There were a few things that stood out me this time around. Firstly I found myself thinking that it's been a little bit exaggerated just how much Dean's personality was retconned after Jess came along. Dean was never actually shown to be as into reading and swapping rec's with Rory in season 1 as I've seen suggested, he made a single reference to liking Hunter S. Thompson, but otherwise it came across like it was more Rory's thing for her to lend him her favourite books and encourage him to try and find something in them, but I never saw him as someone who would have been reading in his free time without Rory's encouragement. I do think it could arguably be seen as a retcon that the show later pushed the narrative of Dean not being all that smart though, he seemed to be doing okay in that department in the beginning, then suddenly in seasons 2 and 3 he came across as someone who had given absolutely no thought to college. But still I never felt like his character was all that radically changed after Jess came along, I see season 1 Dean more as someone who was super into Rory, so a lot of season 1 was more about him trying to keep up with her references and impress her IMO

And urgh I'm so bummed that one of my season 2 disks wouldn't play two of the episodes, I've never had a problem with it before! It was the beginning of Secret And Loans that was messed-up, so not too painful a loss, but I also couldn't play the last half of The Bracebridge Dinner. I caught up with them on Netflix instead, but still :( I kept looking for damage on that disk, but I couldn't make out any scratches at all?? All I could think was that maybe it's because I have the complete boxset where the disks aren't in protected holders, you just slide them back in against the cardboard, maybe that's doing some long-term damage? If only it had been a season 6 or 7 disk instead :sighs:
