My Thoughts on the Gilmore Girls Revival

When the news of the Gilmore Girls Revival broke, some of you may remember that I just went through the brave task of binging all 7 seasons of Gilmore Girls and you can see my thought on the show here. Now I have to stress again that watching this show as an adolescent or from when it was airing is a completely different experience from watching it as an adult in current times. I dislike a majority of the characters on this show but I like the show itself and kinda looked forward to what the revival would look like even if I don’t think I had high expectations.

The show was divided into 4 episodes labeled by seasons and beginning with Winter (get it? Like the theme song – Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall). Two seasons in and a very spotty first half of Summer, I had convinced myself that this revival was not worth it at all. At first, everyone seemed uncomfortable and you could visibly tell they were trying to ease into it and it was oh so impossible to not play the “who aged worst?” game because eek!, it was all so visible and in your face (except for Christopher. He was basically glowing)

The second one and half episodes of the show completely made up for all the number of times I rolled my eyes for the first one and half. They finally eased in and we saw again the essence of the show. The death of Edward Herrman who played Richard Gilmore definitely set the tone of this revival as it was written in the show and all 3 Girls had to deal with it.

To make it easy I will go ahead and list the things I liked and disliked about the revival:

*if you haven’t watched all four slowly back away from the post now*


DISLIKES (which might be a tad longer)

Fun Fact: If you were like who wondered why Emily’s maid, Berta looked familiar, it’s because you know who she is. I kept thinking that she sure looks an awful lot like Gypsy (the mechanic) but nah it can’t be her. I did a google search when I was done and lo and behold it was!

Overall, I think the Fall episode makes up for everything else. The fact that it’s just 6 hours all together makes it worth a watch if nothing else. The pining look Jesse gave Rory through the window and the famous final four words (which I guessed correctly) from Rory to Lorelei seem to point that we are due for more Gilmore Girls. Doesn’t matter if my dislike list was longer than my like list, this girl will still be tuning in.

Have you seen all 4? What did you think?
