Why I Love The Gilmore Girls

The Gilmore Girls Are Great

I am a huge fan of The Gilmore Girls. I only recently discovered the series and am completely hooked. If you want to to see an example of a good mother daughter relationship then look no further than this TV show. The Gilmore Girls is a fantastic American show that is based around the life of a single mother and her daughter who live in the quaint little town of Stars Hollow.

The mother is called Lorelai; her daughter is also called Lorelai but is known as Rory. This mother and daughter team have a wonderful relationship and they are more like best friends. As Lorelai is a single mother, after getting pregnant at 16, she left home and basically fended for herself and her daughter.

We also get to meet Lorelai’s parents. There is a love-hate relationship between this mother, Emily, and her daughter which inevitably causes friction whenever they get together.

The Kooky Characters of The Gilmore Girls

Naturally in a small town like Stars Hollow, there are many colourful characters. These include Miss Patty, the dance instructor and Babette. They know everything that is going on in the town and like to gossip. Sookie is Lorelai’s best friend and partner at The Dragonfly Inn.

Taylor Doose is like the Town’s Mayor and a real stickler for rules and regulations and a real busy body. Things have to been done the right way or not at all. He is the cause of many conflicts with different members of the town.

The character of Kirk provides the comedy element to the show. Every time we see him, it seems that he has a new job, a weird hobby or some strange encounter with other members of the town.

A lovely man, Luke, the owner of the local diner is a great friend to Lorelai and they have a strange more than friends type of relationship which changes from season to season. He is always there to help her out in any situation and you are just willing them to get it together.

The writing is great with snappy one liners and hilarious references to other shows and celebrities. I love it when one show name checks another. There have also been a few cameo appearances by stars during the different seasons.

The Hunks on The Gilmore Girls

Some eye candy for the ladies comes in the form of the gorgeous Milo Ventimiglia and Jared Padalecki, who both played Rory’s love interest at one time or another and also Luke Danes, the owner of the diner and Lorelai's good friend.

If you get the chance to you should try to watch The Gilmore Girls online or better still, buy the Gilmore Girls DVD set. It’s good wholesome family entertainment. The show has now been cancelled but it lasted for 7 wonderful seasons and will live on forever in reruns around the world as well as the DVD collection.

    Linda - You are right, The Gilmore Girls has been canceled but here in England it can take a while to get some programmes.  One of the smaller digital channels purchased it and has been broadcasting the show every weekday, twice a day.  Great way to get my Gilmore fix.

    Thanks for your feedback. I am trying to improve my writing style so your comment is greatly appreciated.

    I thought the show had been cancelled. Something about the show must have resonated with you to write about it on hubpages. Good description of the other characters with the mother and daughter on the Gilmore Girls.
