How well do you know me? Pretty well? Then you won’t be surprised about how great my Tuesday night was. Yes I am speaking of the season finale of Gilmore Girls. The end of this sixth season just means I have one more DVD box set to get, and yes, I have them all.
For those of you not watching the best show on television, I will not bore you with the exciting and hilarious plot intricacies, rather I’ll highlight the importance of tonight’s episode. The creative, directing, producing, writing team of Amy Sherman-Palladino & Daniel Palladino who are the parents of the show did not renew contracts with the CW. The CW is the new combined channel from the WB and UPN that will start next fall. Tonight all the stops were pulled out in the final episode the two will be involved in.
More interesting to my readers might be that Jan Levinson (formerly Gould) of The Office had an important role tonight. Also Kenny James, otherwise known as “my gay friend who runs a copy store,” from My Name is Earl played the Stars Hollow police who was asked to round up the village troubadours, one of whom was Chloe O'Brian (sans Jack Bauer) of 24. The regular village troubadour, played by Grant Lee Philips, got his big break to open for Neal Young. As I have often suspected Young is described as a jerk. “Heart of Gold my ass” Philips said. With a vacancy for the official village troubadour while Philips is absent the eastern regional troubadour association drove in by the bus load to the sleepy little Stars Hollow including Sonic Youth, Sam Phillips, Yo La Tengo, Sparks, Joe Pernice (of the Pernice Brothers and one of my all time favorites) and Dave Gruber Allen.
Yep, and you missed it. But I did record the show and may watch it from time to time as my crush on Lauren Graham lingers through the summer. You are always welcome to come over and watch every episode if you get the urge.
