Aww good.  We all love Sookie.

And do you know WHY we all love Sookie?  Because she's the biggest Java Junkie on the show, that's why!  (What subtle hint?)

Post by: susielove on October 19, 2005, 08:01:15 am
I read somewhere that Melissa McCarthy got married recently but I can't remember to who, can any one tell me?



Title: Re: Sookie / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation Thread
Post by: gilmorewannabe on October 19, 2005, 12:38:22 pm
She married another actor but I don't remember his name and I already threw out my People from last week.  They had been together for like 8 years so she said she already felt married anyways.

Post by: oywithpoodles on October 19, 2005, 01:31:05 pm
Sorry, I can't help you with that one, but I just wanted to chime in and say I love this actress, and it's great to see a full figured woman on a hit show who also has a romantic relationship with a good looking guy.   ::)

Title: Re: Sookie / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation Thread

Thanks, Lindsay! I saw in the imdb that he was also in a GG episode.


Title: Re: Sookie / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation Thread
Post by: warmblanket on October 20, 2005, 12:22:53 am
He was Fran's lawyer.

:D For Melissa on the wedding

Anyone else find it strange that she didn't jump all over Luke when he said he wasn't a fan of the squash? :P

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
4 slices part skim mozzarella cheese

According to imdb.com, he guest starred on the episode, "Say Goodnight, Gracie".

By the looks of it, he has a recurring role on Joey.

Post by: White Onyx on November 11, 2005, 02:21:21 pm
There also is a thread about Sookie on the cast board. If you post on that thread more people who also love her will read your post, cause the ORG is kinda orinized that way. Every character has his/her own thread. That way you get to talk to people who love the same character much faster and easier and it won't cluder up the board when the mods close your thread.   


Title: Re: Sookie St. James / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation Thread
Post by: FanaticalGilmore on November 11, 2005, 02:43:23 pm
I love the character of Sookie!  She's absolutely beautiful, funny and teriffic!
When I cook, I try to imagine what Sookie would do - lol.
If ever there was a chance to play a character on GG's, I would love to be a long lost best-friend to Loralei and Sookie ;)

Post by: Erin on November 14, 2005, 08:34:18 pm
I love Sookie, too!  She just lights up every scene she's in, IMO.  I was watching some of season one over the weekend, and in the extras there's a clip of the pilot with Alex Borstein (who used to play Drella).  It was so weird seeing someone else as Sookie, and it just wasn't the same.  I love Melissa McCarthy, and I second whomever said that it's great to see a full-figured woman as a regular character on a popular show. She's fabulous!


Title: Re: Sookie St. James / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation Thread
Post by: Agent_A on November 14, 2005, 10:33:46 pm
All I've got to say is Alex Borstein ain't got nothing on Melissa McCarthy.


Title: Re: Sookie St. James / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation Thread
Post by: coffeegilmoregirl on November 15, 2005, 06:57:53 am
I think everyone wants to have a friend like Sookie. She is supportive, funny,
really likable, and has been a great character on the show from the start.

omgosh i love sookie, she is such a adorable character! She is soo pretty nd she is such a good best friend! Especially in the last episode when she nd Lorelai were talking in the dragonfly kitchen.
Lorelai: Sookie, i am not really talking about pots nd pans
Sookie: THEN what are yoo talking about ? her facial expression are always soo funny.  :D

Post by: Krisleigh on November 18, 2005, 12:21:39 pm
They need to give her more screen time, as they also need to do with Lane, Paris and Michel. Maybe they should drop Logan and give those four all his screentime.

That... would work.


Title: Re: Sookie St. James / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation Thread
Post by: Liz on November 22, 2005, 08:00:49 pm
I wish the general public could vote for who gets an Emmy because Melissa McCarthy would get my vote. She's so incredibly talented.
GG isn't successful purely because of Lauren & Alexis (although you couldn't have the show obviously without them) but it's definitely an ensemble and I wish the supporting characters were shown more. The only supporting character I think that gets the screentime she deserves is Kelly Bishop and she definitely proves that she can make a scene that much better.

I agree btw, Krisleigh, I wouldn't shed ...well.. ANY tears should Logan disappear.   :P


Title: Re: Sookie St. James / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation Thread
Post by: Erin on November 22, 2005, 08:22:25 pm
I wouldn't be shedding any tears for Logan, either, especially if that meant more of Sookie and Paris.  I loved Sookie's scene when she found out Rory and Lorelai made up.  It was one of the better moments in the episode.  Melissa McCarthy just makes me smile.

