Gilmore Girls Elimination Game

Hi everyone! This game seems to be more of a fan favorite than the survival game, and I aim to please :) We start with a list of episodes, characters, relationships, scenes, or whatever else we feel like. Once per 24 hour period, you'll just vote on which ones to eliminate. I tally the votes and update the list once a day. Needless to say, the game gets increasingly tough as it goes on, as it's harder and harder to decide which beloved episodes, scenes etc. you're willing to vote out. 

Let's start out with episodes. Should we go season-by-season or do them all at once? I'm up for either option :)

Yay!  I think we should do season-by-season.  There are some sorta-good eps in the latter seasons that wouldn't have a chance against some of the more stellar eps of the earlier ones.

Good point! Then again, it also means that early episodes we adore will be eliminated a lot sooner than they would have if mixed in with those later seasons ;) 

How about we do one season at a time and then have a 'best of...' with the top 5ish episodes from each season...?

P.S. I Lo...and Love, Daisies and Troubadours are history, but we have a three-way tie for that final spot among TDDR. PiB and Christopher Returns. First person to come by and cast a vote against one of those three will break the tie! (Taryn and lulu, that person can totally be YOU!)

Hmmm...I'll go with Taryn: Paris is Burning, Kiss and Tell and Deer Hunters (I actually like Deer Hunters, but it's clearly doomed anyway, and I'm desperate to save Concertus and The Third Lorelai!)

L&W&S (just too much icky Max)

 

Hee---any amount of Max is usually too much Max for me :) Love and War and Snow is a weirdly mixed episode for me---there are a few scenes that I really, really love, and a bunch that I really, really don't! 

 

My votes: That Damn Donna Reed and Star-Crossed Lovers

It's funny how relatively few S1 episodes I'm attached to as compared to S2-S3. I like most of what's left but love only a few of them. By contrast, when we move on to S2 next, I'll be reminded of how pathetically attached I am to about 18 of the 22 episodes!

Rory's Dance and The Breakup Pt 2 are history! (I'm always so torn on Breakup Pat 2---I love some scenes beyond the telling of it, but then there's the unwelcome return of Max, which...ugh.) 

 

The next round is open! This is the last time we'll vote against two...

Yep, I guess it's come to it now.  Pilot and F&S from me too.

I know, right?  I always have to remind myself when I'm thinking about the ep (and whether or not I like it) that it's really supposed to be more about Rory, not Lorelai and Max.  Blah.

I was glad to find you guys after I'd written a sad goodbye at TWoP. I'm a little rusty on my GG episodes, but it's all coming back to me. It's Just Like Riding a Bike. :).
