of how we communicate.

  • Jessica Thelander

    I miss the quaint environment of Stars Hallow the most. Gilmore Girls was a show that was such a nice escape from the fame-hungry reality shows and primetime shows where the lead characters are constantly shirtless. This was about an innocent, quirky town that just stood out from every other TV show; it was refreshing.

  • Dawn Lin

    I miss all that witty dialogue btw lorelai & gilmore! I love how luke loves lorelai in his own way despite how she drives him nuts! N most of all, i miss growing up with gilmore girls!

  • I miss all the awesome pop-culture references that came up during the quick, witty dialog.

  • Oops duplicate

  • Alyssa

    The thing I miss most is the charecters. They were like a second family to me! The amazing idea of a small town with the best people and the biggest hearts. Amy is a genius. She created a show where people can get lost in the crazy refrences and amazing places. I miss the most incredible show in the world!

  • Eldritch

    Of course, the banter, the pop references, the humor. But all that worked so well because it was based on the supportive bond Lorelei and Rory. That's an unusual approach for a TV. It's so much easier to milk the conflict between the generations. That gave the show a fresh perspective. One that I miss.
