I have a confession, much like the one in my Game of Thrones post earlier this year, to make. I have never seen Gilmore Girls. Well, I HADN’T seen Gilmore Girls up until last week. I actually started watching it back in 2014, but I kind of forgot about it after the first two episodes as my grandmother fell ill and I barely had time for anything, let alone television. This week I finally decided to tick it off of my to-watch list, and I’m currently almost at the end of season two (although by the time you read this I’m pretty sure I’ll be finished at the rate I’m going).
Guys, I am LOVING IT. I now understand why so many people have been telling me for years that I would love it. It’s my newest obsession. It’s so cosy and autumnal and perfect. It also reminds me of Hart of Dixie, which is another one of my favourite shows. I love anything that features cute little small towns and quirky townspeople, sue me!
I love the characters, I love the soundtrack (THE SOUNDTRACK!!!!!! OH MY GOD!!!!!). I love the mother-daughter relationship between Rory and Lorelei – it reminds me how lucky I am that I have such a close relationship with my own mother. And seeing Chad Michael Murray & Jared Padalecki in the same show brought back ALL the 00s nostalgia for me (A Cinderella Story & Supernatural, anyone?). Although I’m not gonna lie, I’m a little bit obsessed with Jess. Okay, maybe not a little bit – more like a lot. I could write an entire separate post on the topic of his hair alone, but I won’t bore you all with that.
Yes, I’m almost twenty years late to hype, but better late than never, right? Do you love the show? Who’s your favourite character? What’s your favourite episode? I have ALL the questions so let me know in the comments!