Sookie is my favourite character (non-Gilmore) on the show.

Post by: laurenfan on November 24, 2005, 11:28:31 pm
I Love Sookie/Melissa She is so halarious on and off the show.
I loved Sookie too in the scene when she saw Rory for the first time in a while she was so cute.
I thought it felt like the old days when sookie cooked for them and Rory always came into the kitchen for a snack of some kind.


Title: Re: Sookie St. James / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation Thread
Post by: Kukalaka on November 25, 2005, 12:13:54 am
I loved Sookie too in the scene when she saw Rory for the first time in.
Yeah, I loved that scene too with stuff flying around. :D That was so Sookie.

I thought it felt like the old days when sookie cooked for them and Rory always came into the kitchen for a snack of some kind.
Also agree here, because I saw season 1 in the last week, and I loved when they were all in the kitchen.


Title: Re: Sookie St. James / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation Thread
Post by: Krisleigh on November 25, 2005, 03:15:38 am
Hehe. I love love love love love love love Melissa. She's so beautiful and she breaks the stereotype that heavier women are trashy or messy that Hollywood (And Roseanne) has set.

Plus, she's funny and has awesome comedic ability. Sookie seems like she could be a real person, and I credit a lot of that to Miss McCarthy.

Title: Re: Sookie St. James / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation Thread
Post by: MurphyFan595 on January 13, 2006, 04:31:41 pm

Post by: dancer1012 on January 13, 2006, 07:05:35 pm
Melissa McCarthy has her own Sookieness that she brings to the character that you forget that Sookie was supposed to be another person.  One of my favorite Sookie moments would have to be when they went to the debat at chiltion and Sookie got in the fight with Chris about wether or not she was the best chef ever.


Title: Re: Sookie St. James / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation Thread

Ok, I love Sookie, she is my favorite character in the show but there is one thing she did that I did not agree on and thats when Luke was trying to voice his opinion about the wedding and she wouldn't let him get one word in, that really bugged me!!! like seriously! she may be the BFOTB but shes not the one getting married! I'm sorry!

But I Really Do Love Her, Shes Amazing

I love your Sookie avatar. I thought also about making me one.

Thanks. It took me like 10 seconds. I was re-watching season 5, the first episode and Lorelai calls her Sqiggy and I liked that so I just found a cute/funny picture.

Post by: dani on January 18, 2006, 07:58:38 am
I love Sookie!!!  I can't believe that Alex Borstein was supposedly sposed to play Sookie on the show.  I love Alex Borstien alot, but I'm glad that Melissa got the part, she is so funny as Sookie!!  She's a great actress.


Title: Re: Sookie Appreciation Thread
Post by: Derekuda on January 18, 2006, 09:43:19 am
Aww good.  We all love Sookie.

And do you know WHY we all love Sookie?  Because she's the biggest Java Junkie on the show, that's why!  (What subtle hint?)

Actually, I don't think thats right.  Loreali is the one who is always drinking coffee.  Remember the health spa episode where she almost freaked out at the front desk because there was no coffee and only cucumber water.

Yeah thats what I think! But I do love Sookie (not in a freaky way) and not only cuz she is a Java Junkie! anyway.. I loved her line "Luke! Who am I?" "NO! I am Sookie BFOTB" "Best Friend of the bride!!!"

LMFAO. My soon-to-be step dad was cracking up on that (yes he watches it with my family...lmfao)

Yeah I totally thought that was great too, and a lot of people were saying that she was really annoying in that episode and go you because you are the first person to actually agree with me!

and omgosh, you are lucky! When my dad is in the room while my sister and I are watching it, like last night at dinner, he always annoys me and makes fun of the show.


Title: Re: Sookie St. James / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation Thread
Post by: laurenfan on January 18, 2006, 11:35:04 pm
I love Sookie she is so funny and Loves Luke and Lorelai together which is cute.

I agree she was a tad annoying she took that BFOTB to far,once was enough but she said like
3 or 4 times.


Title: Re: Sookie St. James / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation Thread
Post by: 1giantGGfan on January 18, 2006, 11:44:52 pm
awww I just thought it was funny. It was very "Sookie" of her. She was so excited and that was just cute.


