Fins In The Water On The WB
I hate to say it, but I think that the Dames de Gilmore might just be firing up the outboard and strapping on the skis. Who would have thought that with Rory aging so gracefully, they would feel the need to bring in a young, smart, wise-cracking girl to take her place?
The minute our ungainly heroine popped up in the diner with her smart mouth and stupid helmet I started to flash back to the days of Raven Symone on the Cosby Show. You know--once Rudy Huxtable lost her cute they brought in the second-string. I see many convoluted episodes of April bonding with Luke, chatting with Lorelei and making scientific wedding favours.
I am only disappointed that the writers passed up the golden opportunity. The Science Fair scene would have been peerless if he had actually said "I am your father. Luke."
