Extravagant Detours[edit]

You waste a LONG graf right at the beginning talking about a spinoff????? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.217.157.164 (talk) 09:31, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Kirk's Last Name[edit]

I would like to know the source for "Gleason" as kirk's last name. I didn't know that was it. Which episode was this revealed in, as I thought a running Joke was that Kirk never revealed his Last name. In the First-Fourth season DVD boxes, under The cast list, it only refers to him as Kirk, with everyone else having a last name. J-stan 19:40, 2 August, 2006.

Jlahorn 00:37, 4 August 2006 (UTC) imdb.com, tv.com, amazon.com, answers.com, entertainment.com... I don't know where they got it from, but it didn't originate here.

According to a TV.com trivia item on Sean Gunn, "Kirk wasn't given a last name until the third season episode 'One Has Class and the Other One Dyes' [sic] when Lane mentioned his rock band's name, The Kirk Gleason Five." Can someone check this out? TV.com's trivia section isn't a reliable source, given that anyone can edit it as long as they participate in the discussion boards. (Case in point: the correct episode title is "One's Got Class and the Other One Dyes".) But a quotation from the primary source material would be reliable. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 03:28, 4 August 2006 (UTC)
His last name is indeed Gleason. To quote from the relevant episode:
LANE: Once, a guy in our town named Kirk was practicing Bohemian Rhapsody with his band, the Kirk Gleason Five, and my mom shut them down so fast that the band fled without their instruments and never came back for them. To this day, Kirk can’t listen to Queen without tearing up.
Daydream believer2 20:13, 10 August 2006 (UTC)
Hmmm, that's a bit iffy. It sounds like there is no direct connection to our favorite Kirk, like pointing to him or saying "Kirk, the guy who... [does something we've seen]". I'm sure the writers intended us to think of jack-of-all-trades Kirk, but my opinion is not a wiki-reliable source, nor is that of any other viewers of the show. I would suggest handling this by identifying him as "Kirk Gleason" with a footnote that reads something like:
As of [whatever date], Kirk's surname has yet to be explicitly stated on the show. However, Lane Kim refers to "a guy in our town named Kirk" with a band named "The Kirk Gleason Five" in a conversation in "One's Got Class and the Other One Dyes", and IMDb and other sources appear to have picked up on this indirect identification.
I'd also like to describe the scene, instead of just saying "in a conversation", for the sake of easier verification. How's this sound? ~ Jeff Q (talk) 02:30, 11 August 2006 (UTC)
To clarify it a little more, Lane was arguing with the members of her band over practicing in town, where her mother could find them. The characters she was talking to, at the time, didn't know Kirk at all. I'd argue that it was more than implied, but simply logical. Her "a guy in our town" comment was the most logical way of describing him to people who didn't know anything. Like if, say, Jerry Seinfeld was telling someone about "a guy in my building, Kramer", we're automatically to assume it meant Cosmo Kramer rather than thinking there could be someone else with the same name.
Of course I see your point, however, I'm just unsure as to how arguable the fact really is. Daydream believer2 03:28, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

In the episode guide that came with the Season 4 DVD set, his name was listed as Kirk Gleason.--Dani 21:12, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

Everyone, feel free to hack apart what I've done to the plot section...I don't know if the bullets were a good idea or not, but those sections just seemed to lend themselves that way. I've already reworded some things to try to make them more encyclopedia-ey. I also don't know where to put this: "Lorelai, who was engaged to Luke, was frustrated by his keeping his newly-discovered daughter (April) from her, and their relationship is on the rocks." If someone could stick it in / revise it where appropriate, that'd be awesome! Also, I think we could enrich the "other characters" section... jen - 16 April 2007

Reoccuring Characters[edit]

Should Lane's husband be on the list? He's been in more recent episodes.

