I feel like such a dork writing this but I have to tell you, I had never watched the show Gilmore Girls until it came to Netflix. I don't know why I never watched it. I guess my taste in programming has changed over the years, I was after all only in my mid-twenties when this show came out. Maybe I didn't quite understand the whole "Mom-Daughter" duo. 



Everyone I spoke to watched it though, talked about it. My mother even ranted and raved about how great a show it was. I read article upon article about how great a show it was but it wasn't up until this year that I started watching Gilmore Girls. I guess you can say Netflix kind of gave me a boost. 

When Gilmore Girls originally aired on TV, I had a newborn baby. My first newborn baby, might I add. Those were actually my "Sex in the city" days. you see, I didn't get to watch a whole lot of TV. Anything that actually aired, I watched it in reruns on different channels. No, we didn't have a DVR or anything like that. "Sex in the city" played repeats on a certain channel at the baby's feeding time almost every evening, so we'd watch it while feeding and cuddling afterward.

Anyway, back to the topic of Gilmore Girls. As I have said before, I watch many different shows now that we can stream pretty much whatever we want whenever we want. In between seasons of shows I love, I decided to give Gilmore Girls a shot. Why not check out what everyone was raving about 10 years ago and still are today.

I won't write a review about the show. That's been done 1000 times by now, I'm sure (just Google it). But, I will say I enjoyed it. It's a much cleaner-cut show than I usually watch and some of the fashion was a little questionable, but I enjoyed it. The story was a heartwarmer at the least. It brought back memories of the early 2000's with the pop culture references and such. So nostalgic! 

So, I finished it. All seven seasons. I started in January (like I said I would here) and I finished just the other day. That's a lot of binge-watching, it helps that we don't have to wait once a week to see the next episode! 

If you are a Gilmore Girls fan or just on any kind of social media at all, you've probably heard about the reboot , Gilmore Girls - A Year In The Life coming to Netflix later on this year. It will be 4 90 minute episodes and I bet they will be great! 

According to the Gilmore Girls Facebook page, we are in for a treat on July 1st with ALL episodes being available worldwide only on Netflix. Does this mean we can catch up sooner than we expected? 

What are you looking forward to most about the return of the Gilmore Girls?


UPDATE:
I'm sure you've heard the news! 

Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life will launch everywhere that Netflix is available on Friday, November 25th at 12:01am PT

  1. Thanks so much for sharing this post! I LOVE this series and can't wait for the reboot. I think I will be looking forward to whether Luke and Lorelai will be together, who Rory will be dating, and how they will play the death of Richard Gilmore withing the first few episodes. Thanks for also pointing me in the direction of their fan page! I'm now following!

  2. I never got into this show and I'm not really sure why. The few episodes I did catch I found some great life lesson messages and there was a great humour presence. I'll have to check it out on Netflix. Thanks for sharing :)
