It shamelessly steals from Gilmore Girls — I mean, the main character is a rich, hot MILF named Laura, for crying out loud. Small, wacky New England Town with odd town meetings. Teenage daughter who’s too nice to be into the stuff that she’s strangely drawn to. Then it steals from Joey’s Creek by having
Lorelai’s Laura’s son, the show’s Pacey, sleep with an older woman. Then it steals from Ed by having the Lauralai’s main love interest be a scrappy, goofy lawyer with mother issues of his own. I swear, if I start hearing Sam Phillips’ La-la’s *I’m* gonna sue the show.
I could say more about how I find all the shameless theft from other, greater shows, is annoying me, but I won’t. What I’ll be looking for is signs of it breaking away from its
very obviously stolen source material influences.
