If you can’t help but hum the entire song, welcome to the Gilmore Girls fan club. This song pretty much explains the theme of the show. It doesn’t happen very often than a show gets a revival after years of going off the air. Gilmore Girls’ ardent fans were thrilled when Netflix officially announced to drop a long-awaited six-hour long revival A Year In The Life. With Netflix taking over, this show picked up a whole lot of viewers in addition to the ones who couldn’t help but binge-watched it time and again.
This show first went on air in 2000, and I didn’t watch this show up until last year. One episode into this show and I fell in love with the Gilmore Girls. Each season of the series comprises of about 16 hours of wit, emotions, romance and rapid references to movies, bands and books which makes it more enthralling, all in all. Whether it was Lorelai’s witty comebacks, Rory’s compassion, Sookie’s imposing cooking skills, Luke’s Diner, Kirk’s naivety, Michelle’s abrasive behavior mixed with his exasperating accent, Emily’s tactics, Star Hollow’s town meetings or the conviction and honesty with which the show’s creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino let us in on their lives, I found myself more and more drawn and invested in this show. You may have witnessed tones of mother-daughter relationships before, but this one manages to stick with you. With all honesty, I was a tad too envious of how amazing this mother-daughter duo is. Gilmore Girls is one of the well-structured and wittily written shows you don’t want to miss out.
Let us give you a clear-cut forewarning that this article is surely going to ruin your suspense including the famous last four words if you haven’t watched Gilmore Girls revival already. Having established that, let’s go ahead and begin with this article.
The show is a well-written mixture of drama and comedy genres. Gilmore Girls gloriously manages to serve a wide range of emotions, characters and their situations. The Gilmore Girls follows the heart-warming story of a single mother Lorelai Gilmore (played by Lauren Graham) and her daughter, Rory Gilmore (played by Alexis Bledel), whom she named after her but to avoid any confusion she prefers calling her Rory. They live in a dreamy & fictional town, Stars Hollow in Connecticut. This is a sweet, richly textured town filled with love, slightly hysterical, quirky yet kind inhabitants who look after each other in good times and in bad. Lorelai and Rory are more best friends than mother and daughter. They share each and every detail of their day-to-day life with each other with intricate details.
