TV: Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life – “Winter”


* warning: contains spoilers from the “Winter” episode of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life *


They’re back!!! We’re back watching them!!! All is right in the world. It feels like it’s been so long, yet at the same time like no time has pasted at all. When was that moment for you? The moment in watching the first episode of the Netflix Gilmore Girls revival that made you realize that this is real, they’re back on out screens, and our beloved characters where going to grace us with their presence again. Was it the voice over of iconic Gilmore Girls quotes? The crane shot of Stars Hollow? The gazebo? And this is only in the first 30 seconds of the episode! What a journey we’re about to embark on.

Favourite Moment from the Episode: The part of the episode that got me really excited (apart from the whole episode) was the moment that we saw all three Gilmore girls: Rory (Alexis Bledel), Lorelai (Lauren Graham), and Emily (Kelly Bishop) in the same room for Friday night dinner. Because that was one of the roots of the show; a mother-mother/daughter-daughter relationship, and an arrangement to meet every Friday night for dinner. Oh course; what makes this revival different from the original series is the absence of the Gilmore patriarch Richard (the late Edward Herrmann) who always seemed to be a mediator on many occasions. In his absence, theses characters are left on their own, and as we see in these scene, he’s presence is greatly missed.


“I’m going to therapy with my mother.”

– Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham)
