The show follows single mother Lorelai Gilmore and her daughter, also named Lorelai but who prefers to be called Rory, living in the fictional town of Stars Hollow, Connecticut.
The town is filled with colorful characters and is located approximately 30 minutes from Hartford, Connecticut.
Hartford is the capital of Connecticut and the historic seat of Hartford County until Connecticut disbanded county government in 1960.
The series explores issues of family, friendship and romance, as well as generational divides and social class.
Ambition, education, work, love, family, and questions of class constitute some of the series' central concerns.
The show's social commentary manifests most clearly in Lorelai's difficult relationship with her wealthy, appearance-obsessed parents, Emily and Richard Gilmore, and in Rory's interactions with the students at the Chilton Academy, and later, Yale University.
The Germanic first or given name Richard derives from German, French, and English "ric" and "hard", and it therefore means "powerful leader".
Yale University is an American private Ivy League research university in New Haven, Connecticut.
It featured fast-paced dialogue filled with pop-culture references.
Popular culture or pop culture is the entirety of ideas, perspectives, attitudes, images, and other phenomena that are within the mainstream of a given culture, especially Western culture of the early to mid 20th century and the emerging global mainstream of the late 20th and early 21st century.
