A while back I entered into a giveaway on a blog and I won one of the prizes which was a $20 gift card from Walmart. I had completely forgotten about it until I received it several months later. I wasn't for sure what I was going to use the card for. Late one night, I surfed Walmart.com and found the sixth season of Gilmore Girls for fewer than twenty dollars. Of course I had to order it. I have been watching Gilmore Girls ever since I stumbled upon it on the late Soap.net channel earlier this year, but I watch it every weekday morning (if there isn't some kind of marathon) on ABC Family, which had just started airing the sixth season. I received the DVD set very quickly and just like season one and two (that I own on DVD); I flew right through each episode, taking in every bit of the Gilmore Wisdom.
The episodes on season six are:
Episode 1: New and Improved Lorelai (9/13/05)
Episode 2: Fight Face (09/20/05)
Episode 3: The UnGraduate (09/27/05)
Episode 4: Always a Godmother, Never a God (10/4/05)
Episode 5: We've Got Magic to Do (10/11/05)
Episode 6: Welcome to the Dollhouse (10/18/05)
Episode 7: Twenty-One Is the Loneliest Number (10/25/05)
Episode 8: Let Me Hear Your Balalaikas Ringing Out (11/8/05)
Episode 9: The Prodigal Daughter Returns (11/15/05)
Episode 10: He's Slippin' 'Em Bread ... Dig? (11/22/05)
Episode 11: The Perfect Dress (1/10/06)
Episode 12: Just Like Gwen and Gavin (1/17/06)
Episode 13: Friday Night's Alright for Fighting (1/31/06)
Episode 14: You've Been Gilmored (2/7/06)
Episode 15: A Vineyard Valentine (2/14/06)

Episode 19: I Get A Sidekick Out of You (4/18/06)
Episode 20: Super Cool Party People (4/25/06)
Episode 21: Driving Miss Gilmore (5/2/06)
Episode 22: Partings (5/9/06)
There is a lot of emotional baggage that occurs through the sixth season as Lorelai and Rory spend nine episodes apart. During these episodes Lorelai gets engaged to Luke (she is the one who asked), she gets a dog named Paul Anka, and has her house remodeled. Everything changes at the end of episode nine as Rory returns home and Luke finds outs that he has a daughter named April. Unfortunately Lorelai doesn't make it down the aisle, but Rory's best friend, Lane, marries her band mate, Zach.
Season six has a lot things going on in Star Hollows. I felt for Luke as he adjusted to being a father, but he had to push Lorelai away in the process. Did Lorelai overreact about all the April drama? Not really. All she wanted was to be part of April's life as she was going to be her step-mother. I didn't care for the last scene of the season with Lorelai in bed with you-know-who. Overall, I had a blast watching each coffee addicted episode.
