Disc 1 freezes after 3rd episode
Verified purchase
The description stated the product was new. The appearance of the box and DVDs looked fine and the picture quality was good. When Disc 1 came on the Warner Bros trademark started freezing but then it went to the main menu. I was able to watch the first 3 episodes without any problem but the disc freezed entirely at the beginning of the 4th episode. I tried other media players with no success. Very disappointed and confused. I purchased Gilmore Girls boxset from another seller and had to return it because it was worn, discs were scratched and picture was grainy. So I had to return it as well. Reviewers warned to stay away from boxsets so I began ordering single Seasons. I ordered Season 7 from yet another seller and it was perfectly fine. I have never had any problem ordering DVDs in the past until Gilmore Girls. What is up with that?

No problem with the video quality, but...
Verified purchase
I wanted to see season one again because I enjoyed series and although it got a little tired later on, it was great during the first season. I'd read reviews about disc two not working and I had an issue with it too, but if you open and shut the disc drawer a few times it eventually works at least for me. All the other discs worked with no issues. I didn't see any other offerings and wanted it, so could live with the issue. Although it would be nice if they could fix that problem for future customers.

Gilmore at It's Best
Verified purchase
My wife adores the series and I like it, too. She'd seen this back in college and talked about it for some time, so I took a chance ... and it payed off! One of her utmost favorites! The thing that really makes the series is the measure of just how much the viewer wishes they were part of Stars Hollow. I'm one of those who - in the first few seasons, anyway - wished such. Now, although I feel it never surpasses the energy and vibe of season one, the series holds up well nearly throughout its whole seven year run. With it being a dramedy, the balance is really best in its introduction. After this, the drama picks up some and, slowly, Stars Hollow becomes less and less charming and sweet over time. However, the next three years are still pretty strong (especially season three) - and if only season six could have held onto the brilliance it created during its first half. Whether you become a big fan or not, though, I feel anyone couldn't help loving season one. In this season, Rory starts dating and begins attending the very competitive Chilton, as her mother has boy problems of her own. Rory's time at Chilton, her grandparents, and Luke who runs the diner add some good drama, but "Rory's Birthday Parties" proves just how much fun Stars Hollow can be.

Fantastic Feel-Good Series!
Verified purchase
For anyone who likes witty comments, quirky personalisties, communities, family or even romance than this series is perfect.
If focuses on the daily lives of mother/daughter team: Lorelai and Rory Gilmore. This series starts off with Rory at 16 and her mother, who had Rory and left home when she was 16. for all these years they have relied on each other but when Rory gets an offer to prestigious school, financial hardships follow and Lorelai turns to her parents for assistance. This first season focuses on the precarious relationship they two have with the Lorelai's parents. In addition, thoughout the series we get to meet the fascinating people of Stars Hollow (where they live). Exuberant Sookie, the ornery yet caring Luke, the noisy neighbors, stunted Kirk and many more loveable characters. As all drama's must we also get to join the Gilmore's in some of their relationships as well.
Do not think that this series is only for females! I know guys who would watch episodes with me and would get a kick from the wittism shown and the fast paced dialogue with pop- culture references makes this fun for everyone. So while its perfect to sit and watch with you mom, grandmother, daughter, etc; feel free to watch it with your boyfriend, husband, neighbor, etc. The lighthearted comedic side is a perfect blend to its drama/family counterpart.
The packaging is also nice her. each disc gets its own side to click into a plastic holder, so no more discs stacking one ontop another. This really seems to help with avoiding scratches. So sit back with your favorite snacks ( I guarantee you'll see the Gilmore Girls do the same throughout the show), grab a friend or family member and enjoy the show.

This show has some of the best writing you'll hear
Verified purchase
This show has some of the best writing you'll hear...ever. It was a shame for this show to go off the air after just 7 seasons. If you like rapid-fire, smart dialogue loaded with pop culture references and delightfully quirky characters, this show is a must. Lauren Graham (Parenthood) and Melissa McCarthy (Mike & Molly, Bridesmaids, etc, etc) may be better known for their more recent work, but Gilmore Girls will always be my favorite roles for both. Alexis Bledel is lovely as daughter Rory Gilmore and veteran screen actors Edward Herrmann and Carol Bishop are outstanding as the Gilmore grandparents. Recurring characters played by Sally Struthers and Liz Torres, among others, are frosting on the cake. I own all seven seasons on DVD but purchased these two episodes when I needed a Gilmore Girls fix on my Kindle. This series is worth the investment!

A show whereon talk is elevated to high art
Verified purchase
There are only three shows that I know where the act of conversation is elevated to the status of high art: BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, THE WEST WING (early seasons only), and THE GILMORE GIRLS. Though these three shows may not have a great deal in common in other ways, all three revel in great talk. Other shows have good talk, but these three have great, great talk. Take just a sample, delivered at a machine gun pace:

GRANDMA: You were on the phone.
GRANDPA: Long distance.
LORELAI: God?
GRANDPA: London.
LORELAI: God lives in London?
GRANDPA: My mother lives in London.
LORELAI: Your mother is God?
GRANDPA: Lorelai.
LORELAI: So, God IS a woman...
GRANDPA: Lorelai.
LORELAI: And a relative, that's so cool. I'm gonna totally ask for favors.

