What a relief. I'll never have to hear that awful pronunciation of Coco ever again. It was like she was saying CowCow or something. It drove me nuts. It almost distracted me enough to not notice the nasty laugh track or the fact that ASP clearly hasn't been told that she's no longer writing for Lauren Graham. Poor Parker Posey, she didn't have a chance. Honestly, how many actors could say lines like that, other than Lauren Graham? No offense to LG, I love her (and, er, LG...just noticed that LG stands for Lorelai Gilmore too - it's taken all these seasons of GG, I'm quick, yes sirree), but her quick wit and
ability to speak a mile a minute are much the same as Lorelai's. Parker Posey, on the other hand, not so much. Lauren Ambrose was okay on the show, but not enough to save it for me, even if it hadn't been mercifully cancelled.
I thought that I couldn't hate anything that ASP had written, but then I realized...she created April. This was a whole show based on the ability to write something that seemed so forced and was so uncomfortable to watch.
It was such a speedy end to something I'd looked forward to for so very long.
Ta-Ta, CowCow. May the next ASP character creations be as well-written as LG/RG/EG (& all of Stars Hollow for that matter) and the acting as well-suited for the writing as all three Gilmore Girls.
