Oi, with the poodles already! A Gilmore Girls Tribute
Now that the new promo posters (main image) have been released for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, many fans are welcoming the Gilmore Girls back into their life - but they never left mine! I’m a little obsessed. I’ve decided that Gilmore Girls is probably in my top 3 favourite shows ever, along with Friends and Rupaul’s Drag Race. Judge me all you want, but the show is brilliant.
I first caught the Gilmore Girls on E4; it would be on after I got back from school - anyone remember that run? Instantly, I was hooked. I think it’s the enduring characters you fall for first - Emily, Paris, Luke, Kirk, Jess - then the New England small town setting, the humour and finally the overall hodgepodge of perfectly congruous themes: food (lots of food), academia, wealth, love, sex, music and film.
I can’t tell you how excited I am for the return of Gilmore Girls. I’ve been binge-watching the whole 7 seasons in the run-up to November 25th - I’m currently on my second run-through. Never have I felt so attached to a TV show. So to celebrate I’ve put together a list of my favourite Gilmore Girls quotes. It’s a little season 1/2 heavy, but who knows, that leaves it open for a part 2 and 3!
I lolled so hard at Emily and Lorelai's back and forth in S01E18
And when Lorelai about being in publishing in S02E04
Like every Paris zinger ever including this in S04E17
When everyone piled on Jess in S02E08
Richard and Dean bonding in S02E12
Lorelai pretty much sums up her overblown relationship with coffee in S01E05
And her turn and glare bit in S02E06
And finally this.
