If you have not watched the Gilmore Girls Revival yet, DO NOT read this.
There will be many, many spoilers.
I am just letting you know this now.
Do not blame me if you read something you don’t want to know…
This is your chance.
You can still turn back.
There will be cussing.
Just wanted to give you a warning.
You’re in this now.
I don’t even know where to start.
I have been so excited for the revival ever since I heard that there was a slight possibility it might happen.
People keep asking me if it was everything I hoped it would be.
The answer is yes…and no.
I suffered all day at work just waiting until 5 so I could go home and watch some GG!
I ordered some Chinese food. I was also going to order some pizza, you know, watch this thing Gilmore Girls style. I did not end up getting the pizza. My stomach is only so big.
Four separate episodes.
Different feelings for all of them.
I am probably going to be hopping all over the place so please stick with me.
I did not like Winter. Nope. Not at all.
I actually had to stop in the middle of it.
A friend popped over and since it was Black Friday, we popped out for some 50% off at Hobby Lobby.
I came back home, and started it again.
I pretty much suffered through the first episode.
The acting was too cheesy, the make-up to thick, a boy-friend no one remembers! Even Rory! So if he is so forgettable, why the fuck is he even in the show?
I was texting a friend during the first episodes and it was pretty entertaining. She watched them during the day so she had already been there.
I was pretty picky in the beginning.
I felt like Lorelei was wearing WAY too much make-up and it just made her look really old.
It got a little better as time went on though.
And I’m sorry. Rory is 32, considering how crazy motivated and what-not that she was during the actual series, I have a VERY hard time believing that she still didn’t actually have a job.
It made me incredibly happy when Emily ripped into Lorelei all those times.
I have often felt that Lorelei acted like a spoiled child and it was so nice seeing someone yank her head out of her ass.
Why did they make Rory a cheating whore?
She has a boyfriend.
Even though she is self-centered enough to NEVER remember him, so I guess he doesn’t really exist.
Not even that, Logan is freaking engaged.
What was the point?
Were they trying to make Rory more approachable? More like a real person?
I HATED that aspect.
Then she cheated again with a freaking Wookie!
Part of me wasn’t surprised considering she had an affair with Dean while he was married.
I LOVE how things ended up for Emily.
It was beautiful and lovely and just wonderful.
Paris was amazing.
I was a little surprised that she ran a surrogacy company though.
That is absolutely NOT where I pictured her at.
Kirk was still great.
I felt like that had too many outside actors.
I loved the show Bunheads and it really distracted me from the Gilmore Girls thing and threw me back into that show.
Don’t get me wrong. I love all those actors, but I just wish they wouldn’t have been in there.
And one more thing..
The Last 4 Words.
Now, I could understand those words if they would have fallen at the end of season 7.
I really wonder how season 7 would have went with the original directors.
I don’t really get how it’s going “full circle” as everyone calls it.
There are very few similarities between Lorelei at 16 and Rory at 32.
There is a huge difference between having a baby at 16 in 1984, and having a baby at 32 in 2017. I say 2017 because that’s what year it will be when she hypothetically has the baby.
How do we actually know that the baby is Logan’s? We have no idea the exact time line of things. Maybe it’s the wookie’s.
Also, If it is Logan’s, what will happen to the fiance when she finds out that Logan has been cheating on her?
I was just very disappointed by the 4 words.
It felt like it really belonged at the end of the series, not now.
If Jess loves Rory, he just needs to tell her. He has more balls than Luke, so he better not pathetically pine for her for the next 10 years.
I really hope they do have another “year” next year, but I keep hearing that this was it.
Now, don’t get me wrong about all of this.
I really enjoyed it.
There was just so much stuff that didn’t feel right to me.
I will most likely be watching it again so I will probably make another post then with updates on how I feel about it then.
Please let me know what you thought.
