When the screener DVD arrived Friday morning from Warner Bros. I was both excited and terrified. I was excited that I wouldn't have to wait until May 9 to watch the Gilmore Girls season finale. But I was terrified because this in many ways could end up being the show's series finale. Sure, Gilmore Girls will be back next season, but without Team Palladino at the helm, who really knows what version of Gilmore Girls we'll be getting?
So after staring at the DVD all weekend, I finally popped it in two hours ago, and now I'm here to tell the tale: Overall, it was a good Gilmore Girls episode. Had AS-P gone a little lighter on Taylor and the troubadours - and excised that unfortunate final scene you may have heard something about - it probably would have been a great episode.
Still, there was much to love. Here are some highlights (spoilerphobes, read at your own risk):
I'll spill more in Wednesday's Ask Ausiello.
