The Best Episode for Each Gilmore Girls Character

  It's hard to believe Gilmore Girls week is drawing to a close. It's been such a fun week, so full of memories and feelings and coffee and boot-cut jeans. To leave things off on a high note, let's consider each character at his or her peak. Here are the best episodes for our major Stars Hollowans.   The Best Lorelai Episode Is "I Can't Get Started" (Season 2, Episode 22) It's Sookie and Jackson's wedding, and everyone's in a tizzy, particularly Lorelai: She sleeps with Christopher who has arrived in Stars Hollow just overflowing with charm and shared history and at long last perfect timing. She even tells her mother that she thinks she and Christopher are going to get back together for-real-for-real, and in that moment both Lorelai and Emily look so thrilled that you know it can't last. Here comes the phone call from Chris's almost-ex, Sherry: She's pregnant, and Christopher doesn't want to abandon another pregnant girlfriend. He tells Lorelai, and we see her heart just shatter. As Christopher walks away, she calls after him. "Congratulations," she says, choking back tears a little bit. It's part of the Lauren Graham highlight reel for sure, and it might be my favorite moment in the whole series. There's just so much going on.   Read More... http://www.vulture.com/2014/09/best-gilmore-girls-episodes-by-character.html

Why Gilmore Girls Will Always Have the Best Theme Song

  It's true: No other television show has a better theme song than Gilmore Girls . Even out of context, Carole King and her daughter Louise Goffin's "Where You Lead" brings you back to Stars Hollow it's that integral to the show. And it's not Gilmore Girls ' only musical coup: The show's soundtrack featured the likes of Yo La Tengo, the Shins, Big Star, and Bjrk, with Sam Phillips's signature "la-la-la" refrains serving as transitions between scenes. (How would Stars Hollow retain its whimsy without it?) But leading off with "Where You Lead" set a tone for the show that wasn't just a candy coating. It seeped way down into the seams. Here's why.   Read More... http://www.vulture.com/2014/09/why-gilmore-girls-has-the-best-theme-song.html

Gilmore Girls Coming to Netflix

The Gilmore Girls  are coming straight from Stars Hollow to a Netflix equipped device near you on October 1. Known for snappy dialogue, excellent acting, and an extremely controversial ending that I won’t get into here, the show started in October of 2000 and ended in May of 2007 after seven seasons of constant drama on the WB and then the CW. The series was a tentpole for the WB for a number of years before cancellation during the seventh season. The fact that Gilmore Girls will be appearing at long last on Netflix is a boon to fans, and also a major portent of things to (hopefully) come soon.

Gilmore Girls Alumni: Where Are They Now?

  TNT's Mob City premiered this week, with a sumptuous noir aesthetic but not much in the way of rich characters. For some, though, the most notable part of the series is that it co-stars Milo Ventimiglia — a.k.a. Jess from Gilmore Girls . What better occasion, then, to revisit the residents of Stars Hollow? Where are these actors now? And more important, what shows should they be on?   Lauren Graham: One thing you notice upon repeat (and repeat and repeat) viewings of Gilmore Girls is that Lorelai is almost psychotically selfish and self-absorbed. But you like her anyway, and that is because Lauren Graham is great. Where is she now? She's Lorelai 2.0 on Parenthood , where she plays the single mom Sarah Braverman.  Read More... http://www.vulture.com/2013/12/gilmore-girls-alumni-where-are-they-now.html

