I've only watched it once and did not get hooked on it.

Into the heart of a child...

I'll agree with you here....Dawson's Creek used words that I had never heard of, and more often than not, I found myself getting lost in the dialogues. Gilmore Girls doesn't use the big words, but drops in pop culture references that most people should get. Naming off Bono and Bowie, or Kafka and Henry James, I Love Lucy and Laverne and Shirley...all things that really, you'd come to expect from a Yalie and someone who grew up in the 70s...A lot of this is stuff my own friends would bring up.

For my younger sister, I'd rather have her watching this than say, 90210, as I did at that age, or soap operas, or Dawson's Crrek and One Tree Hill. If Rory reading Daisy Miller makes my sister want to pick up a novel, then, hey..go for it.
