Gilmore Girls Reviewed



hi babes!
I really took last week to just reset and relax, sometimes the holidays are really hard without my brother and life just being different so mental health is my #1 priority for survival purposes. I relaxed, spent a lot of time with Tripp, my mom, Tripp’s family, our puppies, etc. I did visit my brother’s grave on Thanksgiving and it’s never like this widely beautiful moment that I always imagine it being, I don’t cry and then have this nostalgic moment before our send-off. I go, I see, I make dumb jokes to bypass the pain and then we leave. The usual for me.
But I am here this week, back to normal. We had a pretty chaotic Sunday so I didn’t get my Monday post out but I am here to you on a Wednesday and there is no place I would rather be. I am talking about an issue that is BIG in my life and that is TV! As you MUST know by now, Gilmore Girls had a revival this weekend and it was quite the deal in our house.
                                                                                  
                                  
Mom + I had plans to make a big to do of it, especially since it was so close to mom’s birthday so we could celebrate with our favorite gals. Well the night before, we decided we couldn’t wait and we got up at 2am central when the episodes were posted..put our GG shirts on with our jammies and binged. I have SO much to say about it + even if you aren’t a GG fan, well you still may enjoy my color commentary so stick with it.

We began our binging at 2am with gas station donuts, cheetos, pop tarts and last but definitely not least, COFFEE!! We made it through Winter {Episode 1} and part of Spring {Episode 2} before we took a quick siesta. {Tripp gave up 30 minutes into it, he’s only watched the first 2 episodes of GG ever so not really a time to then skip to the revival} We got back up around 5am + started again with MANY bathroom breaks, more coffee+snacking then we finished exactly 12 hours later at 2pm. IT WAS EVERYTHING. I love nothing more than a revival/reunion of my favorite shows. [Sorry no pictures, y’all, I am not your average blogger..We were in our jammies, ZERO MAKEUP, gas station food..y’all don’t need to see that]
I am very against letting a good thing go, I want it to stay around FOREVER. Not quite sure what that says about my personality but nevertheless, that’s how I am.
We have reached the portion of the blog where I give my thoughts..it is hard for me to be objective to things that I truly love but I am going to my very best to not just say..I LOVED IT ALL! 

In no particular order, my thoughts on the GG Revival-
                -The opening was perfect: snow + “That felt good”
                -I love that everyone is back from Lane+Kirk all the way to Reverend Skinner doing the wedding
                -Logan is a major babe + I don’t hate that she is with him
                -I do hate that he is engaged + ugh Paul, go away
                -The musical number was 9 minutes too long [10 minutes total]
                -Luke’s speech in Fall=swoon!
                -Jess is pretty + I totally find his character more idyllic for Rory in the revival
                -Dean is + always has been the BIGGEST BABE [love the cornstarch throwback]
                -All the music is perfection, especially the wedding song [Reflecting Light- Sam Phillips]
                -Hi Mr. Troubadour, missed ya!
                -The Musical Number in Summer is my least favorite part
                -Wait the musical number wasn’t my least favorite part, I forgot about the one night stand with Wookie
                -Lorelai’s fridge is giving me life!
                -I kinda love that Rory doesn’t have her crap together because lordy, I sure don’t [super relatable]
                -I want to go to LONDON so bad!!!!!!
                -I wish I had enough money to do “Wild”
                -I want Hep Alien to go on tour and specifically come to Bham
                -Paris is my spirit animal!
                -Lorelai’s song about her + her dog is so my mom
                -I love the Christopher+Rory awkward relationship
                -Michel being gay is one of the few things that makes complete sense in my life
                -I think grief is scary + that is helping me not to judge some of the decisions the GG's have made during this revival
                -I’m okay that Luke+Lorelai don’t have kids, they have Rory + April + that feels like enough
                -“You should find my bedtime rituals endearing by now, what’s taking you so long” is me to Tripp in life!
                -Let’s all be honest that Doyle+Paris will work things out + get back together..it’s destiny
                -The stress tap dancing is so bizarre but also, probably something I would do
                -I.MISS.RICHARD. [life is unfair]
               -The ending makes complete sense to me + I kinda loved it


That pretty much sums it up! What did you guys think?! Let's talk!!

  1. I don't have Netflix, so I can't wait - I am confused though. Does she end up with Logan??? He was always my favorite!

  2. YAASS to all of this! Them taking up what felt like forever with the musical was ridiculous..I kept waiting for it to be over/or to have a point and it just kept going. Also, the whole Paul thing was silly. At first it was kind of a funny joke, then it's like really, move on. lol All in all I agree it was great and I'm the same way I don't want it to end. GG was such an integral part of my childhood and I still watch the reruns frequently (okay last night to be exact). Jess, Dean, and Logan are all dreamy even older, but I guess I'll always be #TeamJess. It just makes perfect sense. And last but not least the wedding was perfection and I'm so happy they finally got their perfect ending! :) That was extremely long I know, but everybody is being all hush hush on their blogs as to not release spoilers, so I had to talk to someone lol.
