Ankle, Gilmore Girls and wicked Tommy [Feb. 16th, 2017|06:56 pm]
tasabian
Five months after I broke the ankle, I continue to go to physiotherapy three times a week. The progress sometimes seems very slow, but I am getting there. Today, the physiotherapist reminded me of how swollen the foot was when it first came out of "the boot." Now I can see veins and when I get massaged, the physio can feel bones! The foot is no longer a big fleshy brick.

One of my more comical exercises is rubbing different substances on my foot to help wake up the nerve endings. So far I've tried: a feather, a sponge, a cat (several times) a spoon, sand paper, tv remote. Chances are, if you visit my house and pick up an object, at some point it will have been rubbed on my foot.

While recovering, I've watched a lot of Gilmore Girls. It was a good show for this purpose as I wasn't especially invested in it. (Have been purposefully avoiding any show or movie that will make me sad or angry.) If I had been watching the show when it first aired, I suspect I would have been out of synch with the fandom, as Jason "Digger" is my favourite of the boyfriends and I really hate the grandfather. Love Edward Herrman but the character is a mean, pompous old git.

Gilmore Girls question: should I jump ship at the S4 finale? Are the latter seasons worth watching at all?

On another note, via dawnybee , look at this sexy creature, wicked spark in his eye!

Michael, in my preferred outfit on him: classic white T. He's looking upwards because he's singing "Love in an Elevator" but let's pretend he's ogling Tom in the pic above.

Well opinions are mixed all round really, the general sentiment is that seasons 1-3 are the best ones, some people really dislike season 4, some really dislike season 5, while others consider seasons 4 or 5 their favourites. Seasons 6 and 7 are the ones that nearly all fans agree really weren't as good. And it's not that season 6 is bad exactly, it just gets really miserable and bogged down in Luke/Lorelai drama. It's just not fun to binge-watch in the same way as the early years are, and then season 7 is when they bring in a new showrunner, so the writing isn't great that season

And I personally really enjoyed the Netflix revival, but again opinions do seem to be mixed on that, some people apparently absolutely hated it and it completely ruined the characters for them...

Thanks! I just watched the S4 finale and was happy Luke & Lorelai got together but bored by Rory and her boy troubles.

I love Paris - does she get a good plotline in S5? Might keep going for her. Also am enjoying the relationship of Lane and her mother.

Paris definitely gets some very good storylines as the show goes on! Lane's plots are more mixed tbh, but her relationship with her mother does continue to develop. I think season 5 is worth a watch overall