-Zach, you mean? He definetely should be. He's on just as often as other people on that list. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.189.130.131 (talk) 01:22, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

I agree as well, Zach is a major character --Banime (talk) 20:47, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Richard Gilmore[edit]

Could someone please research and find out why Edward Herrmann continues to be listed as a "Guest Star"?!?! 'Emily' is not so why is he!?!? This has been driving me crazy since I noticed it about four seasons ago! Might be a good tidbit for a "Trivia" section :) 204.49.209.110 12:46, 12 April 2007 (UTC)Bhmyers

I believe on one of the DVD specials, or somewhere they said they were lucky to get Edward Herrman. I think that part of the stipulation of him agreeing to be on the show is to be listed as "Special appearance by." It happens in a lot of movies and such where they will list a load of actors and then one special one (on The King of Queens for instance, they list all the actors and then at the end list "And Jerry Stiller as Arthur." I think it's a weird thing of contracts. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 24.17.34.222 (talk) 00:55, 14 April 2007 (UTC).
Yeah, Richard does appear alot, so your point is understood, but I think there's a line between so many episodes to be considered a "star" and then considered a "recurring character". But, he does have a slot on the opening credits, so I guess that's all we can ask for Fanfiction.addiction 06:24, 25 July 2007 (UTC)
Edward Herrman is not listed as a guest star. HagermanBot is correct in that it is a contractual thing that he is listed differently than the others. He was still a regular. From what I can tell these special titles like this are usually awarded actors that are slightly higher profile than the other cast members but not necessarily the main star of the show such as the Jerry Stiller example above. --Samuronin (talk) 03:11, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

This "special appearance" has to do with the way he gets paid, it allows more flexibility. WIth experienced actors doing tv you will often see this. But I know, money, money, money, that is what it all comes down to. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.34.197.111 (talk) 16:38, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

Logan proposing to Rory[edit]

Ok, if the end of Season 7 hasn't aired yet how is it known that Logan propses to rory and why isn't there a spoiler warning?Yayamaya 23:38, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for saying something. Remember to sign all your posts. 60.242.31.143 10:34, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

Why does this show have to end? I love this show.

Actually, as another point, I feel like the series finale is getting way too much weight in this article. It was one episode of how many? 150? But its plot points seem to be getting almost a quarter of the space of a number of sections. The finale is more important than the average episode, but certainly not *that* important.
AdjectiveAnimal 06:27, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

Present tense for show[edit]

Everyone, let's please stop changing the lead sentence to read "Gilmore Girls was", because it "is". Contrary to the beliefs of some editors, one does not say a show "was" just because it has been completed. This is just as true for a TV series as it is for a book or a play. One doesn't say Hamlet: Prince of Denmark was a Shakespearean play; it is and always will be. It was written and has been performed. Likewise, Gilmore Girls was created and has been ended, but it still is a TV series. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 04:10, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

Well, there's really no continuity regarding this on Wikipedia. Certain TV shows that "are" TV series but have ended are written about in the past tense (e.g. Dallas and M*A*S*H) while others are not. Grammatically, I believe both are correct, although I can't be sure. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 71.146.109.92 (talkcontribs) 00:47, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
If you mean "consensus" within Wikipedia, the present-tense expectation follows the official guideline Wikipedia:Manual of Style (writing about fiction), under "Presentation of fictional material". There will always be Wikipedia articles that don't follow style guidelines, but this is not an excuse to ignore them in any particular article. Each article is improved individually by its editors.
"Continuity" usually refers to reasonable flow of information or events within a discrete work — in this case, within the article. I haven't examined the current version of the entire article, which I'm sure is undergoing many continuity-thwarting small updates with the end of the series. But if you want to improve continuity for an article that uses the standard "out-of-universe" perspective but also includes "in-universe" material, I'd suggest reviewing the aforementioned guideline. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 03:13, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

Episode Needed[edit]

"In an episode of Scrubs, it's revealed that Turk and J.D. watch the show on their night off. After watching the show, Turk calls J.D. over the phone to discuss it. Turk: "Mothers and daughters... they speak so fast, but they speak so true." J.D.: "I'm so mad at Lorelai, I can't even speak right now."[episode needed]"

The episode is His Story II #3.18

First Appearance of Sean Gunn[edit]

While Sean Gunn is known for his outrageous character "Kirk" on Gilmore Girls, his first appearance on the show was acting as a DSL man ,sent by Emily Gilmore, going by the name of Mick.

