alt.tv.gilmore-girls is an unmoderated forum for the discussion
of the critically-acclaimed television series Gilmore Girls,
which airs on the WB network and the ABC Family Channel
in the United States. Discussion on all aspects of the show,
including but not limited to characters, plotlines, ratings, and
media coverage, is welcome.

Unmarked off-topic materials, binaries, advertising (spam),
excessive posting, cancel attacks, virus infected binaries,
html-encoded postings, and abusive cross-postings are prohibited. All
posts (messages) must be in plain text only and be human-readable. NO FANFIC PLEASE.

—————————————–

SECTION 3:  UPCOMING EPISODES:

The seventh season of Gilmore Girls premieres on Tuesday, September 26th, 2006 in its regular timeslot of 8pm on your local CW station.  Please check www.thecw.com to find out which station in your area carries its programming.

Episode # — Title (writer/director) — airdate

7.01 — The Long Morrow (Rosenthal/TBA) — 9-26-06

NOTE:  I will not post plot summaries of each episode to this list
from my DVR’s programming Guide or TV Guide or elsewhere to this FAQ because, of course, they’re spoilers.

RERUNS:

Past seasons of Gilmore Girls are in constant rotation on the basic
cable channel ABC Family.  As of this writing, past episodes air,
mostly in story order, at 5pm ET/4pm CT, Monday through Friday and are repeated the next weekday morning at 11am ET/10am CT. 

On occasion, ABC Family airs marathons of several popular,
non-story-consecutive episodes in a row on a Saturday or Sunday and
sometimes the channel will even pre-empt the regular story schedule on weekdays for a random theme-week.  Although some of these theme-weeks are easy to figure out (holidays, seasons, etc.), the reasons for having them smack-dab in the middle of a cycle or even a season of the show are often more technical and obscure —  such as, say, to line up a rerun of the pilot to start with the new season’s premiere or even to line up a rerun of the previous season’s premiere with the new season’s premiere.  (Both and other rerun patterns have been practiced by ABC Family and other channels/networks for Gg and virtually every other show).  For that reason, it’s pointless to constantly update ABC Family’s rerun schedule here, but, fortunately, there’s a nifty website that does that anyway, which can be found at:

http://www.tv-now.com/stars/laureng.html

Actually, that’s the link that lists Lauren Graham’s appearances
across the TV Dial for the next month, so you can find out not just
where Gg is at in ABC Family’s rerun schedule, but also, reruns of Bad
Santa, Seeing Other People and other movies that Lauren has starred
in.  You’ll also find details on how to search by other actors names
and do other types of searches for programming as well.  (NOTE:  I am
unaffiliated with this website.  Honest!  It’s just too darn useful not to mention here.)

SECTION 5:  FAQs:
(Updated information is marked NEW)

FAQ #1 — GENERAL INFORMATION

Q: How do I write to the cast?
A: Person’s Name
c/o Gilmore Girls
Warner Bros.
4000 Warner Blvd.
Building 2222
Burbank, CA 91522

Q: Where do they shoot the episodes?
A: Warner Bros. Studio located in Burbank, CA. Chilton is actually St.
Mary’s College in Los Angeles, CA. 

Warner Bros. Studio, while a working studio, does give guided
daily tours to the public.  Since downtown Stars Hollow is primarily
exteriors, you’re likely to see a lot of it on the tours unless
they’re filming on it.  (UPDATE, thanks to a flyer that the WB Studio
Store handed out at Comic-Con in San Diego:)  Tour information can be
found at www.wbstudiotour.com or you can phone them directly at
1-818-972-8687 for information on booking a tour.

Q:  Okay, so if they shoot the show in Burbank, why does Stars
Hollow/Luke’s Diner/everything else  look so different in the pilot
than it does in the rest of the series?

A:  The pilot and *only* the pilot was shot in Canada to save
on costs.  When the show was picked up as a series, creator/showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino insisted on moving the show to the Warner Studio lot.  You might have seen the original, Canadian Stars Hollow in an episode of the syndicated superhero series Mutant X — and about 3-4 episodes later, you would’ve seen Gg’s own wacky Canuck, David Sutcliffe guest-starring.  Bonus points to the first person to provide the episode titles for 1) the episode in which the MX team visits the town that we know as Stars Hollow and 2) the episode of MX in which Sutcliffe guest-starred. 

Q: What is the theme song for the show?
A:  Where You Lead I Will Follow by Carole King, who occasionally
 guest stars on Gg as Sophie Bloom, the owner of the music store.  The
version used on the show is sung by Carole King and her daughter,
Louise Goffin, and is included on the show’s soundtrack album, “Our
Little Corner of the World: Music From ‘Gilmore Girls.'”  Released by
Rhino Records in 2002.  The original version was on King’s album
“Tapestry.” (I don’t have current publication data for it.)

Q: Where can I find the episode titles?
A: Episode titles will be posted at the bottom of the FAQ.  I also
recommend visiting one of the Gilmore Girls links posted below.