Title: Re: Sookie St. James / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation Thread
Post by: Kukalaka on January 19, 2006, 12:09:04 am
I also thought it funny. Most people find her annoying in many episodes, but I think that Sookie is this way. I like her when she is kind of overreacting and freaking out abou things. :D


Title: Re: Sookie St. James / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation Thread
Post by: gilmore-girl on January 20, 2006, 06:18:00 am
I like Sookie. It kinda sucks that this season seems to be more foucsed on Lorelai, Rory, and Luke more than the others. I mean i know they are the main characters but it would be nice to have a Sookie or Michel storline in there somewhere.


Title: Re: Sookie St. James / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation Thread
Post by: Kukalaka on January 20, 2006, 07:04:37 am
I totally agree. I'd love to see more Sookie and Jackson, and their kids. Hehe, a Michel storyline would also be great.


Title: Re: Sookie St. James / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation Thread
Post by: 1giantGGfan on January 20, 2006, 02:28:28 pm
yeah. they did have the kids' baptism, but it still didn't have very much Sookie stuff.


Title: Re: Sookie St. James / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation Thread
Post by: laurenfan on January 20, 2006, 02:37:01 pm
I love Sookie too she is so halarious,I agree there needs to be more Sookie & Jackson storylines.
I love when Miss Patty, & Babbate have storylines they are fun to watch also.
This season so far has really been focused on Lorelai,Luke and Rory but hopefully they will squeeze some other town's people in there soon and more often.


Title: Re: Sookie St. James / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation Thread
Post by: thelostgilmoregirl on February 14, 2006, 12:49:13 am
I really love sookie.  I was really happy when she married Jackson.  Now that she has 2 children that is even better.  She really deserved to find someone nice.  She is such a cool character and a great best friend to Lorelai.

Post by: 1giantGGfan on March 22, 2006, 04:25:25 pm
Melissa deos such an amazing job playing Sookie, too. I seriously don't think anyone could do better than her. It's weird to think that someone else was going to be Sookie, I'm glad it is Melissa though.

Yeah, we finally got some new Sookie and Lorelai interaction at the inn's kitchen. We haven't seen that in a while and I missed it. It was funny how she told Lorelai what she has done during the wedding party. I especially loved that what you see on the pic.  :D

I really like the character of Sookie.  Sookie is so enthusastic about life and you just feel like she treasures those around her.  I love when they discussed April's party and Bonnie Bell Lipsmackers.  I had those years ago and now my daughters have them.  Thought her line about Jackson so getting under bra that night was hysterical.   ;)

Sookie brings something special to each scene that she is in-whether she is being there for her best friend Lorelai or where she is going overboard in the kitchen.  It is always fun to watch Sookie.

Lorelai: Hey, Sookie.
Sookie: Ah, hi there.
Lorelai: You okay?
Sookie: This tastes good. [pointing to margarita]
Lorelai: Yeah, it looks like they’re deep-frying –
Sookie: Everything.
Lorelai: Ha.
Sookie: Vegetables, mashed potatoes, butter, pickles, salt, a napkin.
Rory: And yet you’re very serene.
Lorelai: Uh, you’re practically floating.
Sookie: Well, you caught me at a good time, ladies. I’ve already gone through the five stages of grieving. Denial, anger. . .I don’t remember these two, but they were served on the rocks with salt! Now, I’m just happily scotched in acceptance. Scotched?. . .
Rory: Ensconced?
Sookie: Ensconced – that’s it! I do believe I heard Phil suggest throwing Junior in.
Lorelai: Junior?
Sookie: His nephew.
Lorelai: Whoa.
Sookie: I chimed in on that one.
Lorelai: What happened over there?
Sookie: Mm, about a half-hour ago they set the lawn on fire.
Lorelai: Ah.
Sookie: But Phil says it’s okay and everything ‘cause it’ll grow back twice as lush. Though that’s what he said when he broke my salad bowl that I brought back from Belgium! That’ll maybe grow back too, huh? [laughs] Phil is a riot. Am I crying or laughing?
Lorelai: Laughing.

She is incredible, I think it's so cool we have the same name!:)  I think my favorite Sookie moment was on the first episode of season 5 when she was so excited for Luke & Lorelai to be together.  I love when she goes and hugs Luke and then when she accosts Lore in the kitchen.  Such good memories!


Title: Sookie Appreciation Thread!
Post by: SatinPaperDoll on September 27, 2006, 02:28:42 pm
Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I haven't seen any Sookie threads around here. I thought I would start one, well, because Sookie is my favorite character and I believe she should be mentioned! Sookie is usually in a great spirit and always helpful, and is willing to help Lorelai w/her current problems. She's also usually lighthearted and kind to everyone around her, and when she's in a bad mood, she always tries to keep upbeat.

