Gilmore Road Trip Anyone?

I was looking through some archives, wondering why everyone on the show wasn’t awarded an Emmy.  I know that they got one for the makeup they did for the The Festival of Living Pictures, & rightly so.  I guess they don’t give out Emmy’s for “Hottest Diner Owner” or “Most Dorothy Parker References in Prime Time TV”, but they should, they really should.

I’ve always had a particular fondness for this episode, simply because it’s so pretty to look at.  I’m always amazed just how much they look like the paintings.  Apparently, there is an actual event in California named “The Pageant of the Masters.”  It’s in Laguna Beach, which scares me because I used to watch that precursor to The Hills & promised myself that I would never meet anyone from that show.  It’s been going on since 1932 & the ticket prices are quite reasonable.  The Pageant of the Masters is 90 minutes long & is takes place during 8 weeks every summer.  I want to go…really, really, really bad…a lot.  Maybe not this year, but hopefully soon.  All I can say is Don’t flinch, don’t flinch.

    this really is one of the prettiest episodes. although i’ve always wondered why lorelai made such a big deal about how pretty the dress is and how it fits her just right–she doesn’t wear the dress, just the makeup and bonnet. always bugged me for some reason.
