I'm a pathetic Gilmore Fool

I just watched the last Gilmore Girls, which by the way until last week I didn't know was going to be the last Gilmore Girls and cried. Maybe it's my general mood of late, or my 2 hours of sleep in the past 24 hours, or maybe it's that I connected with that show a lot more than I ever thought I did. It wasn't until about 3 years ago that I even watched it, but thanks to the Family Channel I've seen every episode many times. While the show was supposed to be about Lorelai and her daughter Rory, Rory usually annoyed me and to me it became much more about Lorelai and her parents, the elder Gilmores Richard and Emily. Especially the volatile relationship between Emily and Lorelai, which reminded me quite a bit of my own relationship with my mother (though I often identified more with Emily). Lately I've been trying to emulate Lorelai's polite responses to her mother's criticisms, not that I've been succeeding. 

Anyway... it was a sad farewell for me tonight. There was a brief tender moment between Lorelai and Richard and also between Lorelai and Emily, but we didn't get the hug at least I've been longing to see between mother and daughter. Oh well, at least they finally got Luke and Lorelai together in the end and that's something.
