Sets which should be somewhat permanent change, especially in early seasons. The foyer of Lorelai and Rory's house in S1 does not open to the living room, but it does for subsequent seasons. Luke's apartment changes frequently, with the bathroom moving from one side of the apartment in S1 to the other in S2. The cash register in the diner switches from one end of the counter to the other regularly in the first couple of seasons. The elder Gilmore's house changes as well. These are in addition to very large changes from pilot to series. See more »
[Lorelai and Rory haven't seen each other in a while because of their busy schedules, and are talking on the phone about it]
I'm mad and needy, and I ended up going out to dinner alone with my parents, who bickered the whole time about which Beatle is alive and which is dead.
So, where'd they land?
John and Keith are dead. Paul and Bingo are still kicking.

i do not exactly know, which audience this show is meant to appeal to. i am a single male in my late thirties with a long history of being in love with my best female "friend". so of course, it will always be the Luke-lorelai relationship that will appeal to me. but the way lorelai interacts with her parents, the way, the town's community is depicted, the sheer speed of a 45 minute drama/comedy, are all simply wonderful. in a lot of ways, it reminds me of thirties' screwball comedies, you know the ones, katherine hepburn, cary grant. anyway, this show is perfectly written, directed and acted. it's a pleasure to watch. my previous favourite shows have been "northern exposure", "picket fences", "buffy" (oh yes) and "frasier". "gilmore girls" took the best of all of them and put it together. i hope, they can keep this sort of level and i hope it will never stop.
