What’s wrong with Season 7

Besides the fact that every character is being untrue to what we have known them to be for 6 years. (There wasn’t a new episode tonight, so a rant will have to suffice). The problem with this seasons “Gilmore Girls” is that suddenly the girls are actually doing things. The premise of the show has always been simple: the girls talk about things, really really fast after they happen. This is the show that I have grown to love. The “Gilmore Girls” do not: witness car crashes, play racquetball, or go to Paris. We haven’t seen most of the significant moments on this show, we didn’t see Rory & Jess’ car crash, we didn’t even see when Luke proposed, we didn’t even have that flashback moment where we see Lorelai hold Rory as a baby for the first time. Suddenly it seems like every episode is on location. Just let my girls sit & drink coffee & talk really, really fast. It’s what they do best.

I've watched every episode of Gilmore Girls several times. I moved to a small town that reminded me of Stars Hollow. I've subconsciously had my haircut to look like Lorelai. Gilmore Girls is my life, I just have to find Luke. (Well, I didn't have a kid when I was 16, but other than that...)

    So true. There is far too much action, and not enough coffee talk. Things that disturb me: Rory talking dirty via text, and the lack of town response after L and L broke up. Didn’t they wear ribbons last time?

    Good point! I hadn’t thought about it quite that way, but you’re right…makes me wonder if the new writers have even SEEN the previous episodes, or do they think they’re working on a new pilot???

    I long for the days of Seasons 1-4…I don’t like the direction that this show is going either. Rory’s new weird friends (although I am excited about Marty coming back!), Christopher flinging his money around, the idiotic backstories of the quirky townspeople…and what happened to Lane? Are we not going to see her again until she gives birth? Where’s Mrs. Kim’s reaction to the pregnancy news?!

    Bah, my computer is bad.
    I was saying that at the beginning GG was about real life. Talking, going to school, going to work, and returning home or dining at Luke to talk about all these funny and nice things Lorelai & Rory have lived in this one day separated. But after, her relationship, the atmosphere of their quiet and sweet home, all this stuff which makes the show so light and lovely just disappeared, with all the love problems, the relationships problems, the ambition problems,… and this is so sad.

    Very true. Some moments I would have ENJOYED seeing…but, somehow, it played better without them. We got the small, sweet moments. They did a nice “save” at the end of Season 7…but most of the season was a complete disaster. Honestly, from season 5 on, things seemed…off. I will be forever grateful for Season 6 Jess…but the small lovelinesses we really needed to see with the fruition of Luke and Lorelai’s long awaited relationship…could have been so much sweeter. And, they seemed to miss a lot of the small sweetnesses that ought to have been there between Rory and Luke as well. The “pearls” moment was lovely…but…*sigh* I should stop. Probably 3/4 of GG fans could do a 10 page rant about Season 7. You know already. Lorelai’s marriage? *weeps* That was never supposed to happen. Lorelai getting married WITHOUT RORY. Just. Plain. Wrong. And, that’s ignoring the crucial element of WRONG GROOM!!! Please tell me to stop. My non-rants turn into incoherent messes of random, nonsensical ranting that keeps denying it’s rantness. So. STOPPING. NOW.