Yeah that's right, in the first or second episode he is called 'Mick', I remembered that puzzled me too. Maybe it was only for the pilot and his role was rewritten later.84.196.48.46 (talk) 18:05, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Cleaning up DVD releases section[edit]

I've changed the countries in this article, section: dvd-release. I've changed the UK and Norway into Europe UK, and Europe Norway (since they both are part of Europe). Europe itself is changed into Continental Europe (every country in Europe, excluding the UK and Ireland (and depending on your point of view it could also exclude Scandinavia, Iceland and Finland). I wanted to set this straight, because with almost everything it seems that some people in the UK consider themselves as something else, other than European (when in fact they are very much so). Second of all: should Norway be excluded in the list of dvd-releases? I included the Netherlands in the section of season 6 (since in the Netherlands this season came out on a different date than in the UK, Continental Europe or Norway). But I have my doubts about that; what if every country on this planet will be represented in this list? Perhaps the releasedates of Norway (and the Netherlands) can be added in the section of Continental Europe?--84.104.123.100 15:17, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

I recently fixed some bad markup in the DVD releases section. However, I did notice that with the addition of the Netherlands to the release dates for seasons 6 and 7 and the complete show box set release, the table rows for those DVD sets are too wide - anyone running a lower resolution than 1280x1024 is going to probably have to scroll sideways to read those. Would anyone be against it if I moved the country icon and country name under the "Europe" heading on the release dates sections to take up less horizontal space? Shifuimam 07:51, 22 July 2007 (UTC)
I think that's the same thing that I proposed (see #6 on this talkpage), but note that the Netherlands has a different releasedate than the UK and Norway. I would like to see that the several releasedates in Europe (UK, Norway, Netherlands, etc.) are all combined in one section (Europe). Would that be possible? I think that would solve the problem. --Robster1983 10:44, 1 August 2007 (UTC)
P.s. I put my proposal in this section, for it is about the same thing; the DVD-section in the article. --Robster1983 10:49, 1 August 2007 (UTC)
Are the aspect ratios listed correct? I don't know about the DVDs but E4 have the 5th season onwards in 16:9 widescreen, so I think it would be unlikely at least the PAL DVDs are different to this. --13:31, 11 January 2010 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 194.125.126.49 (talk)

Mentioning dates and cancellation in lead paragraph[edit]

Although it may be redundant to have dates in both the infobox and introduction, I think it should be mentioned in both because upon reading the lead sentence, it is not clear that the show is cancelled (one possible reason why people keep trying to say Gilmore Girls was instead of is). The WikiProject Television guidelines do allow this information to be included in the introduction. JYi 18:32, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

The Gilmore Girls in popular culture - unlisted occurrence in House MD S03E15[edit]

In episode 15 of season 3 of House MD there is a scene where Cameron wants to get some of his blood using her feminine charms. Cameron kisses House and while kissing she wants to draw some blood with a needle hidden in her pocket. Unfortunately House becomes aware of her plan before she can carry it out. In the discussion following her discovery he tells her to look up his patient files under some number and 'under the name of Luke and Lorelai'

This is my first time trying to contribute and I have no idea how it works, so I had the idea to post this bit of information here to inspire someone to post it in the real article that just wouldn't be complete without this tremendously important information. 212.17.73.75 (talk) 21:13, 7 February 2008 (UTC) Lily IP

Cloversmom (talk) 20:57, 22 May 2021 (UTC)

He actually says 'under the name of Luke and Laura' which is presumably a reference to General Hospital.

Spoilers[edit]

Is there anyway to inform readers that this page contains spoilers. These spoilers are things like what happens at the seventh season. This hasn't come out yet it places like Australia and people that read this article are unaware of the info it contains. Is there a way to fix this?---- —Preceding unsigned comment added by Heytaytay99 (talkcontribs) 11:14, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

No, because it's fairly common knowledge that reading character/plot sections would impart spoilers, due to the inherent nature of character sheets and plot synopses. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.33.59.183 (talk) 01:37, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Is/Was[edit]

Let's not start climbing the Reichstag over whether the Gilmore Girls is or was a TV Series. Both versions are used on Wikipedia and both are correct, depending on your point of view. -Duribald (talk) 12:16, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Lorelai wears contacts or not?[edit]

