  • Like watching a different show...just some RIDICULOUS moments.

    This episode was marginally better than the ones that preceded it - mainly because of Rory and Logan. I thought their story line was interesting, well written and well acted. It was good to see a bit of conflict but also to see them resolve it. Luke's character is completely pointless, there is no Luke without Lorelai. His whole charm revolved around how the two of them interacted, him on his own (or with April) just does not produce strong enough drama. I actually quite liked how when he met up with Lorelai he happened to see her wedding ring and discover she was married. It was a nice subtle moment, unlike so much of what is going on this season! However I thought the way it built up to Luke calling her was PATHETIC. Things had been extremely awkward between the two of them and out of the blue he calls her up and they are so casual and breezy. He didn't even seem that desperate or stressed when he phoned her - it just came across so unrealistic - bad acting, bad directing...just bad all round.

    Lorelai's character has just changed out of all recognition. Christopher is acting like a complete thoughtless idiot, yet she seems to be bowled over by his 'charms'. The new creative team are making a complete mess of it. The way the supporting characters, the different story lines, the comedy and the drama were interwoven before was so subtle you didn't realise how good it was. Now it is not being done so skillfully it sticks out like a sore thumb and seems like a complete botch job.
