Goodbye Girls!

(Note: I haven't been posting lately because I've been busy moving into our new house - which I WILL post about soon.)

The series finale of Gilmore Girls.

On one hand, I'm sad that it's over. Gilmore Girls has been one of my favorite shows since it started 7 years ago. I even named my child Lorelei (I know the gilmores spell it differently). I have to say that Kirk, Miss Patty, and Babette were some of the most unique characters on tv.

On the other hand, it was time for it to end. I've long thought that the show should end with Rory's graduation. Time for everyone to move on.

I really liked the finale. Rory going off to conquer the world, Lorelai and Luke back together, Lorelai and her parents finally starting to develop a real relationship. There had been talk of a 13-episode season next year to wrap up the series, but I really can't imagine what else was left to say. Yes, the episode was a little sappy. And there haven't been enough pop culture references this entire season. But overall, I think it was a great way to end a great series.

Goodbye Gilmore Girls! Thanks for 7 years of Tuesday night entertainment!
