GG Update and Trivia

Jackie read over the blog last night and wanted to help out in sharing public GG information:

07/15 - "I went to the WB studios yesterday and when we drove past a house the tour guide said that this is where they are building a new GG set. It's gonna be a blues bar where Rory and Logan (her new boyfriend) will always hang out. And we couldn't see the Yale set, 'cause they are building something inside there too ... I don't know what though."

So, if this is true, this probably is one of the few sets they've built for the show. Courtesy of IMDB.com:

The residential street attached is called Kings Row and was built in 1941 (predating the town set) for the Ronald Reagan film of the same name. No new structures have been added to the backlot for the "Gilmore Girls," although the backlot set remains dressed for the show throughout the television shooting season (July through March or April).

The exterior "Midwest" sets, which incorporate Stars Hollows' town square, the Gazebo, Luke's Diner and Doosey's Market are also featured prominently in the original theatrical version of The Music Man (1962), and "The Dukes of Hazzard" (1979). The exterior of Lorelai's house was Uncle Jesse's house on The Dukes of Hazzard.

So how's that for trivia?

And don't tell me you'd rent The Music Man and Dukes of Hazzard just to make the references. D, let me know if this is right since I know your hubby has DOH on DVD.

But if you guys do, let me know what you think about it.

Counting the hours till Amy's return... K, hope you're having a blast.

I didn't have to rent DOH--my friend's new boyfriend is in LOVE with the show, and I was forced to watch it last week. I mean, I did watch it years ago on it's first release (that and Hee Haw were the only shows we watched at Granny's house--how redneck are we?)

The did go to Uncle Jesse's. And I'd heard that too. It looked the same. . of course, it looked grungier and dirty, cause it was in Hazard County, not Stars Hollow. Funny how they do that, isn't it? They had to take Boss Hog to Uncle Jesse's house to come up with the plan that he'd died in the eppy I was forced to watch. My gf really does love her new man, I tell you.

I didn't know that. What an interesting piece of trivia!

I am so glad to be back! Words cannot express how glad I am to be back! I missed you guys, and I actually kissed my computer screen when I got home, which is saying something, because we have a sort of love/hate relationship going on. I'm still not all that crazy about the new one. Even though at a month old, it's not all that new.

It was touching. I was without internet access for 7 days. I was so happy to get online!