In the second episode of the first season (perhaps first or third, but definetely one of those) Lorelai complains about putting her contacts in backwards to Sookie. But in a later season, when she is talking to Rachel (Luke's ex-girlfriend), Rachel says she has pretty eyes, and asks if Lorelai wears contacts. Lorelai says No. She is also wearing glasses sometimes, but not always. (Which could be that she just doesn't have anything half the time, but maybe not) This has bothered me for actually at least a year so I would really like to know the deal.. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.189.130.131 (talk) 01:17, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

I think it was just her not bothering to put in her contacts that day. --Banime (talk) 20:48, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

When Rachel asks if she is wearing contacts in reference to the color/attractiveness of her eyes, she is most likely asking specifically if she wears color contacts because of the intense blue of her eyes. Lorelei likely understands that the underlying point of her question was in reference to the color of her eyes, and therefor responds appropriately. Since she mentions wearing them on other occasions and is also seen wearing glasses, it is very likely that she does wear them, but responds negatively to the question because the color of her eyes is not altered by her contacts. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.18.21.227 (talk) 23:57, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

Edit[edit]

I took this out of the Luke/Lorelai section: "At one point Lorelai and Luke come home drunk and have sex. Lorelai later realizes she may be pregnant, but it is a false alarm."

Although I admit I haven't seen the show in quite a while, I'm pretty sure this would have stuck out in my mind. 97.96.182.234 (talk) 00:25, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Though it sounds rather tawdry the way it was phrased there, it's quite genuine. It happens near the end of the fifth series, coming at the same time as Sookie's baby. David Arthur (talk) 00:55, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Templates (May 11th)[edit]

Added refimprove, rewrite and copy editing.

The "Plot" section needs to be completely rewritten. It is currently made up of huge blocks of text with grammar errors on every sentence, and not a poor comma in sight to help you through a sentence with 50+ words. The production section is only slightly better, be needs a lot more references.

New Season[edit]

Today I saw a commerical on ABC Family that stated there would be a new season of Gilmore Girls, premiering on the 8th of June. My information is valid and other people have seen it as well. This is very important information that should be posted here. So that Fans can believe it. 71.58.107.112 (talk) 03:21, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Rory's age goof[edit]

i've found an interesting goof.in 1st episode Lorelai tells that Rory is 16.in ep. 4"deer hunters" Rory drives the car so she is really 16. in episode 6 she seebrares her...16th year!!!(i've counted candles). why have i written this?because i can't sleep !!!aand those who read this won't seep too! I am evil genious!!!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by MadMoovz (talkcontribs) 01:06, 24 August 2009 (UTC) hi all hope there is another 2-3 / 7.8.9. episodes of the series as it is captivating and Lorelia should make the jump to Luke and have some chldren to expand the programme even longer than just 2 moe series the uk misses the Gilmores all three segments Grandma Daughter and Grandchiild....come on usa get it on.

Taken from a Gilmore Girls trivia page: "In the beginning when Joey hits on Lorelai and Rory, Lorelai says Rory is only sixteen. Actually she is fifteen, not turning sixteen for a couple more months. While it is common for people to round up when discussing age, when a twenty something year old man is making a pass at Rory, you would think Lorelai would make a point of saying exactly how young she really is." Also, taken from "The Deer Hunters" page: "During this episode, Lorelai mentions that Rory is sixteen. However, "Rory's Birthday Parties" takes place after that episode, and Rory turns sixteen in it. Explanation: A parent will often round up their child's age as their birthday nears." Not sure about why she would be driving, though. 70.66.253.198 (talk) 00:54, 11 September 2013 (UTC)

Gilmore Girls[edit]

I'm quite new to the Gilmore Girls but am confused as to why Rory ended up going to Yale when her ambition was to go to Harvard —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.110.14.176 (talk) 23:59, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

Stated in the article here: "After much deliberation and with her mother's blessing, Rory ultimately decides to go to Yale (her grandfather's alma mater) instead of Harvard, even though she is accepted into both institutions as well as Princeton University in New Jersey." Rory made a list and the advantages of going to Yale outweighed the advantages going to Harvard. Also note that this is a forum about how to improve the article, not for general discussion of the show. --Jtalledo (talk) 02:38, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

Also, outside the plot, had Rory gone to Harvard, the show would have some difficulty keeping the momentum, as Rory would have left the state, not just Stars Hollow. By keeping her in the state, it maintained the closeness of Rory and Lorelai Xylogirl07 (talk) 21:51, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Family Guy[edit]

Thanks to Family Guy, I thought this show was about an older lipstick lesbian dating a younger lipstick lesbian. There's an episode of Family Guy that shows the two main characters kissing each other passionately.

