  1. I won’t make fun of you, but I just can’t get behind the Gilmore Girls thing. I try to avoid it, because it’s one of those shows that pulls me in while I’m going “Why, why am I watching this?” And then I sit for hours.

  2. A friend of mine teaching pop culture got really interesting papers on GG from some men in her class. It apparently offers alternative masculinities to most mainstream fare.
    and Keane is great.
    what an excellent Sunday list.

  3. I also have a weak spot for The Gilmore Girls. Like Nadine, I find myself getting absorbed into the story and then asking myself why. But now it’s probably the one TV show that I make any effort to watch.

  4. I wish my life had the consistent banter of Gilmore Girls. I also wish I could ingest nothing but fatty foods, caffeine, alcohol, never excercise and still look like a babe. Not that looks are all that matter.

  5. I will defend the Girlmore Girls (at least, its track record so far) to my dying breath because it is a show that in a mostly nonstereotypical way treats women’s lives as nontrivial and because it features an admirably wide (okay, not *that* wide) variety of female characters whose lives have depth.
    True, almost everyone is improbably thin, but upon which TV show is this not the case? And I think I have a crush on the zaftig Sookie, played by Melissa McCarthy, whose weight, thankfully, has not been an issue on the show and who, unlike the skinny Rory and Lorelei, has managed to establish a solid relationship with a man who loves her.
    Plus, word on the street is that a lot of writers from Buffy the Vampire Slayer ended up working for this show, so…
    What can I say? I’m a sucker for stichomythia.

  6. I adore the show. Watch it in re-runs every day. There are actually quite a few women on the show who don’t fit into the superskinny Hollywood stereotype – Miss Patty, Babette, and yes, Sookie. Of course, I still wish I could eat crap and look like Lorelei.

  7. I believe just Jane Espenson joined GG after Buffy. I’ve never watched the show, although an elder male in my family watches it religiously.
