I don’t want to start a trend here a la Lost, but I couldn’t let the Season 7 premiere of Gilmore Girls pass without posting something.
This season is unique for two reasons: The CW and the departure of the Palladinos (creators/executive producers).
The Good: fast-paced dialogue, crazy Stars Hollow happenings, great Rory/Logan storyline
The Bad: Lorelai falling into Christopher’s bed and Luke realizing too late that he needed to fight for Lorelai
The Ugly: Lorelai telling Luke the truth about Chris
Honestly for a season premiere and a changing of the guard things could have gone a whole lot worse. That said, I have a feeling that things will have to get worse (i.e. – pursuing some of Amy Sherman-Palladino’s plotpoints from last season to their logical conclusions) before they get better.
Plus I’d like more Emily & Richard and Lane in the future.
Still, good job everyone. Here’s hoping Season 7 just keeps getting better.