Anyways, I know it's not a show about lesbians now, after watching a few episodes on ABC Family. But hey, Family Guy's naughty joke got me watching. Coffee5binky (talk) 04:01, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Plot[edit]

I've made a few changes to the page now, editing and rearranging things for clarity, then adding and rewriting some things: I hope nothing's too bold, but I'm inclined to agree with the tag suggesting a lot could be rewritten. For instance, pages for shows like How I Met Your Mother and One Tree Hill have brief outlines of each season's plot arcs, and I think this could be managed here. It would also serve to balance the current emphasis on the two leads' love-lives: there's loads more to the show than their romantic liasions, isn't there? The mother daughter relationships - including Lane and Mrs Kim - run throughout the season; the coming-of-age plot for Rory, including the feuding/friendship arc with Paris, her adjustment at Yale and its ups and downs; Lorelai's business trials and tribulations etc. Some of what I've added has been along these lines, chiefly to start to represent the series as the well-rounded one about family, ambition and finding a path in life, as well as the ongoing love-stories. I'd like to hear your opinions, and I propose someone could make a start on this, or I can in a little while --LadderCrime (talk) 11:59, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Plot holes and returning characters[edit]

There should be a section in this article about Gilmore Girl plot holes. For example, when Jess arrives to Stars Hollow, Luke says his father ran out on him two years ago, but in a later episode says his father left to get diapers for Jess and never returned. I have found some more here http://www.moviemistakes.com/tv3573

There are also certain characters who return as someone else, e.g. Gran (Marion Ross) returns as cousin Marilyn in the fourth and fifth seasons http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005385/ Graziana (talk) 15:22, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

Hello. This sounds interesting, but it seems like it falls under WP:MOSTV#Things to avoid, namely continuity errors/goofs. The second thing is noted in List of Gilmore Girls characters. --Jtalledo (talk) 21:54, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

In the episode about Logan’s birthday in season 7, Rory tells Logan they went ice skating in Central Park for her 12th birthday. Then in episode 20, Rory tells Lorelai “remember when I made you have my 12th birthday at the Mark Twain museum in Hartford.” Stephacastro (talk) 22:54, 14 March 2020 (UTC)

Rory's friends: Lane and Paris hate each other.[edit]

I don't know if they really hated each other but I remember watching the show and I rarely saw Lane & Paris in one scene together. They are both Rory's best friends yet they barely know each other? The only scene where I saw all three of them together was in the last season. Paris and Lane really didn't get along well. Should this be mentioned in the "Rory's friends" section? I think it would be great. Masterpeace3 (talk) 09:51, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

Greetings. Actually in Episode 18 Season 5 titled "To Live and Let Diorama," Paris and Lane cordially hang out with Rory while they collectively complain about their boy situations over a round of Ms. Patty's punch outside of the Twickum house. Although they don't know each other very well let alone hang out together, they do get along - McConnellsc58 (talk) 10:11 AM, 23 December 2014 Mcconnellsc58 (talk) 18:18, 23 December 2014 (UTC) — Preceding undated comment added 18:12, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Additional main cast[edit]

This cast box seems either a) inaccurate or b) confusing. For example, Paris and Dean didn't appear all of the seasons that are "blacked out". Either I'm reading the chart incorrectly or there has been some vandalism. This show has such devoted fans, I'm surprised to find such a glaring mistake.

