It’s been over six years since the finale of Gilmore Girls, when we left Luke (Scott Patterson) serving Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel) in his diner, before the younger Girl set off on the campaign trail with then-Senator Obama. And even though Luke and Lorelai do get their happy ending — it still bothers me that at the end of the sixth season, she slept with Christopher (David Sutcliffe) and then married him in season 7. Seriously, it has kept me up at night. And here’s why. READ FULL STORY

Oy with the poodles already: One of our Gilmore Girls is getting married!
Alexis Bledel is engaged to marry her Mad Men co-star Vincent Kartheiser, EW has confirmed. While Bledel most recently spent a few episodes last season on Mad Men engaging in a brief and torrid affair with Pete Campbell, her happier Rory Gilmore days were filled with love triangles, books, and a ton of meals at Luke’s Diner. We got to reminiscing and we wondered what Lorelai – a woman of way more than a few words – would have to say to her daughter now that she’s engaged. P.S. We already know what Luke would wish for her: “If not a prince, someone who’s gonna be good for her….She can have adventures and be free, she’s smart. The whole world’s waiting for her.” All together now: Awwww.

PopWatch Confessional: I never had (but always kind of wanted) a spring break like those in the movies
Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers comes out this weekend and although most of the stories surrounding the movie focus on its Disney starlets (Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens) gone bad, what this movie really got me thinking about is how this is the first year in forever that I haven’t had a spring break.
I didn’t have an older sibling, so everything I knew about college came from movies and TV. Given that, when I was in high school, I imagined spring break would be a 24-hour party where everyone was beautiful, the music bumped all night long, there were no repercussions for gross misjudgments or transgressions, and everything was free. It went a little something like this:
EXT. A POOLSIDE PARTY SOMEWHERE IN FLORIDA. DAY.
Girls in neon bikinis and guys in cartoon swim trunks dance in slow motion around our lead character, SARAH. Every man is inexplicably a football player, every woman a model. Sarah holds a fruity drink as she walks alongside the pool, away from the cabana, taking in the atmosphere. One Abercrombie model throws a football to another Hollister model and he catches it while diving into the pool. No one gets tired. A mysterious boy accidentally bumps into our heroine. She’s turns around, upset. But wait, he’s pretty handsome.
Melissa McCarthy has more than one setting, but you wouldn’t really know that from her recent slate of film characters.
Ever since she made a splash–and earned an Oscar nomination–with her Guy Fieri-inspired bridesmaid, McCarthy seems to have set herself up to repeat a certain type of role: loud, crass, and obnoxious. Her next three projects, including the new-in-theaters Identity Thief and June’s The Heat are all described as raunchy comedies, and she has a few more projects in the works with her new production company that sound as though they will go that route as well.
She can do much more than these roles might suggest–Gilmore Girls fans already knew that.
Well, how about that — if you cobble together a group of Girls clips that don’t include nudity or anybody smoking crack, take away the sound, and set it to Carole King’s “Where You Lead,” HBO’s edgy comedy could totally pass for an old school WB dramedy. It’s not quite The Shining as a gentle family comedy — but the following fake credits sequence is still pretty amusing for fans of either show. God have mercy on Stars Hollow, though, if Hannah and the gang ever decide to spend a weekend there.
