"Intelligent, fast-paced, hilarious"

I first discovered Gilmore Girls a few years ago when it was playing on the Hallmark channel. At the time very few people had ever heard of the show, now it's showing on E4 in the afternoon and I've discovered so many people who love the show.

The characters really make the show, Lorelai and Rory Gilmore are the mother daughter team who are the main focus of the show but that doesn't meant that their relationship is the only one that matters. Both Rory and Lorelai's relationships with friends, family and men are explored throughout both series 1 and subsequent seasons.

The show is unbelievably fast-paced in terms of dialogue and gags, it never pauses to allow the audience to supply a gag reel which is the charm of the show. It's intelligent and references to popular culture come thick and fast. Although some of the references are the kind which only Americans will understand, the show doesn't lose anything for this and everything from literature to music is referenced.

The DVD boxset is a must for anyone who enjoys the show. It contains 6 DVDs each containing about 4 episodes. In terms of extras, there is a making of documentary 'Welcome to the Gilmore Girls' and the ability to see on-screen factoids which relate to what is being said in the episode which is an interesting function. There are also additional scenes which were cut from the episodes. There is also the ability to listen to the show and see subtitles in a large variety of European languages which is a nice option if you're trying to learn one of the languages. Although oddly the first series doesn't have German as an option which the later seasons do.

Manufacturer's product description

Set in the small town of Stars Hollow, Connecticut, GILMORE GIRLS is a charming television drama that tells the story of a thirty-something single mother, Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham), and her precocious teenage daughter, Rory (Alexis Bledel), as they navigate their way through the shifting tides of day-to-day life. Lorelai and Rory's relationship is one built out of friendship as much as it is based on maternal love, which allows for more drama and depth than most family shows. This release is a perfect way for fans to remember why they fell in love with the show in the first place, and allows latecomers to discover Lorelai and Rory for the very first time.
