Gilmore Girls is an American comedy drama series created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, starring Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel. On October 5, 2000, the series debuted on The WB and was cancelled in its seventh season, ending on May 15, 2007 on The CW. The show follows single mother Lorelai Victoria Gilmore (Graham) and her daughter Lorelai "Rory" Leigh Gilmore (Bledel) living in the fictional New England town of Stars Hollow, Connecticut, located approximately thirty minutes from Hartford, Connecticut.
As signalled by its tagline "Life's short. Talk Fast", the show is known for its fast-paced dialogue filled with pop-culture references, which has drawn comparisons with the writing of Aaron Sorkin and David Mamet.
The series explores issues of family, friendship and romance, as well as generational divides and social class. Ambition, education and work also form part of the series' central concerns, telling Lorelai's story from pregnant teen runaway and highschool drop-out to co-owner and manager of the Dragonfly Inn. Rory's transition from public school to the prestigious preparatory school, Chilton, is similarly followed by the series, exploring her ambition to study at Harvard University and become a foreign correspondent. The show's social commentary manifests most clearly in Lorelai's difficult relationship with her wealthy upper-class parents, Emily and Richard Gilmore, and in the interaction between students at Chilton, and later, Yale University.
The show placed #32 on Entertainment Weekly "New TV Classics" list, and in 2007 it was listed as one of Time magazine's "100 Best TV Shows of All-TIME."
