    Currently, I'm watching season two on DVD.

    For those who don't know about the "Gilmore Girls," it's a now-canceled TV series about a single mother and her teenage daughter who live in Stars Hollow, a quirky little town outside Hartford, Conn. The mother, Lorelai Gilmore, is young, gorgeous, witty, talks a mile a minute, loves movies and TV and eats like a horse.