Suggestions[edit]

Hello, I just had a few suggestions. I think that the page is great overall, but the section on revivals is a bit lengthy and redundant, could probably be shortened a bit. Also, I think including a section on some of the famous quotes and sayings from the show would make it even better! TheGerkinator94 (talk) 19:41, 5 November 2016 (UTC)

If the sayings really are "famous", each one would need a couple of references showing that journalists or TV critics have talked about it.—Anne Delong (talk) 18:09, 8 November 2016 (UTC)

Change of network section[edit]

In the section about the cancellation and change of network, there is a long quote praising the cast, etc. Is this appropriate? I believe that it should be paraphrased into just the neutral facts.—Anne Delong (talk) 18:06, 8 November 2016 (UTC)

Edward Herrmann[edit]

If we are going to put Edward Herrmann in the series regular category, he should at least have a note, considering that he is billed as a guest star. Or we should just put him in the recurring section, since he is technically a guest star.--Joef1234 (talk) 20:06, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

No, he is considered a main cast member regardless of the "special appearance by" credit, as he is featured and credited along with the main cast members in the opening title sequence. He is not a guest star nor recurring, as he is credited in every single episode even if he is absent. He qualifies as being apart of the main cast. MSMRHurricane (talk) 02:12, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

Also known as Gilmore Girls: A year in the life?[edit]

Prior to the new series revival on Netflix, the show was not known as Gilmore Girls: A year in the life. I think that the new "season" should be treated as a new show. Although it is a direct continuation of the original show story-wise, in terms of production it's not. As an example, the articles for Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z are not merged even though "Z" is a direct continuation of the original, just like this show.--MexTDT (talk) 16:20, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

The character table[edit]

John, Loeba, MyNameIsASDF; Hi all, let's discuss this dispute over the character table. I personally find it unnecessary for the descriptions to be present, as each of the main characters all have in-depth descriptions on their separate pages. It adds nothing to the table, and makes it look messy (in my opinion). Also, I feel the order should be by appearance, not status, therefore Sean Gunn should be listed before Milo Ventimiglia as Gunn appeared in the first season while Ventimiglia appeared in the second season, despite Ventimiglia being apart of the main cast in the second season and Gunn being recurring for the first two seasons. Let's not get into an edit war and resolve this issue before it gets out of hand. Cheers! MSMRHurricane (talk) 21:57, 31 August 2017 (UTC)

I think it's nonsensical to say that we don't need descriptions just because there is a character page - this is the parent article for all things GG, so everything should be summarised. The descriptions on the character page are huge and most people won't need a full bio, just an idea of who the character is. I also suspect this isn't the main concern because both of you left the character descriptions for the recurring cast - it's clearly because the descriptions are within the table, that's the issue. I think the table is useful as well because there were multiple changes to the main cast, but the descriptions are definitely more important...So I'll move the table to the character article and leave the character descriptions as a bullet list (like the recurring list). I think it's a shame but there we go. I don't feel that strongly about the Gunn/Ventimiglia thing, I thought it made more sense to go by addition to the main cast but it's really inconsequential so we can do it that order if you feel strongly. --Loeba (talk) 22:06, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
Loeba; Personally, short descriptions are no problem to me, I just found them to be overused by putting them in the table, as it was perfectly fine the it was. I think the bullet points with a quick description is better, much better, and moving the table to the characters page is also better. Mostly, it was just have the descriptions within the table that made it look messy and overused. However, I'm happy with the layout at this point. Thanks!

Cast and characters seasons[edit]

I have seen both - and – to show how many seasons a character has been in the show. Which is correct? Mobile mundo (talk) 22:39, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

Aspect ratios[edit]

According to IMDb, Gilmore Girls was released in both 4:3 and 16:9 formats. The Gilmore Girls Wiki clarifies: "From season 1 to season 4 the show was shot and presented in the traditional TV format [4:3], while season 5, 6 and 7 were shot and aired in a Widescreen format [16:9]." As far as the US DVD release goes, the GG Wiki says "Following creator Amy Sherman-Palladino's directives for the DVD release of the series, Gilmore Girls was published in the traditional 4:3 TV format - the 1.33: 1 aspect ratio - completely from season 1 to 7, also cutting on the use of the modern 5.1 surround audio format." --Jeremy Butler (talk) 13:43, 22 November 2020 (UTC)
