jumping the proverbial shark with the gilmore girls

Did you vote yesterday? Yes, no? Whatever. What's done is done and now we have to move on to more pressing issues, such as how bad the new season of "Gilmore Girls" is. How Amy Sherman-Palladino still has her name attached to the credits (granted it's as creator and executive producer by title only), I'll never understand.

The season started off well-enough, but as we delve deeper into Lorelai and Christopher's relationship, the show is coming off more stale. What was great about the show before were the off-center secondary characters. Anchors such as Lane, Jackson, Taylor, Kirk , Miss Patty and even Luke have all but a few minutes of screentime.

Last night's episode was completely boring as it centered around Lorelai and Christopher's getaway to Yale's Parents Weekend. Most of the episode was about Christopher sulking about how he missed out on Rory's life. Yo, asshole, that's what you get for steppin'. I can't feel sorry for some dude who pretty much as an infinite amount of cash, good looks and almost no redeemable qualities. In fact, the best part of the show was Luke's attempt to date again, as well as his blossoming relationship with his freshly discovered daughter. Fuck the rest. Oh, by the way, there were spoilers.

Anyway, for November sweeps, "Gilmore Girls" is pulling out all the stops with their advertised "Proposal" episode, in which Christopher asks Lorelai to marry him yet again and she'll probably say yes because -- thus far into this season -- she's an idiot.

I can't believe I've spent this much internet space writing about a fictional television show. Joke's on me, I guess. Do something productive like listening to EPMD's "Strictly Business."
