I’m Finally Watching Gilmore Girls. I Kinda Hate It.

Before I say anything about “Gilmore Girls,” I need to preface this article with the fact that I’m just finishing up season 4 and could potentially change my mind about the show as I finish it. I also don’t entirely hate it. I’ve made it this far without complaining too much, but “Gilmore Girls” is still totally flawed and unrealistic.

We need to talk about it.

I finally began watching “Gilmore Girls” because I needed a series that was super long and destined to kill some time. Usually with shows that ran for as long as “Gilmore Girls” did, I prefer the kind of show that I can watch while doing something else. This show seemed like the perfect candidate.

And for the most part, it’s done the job I needed it to do. The show’s snappy and witty humor, quirky characters, and involved plot all gained my interest. It allowed me to relish in the early 2000’s. But I do have a major issue with the show: the existence of Lorelai and Rory.

These two are honestly the most entitled, absent-minded characters I’ve ever seen. Rory practically walks around with a halo and has a bit of a shallow grip on the world.

Lorelai is a child, and she totally places her adult responsibilities on Rory. Plus, every man that comes within three feet of her somehow falls in love with her, which is just a lot to unpack.

Rant over about these two, for now.

I’ll definitely still be finishing the show. And I’ll be back with a thorough update following my current frustration. It’s what the rest of Stars Hollow deserves.

  • Are you as disappointed with “Gilmore Girls” as I am?

    • Yeah – it’s pretty shallow.
    • No way!
