I LOVE Gilmore Girls - came late to the show through repeats and bought all the dvd's - and will love this show.
Good writing, acting and style. Finally.
Wow! That is my main comment about "bunheads" as when I heard it was GG's magician ms Palladino...couldn't wait. I think it is super, yes, I have been totally lacking Gilmore caffeine rapid dialog,and to see Kelly Bishop during the first five minutes told me this is a door to open with crossed fingers.
But, like "Fran" I too think Alan Ruck is a great male lead and bummed if his future is limited. Realize without him "fanny" and "michelle" will have to bond but he could give a good male spin on this ballet journey.
All in all, I still want to watch despite "Hubbell" (honor the character Redford played in "the way we were"?) --here or there...Palladino is back...Gilmore or Flowers, the name may be different, but the talent remains the same!!!!
Get a real dancer or at least an actress that has the body of a dancer.
I am somewhere up in the air about the show. Not that it is not enjoyable - because it is. And it is not that it does not have potential - because it has. I am somewhere undecided on the question: Is it possibly too much like Gilmore Girls?
The question is actually based on another one: Do I just see so much Gilmore Girls in this show because I knew beforehand that it is Amy Sherman-Palladinos new "child" or are there just really so many similarities that the comparison was unavoidable? Now, I loved Gilmore Girls and I truly miss it - so similarity is not a bad thing per se. The tempo and witty reparte are Lorelai-esque and even the relationship between Michelle and Fanny are in some instances so very much like Lorelai and Emily. Kelly Bishop is awesome (pretty much in every character you throw at her). And seeing Alex Borstein was yet another reason to be sentimental about Gilmore Girls. Maybe the show just makes me realize once again, how much I miss GG. Who knows? Anyways, you can be sure I am going to watch the next episodes aswell.
The pilot is on Itunes for free now.
I loved it right up until the last two minutes. -------- SPOILER ALERT -------- Is Hubble really dead??? Why would they kill off the adorable, nutty husband who can actually stand up to his mother??? I was already in love with him and SO looking forward to her letting him win her over. I'm sure it will still be a lovely show and they've got a bigger picture in mind, but I think they missed out on something by getting rid of a truly original male character in the first episode.
I'm so mad i wanted to watch this show and I forgot that it was coming on tonight! Does anyone know if the pilot is gonna repeat??
I like it Carissa, I'm gonna use it too!
I loved it! Love the trademark Palladino language, and the cross-generational appeal for the ABC Family audience. I love your idea of Truly as her best friend eventually, because Stacey Oristano was amazing on FNL and I thought she was the funniest part of the pilot.
As a Gilmore Girls fan I was thinking that nothing could fill the void that show has left in me, but I was very happily surprised with this pilot. My mother and I are very picky in the shows we watch, but this was a breath of fresh air, especially after watching The Secret Life Of The American Teenager. I'm going to give this show a well deserved chance.
