Thursday Thirteen #49

Thirteen Attractions of Gilmore Girls with a Variety of Video Examples

I had hoped to include substantial commentary with each point but have run out of time and energy. The following amounts to a substantial outline with citations for the essay(s) I would like to write on what I see as the value and relevance of the Gilmore Girls for anyone interested in the art of storytelling or the art of relationship.

  1. The story. I learned a lot about the structure of story and what makes it work its magic. :
    "From the beginning to the end"
    This vid will serve as an orientation to a few of the characters and plot lines over the seven seasons. But its emphasis on romantic relationships makes Gilmore Girls look like a Soap Opera. And that is so wrong.
  2. The Music:
    The soundtrack music is as eloquent as the dialog.
    Grant-Lee Phillips Stars Hollow Troubador
  3. Romance:
    Luke & Lorelai The Early Years
  4. Small Town Theater:
    Luke was a Trekky!!

    Gift for Luke

    Kirk Crashes Into Lukes Diner
    Stars Hollow
  5. First Loves & Coming of age:
    Lane Kim
  6. Witticisms and rapid fire repartee:
    Wordplay II
    More Wordplay
    What'd you say?
    More Gilmorisms!
  7. Celeb Cameos:
    Norman Mailer I'm Pregnant!
    Madeleine Albright
    --During the estrangement Rory dreams Albright has substituted for Lorelai in their annual birthday ritual.
    The Real Paul Anka
  8. Quirky Characters:
    Mrs. Kim
  9. Conflict:

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It's easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!

Your are a true fan! I've only seen this show a few times, and on reruns, so I didn't know the backstory. This will help.

Babe, I love you, but I can't see me sharing this love you have for this show. Sorry 'bout that. :(

For some reason I just never got into this show when it was on, but I'm glad you can find enjoyment in it.

LOL I know I just left a comment a little while ago, but now I'm back to ask if you'd like to answer some questions? If/when you have some time, of course.

Tag... you're it! :-)

Hi! Cool TT list. I haven't seen a lot of the Gilmore Girls (for some reason I don't seem to watch much network TV) but what I have seen I've enjoyed. Might have to borrow the DVDs from the library (no commercials- yay).

I'm afraid I've never heard of this show. But I have enjoyed looking round your blog.
