is this the only season 2 apprecation thread? I'm surprised there are no posts!

i put a guide in the second post like i did for the first season. :) i will be starting season 2 very soon!

**Anja** 10-11-2015 07:23 AM

I guess there wasn't..
Thanks for making one, it looks good..

Lindsay 10-11-2015 07:47 AM

Thanks for the guide! Yeah I believe this is the only S2 thread.

Alexa 10-11-2015 01:22 PM

i watched 201. In general it was kind of a boring episode imo but it felt similar to season 1, like a continuation, not a new season so i like that.

i didnt like all the wedding stuff and thought it was very fast so i wasn't happy with it.

richard was a total jerk in how he was talking to dean. i dont blame rory for going off on him.

episode 2 was a lot better, i loved the lorelai and emily argument. thats my favorite thing about the show, how real it can be with the family relationships.

dean was once again whiney. :lol: he never seems happy.

luke watching lorelai with max was sad.

Lindsay 10-13-2015 09:28 AM

I always felt bad for Luke when he saw them together.

Talula78 10-13-2015 03:33 PM

I cried sad shipper tears in that moment! :bawl:

Alexa 10-13-2015 11:16 PM

episode 3 was a fun one, i liked seeing the girls go out together.

it was sad seeing lorelai realize that she didnt really love max but it had to happen. they weren't right for one another and I'm glad she realized it. and i understand hw she felt. a part of me would miss just having me and my daughter in the house too!

on her call with chris she had more chemistry i felt. i really do like chris this time around. i was surprised he wasnt more upset about the wedding though considering the last time we saw him he wanted to get back together with lorelai.

luke making the arch for her was adorable. every episode there is something cute for L/L i love the build up.

the ending at the stop light was hilarious.

episode 4 was great, i love how good of a friend sookie is, despite making the whole cake.

i loved seeing luke all happy after he heard that the wedding was off. :love:

episode 5
.... JESS! :love:

he's such a punk at first but i am going to love watching him grow. i didnt like that luke just let him smoke.

his interaction with rory was great right off the bat, so much chemistry there. and love how he immediately opened up to her. the ending scene with them was just great. imo they have so much more chemistry then she ever had with dean!

luke was a big jerk in the episode too. but I'm glad he came around. pushing jess in the lake was hilarious. :lol:

episode 6:

i really liked seeing chris this episode, its great that he seemingly has his life together! i love that he got the dictionary for rory and also a car. and i am glad he has a new g/f.

the ending scene with lorelai and her mom was so sweet.

Talula78 10-15-2015 07:40 AM

Wow! You're plowing right through those episodes, Alex! :eek: I, too, love the LL build up! :sigh: :love: It's that slow burn that really turns into something profound later on.

You THINK Chris has it all together. :rolleyes: He puts on a good show, that's for sure.

And I was SO pleased to see Luke push Jess in the water, he deserved it! It made for a pretty hilarious moment in the show, too. :lol:

Alexa 10-15-2015 03:39 PM

yeah it was hilarious. :lol: we haven't seen much jess since, i want more!

i am going fast jen! I'm loving this rewatch.

episode 7 was okay, not my favorite but i did like lorelai telling luke not to date the hilton mom! :love: and i also liked rory telling off the headmaster and him actually listening to her. he's so condescending!

fox24 10-16-2015 11:19 AM

I am not Jess biggest fan but I love the lake scene

Alexa 10-16-2015 12:23 PM

episode 8 was okay. i liked seeing the inn owner but I'm tired of lorelai's freak outs. sometimes she acts like a teenager.

it sucks they weren't sold the other inn but i am glad they are deciding to move forward.

finally we got another jess/rory scene :yay: and love how they talk to each other.

Talula78 10-16-2015 04:17 PM

I'm jealous of your rewatch! :lol: Lately, I haven't had time for one cuz I'm trying to plough through The Good Wife so I can catch up & start deleting the new epis off the DVR. You're talking about scenes & things I barely remember, it's been so long since my last rewatch. :blush:
