I even miss Taylor Doose a little.
Apparently, not all of our "Gilmore Girls" holes are meant to be filled. I'd hoped that "Bunheads" would provide that familiar tingle, but it just reminded me how badly I missed Stars Hollow -- and how well "Gilmore" holds up on marathon re-watch. Fanny is a poor man's Emily Gilmore, and everyone knows Emily wouldn't associate with a poor man's anything. She'll leave that nonsense for harlots like Pennilyn Lott.
No matter how many "Bunheads" come along, I am clinging to the original. Like Dean clung to Rory way after they broke up. Like Lorelai clung to her first cup of coffee in the morning. Like Kirk clung to his pillow to protect his modesty during his naked night terrors.
Seriously, the DVDs are always super cheap. Do yourself a favor and don't settle for second best. There is no Paris Gellar in "Bunheads." You deserve Paris Gellar.
