This week I’m celebrating the Gilmore Girls.
It’s been the summer of Gilmore for me.
I loved watching family dynamics and this show features one of the most refreshing mother-daughter relationship in the titular characters.
I loved the caffeine-fueled, fast-talking pop culture, literary, and music references of the show.
The quirkiness of Stars Hollow and its residents didn’t seem forced. In fact, you’ll be hard pressed not to want to live in their little hamlet with its two bookstores, a library, and Luke’s Diner- and all of its town events!
Gilmore Girls was definitely a binge-watch worthy show. I didn’t even mind the much despised seventh season. There was a sense of different-ness about it but it wasn’t as bad as people made it out to be. Sure, there were frustrating storylines but previous seasons had them as well. Without spoiling anything (or, at least, too much), I hated the Rory/Dean relationship and anything to do with the Life and Death Brigade.
It was hard not to get spoiled myself especially amid all the news of the revival which I’m excited about. November 25th can’t come soon enough!
The show ended in a good place full of possibilities. It’ll be interesting to see what the new episodes will bring.
What are you celebrating this week?
