"Good series, with great characters"

The first series of this funny and at times very heart-warming programme is a joy to watch. The story of Lorelai Gilmore, a struggling single mother, and her teenage daughter, Rory, is very well balanced. Lorelai dreams of running her own inn and Rory would love to go to Harvard.

Kelly Bishop and Edward Herrmann are perfect as Lorelai's conservative and distant parents, who have had little contact with Lorelai since she ran away when Rory was little more than a baby.

The supporting cast in this drama are quirky and provide much comic relief. Living in a small town myself, I can identify with elements of the characters, such as Taylor (the head of the town's council), and Luke (the owner of the diner).

This dvd release contains every episode in Season One, and is generally very good value for the amount of entertainment it provides. The soundtrack is also worth a mention. I would recommend it to anyone!

    My daughter likes this, but I can't get over Rory's name and the size of her forehead! Welcome to Ciao. Paul

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.
