This certainly cleared a lot of the clutter that was going about the show.. Definately a great interview! I, as well as everyone else will miss this show SO much.. Everyone worked REALLY hard the last seven years.. especially the lead actresses.

*tear*

Next week will just hurt so much.

Good question! So, what changes did you ask for?
Graham: My feeling was [the episode] just felt too light to me — even as a season finale. I thought this should be an opportunity to say good-bye, or at least have some sort of acknowledgement of all these characters. And we had this opportunity because there's a party in the town, and I just felt that I wanted it to be more dramatic. And David Rosenthal was extremely responsive — more than he needed to be. So he went back and took another look at it, with more of an eye to, "How can we acknowledge all of these characters? Give everyone a moment." I felt it was important to go a little deeper.
I appreciate this. One thing I came away with last night was feeling the need to say "goodbye" to all the characters, not just get Lorelai & Rory's love relationships wrapped up. They already brought closure for Zack, Christopher & Paris, as well as Yale, but I'm glad to hear that the last time with everyone else will feel like the last time.

Wow, this has to have been one of the hardest nights in my house EVER.  My little girl is devastated.  However, I can't help but thank all of the cast of Gilmore Girls, because they made such an amazing show.  I have watched every episode to date with my daughter.  She was only 19 months old when the pilot aired.  I have been hooked since.  And, every Tuesday night, my daughter and I have watched Lorelai and Rory, and felt like we were part of a wonderful world in Stars Hollow, CT.  There have been ups, downs, sideways, and backwards every week.  Lauren Graham played Lorelai with a lot of class and for someone who isn't a single mother, she played her role to perfection. There are lots of hats to wear, and usually, most single mom's are "Livin' on a prayer, baby."  i would love to be able to tell her how much it meant for me, as a single mother, to see a single mother on the tv that was actually someone like me.  And for Alexis Bledel, I stand in heartfelt tribute, with humility and a great deal of thanks, for giving my daughter a hero on TV that makes me feel proud to be a Mom.  My daughter wants to be just llike Rory, smart, funny, determined, a bookaholic, and a Yale graduate.  Granted, the thought of the tution bill is terrifying because there aren't any Richard and Emily's in our family.  Most people don't have them (at least not the income) but then again, we all do have them.  Its a real family, nothing hidden.  That  is something to be proud of.  This show should make all of the cast proud.

I loved reading this.  I think that the character of Rory was so wonderfully created to be a role model for girls. 
It was great to see a teenage character written as a smart, funny, beautiful, bookworm instead of a snotty teenager.  I think it is great that your daughter wants to be like Rory instead of Britney Spears or some other airhead.  Sounds like you are a great mom and the two of you have a close relationship. 
Gilmore Girls is one of those rare shows that you can watch with your kids and both enjoy it.  I will really miss it.

Thanks for posting this great interview!!  I admire both Lauren and Alexis for their hard work.  It would not have been easy doing this show, but I am glad to hear that even though it was a long haul, they enjoyed their experience.  The GG is a delight and will go down in TV history as one of those shows that you can't help smiling about whenever you think about Lorelai and Rory or any of the characters of Stars Hollow.  Sometimes some of my mum's mannerisms remind me of Emily Gilmore (my mum grew up in that type of environment), but I am definitely no Lorelai Gilmore. Cheesy

Thanks again!!

I REALLY ENJOYED reading what you wrote in here it's well-expressed actually. i 'm not a mum but i would have liked to watch the show with my daughter as you said lorelai played her role with perfection and class and all love her for this. those two girls are part of our lives because they brought us so much we have lived with them during along time we shared good moments with them we laughed when they did we cried when they cried and we were symply happy with them. well for me gilmore girls is more than a tv show it's a real art of living i'm really greatful to them anf lorelai doesn't have to worry 'coz in years to come when she is 55 we 'll remember her she is impossible to be forgotten. I hope now that we won't forget all that this tv show thaught us.