SideReel Gives Thanks for Thanksgiving Episodes

There’s an embarrassment of riches at Thanksgiving — on your television as well as on your plate! Let's get real: Thanksgiving meals are AMAZING, but there comes a point where you just can't eat anymore without severe pain, and you lose the ability to do much of anything but lay on the couch, rubbing your stomach, and praying for the ability to house your internal organs somewhere on the outside of your body. But there's another way! "How?!" — You. It's easy! Keep your mind occupied with some of the greatest Thanksgiving-themed television episodes ever to air! Laugh (or cry) out some of that indigestion. After all, why learn a lesson about overeating when you don't have to?   Seinfeld  S6E8: The Mom & Pop Store To paraphrase the dearly missed Stefon, this episode has it ALL — which, for a show about nothing, is somewhat amusing. George buys a car that may or may not have belonged to Jon Voight, Kramer gets some elderly shopkeepers in trouble, Elaine's romantic life is impeded by Mr. Pitt's whims, and Jerry agonizes over whether he was invited to a Thanksgiving party hosted by one Tim Whatley, DDS (played by Breaking Bad 's Bryan Cranston). Perhaps no other show has so fully captured the feeling of obligation that comes with what is ostensibly one of our most beloved holidays.   King of the Hill  S4E7: The Hank's Giving Episode I'm an unabashed, unapologetic King of the Hill fanatic, but I suspect that even if I weren't, I'd still be charmed by the mix of cynicism and earnestness in this episode. Traveling for this most American of holidays is generally a nightmare, but getting delayed due to weather (which is perfect at your destination) is heartbreaking. Getting your perfectly-smoked turkey blown up on the tarmac because it's a suspected bomb is... what's beyond heartbreaking? Heartdisolving? No, the Hills never make it to Montana, but they do spend a night at an airport foodcourt with their closest friends... and the Souphanousinphones.   WKRP in Cincinnati  S1E7: Turkeys Away "As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly." This is the episode that saved this quirky 70s sitcom from cancellation, and quite frankly, set the standard by which all sitcoms' Thanksgiving episodes should be judged. Premise: WKRP's hapless management devises a fantastic publicity stunt: a free turkey giveaway! Except, uh, these turkeys are alive, and the delivery method is a real... high wire act. Dropping birds out of an airplane? What could go wrong?     Grey's Anatomy  S2E9: Thanks for the Memories Season 2 of Grey's Anatomy gave its characters some much-needed breathing room after the frenetic rocket launch that was its debut. That being said, it wasn't until 9 episodes in and this Thanksgiving-centered episode that we truly saw the characters solidifying into the multi-dimensional people we came to love, hate, and mourn. Notably, Izzy's obsessive streak is fully revealed for the first time, and we're given a glimpse into George's very un-Georgelike family of hunting nuts.     Gilmore Girls  S3E9: A Deep-Fried Korean Thanksgiving Expectations of attendance at four different Thanksgiving celebrations actually sounds like the perfect thing for those speed-talking, junk food-loving titular girls, and yet, as it happens, not so much ! After some endearing machinations, the most popular girls in Stars Hollow please everyone — and one even gets a kiss! And that little girl who got kissed is now engaged to the guy who plays Pete Campbell.       ER  S6E8: Great Expectations There was a time, children, that ER was a very big deal, and during that long-ago era, Juliana Margulies' Nurse Carol Hathaway (and her romance with George Clooney's Dr. Doug Ross) was the heart of the show (which is ironic, because she was supposed to have committed suicide in the pilot). And it is in this very special Thanksgiving episode that she gives birth to the Hathaway-Ross twins, Tess and Kate — and also brings into the show Maura Tierney's Abby Lockhart, who would eventually fill the gap created by Margulies' exit from the show. Oh, children, it was truly an age of wonder.   Friends  S1E9: The One Where Underdog Gets Away Despite my documented dislike of Friends , I have to give it the recognition it deserves: it really did produce excellent Thanksgiving episodes. This is the one that started it all, with the twin amusements of Joey as the face of an anti-STD campaign, and Chandler's plan to boycott the holiday (for reasons that would continue to be explored years into the show's run). But the episode's centerpiece, namely the escape of the Underdog balloon from the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, that sets the plot — and the show's winning streak — into motion.     A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving  Special No, it's not an "episode" per se, but not including it on this list would be an act of television critic sacrilege for which I'm unprepared. Since its premiere in 1973, this heartwarming Peanuts special has aired every single year. It features Snoopy in a Pilgrim costume and opens with Charlie Brown still unable to kick that elusive football down the field. Right, like I really need to tell you what happens here.         Leah E. Friedman  is the editor of SideReel.com.

'Bunheads' premiere is very reminiscent of 'Gilmore Girls,' and that's a good thing

The fact that ABC Family's newest series, "Bunheads," comes from "Gilmore Girls" creator Amy Sherman-Palladino is so apparent during the show's premiere episode that the music and the snappy dialogue alone are enough to transport you back to Star's Hollow -- and that's even before Kelly Bishop (the erstwhile Emily Gilmore) shows up as the disapproving mother figure, Fanny."Bunheads" is funny and charming while being heartfelt at the same time, i.e. all the best parts of "Gilmore Girls" with a little dance class thrown in. Sutton Foster is perfectly cast as the newest fast-talking heroine, Michelle, a Las Vegas dancer who elopes with her longtime admirer and moves to his sleepy California town. She's kind of a slightly more sarcastic Lorelai. And there aren't enough good things to say about Bishop or the "GG" rhythm she slips back into so easily. "You should've been a radio announcer, or an auctioneer," she tells her new daughter-in-law.The... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/06/bunheads-premiere-is-very-reminiscent-of-gilmore-girls-and-thats-a-good-thing.html
