emily on the plane was good stuff!

but the "luke-twist"? why couldn't it just be kirk?

i'm still enjoying it but i think (for me) the show has always been about the hilarious lines and smaller interactions than the larger story arc. The Wisteria Lane/drama queen comment? I'm not afraid of it anymore? Sookie's expression and 'yes that was it' to Jackson after the Luke and Lorelei fight? and yeah, i agree with Marc that the plane conversation was good stuff.

i guess i just feel like it's the end of the series and i'll still keep watching it, even if it gets really bad. i want to see what happens to them, no matter how annoying rory is and no matter how many illegitimate kids show up.

i've really liked this season thus far. last night wasn't so great overall though and doesn't bode well for the future.

luke has a kid? that is the best the writers could do to put a wrench in the wedding plans?

christopher is now a multi-millionaire? give me a break.

but i liked rory living with lane. i liked the emily freaks out and richard has to deal with it. i liked when he confronted her friends helping her move out.

last night seems like a bad omen.

and i don't like that i'm not getting the references anymore. a desperate housewives reference? what? remember when they used to reference vu or the buzzcocks? not that they wouldn't have watched trash in the early parts of the series but it would have been made clear that it was for trash purposes not pop culture mainstream reasons. i don't even know if i'm making sense.

emily on the plan was indeed good stuff. emily is ALWAYS good stuff. but the science fair scene came after that. and as a story line that just blows.

the desperate housewives reference was sadly the only one i got. and that's from reading EW, not watching the show.

Jumped the shark is a little strong....

Dan the references have always run the gamut to obscure to pop, the wisteria lane stuff was great....planbreaker highlighted some good stuff...

I would be way mad about Luke's kid IF i didnt love that little actress she seemed great to me and might save the story line....Luke has sucked this year thats the problem.....He should tell Loreli right away, who is she to judge and she seems like a match made in heaven with Rory/Loreli. I foress way to much angst about this which is what I dont like... AND Luke, a chimney starter is not a GADGET! That was the lamest moment for me...

Youthlarge: It jumped the shark with the first episode. Blagh.

How can you people stand the "witty" machine-gun banter? Bleeegh. Nobody talks like that in real life. I'm willing to concede that some people might not go 20 seconds without a pop-culture reference. Hey: That's just the times we live in now. But it's like one of them can barely finish before the other one starts talking. Doesn't matter who is involved in the dialogue. These speech patterns are not natural.

I shudder every time the girl comes over to watch the episodes I DVR for her in case she misses it.

hater larry: i agree with you. luke has been a total weenie this season. he's become a shell of his former self. and you are such a softie (luke's illegitimate daughter)!

adam: normally i would not celebrate such hard words from hater larry, but it's totally deserved in this case! you are crazy, uninformed and just plain wrong on this one.

other than wisteria lane, did anyone get any of the other references? i thought it was overkill in this past episode. let's use an obscure metaphor instead of writing real dialogue. boo!

OK. I'm happy to be the villian in this case. —Adam "Sharkfood" K.