Q:  Hey!  I’ve seen a lot of Gilmore actors on Without a Trace and
Cold Case lately, what gives?
A:  Gilmore Girls, Without a Trace and Cold Case are all produced by
Warner Brothers (as is ER), which probably makes it easier to “pass”
the actors around from show to show, to schedule appearances on the
latter shows around their work on Gg, etc.   Likewise, since they all
shoot on the same lot, you’re likely to find the series sharing sets
and exteriors from time to time — I spotted the street that Sookie’s
house is located on in a recent repeat of Without A Trace and Gg
itself has borrowed ER’s hospital sets on occasion.

Q: Where can I find more info on the actors?
A: Click the Google link to Gilmore Girls for fan pages, official
websites and IMdb links:

FAQ #2 —  FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE STORY:

(NOTE:  THE VIEWS IN THIS SECTION REFLECT THE OPINIONS OF THE CURRENT FAQ-KEEPER, Rob Jensen.  Please think of these questions *and* answers as thread-starters rather than attempts to have the final word/deliver the final word from on high.  Except for the one about Mr. Kim, which we’re all kinda tired of answering.  😉  )

Q:  Where is Mr. Kim?
A:  He’s Maris to Mrs. Kim’s Niles.  (ie:  While we’ve never seen him,
he’s been mentioned within the series at least a couple of times as
existing.  In the present tense.  But not recently.)

Q.  How can Lorelai and Rory eat so much junkfood and yet never put on any weight?
A:  It’s called The Lorelai Paradox.  (Bonus points for whoever names
the episode in which it’s contained and/or the exact line(s) of
dialogue that explain it.  David Milligan is disqualified from this
non-contest no matter how much he pouts due to the fact that he keeps transcripts at his site.  8^p.  And remember, like on “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” the points don’t matter.)

Q:  How old was Lorelai when she ran away from the Gilmore Mansion?
A:   Lorelai was about 17 or 18 years old when she ran away.  We know
from s1’s “Rory’s Two Birthday Parties” that Rory was born in
early-to-mid-October of 1984.  We also know from the mid-season 3
episode “Happy Birthday Baby” that Lorelai’s birthday is in
early-to-mid-Spring.  Since the show states repeatedly in no uncertain
terms that Lorelai was 16 when Rory was born and since we can safely
say that Rory was a full-term-ish baby (plus or minus a week), then 1)
Lorelai *had* to have been born in 1968 and Rory was conceived
somewhere between late-December 1983 and mid-January 1984.  My
favorite suspected dates:  Christmas 1983 and New Years’ 1984, for the obvious reasons.

Also, according a remark by Emily just before she discovers Lorelai’s
farewell letter in the last flashback of DE&R, she had been tripping
over Rory’s stroller for about a year, plus or minus a few months.
This reference *strongly* indicates that Lorelai ran away from the
Mansion with Rory when Rory was about a year old, which would put
Lorelai either close to 18 or just past 18 when she ran away.  It’s
even possible that Lorelai ran away on or about her 18th birthday, in
which case, Emily and Richard would have few, if any, legal
justifications to pursue her since she, of course, would be considered
an adult on her 18th birthday.  Even the most conservative estimates
of Lorelai’s age make it highly unlikely that Lor was still 16 when
she ran away from the mansion.

(Special thanks to Gordon Mulcaster for providing episode citations
for the above entry.)

Q:  Did Lorelai and Christopher . . .?
A: . . . have sex in between scenes at the end of Partings, the
controversial sixth-season finale?  Yes, they did.  Stop hoping that
it was a cop-out dream sequence.  IMO, the story was a brilliant
depiction of a lead character following up an heroic breakthrough
(standing up to Luke, speaking her mind absent all defense mechanisms, masks and pretenses and finally walking out on him) with a horrible mistake (sleeping with Christopher after she admitted to her therapist that she doesn’t love him).  I applaud Amy and Dan’s ingenious ability to so brilliantly show the thrill of agony and the victory of defeat (hee) in less than ten minutes time and yet still not depict a hapless skier crashing into large man-made objects.

Q:  What genre is Gilmore Girls?
A:  The question is probably better asked as “What *genres* are
Gilmore Girls?” Gilmore Girls is a serialized narrative most commonly
referred to as a Dramedy — a hybrid of both the Comedy and Drama
genres, because it has characteristics of both in arguably similar
proportions.  Other examples of the Dramedy genre include (but are not even remotely limited to) Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Everwood, Charmed, Joan of Arcadia, MASH and Sports Night.  Dramedies often (but not always) include a high romantic comedy quotient that can easily be mistaken for (or degenerate into) soap opera.  The movies of James L. Brooks — Broadcast News, As Good As It Gets, and, most significantly for the purposes of comparison to Gg, the Oscar-winning classic Terms of Endearment — are Dramedies that have mined similar themes and motifs and have been just as polarizing due to their hybrid natures and their tendencies to deliver endings that are deliberately, for lack of a more concise term, less-than-fairy-tale-happy.  One genre
that Gg has never been (so far) is Soap Opera.

LORELAI:  “What do we want — a comedy, a tragedy?  Or a tragedy that makes us laugh?” 

