Looks like this season very well may be the last for The Gilmore Girls. TV Guide is reporting today that "talks to bring the show back for an eighth season have stalled, and, according to several sources, there's little hope for a turnaround."
I'm not sure how I feel about that. I used to love the show – the first season, and possibly the second, will always stand as some of the best television I've ever watched – but the last few seasons have kind of gone off the rails. I confess I don't even really tune in much anymore.
But I'm still going to miss those Gilmore Girls. I think partly it’s that I just like the idea that a show like this exists. What other show focuses so closely and so well on mother-daughter relationships? Where else is CNN's Christiane Amanpour considered a big guest-star? Where else can you find so many attractive, intelligent, and yet still relatable women? And did I mention Lauren Graham? Yeah, that's enough of a reason to watch right there.
Somebody better give her another show soon!
