Gilmore Girls Obsession


Somewhere between landing back in L.A. and now I got a serious obsession with the Gilmore Girls. I know, I know…it’s just a silly television show no longer on the air and in syndication. I blame Zelda for this. She has that snazzy dohicky thingie called Dish TV and Teevo (sp?). Which in the off chance you don’t know is where a television addict can record shows to watch later.

She became enamored with this show and started recording it and soon we were up late nights catching up on the latest hijinks with Rory and Loralei. I’m telling you, this show is absolutely addictive. I don’t know why exactly, but I must know what is going to happen. While I was still at Zelda’s it got so bad that I found I wanted to watch it two, three, four times a day. But there weren’t that many shows recorded. And Zelda had a rule, she never watched it unless there was more than one show recorded. And sometimes she’d watch it without telling me and I’d miss an episode.

“Luke and Loralei kissed?” I asked outraged at missing the event.

“Oh yeah,” Zelda murmured, “old  news.”

Since I didn’t have my own teevo I scoured the internet to find my own episodes. I checked fancast, hulu, and duck tv. They had episodes but the download and buffering was horrible – I’d miss every other word and the frames would freeze leaving Loralei and Rory in obscene poses and expression. I went so far as to download a ‘viewer’ from Duck tv which turned out to be a trojan horse supplier which ultimately caused me to have to reformat my hard drive and lose many of my files. The bastard. Never go there, it will be bad for your computer.

So after I moved, I started again in my quest for Gilmore Girl episodes to watch online. Zelda (now known as the evil one, insert evil laughter here) went and bought the entire seven seasons. She taunts me with this. I suppose I will have to pay admission or a rental fee to borrow them. I’m so jealous. I’m going to get my own set. haha.

Okay back to the story…I did find one website that has excellent viewing capabilities – I watched seven shows last night. It was amazing and I loved it. However, they have no more for me to watch. I can already feel the twitch of viewer desire kicking in. Don’t know what I’m going to do…

I guess when I get some dough I’m just going to have to buy the whole set. All 140 shows. Once I do I can’t gaurantee you’ll see much of me. I will be hunkered down in front of the dvd player watching, eating popcorn, watching more. When it’s all over I may start again from the top.

Any GG obsessers out there besides me?

  1. You know, I have toyed with the idea of watching this show for a few years…you know just buy a dvd set and go for it and see if I liked it, it’s just always looked so interesting….now I think I just might…thank you.

    LOL Kimmie, not sure if you’re going to thank me once you’ve started. I’m telling you, it’s addictive. But yeah, I think you’ll love it.
    Annie 🙂


  2. uh huh …. i have watched all seasons at least once and um yeah, most twice 😉

    Hey Dar!
    I have a feeling that if I get my hands on the dvd set I will watch it again and again. Something about it, eh?


  3. Hi Annie,

    I’d be satisfied if someone would just tell me where in hell Gilmore is!

    the Grit

    Hey Grit,
    Well I think there is a Gilmore in California – but the Gilmore Girls live in Stars Hollow, CT – a fictional town but I’d sure like living there. 😉


  4. Nope, never watched it. Not once.

    Wow, and I thought I was the only person left in the world without TiVo.

    Hey 30!
    Oh I think you might like it, but given your current obsession with gaming it might be wise to stay away for now. 😉 Apparently there are about 10 of us who don’t have TiVo. 😆


  5. I have seen every episode at least twice. I loved that show. My own daughter and I have always been that close so I sort of related to it though I was 30 years older than my daughter we still hung out together a lot.

    I think it’s a wonderful show.

    Hey Joanie!
    I can totally see how you would love the show. Just from what I’ve read about how close you are to your daughter on your blog – it would be right up your alley. Sigh…I need those dvds. 😆


  6. Hey. I landed on your page when I was distraught after my viewing of GGs on British TV channel E4 was interupted by a summer re-scheduling!! Its the best thing on tv. I absolutely love it and can’t understand why it isn’t still running. I’m a writer too so maybe it appeals to literary types. Will have a look at your site.

    Hey Alison,
    Thanks for visiting and commenting. I inadvertantly became addicted to the show when a friend started taping it and we would watch it at night. There is something about the show that just reels you in. There are rumors stateside that the show is coming back but nothing solid that I can find so far. I’ve been able to catch a few shows on – you might want to try that. The quality is pretty good and they add new shows every monday. Although, it’s pretty willy nilly and not neccesarily in order. My friend finally broke down and bought all the seasons on dvd. When I get some money I think I’ll do the same.

    What’s your blog address? I’d like to visit you too.
