    New to the GG? Try these 5 episodes

    I figured since this thread was directed at newbies that it would be the right place to ask this. Okay, so I've been watching this for the first time and I'm up to the first part of the 2nd season. It just wasn't a show that caught my attention when it was on, but I figured I might as well try it since it popped up on Netflix, and since a lot of people who like my other favorite shows seem to really like this one. My question is this: Is every Rory/Lorelai love interest on this show a complete and unrepentant asshole? Because so far that's the idea I'm getting. I'm up to the episode where Jess first appears, and I want so badly to just punch him in the face. Like, his face is more punchable to me at this point than the Tristan character (I think it was Tara on an EHG ep who said CMM had the most punchable face on TV? I agree that he's pretty bad, but this Jess dude is just the worst). I really like this show a lot, but I don't see a lot of redeeming qualities in any of these guys, and I kind of don't buy any of them as viable love interests. And it really seems like these women, who for the most part seem really intelligent and strong, are super into these dudes and totally okay with their whiny, jealous, entitled behavior. Is this an ongoing thing throughout the length of the series?

    Quotable Quotes: Lines from TV You've Made Your Own

    Two of my favorites come from Archer and Frisky Dingo - "Grill me a cheese," for when I'm feeling snacky but also lazy and petulant, and "We can never go back to Arizona," well, just because. Unfortunately I usually just get blank stares for those two. Another one I have in regular rotation is "I've made a huge mistake." And for some reason, a ridiculous and random Adam Sandler thing has stuck in my brain for decades ("Fatty McGee, you're the fattest!"), which is the reason I call my cat Fatty McGee pretty regularly. ETA: I can't believe I forgot this one from Lucille Bluth, because it's probably the one I use the most: "I don't understand the question and I won't respond to it." Works for almost any occasion, I've found.

    Pet(s): Photos & Discussion

    This is Kit. She's five years old and I found her where I used to work when she was about 5 weeks old. 99% of the time she's a complete asshole, but I love her cranky little ass anyway.

    EHG Mark I

    Oh this is fantastic. I was just thinking the other day that I really wanted to listen to the episode where Joe and Mark get super into Jeopardy and all of the rules that go along with watching it. I loved that one. And the game time for that episode was hilarious too.
