    This show taught me a lot about life and how to act and to just have fun and be everyone’s best friend. I love this show so unbelievably much and I’ve loved it since I was 11 possibly even before then. It was a big part of my life and always will be. Also, Gilmore Girls gave me an escape even if it was just for a while or for an all night marathon. It helped me escape when times were tough and I just had to get outta reality for a bit. Lorelai and Rory are important to me because I can relate to them because of all my family issues. I’m like Lorelai because my mother is pretty controlling and kinda distant and reminds me of Emily Gilmore. I remember Lorelai once saying that everything when she was growing up was very hush hush and don’t talk about it my household is that way. Then I’m like Rory because I’m a total book-worm and do great in school. I love this show so much haha sometimes I wish I could just move to Stars Hollow. By the way I wrote another comment it was on your “Patty Malcom on facebook” post please read it because I would love to hear your opinion.

      I think you pay Gilmore Girls the highest honor by identifying with its world so closely – this is essentially what good art is supposed to do. It is why we still turn to Shakespeare and Jane Austen and all the rest.

    I found your page through Facebook. This is just the page I’ve been looking for at which to fully appreciate and share observations from a wonderful show!

    My mom is very much Emily Gilmore – always on me to “act like an adult” and do what she wanted me to do. So I identified with Lorelai in that respect. In college when Mom was getting on me to date more and tell her everything I started responding with wise cracks and jokes like Lorelai did. That made me feel much better – humor helped deflect her negative words – and annoyed my mom to no end!! (This has not changed in 10 years +) …. I love the speed of the dialogue; that’s how I talk!! I’m always multi-tasking so I talk fast to keep moving.
    The humor and community atmosphere of Stars Hollow is a sort of fantasy land which I love to visit in reruns and DVDs. Stars Hollow is like “Cheers” in a way – everyone knows everyone, gossip flows freely. The cast of quirky characters is always up to something new, silly, strange — and always funny. References to pop culture (which indicates the years in which the show was filmed) and classic TV alike I found hilarious. That – among previously indicated factors- for me make Gilmore Girls truly unique.

      Thanks for sharing, Maria. I can’t tell you how many women have told me the exact same thing over the years (about the Lorelai/Emily thing). It always makes me think of that scene where Lorelai tells Emily that a long time ago she stopped being hurt by what Emily said and started being amused by it. (I think this is the episode where Lorelai throws her back out and Emily stays with her while Rory’s on a date…with Dean, I think.) And I’m right there with you about Stars Hollow. My wife and I are still looking for that tiny, kooky town…and by the sound of it, we’re not alone 😉