Series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, the self-proclaimed model for Lorelai Gilmore and the writer of an unreasonably large number of the brilliant screenplays, has an absolute genius for talk. Few movies and no television series (apart from the above mentioned BUFFY and WEST WING-early-seasons-only) contain better talk. I watch the episodes of this series with a persistent grin and an unceasing delight in the manner in which the show elevates mere talk to something greater than mere talk. It is in many other ways a very good show, but what makes it exceptional is its gift for gab.

But it takes more than a great script filled with great talk. It takes actors who can pull it off. But luckily, THE GILMORE GIRLS is filled with a bevy of competent actors who are completely capable of handling every nuance of the script. All are at least solid, but in Lauren Graham the show has someone who is exceptional. The show would be very good even with a lesser actress, but she is absolutely perfect as Lorelai Gilmore.

There is never a point at which this show is ever less than completely entertaining, and it often puts me in mind of "A Prarie Home Companion," with the way that you get to know each character in the town of Stars Hollow. Although Lauren Graham dominates the show, the series in fact features an ensemble supporting cast, with each person bringing a perfect additional touch to the show.

And for all literate folks the show is an especial delight. How many shows routinely drop names like Stella (from STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE), Proust, Oscar Levant, Marlon Perkins (the Wild Kingdom guy), Tolstoy, John Muir, Thoreau, and so forth, as well as extended discussions of ennui. And the musical references are consistently cool: PJ Harvey, Belle and Sebastian, Nico, Blur, and a host of others. I get all the references, but I think even if you don't it would be fun for once not to have a show whose scripts are directed at the lowest common denominator but no higher.

I have to add that I love the interaction between Lorelai and Rory. They have what is without question the finest onscreen relationship between parent and child on TV. Oh, and I'd like to add that more than one person (well, two) has told me that Lorelai and Rory remind them of me and my daughter, so I like to keep that in mind when I watch the show.

Setting a Trend
Verified purchase
I started watching Gilmore Girls when I was two months pregnant. I had something in common with Lorelei Gilmore. I was young and I was pregnant. I looked to the show for inspiration while I went through the lonely weeks of pregnancy. She was strong, she made it, and Rory was healthy and intelligent.

Now my son is six months old and I'm still watching the show faithfully. I started watching the show in the middle of the 4th season and became really curious on what the first few seasons were about. I decided to purchase the first season on DVD.

I was not disappointed by the DVD. I really wish there were more extras. It did seem like there was an odd "echoing" quality to the audio at times which became jarring. However, any Gilmore Girls fan knows that nothing matters except the story. And what a fine story it is.

Lorelei Gilmore was 16 years old when she became pregnant and delivered a healthy baby girl. In her delirius state, she decided to name her daughter afer herself -- Lorelei Gilmore. Shortening the name, her now-16-year-old daughter goes by the nickname Rory. The show explores the mother-daughter relationship of Lorelei and Rory as well as their relationship with the outside world. Lorelei, a coffee-aholic and non-cooker, spends most of her eating hours at "Luke's", a diner. Luke is a grouchy man, but has a lot of charm. Lorelei spends her working hours at the Independence Inn, where she rose from a lowly maid to the manager, second only to the owner. There we explore a relationship with Michel, a French.. well.. jerk, and Lorelei's best friend Sooki! Sooki is an accident waiting to happen, but good hearted and loving.

On the other hand, Lorelei's parents aren't so good hearted or loving. At least, on the surface they aren't. Emily Gilmore is a control freak who desires to run her daughters life. Richard Gilmore is a Top Dawg at some company where he makes beaucoup money. While Lorelei lives a middle class life, her parents are upper class.

There are a lot more tangles and subplots to this fascinating story. And, if I was willing to name my daughter after Lorelei, then shouldn't you at least check it out? :)

the glorious first season of "Gilmore Girls"
Verified purchase
It's said that certain shows sometimes take half a season or so to "warm up" before they really take off--not the case with "Gilmore Girls"--the show established itself immediately and the whole first season remains continually addictive episode after episode. The chemistry between Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel is uncanny and overwhelmingly convincing and endlessly entertaining. The show does a great job of slipping in "side stories" for additional interest while keeping the focus primarily on the endeavors of Lorelai and Rory. Essentially, all of the show's acting is excellent, including Scott Patterson's masterful portrayal of the Luke character, but it's Alexis Bledel who 'steals the show' again and again--granted, she's at an advantage in the sense that she's playing such a likeable character in the first place, however, she truly brings the Rory character to life in such a one-of-a-kind way that's pure genius. Obviously a lot has already been said about "Gilmore Girls" and certainly no one in the right mind can deny it's a terrific show. I'd just like to add that there's a wonderfully uplifting and human quality about "Gilmore Girls"--to put it a certain way, it makes you realize that certain things that can happen in life are really not as catastrophic as they may appear. "Gilmore Girls" serves as a reminder of the joyfulness that life can provide, as well as the importance of really learning from life's experiences. Plus, there is some GREAT and intelligent humor in here that totally hits the spot, plus fun references to history, music, and more. This 6 DVD set is excellently packaged and contains generous bonus material--add to this the consistent high quality of the show itself, this set easily justifies its price. If you've never really watched "Gilmore Girls" much, or if you've missed a lot of episodes, this is an ideal way to start getting caught up, and where better to start than the beginning!
