I loved Gilmore Girls the first moment I saw it on TV. I was in 4th year high school and I first saw it on one of our local channels. You can bet it was at least a year delayed. We had no cable yet, no internet, everything wasn’t so accessible as it is now. Gilmore Girls is officially my first favorite TV show. I didn’t get to see it beyond the first few episodes of the second season. But I did get to see the first season over and over and over again. The channel that showed it was also in love with the show as I was, apparently.
I’m watching it again now. The plan is to watch all of seven seasons. I really love the show. I watched the whole first season twice. It still has its charm. You’d think that with the number of series you can watch these days, that Gilmore Girls would just seem phased out. It’s a quaint, lovely, heart-warming show that can be enjoyed at any time of your life. Or my life, that is. Of course, the fact that it’s quite a book fest for a book whore like me, is a plus. Rory, being an avid reader, is always reading, and each episode mentions a book or two that’s very nice for those who have read them, hearing something familiar and something any book-lover can relate to.
As I was looking for some pictures over the net for this blog post, I came across a Rory Gilmore Book Club or a Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge. Someone actually listened, and listened well, to get each title that was ever mentioned or seen on the show. It is kind of cool. Me, I’m into lists, but I’m over looking for book lists already. I’ve gone through plenty of book lists a while back and have my own to get through still. For those who are interested, though, go to Gilmore Girls Reading Challenge for the complete list, or get the spreadsheet here: Rory Gilmore Book Project.
