I don't know if i'm the only one who have noticed this but the acting in this season is really bad. They are immature. Especially Lorelai and Rory. Their acting is very fake and unbelievable. The character don't seem like themselves. Lorelai is very pathetic and so is Rory in some parts. Rory became in a few episodes at least like the clone of Louise and Madlin. What a freaky turn around. She became so concerned about her look and fashion.
Plus the Rory/Lorelai relationship is so weird. It's kind of formal, a little cold, a lot distant. Nothing special. Nothing like what made the show what it was.
