I loved Melissa McCarthy as Sookie St. James on Gilmore Girls. I saw someone else write: "Remember when Sookie was played by a fat actress and there were literally no jokes about her weight on the show? Remember how she wasn’t defined by her weight? Remember how she got to date and get married and have kids and not be just the token funny fat friend of the main character? Remember when she got her life together and was happy before Lorelai and that wasn’t seen as threatening?” YES, INDEED.
