Gilmore Girls

I do so love the Gilmore Girls (and if you haven’t actually watched them, think twice before mocking and/or belittling the series).  It’s quite possible that I have the entire seven seasons memorized, start to finish – and yet I continue to play them in the background when occupied with any given project.  As is the case with all television shows, the Gilmore Girls start off with a bang (!) and end with a few glitches, but the entire series is worth watching and owning regardless. 
Synopsis (borrowed from TV.com.): Set in a storybook Connecticut town populated with an eclectic mix of everyday folks and lovable lunatics, Gilmore Girls is a humorous multigenerational series about friendship, family and the ties that bind . . . More >
A Few Characters:
Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham): Thirty-something quick-witted single mom who loves coffee.
Rory Gilmore (Alexis Bledel): Bookish, college-bound daughter and best friend of Lorelai. 
Luke Danes (Scott Patterson): Diner-owner with an extremely dry sense of humor.
Sookie St. James (Melissa McCarthy): Lorelai’s friend, business partner at the Dragonfly Inn, and chef.
Michel Gerard (Yanic Truesdale): Grouchy French concierge.
Lane Kim (Keiko Agena): Rory’s friend, a Korean drummer with an extremely sheltered lifestyle.
Kirk Gleason (Sean Gunn): Town weirdo who, for whatever reason, has something like 500 jobs.
Paris Geller (Lisa Weil): Rory’s classmate and sometimes-arch-nemesis, sometimes-friend.
Richard and Emily Gilmore (Edward Herrmann and Kelly Bishop): Lorelai’s wealthy, snobbish parents.
Dean Forester (Jared Padalecki): Rory’s first boyfriend.

Further details: Cast and Crew.
If you like realistic characters and settings, true-to-life humor, fast-paced dialogue, and most especially coffee - watch the Gilmore Girls.  You’ll love them.
