Célèste's Review of S2E17 “Dead Uncles and Vegetables"

“Dead Uncles and Vegetables"
Season 2, Episode 17
Original airing: April 16, 2002

My Rating: 78

The Good:
  • I love when the show takes to time to really focus on Luke. He's such a great character and his arc in this episode was great.
  • It's nice that the show makes a place for all kinds of different characters and shows the distinction between grumps when are selfish and grumps who still care about others. 
  • Lorelai's old fashioned diner slang was a definite highlight for me.
  • The Taylor/hippy subplot was one of the most entertaining things I've seen on the show. I really loved both performances, especially how the hippy's laid-back attitude was just the thing to really push uptight Taylor over the edge. 
The Bad:
  • The idea of Rory making sure Jess helped out was good, but the execution wasn't perfect. 
Favorite Moment:
Lorelai lists Luke's many good deeds at Louie's funeral

The Bottom Line:
This episode is technically a kind of filler in that it doesn't move any of the major arcs of the season forward, but it's so enjoyable to watch that I'd never recommend skipping it.
