I am aware of that but on the show Rory is portrayed as a white character so I am treating her that way. Ms. Patty as of S1E14 (which is where I am at) is still ambiguous since her only background is Broadway, though I am fairly certain she will not be treated as a POC character in the show. Which is why she isn’t included in my count.
and I don’t understand the mass appeal. The minor characters are more interesting than the Gilmores. Why are they having a rummage sale for the town to donate their crap only to sell it back to each other? Pretty sure they darkened Luke’s hair throughout season one to make him look even younger. Also if Luke didn’t want anyone, especially Lorelei, wearing his ex’s sweater WHY would he donate it to a TOWN RUMMAGE SALE?!? Also the show reeks of privilege. I’ve only found three POC characters with lines so far. Four if you consider Ms. Patty POC since the actress is Puerto Rican.
Side note Liz Torres is one of my favorite voice actors for her work in Happily Ever After: Fairy Tales for Every Child. Personal favorite characters of hers is the merchant in Twelve Dancing Princesas.
