"The Gilmore Girls"


Awwww the Gilmore Girls is LEGENDARY!!!!!
Its the best programme in the world!!
The series is about a mother and daughter who are VERY close, Lorelai lived with her rich parents who were very stuck up, while she liked to have fun, when she was 16 she rebelled and ended up pregnant, the father split and Lorelai ran away to a little town Stars Hollow 30 miles from Harvard where her parents live.
Despite the odds she's done well for herself, she manages an Inn, (the Independance Inn), and has a lovely house with an amazingly brought up daughter Rory (Lorelai but she's called Rory).

The series begins when Rory who is very clever and into her education, wants to go to Chiltenen, a private school, and her mother fights to get her in, but when they want the tuition fees up front, she is forced to go to her parents for her, who she does not get along with and only sees at christmas and other holidays.

Her parents lend her the money on the condition that on Friday nights, her and Rory visit them for dinner. This is agreed and so the series is begun.

Along with Lorelai and Rory there is diner owner Luke who is to play a big part in the show in future series, but in this he is very much in the background.

Rory and Lorelai are VERY close, they're best friends as well as mother and daughter and they do everything together, Rory is very different to her mother in terms of her behaviour and attitude, she loves reading, and works very hard in her shcool work-she wants to be a journalist and is aiming to go to Harvard University.

Her mother is very down to earth and makes fun of everything. Even though they are different they get on greatly and have great fun in everything they do, they rarely argue and Lorelai will always take Rorys side in anything she does.

When Rory gets her first boyfriend Dean, Lorelai is apprehensive but they soon become a little three-some of friendship, having a movie night of an old film and a pizza.

The first series isn't the best the rest, but its a great start to an amazing show!!!! Its funny, will have you giggling away at the things the girls get upto, and will have you in tears at times.

Its a must for any girl! My husband hates it :-p but I love it! Its on E4 every weekday morning as I'm obsessed with it!! I'm just hoping a new 8th series is made otherwise I'll be so so sad!!!!!!!!!

Summary: An amazing show for everyone!!

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.
