Latest Obsession: Gilmore Girls

The television series, Gilmore Girls, is now running on Israeli Channel Three, and I have become addicted to the show. Not only because the star is a Barnard graduate, and I am a proud alumna, but because it portrays a woman who has raised a wonderful daughter as a single parent.

And the other characters are quirky and the dialogue is sharp.

I don't delude myself into thinking that television is real life, but it is not often that a single mother situation is portrayed in such a positive light, and that comforts me. It is a hell of a lot better than watching shows like Friends, which remind me of my miserable single days on the Upper West Side in The City.
