Spoilers for Gilmore Girls! Don’t get me wrong, Gilmore Girls is one of my absolute favourite shows. I have a regular rewatch about this time every year, and around the second year, I lost all sympathy for Paris Geller- despite being Rory’s roommate.
Oh, where to begin. She throws a party that Rory really doesn’t want and looks incredibly un-enjoyable (Paris is definitely the type of person to be obsessing over everyone using a coaster for their drinks), never-mind dating Rory’s lecturer, despite him being twice, maybe three times their age?
‘You’re in college, Paris!’ I scream at my laptop, ‘almost everyone there is your own age except him!’ She doesn’t seem to give a second thought as to how awkward that might be for Rory in seminars, let alone at the dinner table with her grandfather, since he and the professor are friends.
Where does she keep all her arts and crafts ‘creations’?
And the crafts table…I wouldn’t call myself a clean freak, but I like things tidy- I don’t want to imagine the regular mess from that. Also, where does she keep all her arts and crafts ‘creations’? I don’t remember seeing many pasta frames or paper-chain necklaces around their dorm room at all?
All I can say is, thank God we don’t have to share rooms. I like to be able to work in my own room, not hear a roommate arguing to her boyfriend on the phone half the time, *coughs* Paris.
