Friday Five: Tubular

Friday, June 26, 2020
This week's Friday Five:
  1. What's your least favourite episode of your favourite television program? Gilmore Girls, Season 7, Episode 8. I think I was annoyed with everyone in that episode. Yes, even Lorelai.

  2. Across its series run, in what way did a favourite television program get worse? I think between Season 6 and 7 of Gilmore Girls. The characters became too unrelatable, the storyline got too ridiculous, the choices made were too questionable, and a lot of relationships seemed too forced.

  3. Among television programs you like very much, which ended far too soon? Veronica Mars. It was honestly one of the best-written television shows, and it was cut tragically short.

  4. Among television programs you like very much, which dragged on for too long? As much as it pains me to say it because it's my favourite television show, Gilmore Girls. It should've ended at Season 6. Season 7 felt so forced and lost a lot of the wit and banter that was such a joy to watch in previous seasons. On top of that, I'd also add all the shows I stopped watching halfway through the series: Orange is the New Black, How I Met Your Mother, Grey's Anatomy, Pretty Little Liars, Riverdale, The Vampire Diaries, Glee, Gossip Girl, Heroes, The Big Bang Theory, Once Upon a Time, Weeds, True Blood, Desperate Housewives. I'm sure there's more I'm missing.

  5. What are some lines of dialogue you love from a favourite television program? Just some faves from Gilmore Girls over the years:

    "People are particularly stupid today. I can't talk to anymore of them." — Michel
    "I can be flexible, as long as everything is exactly the way I want it." — Lorelai
    "You're breaking up! The house is going through a tunnel!" — Lorelai
    "Oy, with the poodles already!" — Lorelai
    "It's all any of us wants, to find a nice person to hang out with 'til we drop dead." — Lorelai
    "You jump, I jump, Jack!" — Rory
    "I am attracted to pie, but I do not feel the need to date pie." — Lorelai
    "You have to sleep, it’s what keeps you pretty." — Lorelai
    "No men. Just lots and lots of Chinese food." — Paris
    "And if eating cake is wrong, I don’t want to be right." — Lorelai
    "Life's short. Talk fast." — Lorelai
    "Coffee, please, and a shot of cynicism." — Lorelai