If you'd like, please share your favorite Sookie moments here!
Mine is a couple seasons ago when Sookie decided she had all of the sicknesses Rory, Lorelai, and Michel had and she started feeling really bad, and then Lorelai told her that she wasn't feeling that way anymore and Sookie got better very quickly. I think I recalled that correctly! =]

I think Sookie has to be my favorite character on the show! My friends all give me a hard time because my favorite isn't a Gilmore! I don't care though because Sookie just makes me smile!  :)

One of my favorite Sookie moments is the night before she is to get married and she's downstairs in the Inn working on the cake. Lorelai comes down and they start talking about how she feels about getting married! I wish there were a garuntee too, Sookie!!

I think Sookie brings so much life and humor to the show! She's so cute and just makes me feel good!
I know I could NEVER picture anyone else playing Sookie...Melissa is wonderful!!
I must say it was odd watching the special feature on the DVD when they showed the other actress that was to play Sookie...
I am glad that Melissa got the part!

I really miss seeing more of her this season!

(By the way...I would imagine that Sookie choose to keep her last name, as many "modern" brides decide to do lately. She seems the type that would do that, actually. I do wonder what the children's last names would be?)

I would agree, I think I can explain that a little bit.  Since Sookie had an established career at the time they got married it makes sense to me, the critics knew her as Sookie St James, the inn associations knew her as that etc...  I've known people who were established in quite public feilds who don't change their names....yet I really want to know why my optomestrist didn't.  Her name was Joy Johnson I believe and now her last name is Quitberg!  Can you imagine?

Oh and Sookie is one of my favorites too...I think I like that she's a mom and that she puts her family first -no matter what!

Post by: Sooks on November 25, 2006, 05:00:42 pm
MasBYUgal: That makes so much sense! I think that the established career part is a big thing, whether they are in the public eye or not, just being established is key! I think in a town so small too, that would be another reason to keep (or in some cases not keep) your maiden name.

I was a bit upset with Sookie when she and Lorelai were trying to open the Drangonfly and she wasn't there...but then when I started thinking about all that Sookie was going through, I had to stop! That was a lot what she had on her plate at the time! I realize that people have babies every day but some handle the sitaution differently than others. I also think that Sookie just was plain worn out!

She's just go so much personality and spunk and is an all around amazing person! I really wish she were a real person, not a fictional character!! (However, that could be said about all these wonderful Gilmore Girls characters I suppose!) Wouldn't that be so much fun?!

I think that Sookie just tries to make people happy and do what she can do for others! I think she's got a great sense of humor that pulls many people through tough times! I think she's a great listener and gives good advice to others when needed. She's creative and talented! Her little 'quarks' just make her all the better and keep her SOOKIE!!!

I totally agree with both of you.  I think Sookie is awesome.  Also Melissa McCarthy I love her.  Being a bigger woman in hollywood is not easy but she is such an amazing actress I want to be just like her.  I say that because I am an actress too and I am "bigger"


Title: Re: Sookie St. James / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation Thread
Post by: Sooks on November 25, 2006, 05:08:41 pm
Sookie is one of my role models and I adore Melissa McCarthy (she's got a GREAT name to boot! Mine is also Melissa) The whole "bigger" thing is a huge reason I started identifying with Sookie's character when I started watching the show. I thought, if someone can be so happy and make so many other people so happy...and still be a bit "bigger" - then I should be able to be. She's helped me pick up my self esteem more than once - she's helped me feel better about my size (as I seem to keep growing) and my personality! I have always been one to try to make others happy and to give to others, people say I'm funny I just don't realize it, and I wouldn't say that I'm depressed or down on myself...but I believe a lot of that to be true thanks to Sookie's character!

The BEST to you with your adventures in acting thelostiglmoregirl! I hope you are happy in whatever you do! :)

She's not like that anymore.


Title: Re: Sookie St. James / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation Thread
Post by: Sooks on November 25, 2006, 06:56:35 pm
Yes YES!! And she used to do little silly things that would get her into "trouble" sometimes. Like when she threw the towel over her shoulder because she was so excited that Rory got into Chilton, it started on fire. Or when she would knock over a freshly prepared pan of something or spill a hot sauce because she wasn't paying attention! Gotta love Sookie!  ;D

I think she has gotten better. I haven't seen as many band-aids on her fingers and hands lately!
Maybe having children has helped her!

