Sean Gunn Relives His Gilmore Days

Sean Gunn, Kirk, Gilmore Girls

There are some days that I just sob from the loss I feel now that GILMORE GIRLS is gone.  Ok, maybe sob is a bit dramatic, but I certainly do get bummed out.  So imagine by utter joy when I saw that my favorite Stars Hollower, Kirk (played by the hilarious Sean Gunn) was asked to share with us his favorite Kirk episodes.  I think you all know by now that any Kirk-heavy eps were my favorites, but now let’s see what The Gunnster has to say about his faves.Here are a few….

9. Season 3’s ”They Shoot Gilmores, Don’t They?”
It’s the one where… Lorelei is determined to keep Kirk from winning the Stars Hollow dance marathon yet again. ”The final moment, where I’m hoisting my trophy and running around to the theme from Rocky, is one of my favorites. I wish I could say I improvised that, but I didn’t. That was all in the script.”

2. Season 3’s ”A Deep-Fried Korean Thanksgiving”
It’s the one where… Kirk gets a cat that he names Kirk. ”This is the other episode fans say is their favorite. What I really like about it is that all the action takes place offscreen, which to me is always funnier. The last scene, where Kirk is bandaged and describing how Cat Kirk is terrorizing him, is the only time in the whole seven years of doing the show that I can remember doing a take, and having Dan Palladino say, ‘Sean, that was a little too big. Can you bring it down a little bit?”’ (continue reading at

Alright GILMORE GIRLS fans, we don’t get an opportunity to talk about our show anymore.  Do you have any favorite Kirk episodes to add?  Or any favorite episodes in general?

    He was “October Road” a few weeks ago! I think you told us about that sometime earlier but I completely forgot about it until I saw him – it was a great surprise!

    I don’t remember the name of the episode, but one of my favorites is when the whole town had movie night and Kirk had the movie he shot as the opening act. That Palladino team wrote some of the best episodes I have ever seen on television.

    omggg I LOVE GILMORE GIRLS! Its so sad though because over here (in Australia) the latest season has yet to be aired (shhh dont tell me about it ive skipped your reviews on it for a reason hehe). In fact they didnt even air the whole of the last season – and it was shown at a measly 4:00 on Sundays. So luckily for me Gilmore Girls hasnt ended 😀 More Kirk yay
