Is there an SDA-connected writer on Gilmore Girls?

Recommended Posts

LynnDel

Does anyone know if there is an SDA-connected writer on Gilmore Girls? This week there was a reference to Adventist hospitals -- they didn't say Seventh-day AdVENtist, just ADventist (as we do) -- and Loma Linda University.

I sometimes catch the last few minutes of Gilmore Girls while I'm waiting for Smallville to come on. GG seems like it might be a well-written show. I just don't go for that Chick stuff. OK, Smallville is a bit of a Chick show, but not as bad as Lois and Clark was. When you're a fan of Superman, you put up with a lot of fluff to get to your superhero.

My wife and daughters are avid fans.

The script writer must be basically ANTI-SDA because they are portraying SDA colleges as a conservative boring unsexual safe place to send a girl.

Anyone who has been to an SDA college knows this is true...

For what it is worth Smallville is tape close to where I live.

Exactly who is Mrs. Gray? Is she the authority on everything? Sort of like the Miss Manners about anything you need to know?

I don't know what SDA college you attended, Bevin, but I am sorry you had such a boring experience!

I had no trouble at all with boredom, but of course I attended a few years ago, just about the time that colleges no longer had enough hold on students to keep them on campus for the weekend. Before the era of the Grand Weekend Exodus, colleges provided simple entertainment that, at the time, was enjoyable to most participants. Now, I suppose, we might consider it simple and unsophisticated.

SDA colleges would like to keep their students on the straight and narrow, which is what makes them so appealing to Lane's mother (herself about as appealing as a barking marine sergeant).

My tongue-in-cheek wasn't obvious enough I suppose.

I enjoyed my year at Avondale, and found a lovely young woman who (25 years later) is still my wife.

Keiko Agena, who plays Lane on the WB's "Gilmore Girls," knows that as Rory Gilmore's best friend, she's pretty likely to have a job next season. Since the show is about to go through some major changes, it wasn't a sure thing.

"I'm a little nervous because a lot of things will change next season," she says. "Lorelai and Sookie start their own inn, Sookie's having a baby, and the young people are all going to different colleges. But I'm always surprised and happy when the scripts come in. I'm never disappointed."

Still, there was a chance that Lane would be sent away to college, but it looks like she dodged that bullet.

"This isn't confirmed," Agena says, "but in the last episode we just shot, my character agreed, out of Korean mother guilt, to go to a Seventh Day Adventist college and live at home. I'm thinking that keeps me and my mom involved in Stars Hollow. I'm pretty sure Rory's going to Yale - and if she doesn't live at home, she'll be close to home."

The big question, however, is whether either of Rory's boyfriends will survive the season. The truth is it doesn't look good. Jared Padalecki, who plays Dean, is set to star in the new show "Young MacGyver." Milo Ventimiglia, who plays Jess, gets his own show as well, starring in a "Gilmore Girls" spinoff.

Agena says the two will go out with a bang, however.

"Dean and Jess get into a huge brawl over Rory at a party (in the April 15 episode)," she says. " I think Jared got hurt. I heard that it looks great on-screen, but the blows are pretty close. One of the punches landed! I think Jared needed to put an ice pack on his eye."

MTV shows restraint

During wartime, MTV Europe is nixing violent videos, such as ones with images of war and explosions, a spokeswoman told MSNBC's The Scoop.

"Videos with words such as 'bomb,' 'missile,' 'war' or other sensitive words should not be shown at the moment," said MTV Europe executive Mark Sunderland. "We're screening videos with an eye toward current events to make sure whatever we play is sensitive and appropriate."

MTV Europe has issued a list of videos that should not be played during the conflict in Iraq. Among the banned are System of a Down's "Boom!," an antiwar video directed by Michael Moore, whose "Shame on you, Mr. Bush!" speech Sunday night had Oscar directors scrambling to play exit music.

Other off-limits videos include Aerosmith's "Don't Want to Miss a Thing" (contains footage from the film Armageddon), U2's "Miss Sarajevo" (contains missiles, guns and buildings being blown up), Bon Jovi's "This Ain't a Love Song" (contains war scenes and victims in distress) and Radiohead's "Lucky" (contains war footage including injured children).

WB picks six shows

The WB announced last week that it is picking up six shows to return next season.

Leading the pack is "7th Heaven," by far the network's highest-rated show. The network has given the show a two-year pickup, meaning it will make it through nine seasons.

The network also has picked up "Gilmore Girls," "Smallville," "Everwood," "Charmed" and "Reba."

"Reba" is the network's highest-rated comedy and "Charmed," a show barely hanging on last season, has seen its ratings grow on Sundays, a night the network has always had trouble programming.

