Isn’t it funny how the elements that once brought them freedom led to their ultimate demise?
Listen you and I, we saw life in the lifeless. And that is a gift that we have a duty to protect.
Hailing from the same era of television that made Joss Whedon and Aaron Sorkin into icons, ‘Gilmore Girls’ featured many of the same qualities that made ‘Buffy’ and ‘West Wing’ so beloved — great actors, quality production values and dialogue so distinctive that you could pick it out of a line-up, blindfolded. And that came directly from series showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino (who created the show with her husband Dan).
While not necessarily everyone’s taste, the speed-talking and pop culture references made sure that ‘Gilmore Girls’ sounded like nothing else on television, and proved Sherman-Palladino’s importance to the show when, after her departure at the end of Season 6, the series struggled to recapture her voice. When discussing the history of auteur television, Sherman-Palladino’s name frankly does not come up enough, and that’s a shame.

‘Is it that they think it a duty to be continually talking,’ pursued she: ‘and so never pause to think, but fill up with aimless trifles and vain repetitions when subjects of real interest fail to present themselves, or do they really take a pleasure in such discourse?’
‘Very likely they do,’ said I; ‘their shallow minds can hold no great ideas, and their light heads are carried away by trivialities that would not move a better-furnished skull; and their only alternative to such discourse is to plunge over head and ears into the slough of scandal—which is their chief delight.’
The peaches we eat today look very little like the first peaches planted. We can thank the Chinese farmers who first domesticated the fruit for kicking off the millennia of breeding for perfection.
