30 Day TV Show Challenge - Day 10


Day 10 - A show you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving

Oh it has to be Gilmore Girls! I always thought it was a soppy program but I gave it a go one day and it really is one of the most feel-good shows that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside! :)

It is about single mother Lorelai Gilmore and her daughter Roryand their various troubles in life. Friends, boyfriends and Lorelai's parents to whom Lorelai has been estranged since her teenage pregnancy. It is so much more than just about the Gilmore's though. Each character, no matter how small, get's their chance to shine and what started as a program with 8 main castmembers ended as an ensemble of about 20 (a bit like BSG). I highly recommend it. They just started showing them from the beginning again on E4, try to catch it!

Emedding, once again is not available but go here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4E9VzsRymWc to view a selection from "Friday Night Dinners". Basically, in the Pilot, Lorelai asks her estranged parents for money to fund Rory's education (they consider Rory the daughter they never had) and they agree on the condition that they have dinner every Friday night. Cue hilariousness!!!
