i don't think they will screw up the luke-lor-thing (again). their kiss makes me also sad though, as this may be the last time we'll see them being together.  Sad we definently deserve more!  Cry Cry Cry

Only one good thing could come out of not having a season 8 - The fact that if they kiss and get 'back together' on the last episode, then there's no new season, they won't be able to screw it up again.  Sad

yeah you're right but IMO they would't dare to do this. because if they uncancel the show and come back for another season (or a shortened one), they would do it to give us fans a proper ending which would include luke and lorelai being together. (at least for the majority i think  Wink )

Yeah, if we did get a season 8, nothing could screw up the L/L relationship! Maybe Emily and Richard might..but Luke and Lorelai have been through everything. In the end, they'd be together no matter what. Smiley

The Following Article was published in the Contra Costa Times this morning:
http://contracostatimes.com/search/ci_5892413
May14:

Quoting the GilmoresFor Candy Wilbur and her teen daughter, Sammie Suchland, it's long been a weekly routine. Every Tuesday, at 8 p.m. sharp, they plant themselves on the couch and command their TV set to whisk them off to Stars Hollow, the idyllic New England hamlet that the "Gilmore Girls" call home.
At these bonding sessions popcorn is optional, but silence is not. The No. 1 rule? Shut up.

"If you run your mouth, you get the evil eye," says Wilbur, a Pleasant Hill resident. "But, of course, once the show is over, we discuss and dissect and hash it out for an entire week."

Alas, mother and daughter soon will have to find something else to talk about. After seven seasons of romantic misadventures, small-town oddities and snappy coffee-fueled wisecracks, "Gilmore Girls" is calling it quits. The witty, warmhearted series ends its run this week.

"I think the show fell off a bit in quality over the last season or so," says Suchland, 17. "But I never stopped loving these characters, so it's going to be pretty sad to see them go."

For some, it's not only sad, but stunning. Although there had been a great deal of pull-the-plug talk ever since "Gilmore Girls" creator Amy Sherman-Palladino left the show at the end of last season, until two weeks ago many were led to believe that the series would return next fall for one more abbreviated go-around of 13 episodes. But when The CW struggled to strike a deal with lead actresses Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel, the network decided to call it a wrap.
"I think a lot of fans are going through the different stages of grief," says Michael Ausiello, a writer for "TV Guide" and a die-hard devotee of the show. "Initially they were in shock and now they're settling into anger. ... They feel cheated."

Few television shows establish such a passionate bond with their fans. But when "Gilmore Girls" debuted in 2000, it had the look and feel of something special. It told the story of Lorelai Gilmore, a headstrong single mother who, at 16, bore her only child, Rory, out of wedlock. And much to the snobby dismay of her blue-blooded parents, she raised her daughter on her own in a quirky New England town where everybody knows everybody's business.

As conceived by Sherman-Palladino, the series resisted tiresome family-show conventions by giving the mother-daughter relationship rich and believable treatment. The glib and often flighty Lorelai (Graham) and the smart and sensible Rory (Bledel) made for compelling heroines as they navigated their way, arm in arm, through boy troubles, awkward squabbles with the grandparents and oh-so-many emotional junk-food binges. Along the way, the show helped to define a network while offering insights into growing up, parenting and family politics.

"I liked how the show highlighted how different these two females were, but how well they still managed to work together," says Katie Salazar, 18, a Northgate High School senior. "Yes, they were mother and daughter, but they were real friends, too, and, in some ways, they kind of grew up together."

"Gilmore Girls" also sounded like no other show on television. From the start, Sherman-Palladino peppered her scripts with pop-cultural and literary references and gave the java-guzzling Lorelai and Rory scores of crackling one-liners to toss at each other. The loquacious actresses were dubbed by "TV Guide" as prime time's "banter-weight champs."

"I know fans who will rush to Wikipedia as soon as an episode ended just to understand all the references they may have missed," says Heidi Chambers, a Southern California fan who runs the Web site gilmoregirls.org. "The dialogue always made me feel like I was watching a smart show that wasn't dumbed down just to get more people to watch."

Salazar echoes that sentiment, saying, "I felt like I was pretty intelligent if I could get 60 percent of what they were talking about."

Adding to the allure of "Gilmore Girls" was a true sense of place. Cozy Stars Hollow, highly stocked with weird and colorful folk, was a key character in the show.

"Over the years, you feel like you know all the people and places in the town," says Wilbur. "You feel a sense of ownership."

"I love it," Suchland adds, "because it feels nothing like living in Pleasant Hill."

Suchland and Wilbur started watching "Gilmore Girls" when mom presented daughter with a complete-season DVD set for her 14th birthday. "We put the popcorn on and stayed up past midnight watching the whole thing," Suchland recalls. "That was the start. We were hooked."

Of course, you didn't have to be part of a mother-daughter team to enjoy "Gilmore Girls," but in an era of fragmented viewing habits, it was a rare show that had the power to bridge the generation gap. Laura Sardis, a Corte Madera resident, would routinely send episodes to her daughters Taryn, 24, and Amanda, 19, in Tucson, Ariz., and Los Angeles, respectively, and then jump on the phone for extensive chat sessions.

"I'm totally addicted," says Sardis. "And having the girls involved made it all the more touching. ... There are so many family dynamics and contemporary issues in the show that lead to fantastic discussions."

Lindsey Pannell, a Crockett resident, can relate. She and her daughter, Suzanne Millward, 17, have watched the show for years with special attention paid to the coming-of-age challenges faced by Rory.

"All these recognizable issues young women have with school and boyfriends and their social life were playing out right there on the TV screen and, at times, it was helpful," she says. "It opened the door for us to talk about things going on in her own life."

Heidi, you're famous! Shocked

I highly suggest that EVERYONE should watch the series finale tomorrow if we want to even hope for something like 7th Heaven to occur. I don't know how Tivo and DVR works so if you're not going to be able to watch for some reason, record the old fashion way if you still can. Tell everyone you know that this is the last episode so they must watch it.

Season 8, there is no debate. Wink

I have emailed and mailed everyone on your list.  Please tell me how else I can help to save our Gilmore Girls.  This show is not even close to finished.  It is like sending you over a cliff with no life line.  I will beg them if needed.  Please let me know.  I have been hooked since the first episode.  This is what gets me through my week with something to look forward to for the next week.  If they take it off the air, evem though I watch other CW shows and am a big fan, I will not watch the CW and any of its programs.

Okay I need some help understanding something.

Not only did the CW cancel our beloved Gilmore Girls prematurely, but I also saw over the weekend that the CW is not bringing back Seventh Heaven either. I didn't really support that program but I am confused over why the network is getting rid of 2 quality family shows and yet advertising for reality show participants on their website.

I guess that they think this is the right direction to take their programming in. I think we, the fans, need to wake up these people up.

I totally agree with those on this forum that have said fans have more power, especially purchasing power, than they realize.

I intend to bring up the point of the lack of family programming in my emails to the sponsors.

I encourage anyone to do the same.

Yes, we should.
And thats one of the points we have been putting in our letters.
At least I have.


I've totally looking down on the CW right now.
I do not get their thinking.
It's like my band director and his choice of Drum Major.
Sorry, had to mini-rant.
