Binge Watching: Gilmore Girls A Year In The Life  
It's 2 in the morning here, but I couldn't go to sleep before I finish Gilmore Girls A Year In The Life.

Before going into the spoilery part under the cut I just want to say it was great to have this show back... I know we had so many "recycled" shows this past couple of years, and I always complain I need something original, but this was such an unexpected welcome surprise. There are a few show that can make me feel like this!


And after this mushy intro here my take on this 4 parts Gilmore GIrls Event.

I LOVED Lorelai' storyline.I was glad to see she was with Luke, and they were working pretty well as a couple. I loved everything that went on between her and Emily, from the awful post funeral moment, through the therapy to the beautiful phone call they had while Lorelai was in the wildness. I really enjoyed the storyline about the Inn and how Lorelai had to ask money to Emily in order to take the next step, and Emily put on the table the same deal as the one in the pilot. Such a beautiful circle. The wedding in the middle of the night was almost perfect even though Jess was suppose to be there for Luke... Not Lane. Jess is Luke's family... That was kind of wrong. I'm just glad Luke and Lorelai ended up getting married! <3

When it comes to Rory instead... Well, I'm not so happy... I didn't like the whole Logan thing. He was engaged and she had a boyfriend. A boyfriend who was just a comic relief, but still. I can't believe Lorelai was okay with it when Rory confessed she was seeing Logan. That was terrible, and the only positive thing I can see in it is the end, that brings the whole story in a full circle:

  • Rory got pregnant in the end...

  • And it's definitely Logan's.

  • Logan is the same as Christopher.

  • Rory went to Christopher asking him how he took it when Lorelai decided to be a single mom and Christopher was, you know... Christopher...

  • So Rory is now in Lorelai's shoes. She's going to raise her kid alone (with Lorelai) and sort of live the same life as her mom... and:

  • HER MOM ENDED UP WITH LUKE, SO RORY WILL END UP WITH JESS in the next 4 episode series.

I mean it's so obvious. Logan IS Christopher and Jess IS Luke. That's how it's going to end! :D

Jess is the guy for her. They're perfect together. He's now a grown up and he has it together. He is the perfect guy for her. The scene where he looks at her through the window BROKE MY HEART! I was waiting for them to get together. I can't believe they didn't and we wasted time on Logan in that way!

The other thing that made me sad was Dean's cameo! Too short! It was sweet, but it felt forced that way... and sad! Sookie had a better cameo, even if it was short as well! It was very funny and sweet! I understand maybe it was too expensive to have Melissa McCarthy since she's now a movie actress, but Jared Padalecki and Milo Ventimiglia are still TV actors, I can't believe it was too expensive to give them more space...

Funniest Scene: the Musical and the Meeting about the Gay Pride.
Most Moving Scene: Lorelai says to Rory to drop the "the" and leave the title as just Gilmore Girls, Lorelai calls Emily and tells her her storu about Richard.
Most Beautiful Scene: The Evening Wedding Set up, Rory, Logan and the Boys go around the town in these awesome hats.
Most Shocking Scene: Mom, I'm pregnant.

Now I just have to wait to read what A.S. Palladino has to say about the last 4 words. And I need her to say that Rory will follow Lorelai's step and end up with Jess!

So, what are your thoughts about it? Did you liked it?

Okay, now if I could have a Friends Reunion I would be completely content!

Time to go to sleep. It's 3 am now! Bye!!!

Though I don't get the specifics I totally get the feeling - I get the same way about my shows and ships! You are not crazy at all. XD