Yup, that's the exact scene I Was thinking of when I wrote that I LIKE how she puts her family first, I hope I can be that good when I have kids!  It's easy to relate to Lorelai's anger in the episode, yet we must understand how tired Sookie was.

I think that Sookie just tries to make people happy and do what she can do for others! I think she's got a great sense of humor that pulls many people through tough times! I think she's a great listener and gives good advice to others when needed. She's creative and talented! Her little 'quarks' just make her all the better and keep her SOOKIE!!!
I love her quirks and the fact that she is always smiling!  I think almost all of us related with her when she jumped, screamed and hugged Luke as soon as she found out that Luke and Lorelai had kissed!  Who didn't scream with her?  Who didn't want to be the one to hug Lorelai?

MasBYUgal I just PM'ed you before coming to see this thread so I introduced myself and all that fun stuff! I feel like such a 'dork' now! haha

I was just watching the episode where Sookie and Jackson are telling Davey to turn the TV down...each taking a turn to shout at him, trying to make sure they are heard over the television noise. Nothing happens and Sookie finally counts down, Lorelai looking at her kind of strange. Just gotta love Sookie! That whole scene reminded me of something that one would see in an 'I Love Lucy' epsidoe or some show during that time. I don't know why but Sookie reminds me of someone who would have really enjoyed growing up during that time maybe.

I really do miss seeing Sookie more during this current season (7)! I hope that they start bringing the others into the mix a bit more again! There's definitely something special about Sookie!

I love Sookie and Jackson and was really disappointed when they didn't show more of their wedding, just of Sookie decorating the cake then of Lorelai and Rory walking down the aisle at the Independence Inn. I think I only saw an actual wedding picture from one of the promo shots. I know the show is called Gilmore Girls, but Sookie and Jackson are good friends of the Lorelai and Rory and I think their wedding deserved some more air time.

I love how bubbly and enthusiastic Sookie always is. And I love her hair, especially when she wears it on pig tails. I normally don't think of pig tails as becoming on a grown woman, but it just fits in so well with Sookie's personality.

I think Melissa McCartney is way underused on the show. They should use her more rather than just as a buffer or an ear for Lorelai. Even a little side storyline in an episode like when Jackson discovered pot growing in his garden and he and Sookie had to smuggle it out in garbage bags and ran into the minister!

Sookie is a great character. She's brought in so much to the show since day one. The first time I saw her in the pilot, I knew she was going to be a memorable character. Not only is she hilarious, she also keeps the faith for Luke and Lorelai. I'm not really sure if she likes the whole Chris/Lorelai marriage. She wants what's best for her best friend (Lorelai) and she knows that Luke is the best for her, not Chris. Sorry!! I'm going into my Java Junkie world again!! But anyway, she's just such a great actress and character on Gilmore Girls.

Post by: Sooks on January 15, 2007, 08:08:02 pm
I must say that I agree about Sookie and Jackson being an incredibly adorable couple...just perfect! I think that they would have a blast with Luke and Lorelai - they did share some good times while Luke and Lorelai were together so that was good!! I loved the pot episode...hilarious! Just as I would imagine such a thing to happen to them! haha They are classic...just amazing together (Jackson and Sookie) I miss seeing them so much! I bet Sookie is a crazy mom...a good one but CRAZY!! haha She's hopefully teaching her little ones to be more careful and not quite so clumsy as she once was!  :o Ya gotta love her!

I am trying to come up with questions for a Sookie trivia game like they have going on over at the Hep Alien thread, and it should be easy because I love her so dearly but maybe I'll have to go to the foodies thread and do a Sookie Jackson trivia game?! What fun!!

Melissa McCarthy is a great person - talented actress! I want to know more about what she's like...how closely she's like Sookie, if at all. I think she's georgous, so beautiful! She's definitely my idol, if I had to say I had one! She's given me strength when I needed it...and she's radient! Just love her! I want to know more about her! I've got that on my 'to do' list for this weekend actually!

I wonder what the role of Sookie would have been like, if she weren't cast? I just can't imagine anyone else in it now!

Melissa McCarthy is an amazing actress! I've loved her on everything I've ever seen her in. To me, Gilmore Girls wouldn't be the same without her playing the part of Sookie. One of the scenes that gets stuck in my head is when Rory wants Rocky Road cookies for Dean and Lorelai and Sookie start singing that crazy song. She's fabulous!!

