I’ll admit it. I’m obsessed. Not too long ago I discovered Gilmore Girls on Netflix. Yep. I only just made the acquaintance of Lorelai, Rory, Sookie, Luke and the others. I realize that it’s been over 11 years since the seven-season show was cancelled, but somehow I missed the Stars Hollow train. It’s not surprising, really. I tend to stumble over new trends long after everyone else has moved on.
Gilmore Girls is fun, happy, sad and dramatic. Real life happens in Stars Hollow. I’m loving the zippy dialogue, the setting in a quaint town on cute overload, and all of the quirky characters, even the acerbic French concierge, Michel, “People are particularly stupid today. I can’t talk to any more of them.”
If you’ve never watched Gilmore Girls, you should start now – right now. If you enjoyed it before, it’s time to revisit some old friends. Where else will you get great all-purpose lines like “Oy with the poodles already.” Not since Boston Legal have I been this enamored of a television show.
