DVD Review - Gilmore Girls The Complete Second Season

After becoming addictive to watching reruns on ABC Family and Soap.net, I stumbled upon the Gilmore Girls season one and two bundled together for under twenty dollars at a Target Store. After quickly going through the first season, a few days later I started watching the second season. A week went by and I had finished watching it. I realized that the series was aimed for a female audience, but for some reason it clicked with me, mostly because I caught Lorelai and Rory constantly drinking coffee, and I have always liked Lauren Graham ever since I saw her in Bad Santa.

Season 2 picks up where the first season finale ended, with Lorelai finally saying "yes" to Max's marriage proposal and Rory starts up her relationship with Dean again. I found it odd that the first few episodes are set during the summer, as in most TV series the start of season takes place three months later, where the kids are going back to school. The first three episodes involve planning for the upcoming wedding, which never really happens as Lorelai calls it off. The following episode has Rory and her on a road trip to visit Harvard; well it was more like crashing and is my favorite episode now. Lorelai's love life is ignored through most of the season besides from a few scenes with Rory's father who ends up going nowhere. Rory's love life is the man focus as she is torn between her sweetheart Dean and Luke's troubled nephew Jess.

 Bonus Materials included: A Film by Kirk; International Success: How Other Countries Welcome the Girls; Gilmore Goodies & Gossip - A-Tisket, A-Tasket; Who Wants to Argue?; and Unaired Scenes.

Between the smart dialogue, quirky characters, and the coffee drinking, I absolutely love this show, and I regret never watching it during its original run. Luke (the owner of Luke's Diner) is the most relatable character for me. From his casual style, ruddiness/crankiness, and attitude, all in which reminds me of myself, except for his dislike of coffee. Or course I like Lorelai for her smart-ass attitude and Rory's love of books. What I didn't care for was the character Jess, who is just an annoying troublemaker. I was laughing out loud when Luke shoved Jess into the lake.

Overall, I liked the second season as much as the first.
