    Alexis Bledel isn’t the best actress, but I still loved her as she’s very likeable, so I think that if the writing and direction is good enough, the show could be a success.

  • observer

    it always surprises me how pretty her eyes are and how young she looks!

  • mirabell

    I might be wrong but I noticed that the more she ages; her eyes get bluer & bluer – how possible is that?!

  • justme

    I just really wish that she was more popular & somewhat a `better actress as well.

  • roseate

  • jeancrux

    Alexis was born under a lucky GENES star. So not fair.

  • irelander

    Certainly good for Alexis and somewhat unexpected, I really hope her career takes an upward turn after this. Good luck to her!

  • joshthur

    Her eyes are just out of this world… they are her best & priceless accessory.

  • truscotti

    Alexis is one beautiful & grounded woman, can’t wait to see her on a decent show again (like GG), her talent is wasted by not being on our screen.

  • juniper

    I love her. I think she’s actually talented in a HW world full of disposable & superficial actresses.

  • hillray

    This sounds like Ben & Kate” to me; where the lead actor is not as hot & pretty like the lead actress…

  • annais

    Good News!!! I just love seeing her and I dont care “where, when, how or even why” LOL!!!!!!

  • jammer

    Awesome! It’ll be a great duo on screen as it looks like it has potential.

  • ultiggfan

    Alexis rightfully deserves to have another TV show either a solo one or a co-starring w/ another actor/actress (like GG) or could be much much better if its a GIlmore Girls movie!

  • soleil

    Hopefully this show does well, both actors are talented. The other cast members seem like a good fit.

  • janneu

    Alexis has improved a lot in her acting way back GG days and one wouldnt get another/continous acting job if they dont have talent. God bless you more Alexis!

  • gelson

    I must say that d’ late John Ritter is much hotter than his son Jason.

  • moresy

    The plot synopsis sounds like it has potential, hopefully it’s worth watching. They’ll have to sell me on the trailer.

  • riedell

    It will be nice to see her in something different… a 30 mins romcom on FOX!
