My husband watched five minutes of Ta Koritsia Gilmore* and his head didn't explode. There is hope for him yet.

*I am just now watching the second season and I realize the show is in its seventh season, so please don't tell me what happens, like my sister-in-law started to do before I put my hands over my ears and started singing "John, Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt" at the top of my lungs.

Well, if it helps him feel any more "manly", it is rather popular amongst Norwegian men, and it just happens to be one of my favorite shows - unfortunately when we moved to this island a few years ago, we lost the ability to receive the channel it airs on. FORTUNATELY, they're bringing it to our dvd club soon.

I love the humor on the show, because the silly banter and word play reminds me of the relationship between I and my sister. Poor Pooks, though she gets the humor, just shakes her head.

the first three or four seasons of G.Girls is amongst the best TV ever written. Extremely witty with a great case, I watched it religiously with my wife for most of its run. I'm a little less enthusiastic now because imo, the show has dropped in quality writing, but those first few years were grand.

I was scared to say out loud that I loved the G. Girls until I was attending a blogger lunch and Big Orange Michael mentioned that he loved G. Girls. I felt liberated!

My husband is absolutely crazy about Gilmore Girls. I can't normally get him to buy a CD without threatening him and he hates buying DVDs and will only rent them but the second a new season of GG comes out on DVD, he buys it.

I'm happy about this because while I can watch it on TV in German, they talk so fast that I sometimes have trouble keeping up. With the DVD I can watch it in English and enjoy it much more.

My hubby won't even give it a chance. He spent the entire five minutes mocking the show. I just don't know what I am going to do with him!
