Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lydia Vanderloo
Although it hasn't enjoyed the blockbuster success of such earlier WB hits as Dawson's Creek, the mother-daughter series Gilmore Girls has built a rabid fan base with its clever dialogue, engaging characters, and potent doses of drama. Collecting the show's entire first season (21 episodes), this set allows fans to explore the kinetic relationship between spunky Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) and her bookish teen daughter, Rory (Alexis Bledel), as well as to savor the spitfire dialogue that distinguishes the show from common fare. Fans who eagerly attempt to decipher each and every cultural reference in the scripts will relish the bonus material, which includes lengthy interview clips with the show's creators and actors, plus a scene featuring deconstructed "factoids." Season 1 introduces the series' main players, including the intimidating, blue-blooded senior Gilmores (Kelly Bishop and Edward Herrmann) -- who have always had a tenuous relationship with their only daughter -- along with Lorelai's best buddies, accident-prone chef Sookie (Melissa McCarthy) and scruffy diner owner Luke (Scott Patterson), who's got his own magnetic rapport with Ms. G. The colorful supporting characters, minor in screen time only, bring to life the milieu of tiny Stars Hollow, Connecticut. Standouts include: Keiko Agena as Rory's buddy Lane, a pop music-obsessed teen struggling with a strict Korean mom; Jared Padalecki as Rory’s perfect first boyfriend, Dean; and Yanic Truesdale as the endearing and curmudgeonly concierge Michel. Lorelai and Rory's joint obsessions, from food to film nights, lend a sisterly tone to their relationship, as do their dovetailing romances: Rory's with Dean and Lorelai's with English teacher Max (Scott Cohen). But when the going gets tough, as when private school tuition necessitates an appeal to Rory's grandparents, Lorelai is every bit the mom, albeit in her own unconventional way. Both heartbreaking and heartwarming, Gilmore Girls offers laughs and truisms for every generation.

Gilmore Girls is an excellent show; it's about time it was released on DVD! This is the best season--there's a balance between drama and comedy, and the characters are witty without being wierd. Now, in its 4th season, Lorelai especially is less funny than strange. I still watch it, but only because I'm addicted and can't stop. Also, being a Dean fan, I was awfully upset when Rory later dumped him for Jess. But-this season is before that, when she and Dean are still happy together! I absolutely love this show, especially this season, you have to buy it!

Gilmore Girls is so great...everybody can find one character on gilmore girls that they can relate to...i can't wait til this DVD comes out....

gilmore girls is the best family show to come out in a long time. lorelai's mother/sister friendship with rory is enviable; we all wish we had that kind of relationship with our mothers. this show is charming, sweet, funny, sad... it's the perfect show. i love it!!! it's about time they came out with this set.

Gilmore girls is the best show i have ever seen. Everything is so real,like it is in real life and it makes you want to have a life like they do and its not that hard if you want to. I cant wait til the first season has been released.Hurry please And i hope that in the future we can by many more seasons.

Gilmore Girls focuses on the ups and downs of a mother who had a child when she was only a teenager. Most teenage mothers think that young mothers and daughters don't have a close relationship. I loved the shows because they made me realize you can turn every mistake into a enjoyable situation.

This is the best show on television, no doubt, no arguments. I do not care what anyone else says, this is he best! I can not wait for season 2, i just went out and bought season 1 and watched almost all of it already! Lorelai is the absolute coolest, and Rory is awesome! watch the seaon finale this tuesday. i just can not beleive that Lorelai and Luke are getting together, my dream come true! I will say no more--but we all knew it was gonna happen! Everyone that writes a review...who do you think Rory should be with? Dean or Jess? I'm a Dean gurl here! BUY THE DVD!

I greatly enjoy this show and I'm looking foreward to season 2. I've never bought a tv show before, but I had to have Gilmore girls because it is so well written and the acting is outstanding.

i love this show and have been addicted to it since season 1! lorlei and rory have a relationship to envy and there is just the right amount of humor to balance out the drama created in small town stars hollow. i am thrilled they have finally put it on dvd. unfortunately where i just moved to they don't have gilmore girls so these dvds are perfect for me.if you have never seen the show then now is the perfect time to start- its an easy show to get into and love!

My heading says it all! I love this show because it shows the relationship between a young lady, Lorelai, who had a child at a young age, and because of that (and other things) she doesn't really fit in with her parents (mostly her mom.) Through all the good times, bad times, and everything in between, she and her daughter, Rory, stick together and love each other more everyday! It's a great show that shows the kind of relationship every girl wants with her mother.

For those of you missing the 'feel-good, I can relate to this, this could be my life, chummy comedy' of Sex and the City, this is your (MUCH TAMER) show. I don't know what it is about this show, but you always feel better after watching it. The main characters are compelling; the writing is deep AND hilarious (a rare blend); and who can't relate to sleeping late and then remembering you forgot to pick up your dry cleaning, and running into your worst enemy when you look ridiculous??!?! Perfect get your girlfriends together and watch DVD.

This is one of the best mother/daughter shows on television today. I always watch this show with my mom and everyone else should too. The conversations between Lorelai and Rory are so witty and hilarious that I have to watch the whole season in one sitting because I can't take my eyes off the screen when this show is on. I love this show!

My husband(YES, I SAID HUSBAND!) found this cute little show one night and ever since it has been our date night show! If you have ever wanted to watch a cute romantic comedy about life this is the one to get! I can relate a lot of my feelings to this show. Once you start you have to finish!

This dvd was so amazing it got my sports/seinfeld hooked dad to fall in love with it.I recomend it with 200%.I know you wil enjoy it as much as I do!!!
Guest More than 1 year ago
This highly underrated show is the best television show on tv. I got the dvd and got my sister who had said she did not want to bother watching Gilmore Girls hooked. Now she watches it when I come home from school. If you get confused by the fast talking stick with it because you get use to it real quick and then you will fall in love with every character on the show and will wish that Stars Hollow was a real place you could vist.

i luv gilmore girls! great show with inspiring role models and characters. definitly a must see!! after your first episode you will be swept away with the trail of gilmore girls fans and won't want to miss any other part of this series

This series is really great. I recently had surgery and while home I watched the entire series of Gilmore Girls. It really hits you close to home just how wonderful the mother and daughter reaction is. It makes you want to have that with your mother. I reccomend this to anyone who wants a good, lighthearted show that most of the topics discussed are relatively close to what we go through every day.
Guest More than 1 year ago
This is the greatest tv show ever! The moment you start watching the very first episode of this amazing series you will be hooked~! You will get caught up in the Gilmore household and their lives! It is perfectly amazing! If you don't watch this show you will be missing out!!
