I guess I'm in the minority that has no problem with teenagers engaging in sexual activities. I find it quite normal and expected. There are a lot of hormones exploding around that age. Personally, I was always confused how a girl like Rory could have 2 long-term relationships and STILL be a virgin. THAT is not typical. Although, I'm not fond with how they rushed the whole event. For most women, their first time isn't usually something very pleasant (I'm referring to the initial discomfort associated with intercourse). I'm not so certain she would've been so non-chalant about the whole event with her mother. That aside, I did enjoy the Luke-Lorelai moments but even then I realize, they're an only-on-TV couple. Honestly, those two characters have nothing in common. Lorelai is a bit of a snob (although she fails to see it in her own mind) and quite self-centered; Luke is a grouchy, workaholic hermit. As much fun as it is to see them finally together, I realize it's a bit of a fantasy union. Am I the only one who gets a kick out of having Emily on the show? She always brightens up the show for me. The show is sometimes so sweet that it needs a character like Emily to shake the foundation a bit. Paris used to be like that in the past, but they softened her up too much this season. Overall, this season was fun and I'm looking forward to the next.
