Gilmore Girls just isn't realistic enough. Nobody talks that fast that wittily. Family Guy once did a parody of Gilmore Girls that essentially explains everything I don't like about it.
Fair enough. The fast, smart talking thing is the reason I liked Sports Night and West Wing, though, too. To each his own.
I don't care if it isn't realistic. I wish it were realistic and that's enough.
First of all, I only once watched Gilmore Girls for about 5 minutes and had to turn it off because my penis was turning inside out.... but from what I watched, I can see where you think it's witty and I've heard the same from other people, but I really don't think it stands up to most of the great shows on TV; network, cable or otherwise.
As I said, Everybody Hates Chris is ingenious. For comedy, I've still got Earl, The Office and reruns of Curb Your Enthusiasm on HBO, not to mention that fact that I watch at least an hour of Seinfeld reruns a night... a show which I've seen every episode at least 3-30 times.
I'm obsessed with Law & Order: Criminal Intent, and SVU is fun to watch too, if not to just stare at Mariska Hargitay's boobs. I guess that's kind of ironic given the subject matter of the show, but hey, at least Ice-T is kickin' it.
Then of course you've got House, The Shield, 24, Lost, and Without A Trace.
I'd say they all beat Gilmore Girls.
