    Or, this show is losing it's spark.

    Man, what a snooze-fest. Tonight's episode was extremely dull, and just seemed extremely geared for the teens. Usually, it doesn't seem like WB interferes with the show, but this one just seemed so... un GILMORE GIRLS like...

    What seemed ripe with gilmore-type comedy, but it sadly wasn't.

    I did enjoy Luke's story, though.

    It was like, someone who was a fan that tried to replicate the writing style, and failed.

    But it was Amy Sherman-Palladino (creator of the show) who wrote this episode. There were plenty of zingers, but the audio just seemed a tad to low compared to the background noise.

    I'm liking Jason less and less, but of course, it's setting up an even more overt love triangle for Lorelai with Luke's "marriage" on the rocks.

    The Spring Break parts were okay, though the odds of running into Louise and Madeline are pretty high, don'tchathink?

    Glen (their driver) is that guy in the latest Burger King commercial where a hottie licks the mayo off another geek's cheek who flubbed her BK order, and "Glen" makes this hilarious "Aaaaaak!!!" sound at the end.

    If by "high" you mean "low", sure. [​IMG]

    Not the show's best episode; it's a pretty good demonstration of how the show's central axis is Rory-Lorelei-Emily. The episodes where there's not a lot of interaction between the three just aren't the same.

    Oops, was in a hurry to post before I left for work...

    Also, the Dean storyline just rots for me. Rory's now gonna be a homewrecker!

    Nah. I'm pretty sure that marriage would have been in trouble if Dean had never seen Rory again.

    But if Dean keeps sniffing around Rory, you know the folks in Stars Hollow will blame Rory for Dean's failed marriage.

    The problem was that Rory and Paris were both just insufferable and it drove me nuts. I know Rory is supposed to be wholesome and Paris an "Intellectual" but I have never seen 2 college students with such little interest in having any fun. Seems like such a waste of college years.

    That's what makes them in stark contrast to Louise and Madeline. Intellectualizing fun is their (Rory/Paris) hallmark.

    I thought the spring break stuff had potential, but it came off seeming a bit contrived. Luke's call to Lorelai was great, though. "...it's a big white building, you'll recognize it because of the 'Police' sign out front..."

    Nomination for best lines of the show:
    (Girl in Hall): Is it raining outside?
    (Paris): No, it's National Baptism Day! Tie your tubes, idiot!

    I thought the show was okay. Not the greatest but not horrible...maybe a good description of the entire season thus far?

    My favorite lines these days are coming from Rory, mainly because her delivery and the situation.

    "Get away from me. You're not my type!"

    I don't mind the Dean plot but I don't think it would be good to get them back together right now - Rory needs someone else besides her first boyfriend and the guy that treated her like crap. Aren't we supposed to see her grow?

    I had read that Amy Sherman-Paladino was having trouble finding a young actor whom she liked as a new boyfriend for Rory. Maybe she's given up and decided to go back to Dean?
