It seems that everyone at Yale, Paris Geller included, knows about Rory’s boat-stealing incident via the Rebecca Thurston’s blog. Paris tells Rory to Google “Rory Gilmore sex boat” to find all the details.
Following Paris’ advice, I found out that no blog exists and that no blogger has taken the bait (until now). Try it yourself and see.
- If you’re a TV show and you mention a website or blog, build it out.
Even if it’s threadbare and shitty, it shows that you made the effort to tie your online to your on-air. Hip shows like The Simpsons and Harvey Birdman do it, so everyone should do it.
- If you don’t put up a site, especially one referenced in a Google search, you’re asking for someone (me) to (potentially) be the first result.
I’m no expert, but given the post title and the content, I should be number one for “Rory Gilmore sex boat” by tomorrow. If all the fans would have had an actual blog to linkto, the whole thing could have been much more popular and very viral
Rory Gilmore may have entered the blogosphere, but The WB hasn’t.
Do your homework, WB. That’s it.
Update: It’s over 15 years later and I’m watching this episode again with all 4 kids, Jenn, and my in-laws. Still funny even if I’m not the top spot anymore.