Two reality shows, "The Surreal Life," and "High School Reunion," also have been picked up for another season.

You may have noticed that two shows, "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," and "Angel" aren't on the list. "Sabrina" is rumored to be ending its run this year and planning a series finale. The fate of "Angel" is more up in the air as it continues to struggle in the ratings. The network has until May to make a final decision.

50 Cent still on top

There was no change in the top three on the album charts as the music industry suffered another slow week.

Rapper 50 Cent made it three weeks in a row at No. 1 as "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" sold another 240,000 copies. Norah Jones comes in at No. 2 as her "Come Away With Me" sold 243,000 copies and R. Kelly's "Chocolate Factory" takes the No. 3 spot with 105,000 copies sold.

Aguilera and the NBA

The NBA will present the world premiere of a new Christina Aguilera video "Love it Live" on Sunday during ABC's telecast of the Washington Wizards vs. Boston Celtics game. The 90-second music video, produced by NBA Entertainment, features Aguilera's new single "Fighter" and will promote the NBA's 2003 Playoffs "Love it Live" campaign.

The "Love it Live" video, filmed at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, follows Aguilera as she prepares for a performance on center court. The video features NBA stars, including Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal and Yao Ming.

Aguilera also will be part of the NBA "Love it Live" Sweepstakes taking place now through April 22. The Grand Prize winner of the sweepstakes will receive a trip and two tickets to a 2003 NBA Finals game and two tickets and backstage VIP passes to see Aguilera and Justin Timberlake live at a concert on their "Justified and Stripped" Summer 2003 Tour.

All fans purchasing any 2003 NBA regular season or post-season game tickets through NBA.com, ticketmaster.com and the NBA Hotline at (800) 4NBA-TIX, will automatically be entered into the NBA "Love It Live" Sweepstakes drawing for a chance to win. Additionally, fans purchasing tickets at any NBA ticket office will receive an Entry Form and can enter by completing and mailing the Entry Form to the designated address for receipt by April 29, 2002.

Joey's future

Fans of "Dawson's Creek, which is winding down to a series finale May 14, have one big question on their mind. Who will Joey end up with, Dawson or Pacey?

Kevin Williamson, creator of the show who is writing the finale, says fans will get their answer.

"Quite frankly, I want Joey to make a decision," Williamson tells TV Guide. "I think the last couple of seasons I've gotten frustrated with her character sort of being here, there, everywhere.

"Also, it's going to be fun to play up ... you know how during the first two seasons it was a very self-aware type show? Well, it's going to be fun to watch our characters rendered speechless," he says. "I'm going to finally render them speechless. There's going to be a lot of laughs and tears. And we're going to do the whole tear-jerking ending.

The show, which will be set five years in the future, also will feature a wedding, but Williamson won't say who gets married.

Hey Stan,

Can you give us a run down of all of the Evangelistic Series that are happening this year?

Equal billing.

Shirley, er,..Mopsie. The Southern Union is the paper for our southern conference. They list the evangelism efforts for FL at least. They show what evangelist will be at what church and the dates. So that may be a place to head.

Here in TN, this fall, evangelism will be in high gear and MI was the front runner for this style of having the lay people doing it when I was there in Sept of 02.

My girls tell me that a recent show had the Korean character agreeing to go to an SDA school, with comments like (quotations are approximate only)

"look, it has two parks". "One for the boys and one for the girls".

"having a Metallica CD is no longer grounds for explusion, you can do lots of community service instead".

Puts me in mind of Monterey Bay Academy and their beach. Girls and boys can go there on alternate days. Of course, Gilmore Girls' depiction of having rules like this in a college is ridiculous. I wonder how many people will believe it. . .

My daughters and I are avid Gilmore girls fans.

From last season I got the impression that Lane's mom is an SDA.

We have heard many SDA comments, which some would perceive as negative; but I thought were funny. Many of the things said are probably things that most non SDA's think about us.

I don't think Lane's mom is an SDA (speaking as if she were a real person). She is unreasonably strict, has manphobia, heard that SDA colleges were strict (maybe were, a few decades into the last century), thinks an SDA college is the next best thing to a convent, and therefore Lane should go to one.

Lanes mom has been shunning Lane. Adventists don't condone shunning.

P.S. My personal opinion about Gilmore Girls is that it's losing its zing, and in order to keep its ratings is already going in directions that no longer interest me.

I think the SDA things on the show are what others perceive about us.

Lane's mom shunning her, I think is a cultural thing not necessarily and SDA thing.

I love the show, and even though my girls are not here we call each other right after we've seen it to talk.

We are very excited about Lauralie and Luke.
