A review of Lucky Star was given by Daisuke. Final Rating: Watch it only if you get paid (any amount is fine as long as you get paid).

"Portrays the lives of several school girls attending a Japanese high school with a very loose humor tone. The main heroine is Konata Izumi, an athletic and intelligent girl who, despite these attributes, is not in a sports club, and her grades remain low. Her laziness at school is due to her love for anime and video games, and is not interested in much else. The serialization began with the four main characters in their first year of high school: Konata Izumi, Kagami Hiiragi, Tsukasa Hiiragi, and Miyuki Takara. As the story progresses, they move onto their second and third year."

A review of Gilmore Girls was given by Sven. Final Rating: Steal it from a friend.

"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. Now beginning its seventh season, the series revolves around thirtysomething Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham, "Bad Santa" and the upcoming "Evan Almighty") and her college-age daughter, and best friend in the world, Rory (Alexis Bledel, "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants," "Tuck Everlasting"). Lorelai has made her share of mistakes in life, but she has been doing her best to see that Rory doesn't follow in her footsteps. That may be easier said than done, considering that the two share the same interests, the same intellect, the same coffee addiction and the same eyes."
