All 22 episodes from the fifth season of the US comedy series following the relationship between 30-something single mother Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and her teen daughter Rory (Alexis Bledel), who have such a close relationship that they are often mistaken for sisters. Episodes comprise: 'Say Goodbye to Daisy Miller', 'A Messenger, Nothing More', 'Written in the Stars', 'Tippecanoe and Taylor, Too', 'We Got Us a Pippi Virgin', 'Norman Mailer, I'm Pregnant', 'You Jump, I Jump, Jack', 'The Party's Over', 'Emily Says Hello', 'But Not As Cute As a Pushkin', 'Women of Questionable Morals', 'Come Home', 'Wedding Bell Blues', 'Say Something', 'Jews and Chinese Food', 'So... Good Talk', 'Pulp Friction', 'To Live and Let Diorama', 'But I'm a Gilmore!', 'How Many Kropogs to Cape Cod?', 'Blame Booze and Melville' and 'A House Is Not a Home'.
Gilmore rising: Lorelai. The Dragonfly Inn is a huge success. And Lorelai's romance with Luke (the just-gotta-be relationship fans have waited for!) steams up Stars Hollow. Gilmore going down: Rory. College, boys and career plans crash and burn, leaving the once-confident golden girl reeling. Fasten your seat belt for a fabulously funny and heartbreakingly dramatic Season 5. The wit, charm and eccentricity that have created legions of Gilmore Girls devotees are on glorious display in all 22 episodes of the hit series' fifth year. Adding more sparkle is the brilliant array of totally off-kilter, totally engaging supporting characters: Sookie, Paris, Lane, Kirk, Michel, the imperious Gilmore pere et mere and a townful more. See you in Stars Hollow!

Here's why: Gilmore Girls is special. It's safe, and warm and sleepily beautiful. The opening credits with the wall of Autumnal leaves set the tone: in Stars Hollow, nothing bad could ever happen. Partly because the town is immune, and partly because the world they inhabit is a kinder, better world than the real one.
Spending time with Lorelai and Rory and the community there is like being hugged while lying in front of an open fire; it's hearing rain against your window on a Saturday afternoon and being snuggled under your favourite vintage crochet blanket with your favourite book; it's the journey home from work knowing you're now on holiday for 2 weeks... none of the world's cynicism bled into Stars Hollow, and that's what made it wonderful, and magical.
But it started to veer off in season 4, with Rory going off to college. It invited the "real world" into the show, and fundamentally altered its dynamics. Even so, it managed to hold onto its small town warmth in many ways, so it was still a lovely watch.
Season 5, though, is almost unrecongisable. There's a degree of harshness that's crept in... some of the jokes are spiteful and vindictive, where before Lorelai was always sarcastic, but never mean. It's almost as if someone has opened a door, and let in the cold air.Read more ›
We start with where last season left us, Rory and Dean sleeping together despite Dean being married. Lorelai falls out with Rory over this and sadly, my love for Rory and Dean plummeted during this story line. It's not only because of the affair... people make mistakes and I'm not saying someone can't come back from doing something like that eventually, but in this case, the way this story is done just made both characters so hateful in my eyes. Rory couldn't care less about Dean's wife until the point where she sees her in a butchers shop almost having a nervous breakdown over a meal she wants to make for Dean. Even worse, the once lovable and charming Dean devolves into a horrible adulterous husband with anger issues. We get more insight into Dean's married life this season and it's actually really sad. Each scene is basically as follows: Dean's wife runs herself ragged trying to make him happy, Dean treats her like absolute crap, she comes close to bursting into tears, Dean either storms off or sticks a "sorry, just stressed with work" band aid over it until next time. If I'm meant to be routing for Rory and Dean while his wife is meant to be the obstacle that I shake my fist at; the writers did a bad job. If it was intended to show a realistic example of how adultery can hurt everyone, the writers did a good job, but I think they seriously underestimated how horrid Dean and Rory would look.Read more ›
