    S11.E21: How To Save A Life

    When it comes to shocking character deaths, Shonda could really learn a thing or two from Joss Whedon! What I liked, was the scene where Mer is asked to sign the papers! Ellen acted her ass off. I thought the flashbacks were good too! But, I hated how emotionally manipulative the episode was. I spent the first half waiting for a sudden catastrophe! And, it's a small detail, but cops would never have lights going when delivering bad news. Although, that scene did get me choked up, but being married to a cop, I do worry about receiving a similar knock on the door.

    Lynny, I make my gravy using dried shitake mushrooms, shallots, miso paste and a bit of flour. A lot of people use boullion, veggie broth, soya sauce, nutritional yeast, etc.

    My favourite vegetarian poutine is the gourmet poutine from Utopia in Toronto.

    I'm biased as a vegetarian, but none of the poutines sounded that great to me. Coleslaw on poutine seems odd and New York Fries makes butter chicken poutine, so that just isn't that original. The steak poutine sounds like something I've seen on every gastro pub menu around. And, the Japanese did seem really west coast (anyone who comes to Vancouver needs to try japadog), but it was not very well thought out and too complicated to execute. But, I was happy to see my old campus on tv! Go Gryphons!

    S11.E16: Don't Dream It's Over

    I missed that! What was the explanation?

    True. But, Surrey is not a city for fine dining. It has been my home for 6.5 years and the fanciest restaurant around is probably The Keg (although there are some lovely eateries in South Surrey and White Rock). Being married to a member of the Surrey RCMP I am all to familiar with the less savoury members of my community.

    S30.E03: Crazy Is As Crazy Does

    My husband's theory is that they decided one person would vote for Nina to try and spare some of her feelings, by making it seem like her boot wasn't such an easy choice.

    S04.E10: There Is My Heart

    Pretty much everything Daphne does annoys me! I was wondering why they didn't go wit pen and paper in the hospital as well; at the very least to ask about allergies!

    S19.E12: The Finale / S19.E13: After The Final Rose

    Between Chris' giggle and Whitney's nasal voice, I feel sorry for those hypothetical babies!

    "There's not too many truffles in Surrey!" Ha! Very true. And, that tempura poached egg was super kill. I've never seen anything like that.

    S11.E14: The Distance

    Even if they have consultants on set, they might easily ignore their advice! My uncle was asked to consult on a show that was being filmed at the hospital he worked at, but quit because they favoured drama over realism. My uncle did not want his name associated with the show. Another small detail that bothered me was Herman's voice when she woke up. I had a two hour surgery a few months ago and had no voice due to the breathing tube when I awoke, yet after an 18 hour surgery and being unconscious for an extended period, Herman sounded like she had a bit of a tickle!

    Was anyone else disappointed that GD didn't say to Edwards, "there is no crying in surgery"?

    S04.E09: The Player's Choice

    At least he didn't pitch a movie about two girls switched at birth!

    I'm not that surprised that lorelai never accompanied her parents to Europe. They made it clear that they went to Europe every other year, in the fall. Lorelai would have been in school.

    S19.E11: The Women Tell All

    Maybe she reads this forum! They would be perfect together! And Kelsey and Rodney could bond over exploiting deaths of their loved ones! I think Jade was more upset that he did not tell her how he was feeling at the time, and had to read about it on his blog later.

    I'm surprised that someone with a military background wouldn't have know this! I'm about the least athletic person on the planet and I knew.

    S30: Vince Sly

    i think anyone who owns up to using the tragic death of their sister and laughs about it, lacks a serious ,oral compas, making them far scarier than Featherhead!

    umm... I was agreeing with you. :)

    I'm with you Green! And, stuff that might not seem grenade-like to the rest of my us, may have seemed so to Lorelai! Like when Emily arranged for Richard to teach Rory to golf... lorelai acted like Rory was spending an afternoon getting a colonoscopy, not spending time at a country club!

    S11.E13: Staring At The End

    I agree with the other posters! This episode was boring, it was filler, and I just don't care about Amelia. The only moment I kind of liked, or at least appreciated, was Owen saying to Amelia, "it's just coffee." I thought it was a nice nod to those of us who have stuck by the show since the beginning.
  22. I completely agree. I really wish we had seen more progress in Lorelai and Emily's relationship. I always wondered why in a show that focused so much on the relationships between mothers and draughts, we never learned more about Emily's relationship with her own mother. The only time I remember her bring mentioned was when discussing her wedding dress. I would loved to have the context of their bond to contrast and compare.

    The only in character explanation is that Lorelai couldn't stand the idea that Emily would learn something about Logan, that lorelai didn't know!
  24. If we are going to discuss uptight characters, Sookie deserves mention! The woman had a diagram for loading her dishwasher!

    S11.E11: All I Could Do Was Cry

    Are you talking about the episode from the week before? April wasn't working on the day her son was born.
