The Gilmore Porn Flick

You would not imagine what happened to my VCR. It went zonkers! Maybe it knew that Veronica Mars was over and it decided to hemorrhage but what was taped in my beloved VCR wasn't my VM. it was porn, I tell you.

Let me take you a step back. I haven't changed the settings to my VCR since I've moved into the Casa Bosque (well, except when I realized VM was on the line up and I had to add it on my favorite scheduled programming). So, technically, my TV setting wouldn't change, right?

WRONG!

There I was, watching my Gilmore Girls Season Finale and right before Lorelai does the unthinkable to Luke (and of course, I do mean the proposal), Kevin Ferdeline's nostril appears on my TV. Gack! Quelle Horreur! Immediately followed by a giggling Britney. What the heck just happened?

In all the 21 episodes of GG/VM back to back, NEVER have I encountered a cliffhanger ending and a bad segue to another show.

For a second, I really thought that P.Nilly was playing a game with me. For a brief moment in time, I thought I was actually going to view the proverbial Pam/Tommy porn flick. To my dismay, I had an untimely ending of the GG ep and the too-close-for-comfort nostril of KF. I was truly upset.

But I am not completely down on my luck. Tomorrow, I get to watch GG again, this time at 0100. I am up and I still would be unwinding from watching Star Wars III for the second time so it's not really all that bad. I will get to finish watching it.

But before I lose my momentum in all things GG (and wait to be awed or disappointed by the once brilliant ASP), I am giving my critique.

I should hand this to Katherine. Finn and Colin outdid themselves in the opener. The swagger and the supposed schwanging Finn wasn't able to get due to Logan's untimely ending in the clinker was worth at least 2 chuckles. The kowtow to Rory and Lorelai (the line about Rory coming from good genes was worth smiling at) did me in. P Nilly doesn't understand my fascination with these two guys but he thought they were rather amusing compared to Logan.

I have to give credit to Amy in regards to Logan. I think Logan knew that Lorelai, despite her hip chick cool exterior, is not the woman you would want to mess around with especially when it comes to all things related to Rory. Sure, he sort of bad mouthed his daddy. Sure, he was upset that dad gave Rory a hard time but I think he could do better. Do I think he'd do better next season? I won't hold my breath to it. I've already scribbled my name in blood in the Anti-Logan campaign. Tristin, he is not.

Lorelai. Wow. can she adopt me? I mean, my mom's cool and all but she is a woman who's backbone I wish Rory had. Apparently, this season, Rory was more Chris than anything. Running away from all things that make them seem look like a failure. Anyway, I could see how Lorelai could be disappointed by her upbringing. I, too, would've questioned my parents' integrity if they swayed immediately at the slight quiver of their grandchild's lip (and BTW, no, I am not pregnant nor any of my brothers or in-laws bound to have their significant others pregnant soon... I hope). For all Lorelai is, she is a strong woman.

Luke. Lorelai is fortunate to have found such a great rock in him. He has been the father Rory never had compared to Chris' absences. He has been the stand-in husband to Lorelai. He has been the one who looked after all things Gilmore that Chris should've done. Now don't get me wrong, I like Chris. I think he and Lorelai have a future together but as all things change, so should they as a couple. Lorelai and Chris may be the "soul mates" Dawson and Joey are but Lorelai's fate lies in the hands of Luke.

Mrs. Kim. Now, there's one character I've yelped for joy when I watched this ep. The part where she says she's disappointed in Lane for giving up on the band was a hoot! When she booked the band for the Christian tour, I thought Gil was going to faint. Thank goodness he thought that Mrs. Kim's wackiness was just too good to overlook. I wonder if he crapped on his pants when the old lady gave him a run down on how bad his van was in its current state.

Lane. She was one character I sorely miss. She actually had the best lines and scenes this whole season (other than the JJs of course). I hope things get better for her on season 6.

I will not even pollute this page in regards to Emily and Richard. Truly, as parents and grandparents, they are a disappointment.

Lastly, Rory. Where do I start? Let me say, I really do miss the Rory of Chilton. The Rory of Yale is someone I don't recognize, or for that matter, like. She is a petulant child that needs to grow up. What of her character speaks of her when she enters the workforce set up by gramps and grams? And if she thinks it's tough being snobbed by the Huntzbergers, what would the Hartford community say about her? "That's Emily's granddaughter. Do you know she quit Yale? She's so much like her mother, a shame." Has she no pride riding on her surname like a wave? No skills to speak of other than that assigned to her by the Hartford community out of pity? I believe things will eventually rectify itself but it hurts to watch her fumble things so badly. She might as well be the Daunte Culpepper of life!

So here we are, another season ended. I was hoping this would redeem last season's ending. I guess I have to hold my breath until tomorrow, when I actually view the final credits at 2AM. Until then, fanfics would have to fill the void.

Unfortunately, the good writers are disappearing.

I still hold out a candle to the few remaining good authors out there.

Maybe VM at LJ would keep me focused and entertained.

that tape with brit and kev there might be a biohazard--you might want to take special care in disposing of it.

Britney and Kevin--I just realized they share the namesakes of the great ditz of Daria and her beau. How appropriate.

Amen to disappearing authors. At least there are a few that update just in time to make my day (or months as it turns out being). We need some major inspiration.

Eww! You have a tape of Britney and KFed? Ewwww! You must tape over it immediately, who knows what kind of diseases are in that tape. Two words... The Ring. I could happen. This is probably how it starts.

Finn and Colin were definately the best part of the episode. I loved the comment about the good genes, and Finn's hair was very nice. (See how the name Finn-atic fits? I noticedt hat his hair changed from Black to Dark Brown.) I love them, I wish that the WB would give them their own show. It would be great! I might even let Logan guest star once Tristan comes back to take Rory away from him!
