Rewatching Gilmore Girls in 2016

Rewatching Gilmore Girls in 2016 Flatlay Coffee quotes
Yes, as you can see from the title, I did it. I rewatched seven seasons of nostalgic episodes in about two months and oh boy, it was so so good to be back in Stars Hollow. Finding Gilmore Girls episodes online was really difficult until now. I’m so glad Netflix picked it up because I could catch up with all the episodes uninterrupted by anything and yeah I’ve been guilty of watching 8 episodes a day sometimes. I've got my coffee in my hand and ready to share some thoughts after rewatching this beloved series because frankly there were so many moments that I had forgotten and it was great watching them all back. I needed to get back on track before the “Year in the Life” special!

1. Tristan being the bad guy in the first two seasons just caught me off guard now. I hated him before but it was extremely difficult to hate him now that he has been glorified in my mind as Lucas Scott (from One Tree Hill)

2. Stars Hollow is the cutest town ever. I loved every little shop and landmarks in the town. The “Bluebell” from Hart of Dixie ( another one of my absolute favourites) shares the same set as Stars Hollow. Hart of Dixie recently finished in 2014 and I could almost imagine Zoe Hart popping up at the town square or on the streets. It was all so fresh in my mind.

3.I love how ironic it is that “Dean” from Gilmore Girls ended up playing the brother to one famous “Dean Winchester” *Swoons* Also, Dean is my favourite from all of  Rory’s boyfriends. Update: I'm a leaning towards Jess now..anyone but Logan.

4.“I had the same pants in High School. I’m in again” – Lorelai when she was visiting Harvard with Rory.
I wonder what Lorelai would say if she saw everything in the shops since the last year or so. Mock neck tops, chokers, choker neck tops, flared jeans, wrap dresses..Omg,It’s Lorelai everything. She would freak out!

5.How many jobs does Kirk work? I remember an episode where someone actually kept count of it but God knows how many more he worked after that. That man is unstoppable.

6.The Friday Night Dinners were possibly some of the funniest scenes, especially in the first three seasons. I loved when they went to those and they always ended up in drama. I actually missed Emily’s character when Lorelai would fight with them over periods of time. Kelly Bishop is fantastic in it!

7.Rory’s graduation speech from Chilton is one of my personal favourite speeches by Rory. It’s actually one of those very few moments when I actually shed tears for a drama show( that I’ve already seen before)

8.The chemistry between Rory and Logan was sort of lacking from day one, in my opinion and I had expected them to break up long before they did. He just didn’t match up to the dreamy Dean and Jess. 

9.Lane Kim was probably one of the most badass girls on the show. I love how her character matured and she did these crazy things in spite of having a strict mom and also married Zach, a rock musician. She and Rory have the most perfect friendship too.

 10.The character certificate that Lorelai writes for Luke is such a pivotal scene to the plot. I loved the letter. It was so honest and sweet and gave me some good old season 1 flashbacks.

11.I really thought that the last time Lor gets together with Chris will be forever and they’ll actually end up happy together in a long-lost-lovers-unite and Ross and Rachel kinda way but I was pleasantly surprised that the writers of the show didn’t take that route. I’m so glad Luke Danes is the one but I wish they’d shown a little more about what happens with them.

12.When Emily Gilmore says to Rory, “So this is it. This is the last time we’ll see you for who knows how long”. That was such an emotional moment and it finally sinks in that the show is over. ( Thank God I’m in 2016 and that in fact means I’ve only got to wait 2 months but will it ever be the same?)

13.The Bon Voyage party is one of the best episodes of the entire show and obviously so because I live for mushy farewells and series finales. Everyone being involved in a town event one last time was so much fun to watch.

They don’t make such shows anymore. If you ask me to name some cool crime/mystery shows to watch, I can give you 5 off the top of my head. But if you’re talking about drama shows that make you feel all warm and fuzzy, I’ll be at a loss of words. It was so great watching the series again. It has some great laughs, insanely quotable scenes and one of the most amazing mother-daughter relationships on screen. Stay tuned for more gushing…come November 25!

  2. I absolutely love Gilmore Girls, I didn't watch it when I was younger but now I'm on season 2. Stars Hollow is the cutest little town and I actually got to see the café in real life when I visited the Warner Brothers Studios - I definitely had a fangirl moment. Oh and I'm loving these Friday night dinners too haha xx

  23. I never got into this show when it aired on TV. Something about the characters REALLY irritated me LOL. Maybe being slightly older I might actually enjoy and appreciate it more. I'll have to see if I can find any eps to binge on

    1. Hahah! Yeah some people do say that about it too but they're just funny in a goofy way and it's definitely not everyone's thing. :) Maybe you can watch the new special episode that's coming up and decide if you like it!

  24. I just finished rewatching, and I've had so many of the same thoughts. It's so interesting to have an older perspective to for opinions on characters, and I love picking out the little inconsistencies throughout the show. It still makes me feel so warm and fuzzy though. I've loved this post!
