My Thoughts on Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life

At 7AM, on the day after Thanksgiving, my mom, sister, and I gathered in our family room to watch Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life. Now we had some fun stuff going on yesterday, so we didn’t get to finish the episodes until a little while ago. But now we have watched them all, and I can react to how the series has ended.

I love Gilmore Girls

(A quick aside before our irregularly scheduled post: Last week, I contacted my local government representatives to express my concerns over Stephen Bannon and the rumors of a Muslim registry.  I typed up some scripts to follow, cobbled together from bits of other people’s scripts I had found online. When I called, I was able to reach live staffers, and I felt like they were recording my concerns. So if you have any concerns over Trump Administration appointments or rumored legislation, I encourage you to do the same. With a little bit of prep beforehand, you can get these calls done in a half hour and have your voice heard. If you would like me to link to some of the scripts I looked at, let me know, and I’ll do so. Ok? Ok.)

Gilmore Girls Spoilers Below!

Coffee and pop culture references are things I have on hand at any given moment, and I think it might be Gilmore Girls’ fault. My sister and I have come to the conclusion that we can probably blame the show for our tendencies to talk fast and over each other, all while quoting movie and TV lines we both know. Watching the show was a family affair, something my sister, mom, and I did after my sister and I got home from school.  Eventually, I grew to love the show. I wanted to write a very structured post all about it before the new episodes are released, but I honestly think I would rather babble about what I like and dislike about it. So please indulge my babbling.

Some opinions of mine:*

  • The show needs more diversity: Wow, this show is very white and straight, especially in its main cast. I’m hoping Netflix did better with this in their episodes.
  • Paris is amazing: I didn’t like Paris when I first watched the show. It is only now, with age and cynicism, that I have realized that Paris has some of the best, if not the most cutting  and sarcastic lines on the show, (second only to Emily.) I really can’t wait to see what she’s been up to.
