Grab a cup of coffee - 'Gilmore Girls' is back

Grab a cup of coffee - 'Gilmore Girls' is back

But even if Gilmore was never a colossal competitor, it was a big hit among women under the age of 35, which was exactly the show's demographic target.

The pop culture event I'm most thankful for this holiday season hasn't even happened yet. So perhaps we need to go back in time?

The new episodes will pick up eight years after the events of the series finale, which found Luke and Lorelai reunited after a frustrating break-up and Rory turning down a proposal from Logan to pursue her journalism dreams as a pool reporter on then-Sen. In the pilot, it is seen in the middle of the block.

When it comes to the love life of Rory Gilmore it's no secret that bad boy Jess Mariano is the fan favorite. Sometimes, the more you want to jump into something with both feet, the more important it is, and the more time and care it warrants. This is the type of back and forth banter that takes place throughout the entire series. That's because back in 2007, the network wasn't sure if the show would be back for an eighth season. On your drive through the northwestern part of CT, you will stop in towns like New Milford, Litchfield and Washington, stopping at The Hickory Stick Bookshop (Stars Hollow Books), Farmhouse Antiques (Mrs Kim's), the Bridgewater Village Store (Luke's) and even this iconic gazebo in New Milford.

Take a look at my video review above of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life for more on the return to Stars Hollow.

When Lorelai calls Chilton to discuss its hefty enrollment fees, she walks around the living room of a stranger's house. But they will likely be between Rory and Lorelai, because BFFs and mother/daughter love lasts 4ever.

In terms of a series finale this is a pretty good one.

So while there's plenty of trademark whimsy, there are also indulgences like the musical number in the third episode, which is clever but drags on too long. Emily asks. "What is it Christmas already?"

Rory's romantic past is a factor as all of her ex-boyfriends appear in the series "one way or another", says Bledel.

Buckle in for Emily's sharp clap-backs, an answer about which boy Rory ends up with, what becomes of Lorelai and Luke, what's bugging Taylor, how Lane's kids are doing and everything else you miss about this wonderfully warm-hearted show.

This is perhaps the most shocking part of the first episode. And, above all, Lorelai and Rory are there for each other just as they've always been. For one thing, there is that series-defining and nearly relentlessly seductive repartee - especially between Graham's Lorelai and her mother Emily, played so tautly by Kelly Bishop. "It was one of the happiest times in my life".

Sherman-Palladino says what is great about writing for the show is that "it never was going to run out of conflict". "After all, you're me". They got a deal on brown paint.
