I took one of those Buzzfeed quizzes during a break in the action today —
Which Rory Gilmore Are You?
Now, I have watched every episode of this amazing television show — more than once, thank you very much — so I figured I would be the best version of Rory Gilmore. And the survey says —
Puppy Love Rory Gilmore
No offense to Dean — he was a great guy. But Rory was so very young and clueless back in the puppy love years. Can someone as cynical as I still have even a morsel of her naivete?
I thought for sure I would be the older, more sophisticated Rory that we saw surface during her years at Yale…perhaps —
I Love the Things Money Can Buy Rory
Yeah, that’s the ticket.

There are a few sounds in life that make me instantly recoil:
- nails on chalkboard
- the Nextel walkie-talkie trill

Find the body
Talk to the cops about finding the body
Conduct the first interview
Follow that lead
Gasp, an unexpected twist
New clue yields our killer
Off to the courtroom
Justice is done
It felt and looked like the same show every time I watched. I suspect they used a random plot generator to churn out those episodes lo’ these 20 years.
But I know there are people who love this show as much as I dislike it, and news of the cancellation is causing them distress.
To them I say — Law & Order: SVU. Law & Order: Criminal Intent. The upcoming Law & Order: Los Angeles. Heck, there is even a Law & Order: UK. They are many ways to get your fix…many opportunities for us all to hear:
