I came to Gilmore Girls a little late in life, nearly fifteen years after it first aired. I’d just had a newborn, and as you may have heard or experienced, newly-plucked-from-the-womb humans like to party in the middle of the night. Mine was no exception.
Some parents, when it comes to 2:30 am feeding responsibilities, finally get to reading Crime and Punishment or Madame Bovary. I may like to get my read on, but I was not one of those literary-minded parents, and instead relied on binge-watching all sorts of shows in order to not fall asleep on my child.
Enter Gilmore Girls. And enter the much-anticipated, four-part reunion I can’t wait to see starting November 25th! You can read all about it here, or keep on reading for a little snippet of my words:
Some things never change.
Back in your hometown, you drive down the same street you once learned to ride your bike on. Memories of childhood flood you. You finger the books on your bookshelves, but still believe nothing beats an afternoon with Anne of Green Gables. And when it comes to television, nothing brings you back to slouching on the couch with girlfriends like an episode of Gilmore Girls.
If you’re anything like me, you likely squealed with glee at the Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life trailer that released just this week. And if this little snippet of Stars Hollow is any indication, I doubt we’ll be disappointed.
The music is just the same: why build a soundtrack to Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself” when a late nineties Sarah McLaughlin tune will do just fine? In fact, better than fine. I wouldn’t have it any other way. And the scene is exactly as you might imagine, with “Lorelai” (Lauren Graham) and “Rory” (Alexis Bledel) at the kitchen table, drinking coffee and eating Pop-Tarts. Their go-to diet.
Head on over to For Her and read the rest of the article if you haven’t already. Otherwise, go Team Lorelai!
I know: I’m so white. But I sure love me some Gilmore Girls, and I doubt this will change at the end of November. So, what did you love or hate about the show, and what of the trailer makes you GIDDY with excitement?
