Rory isn't pleased when Emily decided to play interior decorator in her dorm suite. The dorm party was a little shrill due to Paris. The scenes between Lorelai and Sookie were a bit painful to watch as they try to figure out how to make their temporary catering venture work. Will we ever hear that 4th roommate speak? Rory and Lorelai's conversations didn't seem to have that patented GG vibe/punch to them. But still, the episode was better than over half of what I normally watch.

It was good to see Lanie make a brief cameo as well, looks like she is going to a local Korean College. We also got a glimpse of the future love interest of Rory on the floor naked after the dorm party.

The catering business seems like a good idea to bridge the time before their own inn becomes a reality.

I liked that surround sound and plasma system that Grandma had hooked up for Rory Posted Image

Lorelie needs a man in her life soon.

I liked this episode a lot better than the first two of the season, but they are still spending way too much time setting up future events (e.g. the whole "Digger" subplot). The college and kids parties were both a hoot, though, which is why this episode has the edge over its predecessors. Regards,

I was shocked to see that guy who partners up with Richard in the opening credits. I know I've seen him on other comedies, and I think he was in "The Last Days of Disco". Searching...searching...ah, the new guy's name is Chris Eigeman.

Rory gets a nifty new haircut for the next ep! Makes her look more grown up/Ivy League.

I didn't like that shorter cut on Rory. Oh, if anyone cares, I spotted Milo (Jess) on Boston Public, and he appears to have a small recurring role (as undercover cop who looks young enough to pass for high schooler).

That’s what I thought too Patrick. It might pick up, as we have seen plenty of one-sided telephone conservations by Lorelai that had the zip. But the rhythm was just missing in the dialogue here.

The new BF was apparent well before he was naked in the hall. At least one shot had him isolated in the background, with the lighting picking him out—all with Rory in the foreground. The new partner is just too obvious—the more so as Mom already hates him.

I still like the show, but they've changed too many things at once. Lorelai leaving the independence inn, Rory going to college and consequently not living at home. They don't walk around Stars Hollow anymore--the town has pretty much gone to the wayside. They can change a few things gradually, but doing it all at once is a bit jarring.

I agree, considering almost nothing huge happened from 2.04-3.18...

I just hope that they don’t have to contrive a reason for the two to meet every week (other than the obligatory dinner). A big part of the charm of the show was the chemistry between them and how they related to the outside world. The plots will have to be forced to keep that up. It is probably a little early to judge how Stars Hollow and the residents will fit into the plots—I’ll wait and see on this.
