7 ways 'Gilmore Girls' got it women right

Article from The Daily Dot about the awesomeness that is Gilmore Girls

Sadly, I will admit I put off watching the show for a long time because I assumed it was a "girly" show. I regret mocking my college professor who swore to me that I would like it, rolling my eyes that he thought I would like a show like that when I was a Buffy fan. I didn't know that TV knew how to many shows with strong women unless those women were physically kicking butt (or maybe I didn't know what an emotionally strong woman was unless she was kicking butt?).

What about you? Did you watch GG when it first aired or catch it later or is this your first time? What made you start watching? What clicks with you the most?

SIDENOTE: isn't it amazing that Alexis Bledel actually LOOKS 16 while playing 16? I mean, she was barely a teen anymore when the show started in 2000 (she would have been 19) but her features are so young. I've looked at shows I watched as a kid with "teen" characters and it's hilarious to see them and say "LOL NOPE! THEY ARE NOT TEENS!". Actually, I think whoever did the initial casting of those teen characters should have gotten an award because they not only got fantastic actors, but actors that looked the part.
