I just watched the end of Season 2 again, and my heart just broke all over again when Chris told Loralei that Shari was pregnant. Seasons 1 and 2 of the show are my favorites. Even though I'm 28, I identify strongly with Rory. I was a lot like that when I was young, especially the voracious reading, the dedication, and the love of verbal wordplay. I especially like the episode where the headmaster at Chilton tells Rory that she needs to be a joiner. It was refreshing to have the episode end with Rory sitting at the lunch table with her Discman and a book.
I also wish that my relationship with my mother had been more like the relationship between Rory and Loralei. Hopefully I'll remember that when I'm ready to have children.
I have mixed feelings about next season, but I'll give it a shot.
