Got my dn to start watching Gilmore Girls so we've been chatting about it.

This has probably been done to death but isn't Dean just an awful, horrible character?

He's possessive, jealous, moody, emotionally black-mailing Rory constantly...

And everyone loves him and panders to him.

In one episode he phones over 20 times in like two hours! And Lorelei encourages Rory to put up with that and even pander to it!!

It actually makes for pretty horrible viewing and I have told impressionable 16 year old niece that she should run very, very far from a boy like that!

Anyway, AIBU?

*Disclaimer: I'm aware there are far more faults with the show. I am also aware that it is entirely fictional, and that I have no life!

Dean is a horrible character. His emotionally abusive to Rory, basically stalks her several times and makes her think she'll never do any better than him.

I've never understood why the rest of the town liked him, apart from luke of course, the only one not fooled by deans shiny hair.

I love a gilmore girl thread.grin

Yes! Luke is the only one with a bit of sense.

I was always quite partial to Logan. I'm ignoring the Netflix series

All of her boyfriends were emotionally absusive swine. Even Paul!

Dean also had unfortunate hair and a collection of terrible leather jackets.
Rory treated him like shit with the whole Jess thing.

MadMags Sun 20-Aug-17 23:18:01

Rory didn't cover herself in glory but I really don't blame her! He was suffocating her!!!

And they were just kids, which made it worse!

And, while I'm ranting, Lorelei was quite horrible to a lot of people! I love her but she was soooo self-involved.

DearMrDilkington Sun 20-Aug-17 23:19:29

I always loved Jess. Logan was ok but I think he brought out the worst in Rory. Grown up jess was the perfect match for her.

IfyouseeRitaMoreno Sun 20-Aug-17 23:20:18

I know. I feel embarrassed at how much I used to like it considering how awful Lorelai was.

DearMrDilkington Sun 20-Aug-17 23:20:37

I'm not keen on Rory or Lorelai, they're both people I'd hate in RL. I mainly watch gilmore girls for luke and the weird town folk. grin

MadMags Sun 20-Aug-17 23:21:14

Grown up Jess was much better. I loved how he called her out on her shit when she dropped out of Yale.

Which reminds me...the way they all act like she's permanently 8 really bugs me! She's quite the spoiled brat, actually.

MadMags Sun 20-Aug-17 23:22:07

Luke, Sukie, and Miss Patty are the only real reasons to watch it! wink

VictoriaMcdade Sun 20-Aug-17 23:22:45

Team Jess!

SymphonyofShadows Sun 20-Aug-17 23:22:48

Jess was my favourite too. Dean was horrible to his wife, cheating on her with Rory, who was a complete brat.

Blondielongie Sun 20-Aug-17 23:25:28

Dean was a twat.

Hope not to spoil, but I didn't like Rory in the new episodes.

Love Alexis Beldl in Madmen and A Handmaids Tale.

tissuesosoft Sun 20-Aug-17 23:25:45

Dean was a nasty shit! Team Jess here too

MadMags Sun 20-Aug-17 23:27:34

Rory turned into her mother in the new episodes. In all the negative ways!

However, Emily was superb!

Happytobefree17 Sun 20-Aug-17 23:28:15

Deffo team Jess. He is her true love IMO

MadMags Sun 20-Aug-17 23:30:49

Logan was very pretty, though. And I do think he grew to really love her, more than she loved him.

I'm very pleased she didn't just give everything up to marry him.

Dean had literally NO redeeming features. None.

KickAssAngel Sun 20-Aug-17 23:57:37

I think that Luke is also pretty horrendous. I know that he does a lot for other people, but the amount that he shouts at people must make him awful to be around - plus, it would give me a headache.

MadMags Sun 20-Aug-17 23:59:52

The only thing that annoyed me about Luke is when he extended the apartment for Jess, he kept it open plan!


StickThatInYourPipe Mon 21-Aug-17 00:02:59

Team Jess all the way! Both old and new! blush hated Logan and Dean

In RL the one I would go for is Zac though! 100%

MadMags Mon 21-Aug-17 00:15:31

I would too, Stick grin

IneedaMagnum Mon 21-Aug-17 00:27:57

I'm a little bit in love with Logan. He's perfect imo.

MadMags Mon 21-Aug-17 00:30:12

He looked very lovely in a suit, I must say.

Bumshkawahwah Mon 21-Aug-17 00:33:56

I always had a bit of a crush on Jess, and now I LOVE him in This Is Us (not as Jess, obviously)

Hiphopopotamus Mon 21-Aug-17 00:37:22

How could anyone choose Zac over the perfect Dave Radowski! (Or Ragowski confused )
