The Gilmore Comeback

gilmore comeback

I’m sure you’ve seen it by now. I’ve seen it no less than six times (Probably more by now. I wrote this on Thursday.). THERE’S A NEW GILMORE GIRLS TRAILER IN TOWN.

First impressions? You cannot add Amy Schumer to the Gilmore Girls powerhouse mix because it will put me on overload. Can you imagine the conversations? The possible song and dance routines!? Also, how cute was it that Amy came back and said she would have loved Lorelai? But come on, who wouldn’t?

And on that subject, also mentioned in the short trailer is one of my favorite people, HBO host John Oliver. The question: would he find Lorelai hot? The answer: queued up for you courtesy of the lovely folks at Vulture.

Also noted, Pop Tarts have not gone out of style in the Gilmore house. I don’t remember the last time I had a Pop Tart, but I do remember the last time I wished I could eat like a Gilmore Girl. It was every second, all the time, always. Do any of you remember the scene where Lorelai and Rory are preparing an “appetizer platter” of every junk food imaginable and just when you think they’re finished, Rory sprinkles mini marshmallows over the whole thing? #MetabolismGoals

Then there’s the theme song, hitting me right in the soul. I’m a notorious theme song belter and the Gilmore Girls theme is one of my favorites. It always gives me the warm and fuzzies. I’m so glad they haven’t gotten rid of it, or worse, changed it to something atrocious. I’m looking at you Dawson’s Creek.

The release date for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life is set for November 25. I know I said a minute ago I couldn’t wait for November, but at the same time, Gilmore Girls has always been a fall show to me so I’m actually not that mad about the wait. When the time comes I’m going to put on a sweater, make some hot chocolate, and settle in for the binge watch of my life.

In the meantime, who’s down for a re-watch? It may be a little early to start, but I’ve had enough procrastination in my life lately so I say we go for it. If you want to watch with me, kick off season one whenever you feel like it and tweet me your comments using #GilmoreGang. I’ll be compiling tweets to add to my recaps as I make my way through.
