Friday Night Dinner 13
The 13th in a weekly look at the progress of The Gilmore Girls Companion as we round the bend on this 2+ year adventure.
First, on the (very) off chance that anybody missed it, you’ll want to check out the photos (here and here) and interview from Entertainment Weekly’s reunion feature on Gilmore. (The ol’ ticker nearly stopped when I saw the words “Gilmore Girls” and “reunion” together until I realized this was just an article concept rather than an actual event.) Cheers to Gilmore News for spreading the word on this one.
The book (you remember the book) is just about done; all that remains is for art director Pamela Norman to work her beautification magic on it, and for yours truly to give it one more read through.
Which actually brings me to what’s been going on here at Chez Berman-Norman (or Chez Norman-Berman) this last week. Pamela’s parents came to visit from Florida, and had never seen Gilmore Girls! (Cue dramatic music!) Naturally we had to remedy that. We started them off with “They Shoot Gilmores, Don’t They” (the dance marathon one), and from there they were hooked. Or extremely polite; either way, they blew through the first three discs of Season 1 in a couple of days.
That actually got me to thinking: What do you think is the best episode to show somebody who’s never seen the series before? Thoughts?
