Not just because Rory was heading out into the real world, leaving Stars Hollow behind.
Or because the town came together, made her sash, and wished her a tearful good-bye.
Or even because it ended with the assumption that Luke and Lorelai were finally going to get together.
But because the show that I had invested 7 years on was just going away. Those characters were real to me.
I wanted to jump in my car, drive 17 hours and visit Stars Hollow.
Sit in Luke's Cafe and drink coffee.
Go to Dosey's Market and buy a box of corn starch from Taylor.
Watch one of Miss Patti's dance recitals.
Stay at the Dragonfly Inn and taste some of Sookie's Zucchini Soup.
And have Michelle be rude to me.
Yes, I am a Gilmore Girls fan.
Want me to prove it...go ahead, I dare you. OK, I will.
Did you know that the actor who played Kirk- the quirky guy about town - was in two episodes in the first season but not as Kirk?
He play Mick in the episode featuring Rory's first day at Chilton and he played a guy delivering swans to the Independence Inn for a wedding in the next episode.
Told you I was a fan.
So, why am I waxing poetically about a show that went off the air five years ago?
Because tonight, I'm hoping that this show may be my new Gilmore Girls...
It's from the creator of Gilmore Girls - Amy Sherman-Palladino - so it should be good, right?
It has a woman lead character.
It has a small East Coast town.
It has Emily Gilmore (or at least the actress who played her).
So, I'm willing to give it a shot.
It also has ballerinas. I'm not so sure about that.
But I'm going to give it a try.
I'm really hoping Bunheads has a strong cast of supporting characters. I think that was what made Gilmore Girls special. That and the fast-paced, witty dialogue between mother and daughter.
Man, I love that show. I may have watched the pilot of GG while writing this post. Actually, I may keep the pilot and the series finale on my DVR just because.
Now, that I have outed myself as a GG fanatic, are you planning to watch Bunheads?
If so, don't tell me about it on Tuesday. I'm traveling this week so I have to DVR it and plan to catch up on Wednesday night.
