Gilmore Girls is my all time favourite seasoned show. Having watch every single episode more than 5 times each i have been told that i may have an obsession. I love the relationship created on screen with the mother and daughter team, played by Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel. The fluidity of their relationship made me jealous that i never had such a thing with my mother although at some points throughout the seasons it is easy to see as to why most families are not like that, such as the dysfunctional relationship between other family members such as the grandmother and father and several of the mother and daughter teams boyfriends, fiancées and husbands. The show is set in a rural town known as Star Hollow, where everyone knows everyone and where the best kept secret is that there are NO secrets. The show started in 2000 and lasted for 7 years, with a continuing story line which allows for the audience to be drawn into the inner workings of such a unique mother daughter relationship, making you want more and more and leaving you disappointed when an episode has finished. If you have the time, all of the seasons are most definitely worth a watch. Although the show was initially played on television, you are more likely to find it online available to watch, as i have found that the series DVD's are expensive.
Summary: A great introduction into single motherhood.
