Emily and Richard Wouldn’t Have Approved of Max for Lorelai

Even though Gilmore Girls Has been off the air for years, fans still turn to the series when they want to enjoy some old-fashioned nostalgia and a heavy dose of early 2000s feels. The series ran for seven seasons, allowing fans to follow along with the adventures of Lorelai Gilmore, played by Lauren Graham, and her intellectual daughter de ella Rory, played by Alexis Bledel. Romance was a central element in Gilmore Girls, with Lorelai dating several eligible men during the series run before settling down with Luke. One of these men was Max Medina, a character who has caused some controversy in the fan base – although viewers seem to universally agree that Lorelai’s parents wouldn’t have approved of Max.

When fans first met Lorelai Gilmore, the single mom seemed not to be that interested in dating. However, in the show’s very first season, she connected with Rory’s high school English teacher, Max Medina, played by Scott Cohen. Max pursued Lorelai aggressively throughout the first season after initially hitting it off at Chilton Parent Night. Their relationship suffered after Paris Geller caught them kissing – but they reconciled, dating early in the show’s second season.