I think I just imagine Melissa as being Sookie! haha :P I know that's sad but it works for me! I agree with everything that you said (and so well I might add) lalaliz2005!! Melissa and I share names so that drew me to her right away in the first place...but I have come to love her and Sookie so much! I keep forgetting to make another Sookie sig - that's the next one I do, for sure! I adore Sookie! :) Such a great attitude about things, about life! A role model for me in more than one way!

i love sookie, she is great!! there just aren't enough words to describe how great she is not to mention Melissa McCarthy. Melissa is a really wonderful actress and makes sookie..well sookie. I loved the episode where sookie and jackson have the pot and call it pickles lol :D i also love in the beginning when she constantly is burning herself and causing problems, i'm a bit sad that she isn't as clumsy any more because it was just so sookie of her to be clumsy. anyway i think that she is such a great and amazing character and actress.

I had forgot all about the pot "pickles" episode!! Now I wanna go watch it. It was hilarious! I think all-in-all she's my favorite character... Lorelai is a close second. I think they should do a Season 8 even without Rory...they could focus more on Sookie and Jackson, as well as Lorelai/Luke/Chris, etc. I really would love to see more story lines with her.


Title: Re: Sookie St. James / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation
Post by: Sooks on March 22, 2007, 07:39:52 pm
Haha I love that episode, lalaliz2005!! haha I want to watch it now too!

I was just thinking about how the show would have been different, had Melissa not played Sookie. I was watching the features on one of my dvd box sets and they were showing the other woman who was perhaps going to play her! Not nearly as good an actress in my humble opinion...but then again, that is who we'd be used to proably! I'm just really glad Melissa got the role! (And not just because our names are the same! :P) I know the other woman had some connection to the director or writer or something...but I just love Melissa and SOOKIE makes me so happy!!  ;D


Title: Re: Sookie St. James / Melissa McCarthy Appreciation
Post by: lalaliz2005 on March 23, 2007, 06:20:47 am
I think I'm right about what I'm telling you: The woman that they wanted to originally play Sookie was Alex Borstein, who ended up playing Drella (the celloist at the Independence Inn). Coincidently, Alex in real life is married to Douglas Jackson...who plays Jackson on GG. While Alex is funny, Melissa is hilarious! I love the part when she's explaining how she ripped her jacket...she does that whole turning thing about how she tossed the cleaver (?) up in the air.

I hope they are very happy with their new addition!
Baby girls are the cutest!
Though, best of luck when she grows a little. I know from personal babysitting experience that girls can be quite a handful. Especially when they've had 5 pounds of sugar at the block party down the street and decide it would be funny to chew chips, spit it all over the carpet and then "vacuum" them up again. *shudders* ick.

Thanks for the news Heidi! It is very exciting!

Sookie was sweet and silly and goofy but she was also tough when it was called for. I like that she could lay down the law and show that side of her because it made her more three-dimensional. I remember the ep where Lorelai was panicing about starting up the inn and she said some unfair comments to Sookie and Sookie got pissed about it. Lorelai later apologized and at first Sookie was stubborn but softened. It just shows that even with such a beautiful and sweet person, you can't go over the line. Sookie did not take guff from anyone, including Michel or even Jackson.

Post by: SIDNEY on September 01, 2007, 05:57:41 pm
Sookie came as one of the most important characters by being Lorelai's best friend and one of the few trusted to be there. It's hard to find people like that so she is special. Aside from being sweet & funny, She is a perfectionist. She does what she does as best as she can.. i am sure as talented as she is at cooking, the least effort from her will come out just fine but I think fine is not enough for her ( for example; the food critic who said that her soup was fine or something like that but she couldn't get satisfied with that)..
I like her sweet nature, some says it takes so much courage to show kindness toward others so according to that we can say Sookie is a brave and generous person.

I just love what you said! So true and shows how great & strong person she is to be able to defend herself and not take it from anyone not even Lorelai, I like that about her but with that she is very forgiving and forgiveness takes strength too.

Oooh thanks for that link.  I'm looking forward to seeing Melissa in a new show.  I'm having withdrawals from seeing some of our beloved actors on the screen on a regular basis, so I can't wait to see this show.

Here is another promo shot for Samantha Who posted on Gilmore Girls News:

Post by: honkifuluvGG on September 26, 2007, 03:03:18 pm
Hey guys sorry for the double post but I just thought I'd share this article for the new show that Melissa is in.  It's an older article on BuddyTV.com but gives a bit of news on the whole line up, including our wonderful GG gal.

