About Gilmore Girls:

Gilmore Girls is an iconic American drama and comedy, created by Amy Sherman-Palladino. The show tells the story of Lorelai Gilmore and daughter Rory Gilmore, as they try to fulfil their dreams, forge relationships, and have a few laughs on the way. Lorelai wants to open an inn with her friend Sookie St. James. Rory wants to go to Harvard and become a journalist.

Lorelai is the child out of the two. Talkative, sarcastic, and always ready to use a pop culture reference, Lorelai acts like a teenager. However, when Rory gets into the exclusive Chilton Preparatory School, Lorelai’s background is revealed. She was born with a silver spoon in her mouth but hated it. Her parents Richard and Emily Gilmore had planned every aspect of her life, which caused her to rebel. This rebellious attitude led to a teenage pregnancy with her then boyfriend Christopher Hayden. This strained their relationship immensely. Seeing Rory needs money, Lorelai gets the money from her parents, with one condition. Lorelai and Rory must have dinner with them every Friday night. These Friday night dinners are a running gag in the show, especially as Lorelai tries hilariously to get out of them. 

Rory is mostly seen as more mature than Lorelai, especially with her relationships with her grandparents. However, this is because of the massive strain on her to live up to her mother’s and grandparent’s expectations (the expectations her mother ran away from). She has always done what was required from her, hence how she got into Chilton in the first place. However, this pressure means she spirals when she seems to fail in a task. An example is during an internship in the Stamford Eagle Gazette, where she is offended by criticism from the newspaper owner. She eventually graduates from Yale and becomes a reporter from an online magazine. 

Lorelai and Rory go through many relationships. Lorelai has an on/off relationship with Christopher Hayden. However, they decide to leave things as he has another daughter and they have too much history. Another relationship is with Luke Danes, the owner of Luke's Diner. They have each other’s back no matter what and can joke around with one another constantly. Rory’s first relationship is Dean Forester, from her old school. Jess Mariano, Luke’s nephew, gets her attention. However, they seem too different. Rory’s last serious relationship is with Logan Huntzberger, heir to Huntzberger Publishing Company.

Other characters include Rory’s rival and friend Paris Geller, dance teacher Patricia "Miss Patty" LaCosta, neighbours Babette and Morey Dell, and mechanic Gypsy.
