A fan and a newbie watching Gilmore Girls from a male perspective.
Ben Cassil and Eugene Suen are Gilmore Girls Boys! While Ben has been a big fan of Gilmore Girls for a few years, and Mandy was with it from the beginning, Eugene Suen comes with absolutely no prior knowledge of the show. Hilarity generally ensues.

What could be more relevant to Gilmore Girls than Oscar picks? What's that you say? Discussing the episode? Poppycock!

Briiing back those lazy hazy crazy days of summer, those days of coffees, and salads, and Gilmore Girls Boys!