To fortify its fall lineup, ABC has greenlighted a new comedy series entitled Sam I Am. The pilot is slated to follow the fifth season of Dancing with the Stars on Monday nights at 9:30/8:30c.

Sam I Am follows the life of a 30-year old psychiatrist named Sam, who has to rediscover her life, her relationships and herself after getting retrograde amnesia following a hit and run accident. After an eight-day coma, she wakes up but can’t remember anything about her own life. In an attempt to find out who she is (or what her life used to be), she tries to unearth clues but is hindered by her parents and friends, who seem to have something to conceal from her. She discovers that she has been a self-centered and rude person, and has had more foes than friends. Eventually, she finds out that her so-called “accident” was actually an attempted murder.

Read on to find out more about the cast.

Leading the pilot is Christina Applegate as Samantha "Sam" Newly. Applegate is popularly known for playing Kelly Bundy on the sitcom Married…with Children. She has since acquired major roles in films such as Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and in the Broadway revival of Sweet Charity. Her other acting credits include Jesse, The Sweetest Thing, and Friends.

Barry Watson stars as Sam's boyfriend, Todd. This 33-year actor is most notable for his role as Matt Camden on the family drama 7th Heaven. He has also starred in his own series entitled What About Brian, in which he played the lead character Brian Davis.

Jennifer Esposito stars as Sam's best friend, Andrea. This Brooklyn-born actress and dancer is known for her appearance on Law & Order, Spin City, and in films like I Still Know What You Did last Summer and Crash.

Kevin Dunn stars as Howard Newly, Sam's father. This 51-year old actor has appeared in supporting roles in numerous films like Mad Love, Dave, Snake Eyes, Stir of Echoes, Small Soldiers and on the mini series The Beach Boys: An American Family as Murry Wilson.

Jean Smart stars as Regina Newly, Sam's mother. Smart is an Emmy-award winning actress who has appeared on Frasier, 24, and Center of the Universe. She has also graced the film industry with movies like The Kid, Sweet Home Alabama, and Bringing Down the House.

Melissa McCarthy stars as Dena. This 37-year old native of Illinois has appeared on Gilmore Girls as Sookie St. James. In addition, she has also acquired minor roles in the silver screen with films like The Kid, The Life of David Gale and Charlie’s Angels.

Tim Russ stars as Frank. Russ is best known for his role as Lieutenant Commander Tuvok on Star Trek: Voyager. Apart from starring in a number of Star Trek franchises, he has also appeared on ER, Twenty Good Years, and Murphy Brown.

Co-created by Don Todd and Cecelia Ahern, Sam I Am is produced by Peter Traugott through ABC Studios.

For all those Melissa fans I'm just copying some exciting info over from Heidi's Soapbox thread.

Hi gang,

I have a bit of an announcement to make.  It's one that some ORGers will probably enjoy and others not so much.  Either way, I hope we can still be friends.  :hearts:  Without further ado, I present GilmoreGirls.org's new sister site ... SamanthaWho.org (http://www.samanthawho.org).

Dun, dun, dun!  If you clicked the above link you'll have noticed there's not much to the site yet.  It's still quite a work in progress.  However, hopefully you can see the similarities between it and GilmoreGirls.org.  My goal was to create something that felt very similar, only more 'updated' (in the sense that GilmoreGirls.org was designed seven years ago).

In the event you're wondering why I created the new site, it's a combination of two factors.

  •   I'm a geek who loves working on web sites and interacting with a community of people who share a similar interest as me.
  •   I'm a fan of Melissa McCarthy and the entire Samantha who cast.  It's gotten very decent reviews thus far and sounds like a good show to take a chance on.

If anyone thinks I'm abandoning GilmoreGirls.org or the Forum anytime soon, that's simply not going to happen.  GilmoreGirls.org is my baby.  Nothing that SamanthaWho.org achieves will ever come close to how I feel about the original ORG.  GilmoreGirls.org is the big sister that SamanthaWho.org hopes and dreams to be.

I welcome everyone to check out both SamanthaWho.org (http://www.samanthawho.org) and the SamanthaWho.org Forum (http://www.samanthawho.org/forum).  If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions (both good and bad) please send them my way.  Thank you!  :V

~Heidi


Melissa had a good amount of air time in the first few eps and I'm very excited for her finding such a great show now that we can't see her as Sookie in any new episodes of Gilmore Girls.

