I TRIED. I really did.
All seven seasons of Gilmore Girls are available on Netflix now. I'd never wanted to see it before, but there's been such a fuss— I decided to watch the pilot and give it a chance.
It was as bad as I've heard! It was WORSE. I know it has a lot of fans and was super popular, but that mom is terrible. I couldn't get over how immature, childish, and selfish her character is... and she's supposed to be a "cool" mom who's friends with her daughter? Painful to watch. How on earth did they do 7 seasons of this?
I'm guessing the "good girl" daughter is going to have sex and it will be a disaster, the mom will find out, and "Oh my god, how could you?!" and big drama. "I don't want you to become pregnant like I did when I was your age!" Cue moral lesson.
Ok, how close am I? :P
The COOL PART was seeing Jared Padalecki (Sam from Supernatural) so young! And also Matt Czuchry (Cary from The Good Wife). I had no idea they were on Gilmore Girls— surprise, surprise.
