Good morning. 🙂 Long term readers of Book Journey know that I am a HUGE Gilmore Girls fan. I own every season and watch them all usually once a year. You can imagine my excitement when last fall I hear about a show called Bunheads claiming to have the same quick whit and charm and even in a couple cases the same characters ( Liza Weil (Paris!), Kelly Bishop (Emily!), and Sean Gunn (Kirk!) just to name a few.
Of course at first I was skeptical of a show about a ballet school and a former exotic dancer turned good girl… but I was quick to see the show had value and in short time I became a fan…
and I loved the dancing…
And now I know its not coming back replaced by the other “dance shows” that I do not watch.. and I am sad. Buggers. I guess back to the books…. reading (still) City of Glass – book 3 in the Mortal Instrument series but I must put it down and get into Giants Of The Earth which is our book club pick due on Tuesday. Eep! At least I have a low key weekend. 🙂

Gilmore Girls is one of my favorite shows of all time!! I really miss it being on television. 😦 I wish I could live in Stars Hollow!
I would love to live in Stars Hollow too!
Bunheads isn’t coming back? I was only able to watch back episodes on Hulu, but I was so delighted when I found it and now they’re gone. Bummer!
Oops, how come I’m showing up as Anonymous? Must have done something wrong. Let’s try again. Durn computers!
I was loving it that I found it too…. and then it was over. There was talk that they were checking ratings against other shows. There is so much crap on TV… it was nice to find one I liked.
That has happened to me several times over the years, starting back when I watched Cagney & Lacey….but the first time they were cancelled, there was an uproar, and they continued for a few more years.
Recently, I moaned at the loss of Private Practice (the Grey’s Anatomy spin-off). I guess I could see that they probably ran out of fresh story, but those characters were like friends.
Sorry about your loss. I didn’t watch Bunheads, but I used to catch the tail-end of it on my DVR when recording one of the other shows on that network.
And I never watched The Gilmore Girls, but see it on the weekends, in the background while I’m reading, and usually muted. I don’t like to watch shows that are reruns, because they aren’t shown in order.
There was not many episodes Laurel… but they were good. 😀 They have a farewell dance on TouTube.
My boys and I all loved Matthew Perry’s sit-com Go On. Finally a comedy that wasn’t too crass and crude to watch as a family – but it didn’t get a second season. 😦
Isnt that sad? I watch so little tv… I like Survivor, Modern Family, and Amazing Race. Other than that I read or watch movies – or seasons of old shows… currently Little House On The Prairie (on season 7) 😀
I absolutely loved Gilmore Girls and believe I am still missing some episodes. Such a shame that it has finished. Never heard of Bunheads. Recently found a Series called Rita about a messed up school teacher, it is a danish show that has subtitles and is actually quite good. Only able to get it on Netflix at the moment and can see that there is a second series but cannot get access 😦
If you can find the few episodes of Bunheads I recommend them… not as great as Gilmore – but it will give you your fix 😀
Have you watched Orange is the new black? It’s funny!
i’m afraid to even check on my fave shows! I’ve kind of made up my mind to only watch shows that has several episodes on hulu. believe it or not i have not watched gilmore girls ~ must remedy that!
I hear you there! You would love Gilmore Girls – start at the beginning and enjoy! 😀
I was very sad to see Bunheads go! My favorite character was Boo! I loved how strong a girl she was!
She was so fun wasnt she? Her family life was crazy!
