I am so glad I waited to watch the Gilmore Girls with one of my girls. When it was first on TV I thought it was about a mom who had her daughter at sixteen, and now spends every episode trying to be a cool mom to her now teen daughter. I was so wrong.
The Gilmore Girls stars Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel as the mother daughter pair. As it turns out, Lorelai is a cool mom to her daughter Rory, who is a refreshing teen for a TV show in this day and age. She is pretty, but in a classic way, wears clothes that cover everything, and is smart and dreams of going to Harvard. She even carries a book with her wherever she goes, even to her first dance!
The small town is full of characters, some we like, and some we wish would move to the city. Just like real life. And the conversations between the Lorelai and Rory and so funny, and sound so real. Of course, that is if you come from a family like mine, where sarcasm was a sport, and every family member played. Seriously, the Gilmore Girls are both good at taking and dishing out the sarcasm, and this makes for some very laugh-out-loud moments, that I imagine are even funnier, when like me, you really get it.
Oh, I forgot to mention the Gilmore Girls love coffee. My teen daughter and I love coffee too
So for now I absolutely love the Gilmore Girls. Oh, I know, it probably gets raunchier as Rory gets older, but for now, let me believe.
