Welcome to the A to Z blogging challenge! All month long we'll be creating posts for each letter of the alphabet according to a theme. Click here to see the list of participating blogs.
My theme is Memorable Characters featuring characters from books, movies, and TV.
From: Gilmore Girls
Known for: coffee addiction, talking very fast, mother-daughter relationship envy
I just finished a re-watch of the series (inspired by recaps on Forever Young Adult). While it can be annoying that everyone in Stars Hollow talks exactly the same way, how many other shows have delved this deeply into mother-daughter relationships? Even going multi-generational with Lorelai's mom Emily. Each time I watch this show, I understand further a different character's point of view; how selfish Lorelai can be, how Emily is cold but ultimately loving, and well, I almost always want to hug Rory (except when she stole that boat). The Gilmores are smart, pop culture savvy, neurotic, make excellent friends, and are some of my all-time favorite ladies on TV. Neither Lorelai or Rory have fared well with men, but their mistakes add to their layers.
Are you a Gilmore Girls fan? Who is your favorite non-Gilmore?
