    All I have to say is:

    That last guy needs a good smack in the head.

    You have to remember, not everyone is everyone's type. Myself, I'm still surprised a woman as hot as Lorelai would be single all these years. Then again, I could see her driving men crazy will all the rambling [​IMG]

    I especially enjoyed Emily in this episode. For some reason, I always get a kick out of the sparring sessions between Emily and Lorelai. Too much fun.

    I thought being one of the stars of the show meant being everyone's type? [​IMG]

    The best writing of the season so far.

    The sequence where Sookie and Lorelai are discussing baby names ("Colgate") was done in a single take walking through the entire exterior of the Stars Hollow set. It went on for about a minute and a half. That's the kind of stuff that makes this my favorite show on TV! [​IMG]

    I was shocked to see Traci Lords on this show! Whoa!

    I think the writer did well in some spots, and not so well in other spots when it came to the reparte between Lorelai and Rory, and Lorelai and Sookie, but Lorelai and Emily was good.

    For a girl who went off to college, Rory sure spends a lot of time back home. [​IMG]

    I caught the guest star credit "Traci Elizabeth Lords" and wasn't sure if it was going to be her or somebody who didn't want to be confused with her (because of the middle name). And actually it's not that big of a shock if you just look at her mainstream acting career, but few of us ever do.

    This season is a huge step up from the horrible second half of season 2, and season 3.

    I remember last season saying "I'll watch the first 3 episodes and see where it's going..."

    Watched the first 5, and I'm planning to continue. It's finally the show I know and love again. [​IMG]

    Lorelai in glasses... yowza!

    And if I never hear of "urine-mints" again, it'll be too soon.

    Sounds like we can be grateful for the addition of Buffy scribe Jane Espenson.

    I wasn't that impressed by her episode, it had a very awkward portrayal of Taylor and wasn't half as snappy as this week's episode.

    This week's was return to form. Very solid episode. I love when they include Emily as her relatinship with Lorelai is fodder for great comedy. Luke's use was also very funny and I could see myself in many of Lorelai's movie watching quirks.

    Yeah, but by writer's guild rules she got credit because she put the most into that script.

    Overall the writing hasn't changed much over the last few years because it's still under the direction of Amy Sherman-Palladino. Until she steps down I don't expect any major shift in the style of the show (like has happend to 'The West Wing').

    When are we going to see Lane's mom already! [​IMG] I love her.

    Hmmm, perhaps it was either a slip-up with the writing, or they're trying to establish that Rory isn't so connected to that part of her life anymore.

    Well, seeing how much interaction there has been between Rory and her dad lately (he didn't show for her graduation, remember?) her forgetting about a half sister is not that surprising, especially when she's lived 17 years being an only child with minimal contribution from the father.
