This has been excellent so far. I've been missing this show for about a year. The dialogue is like Quentin Tarantino and Aaron Sorkin had a kids with the rapid fast pacing and the smart pop culture references. It's about time for this show to come out on DVD.

Tonight's episode was just great, much better than the season premiere. ~T

The episode started stiffly at Lorelai's house, but once they get to Yale, the vibe went back to normal again, and the rapid-fire dialogue was clicking once more. There were many funny bits: Luke trying to get a divorce, wanting nothing in the process, while the lawyers pressing him to want something. The Yale bedding gag. I wished they didn't ruin the "Paris as Rory's roommate" tidbit in the commercials. Paris's lifecoach bit was hilarious when Paris goes off the "calmness" reservation. Getting Rory "introduced" to her dormmates by Lorelai's "event planning" skills was a good way to settle Rory into college.

Yes, it looks like the show is back. The new roommate and classmates are probably no replacements for Madeline and Louise, though. The real Paris is just underneath the surface, ready to drive Rory and the new girl nuts. The last scene with Lorelai in the empty house was one of the best in the series. There is a big hole in her life now, and she is uncertain how to fill it. I really want this show to come out on DVD. I've missed a few eps in Seasons 2-3 because it was opposite Buffy.

[quote] Luke trying to get a divorce, wanting nothing in the process, while the lawyers pressing him to want something. [quote] ‘I want my three hours back’, was just too funny. As was the legal team going off to work on it.

Did I miss something or did the fourth suite-mate never show up? I don't like "craft-person" Paris, but I don't suspect that she'll be around for very long. It's like trying to train a weasel to guard your chickens - her true nature will surface soon. My favorite line is probably "I recognize that tree.", just because of the straight delivery. I thought the "I want my mommy" bit was weak (probably just because of the time element), and I almost wish they'd have written it the other way around. Brad

"I recognize that tree" was the perfect punch line to that scene...

I don't think there's a show on TV right now that makes me laugh harder.

BTW, I just sent an email to rory.gilmore@yale.edu just to see if anything happens.

Or maybe I should have tried rony.gilmore? Posted Image

My favorite line/moment from last night was Rory mushing her nose an wondering if it was made of clay. I think Bledel is at her funniest when Rory is in shock over something.

I thought Lorelie staying at the dorm overnight was a bit forced and I was concerned for Rory that it would present her as a real goofball to her new schoolchums. Also, I don't mind Paris being in Yale with her, but I would have preferred some new roommates as the show could have used some new blood in that department. I hope they do not abondon Lanie, she was a fav of mine. So far no sighting.

The real danger in being considered a goofball is being lumped in with her suitemates. Posted Image

On the other hand, she’ll look cool standing next to them. Posted Image
