"That was the pitch that sold the show to The WB and birthed a perfect television idyll: an ideal relationship placed within an ideal community that we were all, supposedly, too jaded/media-savvy to respond to. Hah. Millions of us not only did, we yearned for that damn fantasy. (Viewers) definitely wanted to live in that it-takes-a-village-without-Starbucks, Stars Hollow."
I never watched this show, but as mothers day is coming up, seeing this made me realize that this was true for me too. my mother is the person i looked up to growing up, and the person i most wanted to be like. and im not sure she ever knew that. I still look up to her to this day :) everyday i say or do something that makes me think " Jeez, that sounded just like my mother..." and i have to smile :)
