Smad November 13, 2015 Share November 13, 2015 There have been a lot of posts about lack of physical contact and "I love you's" but that was the mandate from ASP. I often wondered what kind of home life she had to refuse to allow that. It made the relationship appear way more distant that we would have liked or believed in. I blame it on the stilted way she portrayed them as a couple. But here is the thing where it gets truely puzzling for me. ASP seems to think of 'hands-off' only in romantic relationships. Prior to L/L getting together Lorelai was constantly all over Luke. And most of the time it was just little things. She would slap his forearm or chest or pat him on the shoulder. She was constantly touching him. As soon as S5 started except for the first 3 episodes all of that was gone (that made sense how?), along with their banter most of the time (hate you ASP), their meaningful conversations (slaps Amy with her own top hat) and all the things as to why I wanted them together. She took it all away and what little was left got destroyed with soap tropes, caricature elder Gilmores, class differences portrayed in a downright offending way (Luke wearing jeans to dinner with Emily, really ASP?), dumbing down of characters along with character assasinations and Chris shaped plot devices. 3 Link to comment