So feel free to pop on over to the sister site Samantha Who? (http://www.samanthawho.org/) and join in the fun.

Sookie was sweet and silly and goofy but she was also tough when it was called for. I like that she could lay down the law and show that side of her because it made her more three-dimensional. I remember the ep where Lorelai was panicing about starting up the inn and she said some unfair comments to Sookie and Sookie got pissed about it.

Sookie did not take guff from anyone, including Michel or even Jackson.



You know, I hadn't really thought about her being this way much. But after reading your insight, I really am glad that she's more than just a happy, light-hearted, bubbly, free spirited person. I think there are definitely times where she can be seen as something other than that. And not always is she in the right there. There are times when she's freaking out about something that she's just over reacting or when she's the calm steady one who keeps things under control. She's got such a wide range and very successfully uses that range to her advantage. I really have such a hard time seeing Melissa play a role that isn't that of Sookie! However, the great actors will make you believe they are whoever they want you to! And she does an excellent job portraying anyone she plays!

I haven't been able to make it over to the SamanthaWho forum nearly as much as I'd like to. I haven't been able to make it to gg.org as much as I'd like...so I'll work on getting to both more often! SamanthaWho.org is a brilliant site for a show that I think will do quite well! Way to go, Heidi!

Is anyone watching Melissa on Samantha Who? I've watched the first two episodes and I'm kind of disappointed that they underuse Melissa. I think her character is a nice contrast to Jennifer Esposito's character who's rather mean, and I would like to see more of her in the show.

... There are times when she's freaking out about something that she's just over reacting or when she's the calm steady one who keeps things under control...

This was especially true early in the Sookie/Jackson relationship. Sookie went into panic mode easily and was often fearful that Jackson would leave her. It usually took his reassuring words to bring her back to reality. She grew to feel more secure about Jackson and didn't freak out so easily later in their relationship.

Does anyone know what happened to Melissa's new show Samantha Who? which starred Christina Applegate, Barry Watson and Jean Smart? Melissa played Samantha's (Christina Applegate) friend Dina who supports her during her amnesiac experience. I haven't seen it in ages but wasn't sure if it was because it's been cancelled or just post poned due to the writer's strike.

Hi Alexandria

The show has just been on a break due to the writers strike.  It returns on April 7th with 3 more pre-strike episodes that were yet to air, as well and 3 post strike episodes filmed.  Then it has also been picked up for a second season, but I've read mixed views on how many eps that will be.

GilmoreGirls.org actually has a sister site for the show if you are interested.  Go here (http://www.samanthawho.org/) to check it out.

Cheers

She's in Samantha Who? now.  Other than that I'm not sure what else she's been up to though.

Melissa McCarty will be playing the part of Molly in Mike and Molly a pilot produced by Chuck Lorre.  The part of Mike will be played by Billy Gardell. 

Melissa is also in the new Jennifer Lopez movie that will be coming out soon.  The title of the movie is not coming to me at the moment.  I will have to check on that and come back with it.

It's called The Back-Up Plan and believe me.  It'll be bad.  J-Lo isn't that hot these days.

Melissa's career has really taken off, hit sitcom and films.

Congrats to her on the Lead Actor/Comedy nomination for Mike and Molly.

Love all of the great things that are happening for Melissa McCarthy.  Bridesmaids has really been a big boost in her career.  She has been on a lot of the talk shows several times over especially since you emmy win.  Loving Mike and Molly.

I hate to admit I haven't watched her new show.   Is anyone else?  Is it online anywhere?  I am not the biggest sitcom fan, but I know it is doing well.

I've seen a few episodes but never really got into it. Pretty funny but overall nothing special..
Let's talk about her real accomplishment.. Bridesmaids, anyone? Best movie in the world. And I had such a hard time relating her back to Sookie cause the character was just so different! Glad to see she can be diverse and awesome!

Haha I'm glad you said something...I'm thinking "Someone please mention how awesome Bridesmaids was!" Hehe.

She looked so different from Sookie, and yet was soo awesome and believable in such a funny role.

Awesome stuff!
I saw a couple episodes of Mike and Molly and she's funny in that too, but I'm not much of a sitcom person either so I haven't gotten into watching it regularly.

Oh I love that banner. Sookie was always one of my favourites. She reminded me of myself in some ways. Has anyone seen Melissa's new show? I personally don't watch it but I'm happy to see her still working on TV every so often. I did enjoy her movie The Heat with Sandra Bullock though.
