I was lucky enough to see the first two episodes of Gilmore Girls, and I wrote a review! I’m quoting an excerpt here, and then you have to click on the link to read the rest of it. There are no major plot details in the review, because I’d like to be able to keep getting screeners from Netflix.
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life follows Rory, Lorelai and her mother Emily (Kelly Bishop) over four seasons, beginning at Winter and ending in Fall. Written and directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino and her husband Daniel Palladino, A Year in the Life successfully recreates the tone of the original series. Fans will be happy to see their favourite characters, especially Lorelai’s sometimes love interest Luke (Scott Patterson) and Rory’s frenemy Paris Geller (Liza Weil). Also returning are Stars Hollow residents, including Lane and Sookie, Taylor, Kirk, Miss Patty, Babette and Paul Anka. Absent from the miniseries is Lorelai’s father Richard, following the death of actor Edward Herrmann in 2014. The first episode is a heartfelt tribute to the actor, with a moving funeral scene that briefly brings Lorelai and Emily closer together.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go and make GIFs of Paul Anka (the dog).
