I didn't like Kirk in the beginning, but over time my love for him grew because he really does bring extra entertainment to the show.

The only time I felt that I hated him was when he crashed into Luke's and didn't feel bad about it at all, he acted as if it was Luke's fault.

That and when he made an offer on the house that Luke wanted....

Huh.  Am I in the right thread?  Why, glory be, I am!!

Kirk is an example of a schtick gone insane.  Okay, he's weird, but it's possible to be weird without going overboard.  Actually, I think two things went wrong with the character.  First, when they decided to make him a main character.  He's tolerable in small doses.  Not so much when he has to have a scene in just about every episode, if not every one (more than even Richard and Emily).  And, especially when those scenes all have to be about him being kooky.  It's like watching a scripted show that's nothing but jokes or pratfalls.  Where's the actual story? 

The second thing they did wrong with Kirk was when they started to infantilize him.  I don't know the exact time it started (maybe it was always there, but I never noticed) but the time it really stood out was when Rory and Paris got drunk on Miss Patty's punch.  Lorelai talked to him like he was a kid, and it was not only supposed to be funny, but it was supposed to be funny because it was supposed to come across as natural.  Sure, people act immature all the time.  And, some people are kids at heart.  Kirk didn't come across as either.  He came (I can see the points cha-cha-chaing away) across as a mentally disabled person who truly had the mental and emotional faculty of a child.  If he was written like that, maybe it would work.  But, I assumed we're not supposed to see anything off about Kirk except that he's one of the crazy townies.  I mean, the characters aren't really malicious, so I doubt someone like Luke would treat Kirk the way he does if Kirk was actually mentally handicapped.  So, Kirk just was embarrassing to watch for me.

I don't think you can really hate Kirk, just be annoyed and a little disturbed by him. that is how I feel. I mean once I did hate him, but I'm slowly starting to think he's just really annoying!

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. Personally, I love Kirk (note the sig) but I agree that he shouldn't be a main character. Dani257 is right about him tolerable in small doses.

@ gilmorefriend and gg4life07 - there should be a Kirk Gleason Appreciation thread somewhere on the forum. Please post there. Yes, I know it's hard to believe that some people do not like Kirk, but it's their opinion. I'm really not trying to be mean here, I'm just saying please don't keep posting things like "Why don't you like Kirk?" etc.

One of the best parts was in the finail episodes the sash he made from his moms nightgown.  I laughed soooo hard.  it just threw a wrench in the whole emotional part of the ending.  Kirk was one of my top 10 charactores easlily .

Kirk annoys me sometimes. I've laughed at a couple of things he has done, but not many.
 I sometimes feel like he is too "dumb" for the show as its so fast paced and everyone else in the show is reasonably smart, knows whats going on in the world at the time etc.
