If you are considering buying this set, I will assume that you already are aware of the brilliance of this show and are simply looking for a different format in which to buy it.
The case is adorable. It has a puffy plastic white cover, identical to an old-fashioned barbie case. The side closes magnetically, so the case is very secure. And there is a sturdy black plastic handle you can use to carry the case with.
The seasons are sub-divided into cardboard paper folders, with a picture of a cast member on each cover. Also included are two very charming books, one full of Gilmorisms and one full of the episode descriptions.
For me, the only drawback to this collection is that, eventually, the white plastic will yellow with age and will look a tad dated.
I would recommend buying this from Amazon's sister company, Amazon.com. Amazon.ca is charging $215 for the set, and I was able to buy my copy at Amazon.com for $169. That is a significant savings, especially with the Canadian dollar being so strong.
Gilmore Girls: The Complete Series Collection has given us many hours of watching pleasure of this fun, witty series. One of the best parts of watching them on DVD is that we don't have to watch commercials. Now that we are retired, we watched the entire series over this last couple of winter months and enjoyed watching and laughing together. My husband and I are both glad that we purchased this collection with the nice carrying box and books with information about the series.
All of the characters, both primary and supporting, are well-developed and become immediately familiar as soon as they're introduced. I've never felt so invested in the lives of fictional characters as I have in watching this programme. It remains a favourite of my sister and I. We still manage to watch multiple episodes on those rare occasions when we get together, and the debates on which of Rory's and Lorelei's boyfriends they should have ended up with continue ad infinitum.
Following the conclusion of the seventh season, the show ultimately feels unresolved, and this unfortunately seems to have been a problem related to the network than having had anything to do with the writers or the show. That said, I can't imagine Lauren Graham or Alexis Bledel in any role other than as Lorelei and Rory Gilmore, respectively, nor can I ever see Scott Patterson as anyone other than Luke Danes (sorry, to each of you, but your roles in this masterful programme leave you as typecast as Ted Neely was by his unforgettable role).
Quite a few people said that when they received the series, one or two of the 42 dvds in the set were scratched or wouldn't play. And I should have listened.. because the same thing happened to me, and I just returned the package today (also, it's a heavy set, and the postage wasn't cheap.) I'm not sure what amazon's return system is like but it seems fair and I'm sure they'll handle it professionally.
This is just too bad because I love this show, and would have liked to have the episodes at my fingertips. I would have exchanged the set for a new one, but I couldn't be bothered because I figure the same thing would happen again. This is not even amazon's fault, but the manufacturer's, and they should really rethink the cardboard packaging of the set and be more careful when preparing the dvds - especially because it's such a classic show! Ah well.. life goes on I guess. I just wanted to let you buyers know so you don't make the same mistake I did.
PS. This show still rules all :)
