I did a video on my YouTube channel about a similar topic, so feel free to head over there if you don’t want to read!
At 3 AM EST, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life is dropping on Netflix, and I’ll be back in my favorite hometown.
I’ll be able to return to Luke’s Diner and do my homework at the counter. Then I can sneak a burger and fries into the town hall meeting and listen to Taylor’s next crazy idea to drum up tourism.
Gilmore Girls was the signature show of my childhood. It was one of the many shows my mom and I sat down to watch.
If I were home, my mom and I would get our favorite snacks and settle down on the couch to watch all four of the new episodes. Instead, she’s working at the hospital and I’m 3,000 miles away finishing up my senior year.
Lorelai and Rory are two characters that my mom and I have always identified with. My mom and I recognized many of the trials and laughs that the Gilmore Girls experienced. We’re not as snappy with our pop culture references, and our lives didn’t always move nearly as fast.
At some point we opened our life to a third, and that third became a part of our family on April 2, 2016.
My mom isn’t exactly Lorelai, but what makes them similar is their tenacity and entrepreneurial spirit. Not to mention their unconditional love for their daughter.
I’ve been compared to Rory on a number of occasions as more of my family has watched the show and saw the resemblance. My book collection is out of control and I’m studying writing and communication.
There’s infinitely more to the show that I’ve left out. The show was more than I could have ever wanted, and its up there in my Top 5 shows with Parks and Recreation and The Newsroom.
Are there any shows that have held a high place in your life? Who is a character that you identify closely with?
