goodbye, Gilmore Girls

May contain spoilers.

Last year, my flatmate bought all seven seasons of Gilmore Girls - which I had never seen before - and we started watching them together - a few episodes here and there, only when we were both around, and not busy. It took us till tonight to finish them off.

I feel a little emotional about finishing the series because it's just such excellent TV, and it's got me through the most difficult moments of the last nine months and of the MA. Gilmore Girls makes everything happier. I love Lorelai and Rory. I love Kirk, I love Michel, I love Paris, I love Richard and Emily, I love Luke, I love Luke and Lorelai (and I am so happy they got back together at the end of the series, because end of the series means happily ever after) ... and I could just go on and on.

I won't lie - there were moments I hated, like when Lorelai and Rory weren't speaking for a while, or when Lorelai and Luke broke up for the first time - but nevertheless I watched glued to the screen and thank goodness! the universe realigned eventually.

Goodbye, Gilmore Girls. I will watch you again, but I will know what happens and it won't be the same. Nevertheless, you will remain a delight.

I love GG. I have to confess I'm not a Luke fan, though. I could never deal with a man that moody. Though I prefer him to the moodier still Jess.

I have to admit, I felt the same way almost two years ago, when I started watching the show after it had been cancelled. I've been getting a little urge lately to watch all over again.
