- Michel Gerard: (played by Yanic Truesdale) a French concierge who works at the Independence Inn with Lorelai and Sookie
What to watch for as a newbie while watching the marathon (Oct. 4) and series reboot on Monday through Friday, each weeknight beginning Oct. 5:
- Each Gilmore episode is chock full of pop culture references
- Each episode of Gilmore Girls has at least 2 to 3 literary references
- A enormous amount of coffee is consumed during the show. Rory, is the lone holdout, she prefers soft drinks
- A great deal of pizza, junk food and chinese food is consumed, along with burgers and pancakes
For fans and news fans alike: When watching the marathon…why not try?
- See how many pop culture references you can find in each episode: For example, the pilot references over 14 different music, books, and popular culture items. How many can you find?
- As I said, the characters drink a LOT of coffee. Why not view the marathon with a group of friends and take a sip of coffee each time someone in the show does? (Use good sense…LOL!)
- Order pizza and chinese food whenever you watch on Monday through Friday Nights at 7 & 8PM (ET)
- Read all the books, listen to all the music and watch all the movies mentioned in the series. You can google various lists (they tend to differ from list to list).
