Welcome to Stars Hollow! :D

Really enjoying the rewatch. The dialogue is as good as ever and I really love Luke being more of a wanker than ever in the first episode. He's probably the funniest bit of the whole show. Also, was Sookie always such a spazz? I don't remember that. Michel is amazing. I love his misanthropy. Rory's rather annoying in the first episode. Lorelai's doing everything for her and she's pouting over a guy? I know she's meant to be 15, but holy crap have a brain, child. Love Mr and Mrs Gilmore as always. Dean needs to fix his horrid fringe. Also, I swear Drella has a different name later on. Like Kirk/Mick.

I think Lorelai, Luke and Michel are my new favourite characters. Used to be Rory but I think growing up has changed that a bit. She truly acts her age.

Also, I now need coffee.

I feel like both Sookie and Rory got the most tweaked between the pilot and the actual start of the series. I mean, Sookie was too over the top in her accident-prone-ness!

My friend and I were talking in the car today how you immediately start rooting for Luke/Lorelai from the first episode, which doesn't usually happen with me. But from that first snarkfest, you know they could totally take care of each other.

I so did not remember Lorelai asking Rory if she thought Luke was cute, and then Luke getting all bothered about the guy asking her out. They really did have that stuff hinted from the start. No wonder so many people were rooting for them.

Sookie from the pilot and Sookie later on is such a difference! I'm glad they toned it down a bit. And the Kirk thing is a bit weird because he's such a presence later on but I guess that's how pilots work...

I always love to see the early days of Luke/Lorelai and see how much there already was from the beginning!

I think it's funny how some things from the pilot really stuck, and others did a complete 180. Like Luke clearly adores Lorelai from minute one, so that totally makes sense later. But Kirk being Mick and then Kirk not knowing Patty but then having grown up in Stars Hollow. I feel like at times the writers are great with character development and at other times really crap.

They're so cute!