That’s Amy Sherman-Palladino speaking through Lorelai’s rant about
“Final Destination 3,” from episode 6.17 –“I’m OK, You’re OK.”   On
the surface, Lorelai is complaining about the movie franchise’s lack
of a villain, but metatextually,  Sherman-Palladino is revealing
through Lorelai the actual genre of, well, at *least* s6 of Gilmore
Girls itself — which would be Tragicomedy, a type of Dramedy.

FAQ #3 — SPOILERS AND SPOILER SPACE:  WHY & HOW THEY’RE USED

Q: What does ‘Spoiler’ mean and why is it required?
A: Spoiler is a term referring to critical information about the
story that some fans do not want to know ahead of time under
any circumstances, such as what happens at the very end of the
episode.  (For example:  “Rosebud is a sled.” is a spoiler for the
movie Citizen Kane — and sorry to have blown it for you if you didn’t
already know.)  Due to time zone differences in the US or more
personal reasons, some viewers who like to post to Usenet may not have seen the  episode yet and they wouldn’t want to read what happens before they’ve had a chance to watch it themselves.   Since it is unfair (not to mention, unrealistic) to expect these viewers to stay
off Usenet until they’ve seen the given new episode of any series, the
“Spoiler” tag (keyword) is used in the subject line as  a courtesy to
those fans when you want to discuss a new episode.

When you post a new message, discussing events in a new episode, the
SPOILER tag is most commonly seen in two different ways:

1)  Use the word ‘SPOILER’ first, in all caps, then the episode title
in the Header/Subject line. In the body of the message, start with
SPOILER again, then place at least 15-20 lines before typing your
text.  As in:

Header/Subject:  SPOILERS:  Gg 6.22 — Partings

or

2) Use the episode title first followed by SPOILER in all caps, as in:

Header/Subject:  Gg 6.22 — Lorelai and Luke? (SPOILERS)

Then, within the body of the message SPOILER SPACE (aka Spoiler
Protection) should also be added when discussing episodes of the
current broadcast season.  As in:
Body:  Beginning of post.  Non-spoilery commenting followed by . . .

 SPOILER SPACE!
>
(about half a page or more of hard-return space)
>
>
>
Yadayadayada. Discuss the episode, etc, in the body of your post.
yadayadayada.  End of post.

Also, please try not to give away a complete Spoiler as the
Header/Subject of your new thread.  Using the “Rosebud is a Sled”
example, you should avoid using these kinds of titles for your
thread/post until 3-4 weeks after an episode has aired for the first
time:

“Rosebud Is a Sled?!”
“What?  A Sled?! I Thought Rosebud Was Marion Davies’ Va-Jay-Jay!!!”
“Could Rosebud Symbolize More Than Just a Sled?”

Alternate Versions That Don’t Reveal the Full Version could be used
anytime as follows (and always including a SPOILER tag):

“Rosebud is a —-?!”
“Marion Davies’ Va-Jay-Jay and Citizen Hearst’s Overactive
Imagination”
“Could Rosebud Symbolize More than Just a —-?”

Got it?  Okay.   Keep this in mind when you’re posting to the Lost or
24 newsgroups, too.

SECTION 6:  ABBREVIATION GUIDE:
A list of common abbreviations that you might see used on atgg (that’s
“alt.tv.gilmore-girls” — see, one abbreviation down already!).

I.  ACTOR/CHARACTER NAMES — most are self-evident:

AB — Alexis Bledel
KB — Kelly Bishop
LG — Lauren Graham (note:  when used, LG generally does NOT refer to Lorelai Gilmore)
Lor — Lorelai
SP — Scott Patterson

II.  GENERAL USAGE

FND — Friday Night Dinners
MB or MBs — Message Boards
s# — season # (also s#.# = season #, episode #)
TwoP — Television Without Pity, the snarksite

Gg or GG — Gilmore Girls.  Both abbreviations are correct.  The “Gg”
version is derived from the title as presented as the show’s logo in
the opening credits, “Gilmore girls.”  I use the Gg abbreviation
because GG is most commonly used as an abbreviation for the Golden
Globes Awards on Awards-discussion websites such as GoldDerby.com,
where discussing LG’s chances of getting a GG for GG might be a little
bit too efficient.

III.  EPISODE ABBREVIATIONS — Some pivotal episodes are referred to so often in posts not just on atgg, but on Gg MBs everywhere, that, like Buffy’s OMWF (“Once More, With Feeling,” the musical episode), they’re often referred to by these abbreviations without further explanation:

abbreviation — episode # — episode title

AHINAH — 5.22 — A House Is Not A Home
DE&R/DEAR — 3.13 — Dear Emily & Richard
LWFTWT — 4.21 — Last Week Fights, This Week Tights
TKBNO — 4.09 — Ted Koppel’s Big Night Out
WBB — 5.13 — Wedding Bell Blues (100th episode)
WoQM — 5.11 — Women of Questionable Morals
WitS/WITS — 5.03 — Written in the Stars

And my submissions for two new abbreviations:

R&R — 4.22 — Raincoats and Recipes
T3B — 4.18 — Tick . . . Tick . . . Tick . . . Boom!

(Let’s start a trend, especially in the case of T3B, which has
suffered from an interesting array of not-really-useful abbreviations
as it is.)
